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.)

A while back I had wireless mouse plug in the right hand USB hub. While in my laptop bag, the plastic piece broke off and the prongs were bent. Since then that hub has not worked. Yesterday I went to plug in my Yoga and accidentally tried to insert it into the same USB hub. Now the laptop will not power on. The charge light is light when plugged in, but it will not power on with or without being plugged in. The light on the power button comes on for about 4 seconds than shuts off. No sounds from the laptop or lights on the keyboard during that time. It is out of warranty by almost a year. Any suggestions?

Hello and welcome,
 
Have you straightened the pins and made sure they're not touching each other or the socket surround?  This is typical of a power short.

I just got my Yoga 2, and I am really enjoying it, however, I am running into a contant problem of the WiFi connection going 'limited' when connected to the network.  I never lose WiFi connection. I have updated my driver to the latest version available on the support site (17.0.0.34), and disabled the power managment for the WiFi, as many other posts have suggested. None of my other devices are having issues.  My router is an Apple Time Capsule.

Hey y'all.  My baby's sick, and I am out of ideas about what might help. I'm a hair away from giving up.  Roughly a week ago it started doing a couple small, kinda weird things. The buzzer connected to the windows button below the display started buzzing when pressure was exerted on other parts of the laptop; if I lifted it by the palm rest to the side of the trackpad, for example. The other is that I could not reduce the screen brightness. The option was unavailable in battery saver settings (win10) and the slider in the full display settings did nothing. Maybe a full day after these symptoms appeared, it just...stopped. I used it, closed the lid, than maybe an hour later I returned to it and it did nothing. Well, next to nothing. When I press power or the lenovo button, the white light comes on, solid, for about 4 seconds, than turns off. Its not a blink, because it doesnt repeat. If its plugged in, the heatsink and fan exhaust get extremely hot very rapidly. No other response is apparent. I've taken it apart looking for loose or broken connections, capacitors, obvious shorts, and everything looks fine. I was going to reflash bios but it doesnt  boot enough to do that....  ... She's effed, isn't she?

I have a Yoga2 13 model 20344 that will not boot up at all. The keyboard will light up and let me toggle the backlight on and off but the caps light will not turn on. I thought this was a bios error issue so I took the back off, disconnected the battery and desoldered a leg of the bios battery to default the bios... didn't do anything. I tried disconnecting everything except the keyboard, battery and display to test if another component was shorting out and still no change. I also tried hooking up the HDMI to an external monitor and it didn't work (I knew it wouldn't, but tried it anyway). No sounds are made by the computer at all.... I am thinking it is a bad motherboard but am open to any other suggestions.Thanks in advance

I even tried disconnecting the battery and turning it on without the battery plugged in.... same result. I can turn on/off the keyboard backlight, but caps lock does not do anything.I have tried resetting the bios by disconnecting the bios battery (this model had to be soldered off then back onto the motherboard) and system battery then holding the power button for about 60 seconds. Didn't make any difference.I also tried connecting to a TV through teh HDMI output to see if any video came through.

I can not believe how many issues I have found online with the Yoga 2.  Whatever, it's faulty.  That's no longer to be decided - however - I am in need of the actual Touchscreen Driver.  Nowhere on this site have I been able to find the Touchscreen driver - ONLY the touchpad driver.  The Display driver did not appear to have a sub driver containing the touchscreen...and since Lenovo doesn't offer live chat I am stuck here on these forums looking for a driver for something that should be readily available considering all of the touchscreen issues this thing seems to have.  The touchscreen simply does not work, and in DevMgmt it says the driver is missing.  So, I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction to get this thing working. Thanks.

I know this isn't the newest model, but I just purchased it new (on offer) by mid 2015, so I just have it for a good 2 years! I don't see it on the list of affected models, while it CLEARLY IS affected. Will we see a BIOS update to target the Spectre vulnerability? I have always taken Lenovo for giving good support for their hardware. Surely I will have to consider a different brand, if I cannot count on security updates for hardware just a little over 2 years old. (I'm taking suggestions as to which manufacturer is giving better support). At least put all models affected on the list, and just admit that they will not receive an update. So at least we know what we can expect!

Hi Everyone, I'm at my wits end and was hoping someone might be able to help me understand what exactly I need to do, purchase to bring my laptop back to life. Long story short, I have had this for just over 2 years, no more warranty and the hard drive I believe is going out/has gone out. It all started with a failed windows 10 upgrade, kept looping, finally I blew away I guess everything on it. Now when I am trying to re-instal windows 8.1 it tells me that it cannot because the hard disk may fail soon. I can get mostly through the windows setup but it always ends up failing. My question is, can someone help me identify what exactly needs to be replaced? I am fairly tech savy good at following directions and installing things by myself. (garbage disposals, haha). What I am not good at is trying to track down what hard drive to buy would be? I hate to bring it to best buy as its $200 just for a diagnosis and then whatever to fix it on top of that.  Can anyone offer insight and help me become enlightened? Thanks so much, L

Despite that, its battery life isn't good. It works about 3-3,5 hours in Chrome. In task manager I've noticed that Yoga Mode Control is constantly using 15-30% CPU and its battery usage is described as very high. After disabling it, I can't switch to the tablet mode and keyboard and touchpad don't turn off. Is there somebody who has Yoga laptop and experience similar problem?

Every 10-40 minutes, the application I'm currently working in [whither it be skype, L4D2, or firefox] becomes unresponsive, and after a minute or two, the window turns white, notifying me that it's not responding. This unresponsiveness quickly spreads to other open processes, rendering them frozen as well. I can still use the mouse, and it appears rainmeter still responds [updates, showing barely any CPU usage].

Steps I've taken to try and resolve this:
Using only one main program, still does it
turning the computer off and on again
Memtest is clean
chkdisk passes
MBAM/MSE scans return nothing
defragged
no memory overflows that I can see

While troubleshooting, I noticed that during the 'fit of unresponsiveness' the disk usage light on my tower is solid, but when I looked at the disk usage in the resource monitor, no processes whatsoever were using it [screenshot related]

If any more specifications are needed, I'll be happy to elaborate.
Thanks!

Hi guys, hope you can help me please. I'm not too computer savvy so sorry if I'm missing something important or I say something dumb. I'm really frustrated and I'm trying my best to learn and solve this problem.
So I bought this Vaio with Core i5-3210M, 4Gb Ram, Windows 8 64 bit. I had really high hopes for it, coming from an i3. For the first few weeks it worked fine, but then it started to freeze while watching movies. Then it started happening all the time, and the cooling fan became consistently noisy for working at full capacity.
I was used to opening task manager on older systems when this happened to see if there was a non-responding program and force it closed, so I noticed Task Manager offers some more features in Win 8. Here, I see that CPU usage is high, staying always around 70% and from time to time reaching 100. At this moment, the process taking the biggest slice is called VCS System Tray with 58%.
What's perhaps more concerning, is that Disk usage is almost constantly on 100%. And by this I mean it reaches 100 and stays there for long periods of time, perhaps up to 20 minutes, then it falls down a few seconds and up again to 100. During this time the computer is excruciatingly painful to use. To even open a program takes forever. When this happens, it seems that Chrome is at the top of the list of processes with most disk usage, with about 1-2Mbps, but this sometimes changes and the list can be led by System, Utorrent, Octoshape, VCS System Tray, Communication...

Hello All, I have an issue with my YOGA 700 laptop when logged in multiple accounts simultaneously. Whenever an account is left logged on and the user is switched as opposed to logging off, the cpu usage ramps up very high with several RUNDLL32 processes being the culprit. I have checked the RUNDLL32 processes with Process Explorer and the command line are as follows:C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\EnableAutoRotation.dll,RunCustomMonitor The directory is as follows: C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\ The only solution I have found is restarting the laptop.

Also, the rundll32 processes only run high cpu on one account at a time and there doesn't seem to be a preference for a specific account, all of them are plagued one at a time with the problem. Disabling the Yoga Mode Control service is a fix but that breaks the mode control which is essential in this laptop.

My laptop (Lenovo Y500 Laptop | Lenovo US) has a 1TB 5400rpm hard drive C: and it also has a 24GB chached SSD D:. The link only shows a 16, but mine was 24. Today, I left my computer idle while I was at class (I'm in college) and when I came back it was frozen on the start up screen Lenovo Logo. As customary with computer problems, I turned it off and turned it on again. It booted up fine, maybe the tiniest bit slow, but nothing really different from the norm. But, when I opened up Chrome, my entire computer froze up after about five seconds, and I had to force shut down. This happened about 10 times (not just with Chrome, but with explorer and Task Manager too). Weird thing is, I only got one BSOD, for MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. When it magically started up without immediately freezing after the first click, I scanned for viruses--nothing changed. I CCleaned the temp files and registry--still nothing. I checked for fragmentation--0% fragmented. Once I finally got Task Manager open, I started thoroughly checking all the tabs. Here's what I found:

Hi there, Duduamar ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Do an idle test
Click start type msconfig -> start up -> disable all reboot
You will have disabled all programs that start up with your pc open task manager and see if the cpu speed has dropped
 
If it has open msconfig again and turn on your firewall and av then reboot check turn on a few more check etc etc
Be warned that after the first disable all and reboot you will have disabled your firewall and av so don?t download or goto unknown web pages but it should be ok for a 2 min test
 
Update us how it goes.

Hi all,

I'm having a bit of trouble with Windows 8 on my laptop (I've named my laptop Romulus for future reference in this thread). First off, let me give you a brief history on Romulus' journey thus far:

1.) Bought pre-built from ACER with Windows 8 64-bit installed.
2.) After playing around with it for a bit, I formatted the C drive (deleting all partitions) and installed Windows 7.
3.) Hoping to test out the new Windows 8.1, I reinstalled Windows 8 (a clean install from Microsoft this time... not the original bundled version from ACER). I have yet to install 8.1.

This is where I've noticed a few problems. Specifically, my CPU and Disk usage keep spiking to 100% for no apparent reason. Literally right after booting Romulus, before running any programs/apps, I see these spikes. I boot up, go straight to the desktop, fire up Task Manager, and watch sadly as the performance graphs tease me with those tall lines. The CPU spikes only last for a second or two and usage generally stays pretty low, but I'd still like to know why it's jumping like that. Disk usage spikes to 99-100% more frequently and stays there a bit longer. I've noticed perhaps very slight performance problems and some mouse lag, but I haven't been able to prove a correlation here.

Regarding drivers, these problems arose without any drivers installed (straight Windows 8 installation). Thinking the obvious, I installed all of Romulus' drivers listed on the ACER web page for this model, but the problems persist... Read more

I could not find a solution. I have a suspicion that due to charging, laptop creates heat in some components (VRM etc), this is magnified by Rapid Charging, therefore the fans must run during charging to dissipate heat.I suspect the fans' running voltage is linked to the CPU load, so the only way for the fans to run faster to dissipate charging heat is by running the CPU at higher voltage/frequency, which in turn creates even more heat. Perhaps a simple fix would be to give an option to turn off Rapid Charging, as to reduce heat, in Lenovo Vantage. The CPU management is terrible on this laptop. I don't know if it is Intel's DPTF drivers or Lenovo's firmware, but the battery would die very quickly. I disabled Turbo Boost on battery mode and the battery life almost doubled.  I am quite dissapointed with many aspects of this laptop. There has been no update in a long time and I think there are quite a few things to fix.  Don't just fix this in the Yoga 930. You need to look after your current customers as well. PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS AND WORK ON A FIX. This laptop is so close to perfect... Thank you.

Hello, I have Yoga 3 11 with Core M proceesor. Recently I observed high temperatures o CPU when I just surf the internet, watch a youtube etc. Temperature goes up to 85-90 C degree. Its very hot touch, in the processor area. In task meneger I didnt see any suspicous things, CPU usage is normal. From time to time I use Throttle Stop to prevent BDPROHOT throttling cpu clock to 500 MHz but even with throttle, temp are high. What is the case? I have Windows 10 with FCU update.

Hi Everyone, I have a Lenovo Yoga 900 and I absolutely love it! Unfortunately after 2 years of using it  died and I could never turn it on again (Feb) I tried taking the battery off, plug it in , and press the ON bottom but nothing. I put back the battery and again nothing. Could it be possible that the motherboard is dead and if so how much will it be to replace it? Is it normal that computers like this die after 2 years of usage? I was expecting at least a 4 year range of usage for the amount of $$ invested in the computer. I want to get the same computer but now I have my doubts if it will die on me after 2 years or what caused the motherboard to die so suddenly. Any help is welcome!

As the title says my pc is bugged with the 100% disk usage issue.

The things I've tried so far are:
1. Disable BITS, Superfetch and Windows search services. Although BITS seems to gets enabled back on its own after a while.
2. Performed a chkdsk /f/r to fix the system errors.
3. Switched windows updates from automatic to manual (not sure if that helps much).

I've read through some other threads but could not find the correct solution. Is there something else that I'm missing which could possibly fix the issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Welcome to the forum. If you open task manager click at the top of disk it will sort it into order so you can then see what's using the disk it can be a short term thing while it builds it's index

A:Disk usage 100%

Hi Thank you. So this suggests lots more stuff is loading in normal mode. I use the Piriform tools, and Ccleaner may very well help, as would Dfraggler. Then I get a more adventurous and use Sysinternals, which has lots of proggies that you dont need, but is small overall and wont be a burden.  AND you can delete it when you have finished with it. Ccleaner can look for duplicates, clear out cache and trash, uninstall stuff and (accept the backup for registry entries) tidy your registry. Sysinternals; Autoruns then Load Order and Pagedfrg are the primaries. If in doubt please ask.

Hi,

My Win Vista machine seems to add or delete up to 1Gb of data on a daily basis. I have two 50G hard drives and it is the C: drive (the main one for the PC) that is displaying this activity. I basically use the PC to check personal emails and little else, so I am surprised by the disk memory changes each day. Is there a way for me to see what files are changing or being added or deleted from the disk on a daily basis? I tried to see this with Windows Explorer, but it does not show any large files with recent edit dates. So, I am thinking that there must be a better way.

Thanks for your help with this.

I don't have the specifics of the laptop, as it seems to be hit or miss if it works for a bit before slowing down to a crawl or just does it almost right after startup. Its an ASUS gaming computer ive had for about 3 years now.
Running windows 10, and starting yesterday it has begun to basically freeze and nothing will load unless you wait about 5 minutes per click.
I was able to wait and open the task manager to see the CPU usage at 100%, but had none of the processes above .1% which means it did not add up. At that time, disk was down at nothing. At one point it had flipped completely to be disk at 100% and CPU at next to nothing.
I tried a few things like turning off windows search and disabling a bunch off startup but its a slow process with how its working right now. I did manage to run Hardware Sentinel and check the drive itself as that came up on one suggestion, and to my suprise that had it at 98% health which does not suggest a bad drive to me.
My antivirus picked up something last night and removed it, i don't remember downloading anything to cause this but i figured getting rid of it might of solved the problem but to no avail.

If anyone has an idea, im open to try anything at this point.

Thanks

A:100% disk usage

Go to your "tile" screen, and type "Disk Cleanup", then click the icon for this program. Let it run through and it will tell you where you can save disk space. Be sure to click the "Clean Up System Files" button also (requires admin rights), as this will clear out old windows update backups as well.

Hello, so about a month ago I did some updates on windows 10 and after that I've gotten a lot of problems. I started to notice that my computer often would start very slow compared to before. Most of the time I could just restart and everything would be fine. Then I noticed the 100% disk usage problem when I was checking task manager and I started researching about it and I tried doing some fixes that were listed here: https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledg...nager-improve-pc-performance-on-windows-10/#d

I did all the steps there except to disable my antivirus program since it said not to do it if you only use Windows Defender, which I do. I've also done a full virus scan and the offline scan in windows defender. I also thought that it might be my web browser's fault so I stopped using Firefox and I tried Google chrome too but it didn't help. I've searched a lot about this problem now and it really feels like I tried everything that people recommend. The only other thing that I think might fix something is cleaning my pc which I haven't done a single time yet and it's about 1.5 years old so there's a lot of dust but I'm really scared that something might break so that's why I haven't done it yet. Also after I did some of the steps in the guide it fixed the slow starting speed but I still randomly get the 100% disk problem and everything becomes really slow. Hopefully there's someone that knows how to fix this problem, ... Read more

A:100% Disk Usage

Hi,

What type of hard drive is it standard or solid state? Does it sit at 100% all the time or during a particular operation? In task manager what is the name of the process that seems to to be utilizing most of the hard disks resources if any?

On a side note could be that your hard disk is reaching end of life do you know how old it is?

Thanks

Steve
