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.)

Guten Morgen, ich habe mir vor ca. einem Monat ein Lenovo L380 Yoga gekauft.Schon seit dem Anfang habe ich verschiedene Probleme. Zum Beispiel ist die Maus nach dem Starten verschwunden und ich kann das Convertible nur über Touch verwenden. Nach einem Neustart ist das Problem meistens wieder behoben. Ein weiteres Problem tritt bei Stifteingaben auf. Wenn etwas in OneNote / Word / PDF Annontater oder sonstigen Programmen geschrieben wird (Handschriftlich), geht ab und zu die Radier-Funktion nicht. Zudem funktioniert auch der Fingerabdruck-Scanner nur sporadisch.Was ich bisher verrsucht habe:- Treiber für die entsprechenden Funktionen deinstalliert und eine Neuinstallation durchgeführt- Laut dem Programm Lenovo Vantage sind alles Komponenten in Ordnung. Es wäre sehr hilfreich, wenn mir jemand mit dem beschriebenen Porblem helfen könnte. Gruß

My lenovo l380 yoga has some kind of layer peeling off the glass touchscreen, and on the bezels as well. This is the 3rd time I've had a problem with this device in 3 months. I don't want to send my computer to the depot back AGAIN, as it took around 1 month last time, and I spent so many hours on the customer service line, trying to find out the status, and waiting for parts.Im not very sure what this is, but I don't think this is supposed to happen, and if anyone could help out, that would be appreciated. The image of the peeling is below.

A few weeks ago, my L380 yoga just underwent a motherboard replacement, and that took such a long time. Now, ANOTHER PROBLEM HAS SURFACED. THE TRACKPOINT ON THE LAPTOP IS BROKEN. The TrackPoint is my main input device for pointing, and without it, I struggle to use my computer effectively. I have tried checking drivers and reinstalling, but nothing worked. An external USB mouse works as well as the touchpad, but I RARELY USE THOSE AS THEY ARE INCONVENIENT. 
 
 

A:LENOVO L380 YOGA broken SECOND PROBLEM IN 2 MONTHS!

The TrackPoint only moves up and down, and when I move it sideways, either way, it doesn't move or skips right to the side of the screen.
If anyone has a quick fix for this please please please let me know. I need this computer to do important work, I don't want to send my computer to them and wait for who knows how long.

As stated in the title my Trackpoint is causing my cursor to drift to the right side of the screen. It only does this whenever I physically pick up the laptop or bend the right corner of the palmrest. I've tried to rule out any software related issues by updating the OS to the latest Windows Build, updating BIOS to 1.13, drivers for UltraNav. Once I realized none of this worked I rolled the BIOS back to 1.12 and restored the unit but it is still happening. If I turn off the Trackpoint in Control Panel -> Mouse the issue stops. I do not remember this happening when I first opened it. Any idea as to what is causing it? Thanks!

Hi all,Recently, one of my friends bought a ThinkPad L380 laptop. I would say the internal speaker has improved. The bass goes deeper and treble is more extended compared to the older model
To tweak the sound:1. Right-click the photo below, save as Desktop. You may try both to see which EQ you prefer.

 
2. Go to Start > All Apps (All Programs) > Dolby > Dolby Audio.
 
3. Drag it onto the Dolby Atmos application.Do take note that if you were to connect your external speaker/headphone to the headphone jack, change the EQ to others, or off. As this EQ preset is only optimized for L380, L380 Yoga, S2 and S2 Yoga Speakers, not optimized for your external speaker/headphone.Hope you enjoy this tweaks!

Hi there, I have an L380 Yoga with 16GB RAM and 256GB SSD. I was wondering if I could upgrade only the RAM to 32 GB by plugging in a RAM card to the other available RAM slot. Would I also need to upgrade the SSD? One more thing, if I am going to upgrade the RAM, does it need to be of the same brand? Would it make a difference, if I use a different brand? Thanks in advance.

I just bought this laptop and I must say it is really not what i expected..So many faulty small issues. For instance, microsoft powerpoint and word does not always work when using in tablet mode, but switching it back to laptop mode and then back to tablet mode it works again.. I just wanted to close a ppt file but this machine couldn't even do that. Will never ever ever ever buy a lenovo again. absolute **bleep** company with an absolute rubbish website. I even had to google how i could post a message or just ask a question..  for anyone looking at this particular model, don't buy it. The screen flickers, settings are not saved that are supposed to be saved. things like ticking the 'show pen battery' on, doesn't even work all the time.. Who even designed and made these **bleep** laptops.. I thought thinkpads would be great but they are absolutely not worth your money

Dear community,  I am thinking about getting a Thinkpad L380 Yoga since I need a more portable device than my T570. I did some research and found some issues I would like to ask real users of the notebook about. It would be great if some of you may take some time to answer my questions.  Display:  My T570 got a non-glaring screen, so usually the brightness is set to the lowest (or second lowest) value. Is this also possible with the L380 or is a higher brightness necessary under normal indoor conditions? Durability:  One reviewer stated that the build quality of the L380 is not on par with other Thinkpads. Is that true? Have you experienced damages caused by daily use? Active Pen Most reviews only mentioned very basic information on the Active Pen. As I am going to use it very often, I would like to know if there are some issues with it like jitters? If there is anything else you dislike about the L380 it would be great to know. Thanks in advance for your answers!

I am looking to possibly upgrade the SSD and RAM in my L380 Yoga. Normally I would upgrade it myself but I have read the manual and do not have a lot of experience with opening laptops (since they started using clips instead of screws). Is this a service Lenovo offers or do I need to try to find someone local with experience on laptops like these? Does anyone who has opened one have any tips should I try it on my own?

9 out of 10 times (maybe more) the fingerprint scan DOES NOT WORK. WIth the added bonus that Windows 10 does not allow to supress user login, so annoying PIN comes mandatory. Im very dissapointed but mostly strangled since my mobile phone, motog (lenovo) 2016 mid-low range of 1/10 price of PC, recognizes my fingerprints almost ALWAYS. the only way to improve the issue on the lenovo PC is to re-scan the finger(s),which last maybe couple of days. why on earth a 1KE PC needs re-scan every two days while a 100E mobile can last adjusted for a year? only lenovo engineers know

I've just purchased the L380 Yoga Thinkpad. Happy so far but noticed that it has 2 USB-C ports. One is labelled as the charging port, but right beside that is a second USB-C port. If I was ever to accidentally plug the provided 65W USB-C charger into the wrong USB-C port, would that damage the computer or just not charge it...?

Hey! Does anyone has any idea where I can buy a new Pen for the ThinkPad L380 Yoga? Most of the Pens available are made for a diffrent model and are therefore too long to fit in the pen silo of my TP L380 Yoga. The Pen that it came with it is ~123mmThe Pens available on the internet are 219mm (so they would stick out the silo and probably break) Also: is there a way to change the mine or do I have to buy a new Pen everytime? Kind regardsQ

Hello Lenovo & community, I wanted to petition for the L380 Yoga to please be accepted into the LVFS[1], so that GNU/Linux users can upgrade device firmware using their OS distribution of choice. I can see Lenovo has already embraced the LVFS project, having submitted firmware for many dozens of Think products; even very similar models to the L380 Yoga are supported[2]! Thank you very much for this gesture. Please consider also enabling this machine for use with the service, to be able to upgrade things like hardware initialization + BIOS/UEFI, Wacom touch firmware, IR camera firmware, and the ThinkPad USB-C dock firmware, etc. I can see the NVMe SSD that comes with the L380 Yoga is already supported! Once again, thank you for your efforts, and for contributing to the libre and open-source community. Kind regards,Jean [1] https://fwupd.org[2] https://fwupd.org/lvfs/devicelist

Hello, A few weeks ago I had issues with my ThinkPad and, under warranty, was exchanged for a new ThinkPad L380 Yoga (honestly, I miss my last ThinkPad). My main problem with the L380 Yoga is the Pen Pro. I am a student and use Microsoft Word and OneNote daily, I never had any problems with the pen on my last laptop. However, the bottom (eraser) button on the side of the pen does not work consistently. It'll work for a short period of time until it stops randomly; the only way to fix this is to completely restart my computer. This is very inconvenient for me as I am rarely in a position where I can afford to lose a few minutes restarting my computer that often. The top (lasso) button on the side works perfectly fine and never has any issues. I tried switching the functionalities and the eraser worked on the top, but then the lasso stopped working with the bottom button. Has anyone else had a problem with this/know a solution? I want to get this figured out before my warranty expires. Every forum I have looked at online claims that Lenovo knows about this problem but is failing to come up with a solution to help customers. I've invested way too much money in laptops from this company to have such a hard time finding a solution to such a seemingly fixable problem! Thanks,Frustrated Customer

We're trying to deploy a Lenovo L380 Yoga (docking connected over USB) with SCCM/MDT.The reason for the docking is because this laptop doesn't have an onboard NIC. The driver package has been loaded into SCCM and we're able to launch LiteTouch.https://support.lenovo.com/us/nl/downloads/ds502364But once LiteTouch is launched, the lights on the NIC go out and we get the message:"A connection to the deployment share could not be made. Check Physical connection".We're sure that the physical connection to the server is okay because we're able to download the LiteTouch file from it, also we see a DHCP entry for the laptop. I'm not sure if this is a USB driver issue, as unplugging the docking from the USB and reconnecting it makes the NIC lights turn on for a brief period of time. Other USB devices seem to work just fine E.G: mouse, keyboard, ... Is there a special driver for the USB docking to work in LiteTouch?
