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.)

Hello, On the lenovo website (in germany) there are several versions of the y530 to choose from. Of the last two one costs 1399 euro, while the other 1599. The only difference being that the latter has windows 10 installed, and the one for 1399 euro only has FreeDOS. Why a 200 euro difference only for windows 10? Is upgrading the y530 from FreeDOS to Windows 10 very difficult, or whats the issue here? Thanks in advance

Greetings! I bought laptop few days ago in Poland, with FreeDos! Honestly, I dont know about operation system, because i had order in another shop. Anyway, I have installed Windows 10, using my another laptop and base tools from Microsoft. But sure my Windows isn't activated, and may anyone help with this issue.  May I get PDK for my Windows 10 copy, using some private information from laptop, like serial number or documents? Or is there any other solutions, to get official key?  Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

I have a Lenovo B590 Laptop with FreeDOS preinstalled.

I have Windows 8.1 Professional Full Version on DVD.

With the Firmware configured as follows, will installing Windows automatically format the Hard Disk Drive with a GPT (GUID Partition Table) and remove the FreeDOS which I don't need?

Firmware Configuration (UEFI)
UEFI/Legacy Boot: UEFI Only
CSM: Disabled
Boot Mode: Diagnostics (Deactivates Quick mode)
Secure Boot: Disabled

After I have installed Windows I also want to install Linux Mint 16 so that I can Dual Boot between the 2 Operating Systems.

Should I install any Windows Programs before I install Linux or should I wait until after Linux is installed?

Thank you, Michael.

Hi everybody!
I hope somebody help me...

I bought the new laptab LENOVO B50-80 FreeDos:
Processor: Intel Core i3-4005U Dual Core Processor (3MB Cache, 1.7GHz)
RAM: 4GB DDR3L 1600MHz
Hard Drive: 500GB Hard Disk Drive
Graphics Card: Intel HD Graphics 4400
Bios: insydeh20 rev 5.0 (without advanced setting!)

I tried to install the "Windows 8.1", but during a installation i got an error (We couldn?t find any drives. To get a storage driver, click Load Driver.)
I checked in Bios, and I saw "Hard Disk: Not Detected"

I thought maybe update the Bios helps solve the problem and searched for it, but in official website I found just an ".exe" file for updating Bios.

Please Help me,
I can solve this problem, OR it is the hardware failure and I have to turn back and take a new one?

Thank you in advance for your attention.

Hi, I've recently bought brand new Lenovo Y530 with 512gb SSD and 512gb M2.SSD disks without the Operating system.I've prepared the USB with a windows image using Windows usb tool, disabled the fast boot, disabled secure boot, boot is set to the UEFI, I can see my USB in the EFI section of the BIOS and then once I start the laptop it goes directly to the BSOD (image included) I never get the chance to get into windows installation. Once again, the system is clean, there was no OS installed on it before. If I remove the USB and start the laptop then It waits on the black screen. Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong? I've also tried with different USB and it's the same result. Thanks!

Hi, I have a Lenovo Y530 running Vista 64 and on battery power it goes into screen saver every 3 min. I have changed the screen saver settings. I have gone into the power settings and changed the time the display turns off. Checked all the power settings. Can not figure out why the screen goes black after 3 min. Touching the mouse it wakes up right away. Is there a problem with this computer or is there some setting I am missing? Jeff

Hello everyone.I was wanting to play some game on my Lenovo when the screen froze. I manually shutdown my computer and ride to turn it back on. I got stuck on the automatic repair failed error message. So I searched for a lot of solutions which didn?t work so I decided to réinitialise windows because it has only been two weeks since I got it so it?s not a big deal. When it was done that?s when the problem started. When I press the power button, it displays the legion logo and i hear the fans and the keyboard LED?s light up but then it shutsdown and does the same loop ove and over again.

Last week i scanned my new lenovo y530 using lenovo vantage due to a slow start up and during the HDD scan  the SMART short self test wont complete and gets stuck at 10% even after leaving it overnight , how to fix this , should i be worried about it?

A:CANT COMPLETE HARDWARE SCAN ON MY LENOVO Y530

I don't think you should be worried that much about it. If your device is slowly booting try turning off some startup apps and clean up your disk since the more you store on it the more time is required for it to boot from the HDD. You can also test with Windows's Error checking on the drive if there are file system errors. And you can run Disk Defragment to speed up your device a bit. Check to see if you can hear any unusual clicking noises coming from the drive. Hope this helpsCheers

So I have a Lenovi Legion Y530, I bought this very recently. Specs: i7 8750H, Gtx 1050Ti, 16 Gigs of Ram, 128Gb SSD, 1Tb HD. So I decided to overclock my gpu (with Msi Afterburner) I increased the GPU clock by 350mhz, and the memory clock by 150mhz. I also undervolted the cpu by -0.140 volts. (I'm pretty sure this is the gpu's problem). I tried running Time Spy in 3DMark. This worked before I overclocked. While the benchmark was loading, it froze on the loading screen. Everything else worked, but I couldn't exit. It was just stuck on the screen. I couldnt enter task manager, or go to the desktop. My only option was to force shutdown. When I turned it on the Legion logo popped up and had the loading icon. Then it disappeared and nothing's loads after it, it stays as a black screen. Keep in mind that I don't have the tools to access the internals of the laptop. So I need a way to fix it someway else. Thanks in advance.

Windows 7 has installed a generic driver for the card. You need to go the cards manufacturers site and download the correct driver for windows 7. Then unistall the card in Device Manager and then install the new driver.

Hello, I have had the following happen to 2 different Lenovo Legion Y530 laptops in the last week.For the first laptop it was accidentally allowed to run down to zero.For the second laptop it was intentially run down to zero to try to recreate this problem.  Unfortunately it succeeded.Here are the steps:Laptop runs down to zero and shuts off.  When plugged in, on power on, states laptop was not powered down normally and then brings up Recovery screen (blue screen).  Claims missing or errors in iaStorAC.sys.  The first laptop problem claimed HAL.dll was missing or corrupt.From the blue screen, most options lead back to this recovery screen.  Only the BIOS options goes elsewhere. From the novo button, I've tried:- System Recovery - appears to work but returns to Recovery screen.- Restore from Restore point (after booting from USB) - claims it works (after some hd repair) and then returns to Recovery screen.- From command line, repairing the boot config data (ran into permission errors on some commands) - no success. I called Lenovo support and after verifying that the harddrive was still recognized by the bios, had me attempt System Recovery from the novo menu.  When that failed, claimed it was a hardware issue and needed to be sent in for repair.  Seems unlikely it would be the same hardware problem on 2 separate laptops.  It seems related to the power down corrupting the boot files. From the recent reviews at Bestbuy...

I've had my laptop for less than 2 months, but recently I got stuck in an auto-repair loop (possibly a virus), so I took my laptop to my university's tech center. Once there they wiped my laptop clean and installed a fresh install of Windows 10. A couple of my drivers got deleted like my mouse and wifi drivers, but they re-installed them there as well. Everything was fine just a little slow, I re-installed all my apps/games back. I never really checked for Windows 10 updates until a couple days ago because I randomly got this error when trying to play my games. It would say something like this: "ERROR: your video card does not support alpha blending with floating point render targets (D3DFMT_A16B16G16R16F)". I have a GTX 1050 ti, so I was really confused. I looked up how to fix it on other forums and even Reddit. Apparently, this happens when your laptop tries using the GPU built into the motherboard instead of the actual graphics card. Many suggested uninstalling the current GPU drivers and re-installing them. So that's exactly what I tried, but now whenever I try to express install the newest driver on Geforce Experience; it says "The Standard NVIDIA graphics driver is not compatible with this version of Windows. Please update your driver using...(website)". The website it gives is not even available, so I look up and manually try to download/install the driver myself, but it gives me the same message it did on Geforce Experience.

Hello, I am trying to create a FreeDOS USB stick that will boot my 2014 X1 Carbon.  I am trying to boot it from the USB stick so that I can run the Thinkpad Drive Erase Utility before selling my machine for parts (the keyboard is loosing its mind and randomly sending keystrokes that make it mostly unusable). I have tried doing the following: 1) Used UNetbootin to download FreeDOS (version 1.0) and apply it to the USB stick.  But weirdly enough, the files it downloads don't at all look like a FreeDOS install.  It has files named things like: ldlinux.c32ldlinux.syslibcom32.c32syslinux.cfg etc. In any case, the USB stick will not boot the machine. I actively choose the USB as a boot device, but it just keeps returning immediately to the same screen asking me which device to boot from. 2) Downloaded FreeDOS directly from the FreeDOS website and installed that onto a FAT32 formatted USB stick (I have tried the same stick as before as well as a new one). This looks more like an actual FreeDOS install as far as I can tell.  It has files named like: AUTOEXEC.BATCOMMAND.COMFD12LITE.ZipFDCONFIG.SYSKERNEL.SYSSETUP.BAT and a folder named: FDSETUP  But again, it won't actually boot from this USB stick. Same as above.  I select the USB stick from the boot menu (the one you get if you choose F12 on startup), but all it does is have the screen go blank for a split second and then it returns to the boot menu....

What do you mean by new? New directly from Gateway which would have a preinstalled OS which would be Windows. Or did you buy it from a friend or pc shop 2nd hand?

You might have to purchase and install WIndows. If Windows is installed on the laptop you might have to access a boot menu to select it. Try pressing F8 during reboot and the Gateway logo.
