Q: How to hard reset Lenovo Ideapad 100 15IBY

My keyboard and trackpad don't work for some reason. I read on the internet that I have to do a hard reset (taking out the battery and disconnecting the AC cable, than holding the power button for 30 seconds) to make it work again. So my question is how to perform a hard reset if the battery is INBUILT. I looked into the user manual of the laptop but I couldn't find anything. My laptop works with a USB mouse and keyboard, and the laptop keyboard works in BIOS. I also tried to find an option to disable the battery in BIOS but couldn't find anything.Thanks for your help!

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.)

I knew that this laptop had one tiny speaker but I didn't really mind because I use extra speakers. To my surprise, even if you connect a stereo pair of speakers the sound that you get is mono. I tried different kinds, of jacks, headphones and what so, but no stereo sound. It seems that the combo jack provides mono sound. The sound card is a realteck HD audio ALC233. Have all updates and laptop had windows 10 Home preinstalled You can check for your self doing the "left an right test" through control panel.  I also went back to the store and checked for my self on other demo laptops. Same issues there too. Went to other stores  same issues on all ideapads 100 seiries.I contacted Lenovo in Greece. They advised that the sound out the combo jack must be stereo in all occasions  and to send them the laptop to check it.But what are they going to check? All ideapads 100 series laptops in the market, at least the ones I tested provide mono sound out of the combo jack.Laptop specifications mention availability of a mono speaker and nothing about the combo jack. i will apreciate an official answer on this matter which will be beneficial to lenovo customers.

Hello guys. So I wanted to burn some files on a disc but i encountered an error about the disc. so i tried another disc but then i realised the disc driver is missing from "this PC". i went to the device manager and found it while it was Hidden. in the device status box it stated :"Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer."so i asked some friends and searched through net and some local websites. and then i thought maybe it is a good idea to uninstall the driver so that it it will be reinstalled automatically and the problem will be solved.(Read that solution from the net) so i did it but it is not back.now i really need your help to fix this problem.thank you

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
There is no master password, back door or CMOS clearing procedure that will remove your forgotten password.  This is due to the ease in which laptops are stolen.   To resolve the issue you have basically two options.  The first is for the Uncle to try and remember the password he used.  Please keep in mind that passwords are case sensitive and he may have use upper and lower case characters.  The second option is to replace the motherboard.

I just got a new Ideapad 100 with Windows 10 and noticed the FN key doesn't appear to be working at all. The FN-Delete key is supposed to activate the number lock on the 10 key keypad, but the numberlock will not engage. Additionally it doesn't seem to activate any of the other F# functions either. I updated to the most current BIOS and downloaded and installed a driver for hotkeys but still no go.  I really would like to be able to use the 10 key pad for numberical entry.Any help would be appreciated.Thanks

A:Ideapad 700 - hard reset

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
In order to do a thorough hard reset you would have to unplug the adapter, remove the main battery and then remove the motherboard battery.  Both battery removals would require dis-assembling the laptop.  The other problem is that some models have the motherboard battery soldered directly to the board. 
 
For more information on the dis-assembly of your laptop visit the Lenovo Download Library at the link below for your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual.........
 
https://support.lenovo.com/us/en
 
Some issues can be resolved by doing a soft reset or static discharge.  This can be done by the following.....
 
1. Shut down Windows and unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 3. Plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.

Recently bought Ideapad 100-15IBY (Quadcore 1.7GHz, 4GB RAM). The seller installed Windows7 (64 bit) with drivers. However with 64bit OS the system operation is slow, instable and out of sync. I tried Windows 7 (32 bit) and found the operation to be smooth. But drivers for Win7 32 bit is not available in Lenovo website. How to get the drivers I need? I don't think 64 bit drivers would install on 32 bit OS. And I can't tolerate the performance with 64 bit OS. Only option is use of 32 bit Windows 7. Now, how do I get drivers?

Team, I'm the happy owner of an Ideapad 100-15IBY that perfectly does the job. Unfortunately, Windows 10 decided to download tons of upgrades/updates that completely put my PC on the knees. I had a very bad reaction: while I had the Lenovo logo on the screen and it's turning wheel with the "upgrading XX%..." message (so during BIOS load, it seems) and I switched the PC off. Since then, no boot, no access even to BIOS and the screen stays black. Even the Lenovo logo doesn't appear anymore. I dismounted the laptop, removed the battery, removed the CMOS battery and reformatted the hard drive (Seagate 500GB) completely: nothing changed. I suspect that there is no electronic issue, only the BIOS is corrupted or vanished. I read the hardware manual but didn't find a mean to reinitialize the BIOS (any jumper on the motherboard? I didn't dismounted it yet). Where could I find a working BIOS to reflash it? What is the sequence to force a BIOS reflash? Thanks in advance for your help.

My lappy was fine for the first 3 months then I started getting thin muli-coloured lines accross the screen, a bit like Interference. This developed over the last month and when the screen started flickering and the backlight was go-ing on and off, I dicided to seek help from the online support team. I might as well have asked my next door neighbours Parrot. Because this fault started when the machine was 3 months old and was steadily getting worse. There is no way that I was believing that this was software related. Even when I told the Lenovo clown that it also went off when I tapped the left hand side of the case he still wanted to try and diagnose it remotely for OS / Driver issues. Anyway, I am posting here to help anyone else out with the same problem. I fixed it by: Removing the 3 screws on the centre of the base (they have a small keyboard image next to them).Using a very thin bladed knife, lift the top of the keyboard away from the case. After lifting a little with the knife you can get your fingers under it. (It makes a horrible cracking noise as you seperate it. But don't worry, be brave. As long as you have removed those 3 screws, it will come away). Carefully lift the keyboard up and you will see the ribbon cable conector. It has a hinged flap that holds the cable in place. Lift this up and remove the cable and keyboard. Just above the keyboard cable connector is a small rectangled hole. If you look in there you will see another plug. It conne... Read more

After installing Ubuntu on my ideapad 100-15IBY type 80MJ, my BIOS appears to be broken. I was not happy with the Ubuntu distro and I wanted to install something else, but I was not able to boot from either USB or CD-ROM after this install. In fact, any changes made in the BIOS is not saved (I tried resetting virtually everything). At first I thought this must be due to a problem with the EFI partition or bootloader, so I disconnected the SSD drive but then BIOS could not find any bootable media. I also tried replacing the CMOS battery (atleast I assume this is the CMOS battery, a CS2032 battery on the motherboard), still no improvement.  What can I do to reclaim my computer? Would it be possible to remove the harddrive, put it in another computer and install windows and so update the bios from lenovos winflash bios updater? Or is there an easier option? I suppose lenovos winflash thing will not be working under WINE? Not being able to boot from USB is really a big issue for me...
