Q: Ideapad 320 15IKB

Hi, i just bought a first Lenovo laptop, with preinstalled Windows 10 Home. My friend tried to install Windows 10 Pro (clean install) and accidentally wiped out all the data in SSD, including all the partitions and recovery data. Now i want to factory reset my laptop, just like it was when i bought it. Is that possible anymore? I downloaded Lenovo USB Recovery Tool, can i download original Windows 10 Home with that? And does it include all the preinstalled drivers too? Thank you,Janek

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Good afternoon,I am having issues with the touchpad driver. I really despise two point scrolling and would like one, but the current version of the ELAN software does that is available for this laptop does have the ability for single point scrolling. Is there some other software i can use to enable this or am i pretty much SOL until an update hits that brings it to the current version? I have tried accessing the Microsoft Update Catalog for the driver, but it just crashes after an attempt to move the mouse so i had to roll it back.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,Jake

Hi, I recently bought an ideapad 310 and I've been trying to connect it to my TV using the VGA connection without success. As soon as I plug the cable in to the PC port the screen freezes and showing only the desktop. Any open window cannot be accessed and even though I can bring up the start menu I cannot launch any program and see it (the program runs but I cannot see it). The HDMI connection works well. Has anybody had the same problem? Can it be a display setting set wrong? Please advise.Many thanks in advance.

Hi, Driven by the good performance of some Lenovo Thinkpads from friends, I just bought an Ideapad 510-15IKB and everything is just great, except for the fun noise! It is completely insane, I can hear all the time, even after booting without anything running. After searching a lot on the web it seems to me that this is quite usual on this Lenovo machines and the company is not answering at all to the customers request. Is it that hard to release a bios update that changes the behavior of the fan or does it mean that this design has a cooling problems and it needs to have the fan constantly running?I know that it is not fair to argue that the temperature of the cpu is around 35C and the fan is running, because if the fan was not running the temperature would be higher for sure, but would it be higher enough to justify that the fan is always running at a earable pace? I guess that we, the customers, just want an answer from Lenovo, either saying that this is like it is and we need to live with that or, the preferable one, a BIOS update... In my case, I will wait a couple more days to see if any solution comes up and if not, I will be returning the laptop and buy something that is not Lenovo. ThanksPedro

I ordered this laptop a few months ago from Amazon and from the start it had some malfunctions like mouse glitches and speaker glitches while playing sound. I said ok I can live with that. Then progressively it started to get slower, then a few days ago the screen would suddenly turn black, so I would have to force shut down. And restarting has a 30% chance of success, if it doesn't freeze mid start-up. McAfee is newly installed and always scanning for viruses, but I can't do a full scan now without the laptop freezing and quiting. I don't know if it's a problem from windows 10 or the laptop. Maybe both. Can someone please help and advise what to do. Thank you.

Just got my brand new Ideapad 520-15IKB (type BF81), and it is without optical drive.Will adding a DVD RW void my warranty?I want to get an original one with the color of my notebook, Bronze Metal. 

A:Does IdeaPad 520-15IKB 81BF004NRI

Hi stefboy01,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
In general sense, upgrades such as adding optical drive should not void the hardware warranty as long as nothing gets damaged during and after the process taken. This however may be different from each region as Optical drives are non CRU parts (non customer replaceable parts as it would need special tools to perform).
 
Detailed discussion about warranty and upgrades here.
 
Best action plan is to just inform technical support of your planed upgrade. It would also help them document the upgrades since those we add is not part of the original in-warranty parts to avoid confusion in future repairs.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Hi guys,I bought a new 510-15IKB (i5-7200U type). It came with DOS, I installed win10 and configured everything, installed drivers etc. My problem is the fan, it keeps working constantly in idle, even on battery, on battery saver mode, so it just totally neglects the energy management settings (passive cooling, etc.) and CPU temps (34 Celsius and the fan keeps working).The fan is working in its lowest state (maybe, never heard it be quieter), so the problem is not a loud fan, rather that the fan never turns off during idle. I'm an IT guy, I know how to make things work etc, but this just can't be solved by me.What I tried:- Restart etc.- Reinstall drivers from support page downloads- Install newest drivers from parts manufacturers (intel etc.)- Set different energy management settings- Updated UEFI to newest version (3JCN23WW)- updated win10 totally- ran malwarebytes anti-malware and kaspersky internet security 2017, both finished without finding anything- restarted with discrete graphics turned off in uefi- restarted with fast boot turned off in uefi- even tried it using an Ubuntu live session and it is the same And there is a strange buzzing sound on movement if it is perpendicular to the surface of the fan, it's really quiet, but happens on smaller movements too, and it even happened once while the laptop was completely still on the table. This part of my problem might be totally normal, so my bigger problem is with it not turning off.It seems like a UEFI problem... Read more

A:Ideapad 510-15IKB fan never idling

Tried reflashing the same BIOS but it did not help anything (as I tought it wouldn't).Moreover, the fan made the buzzing sound again, I could make it go away by tilting the whole laptop 90 degrees back to vertical position and then to horizontal.

Hello, I have a problem with my HDD.I recently installed a SSD hard drive in the old HDD slot, and the old HDD in the DVD slot with a caddy.The system is booting from the SSD, no problem there.The problem starts when i try to access the HDD from Windows Explorer for example; it works for a minute let's say, and after thet i get the "not responding" issue. It is like the system shuts down the power for the HDD. If i close Windows Explorer from Task Manager, the whole system crashes and i have to restart the laptop.Do you have any idea how to fix this?? Do i have to set up the HDD in a different way?? Both SSD and HDD are set as "Primary". Please help!  Thank you.

Some eight months ago I bought an Ideapad 320 15IKB for study, mostly, but since two weeks ago I cannot initialize it anymore. First it froze, and then it wouldn't restart.After that, I tried to reset it, first trying to keep my files and then not even bothering about that, but both times the system interupted that procedure, having to abort. Now, I don't know what to do since I need this computer for study as soon as possible, although at this point I have already given up on my data.

A:Ideapad 320 15IKB won't initialize, nor reset.

If you have access to another Windows PC, I would start by making a Lenovo Bootable Diagnostics CD and then using it to test the hardware in your laptop. Lenovo Bootable Diagnosticshttps://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/lenovodiagnosticsolutions/tools/bootablediags I am going guess that there might be issues with the HDD on your system, but if that turns out to be the case, don't give up on your files quite yet, because while often you may not be able to boot from the bad drive, your files can be recovered if the HDD is removed and hooked up to another system using a USB drive enclosure (around $10.00 USD). It sounds like your system should still be under warranty, so after backing up your data, one option would be to open a Lenovo Warranty ticket and have the drive replaced.     If time is a factor more than cost, you can create Windows 10 Installation Media free from Microsoft, use it to boot your laptop, and then try to reset windows, or use the Advanced tools to check the HDD for errors etc.    If the drive is bad, you could replace the HDD with a new one, and then use the Windows Installation Media to install a fresh fresh copy of Windows too.  Good Luck,
