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.)

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.
 
Anybody have any suggestions on what the probl... Read more

Are you able to get into the advanced boot menu by tapping F8? It might not be listed on the startup screen but it should still be there.
 
If not you can burn a repair disc from any PC with Windows 7. Theres steps from Microsoft Here.

Does anyone know the functions of the Lenovo Utility app? I am aware that it flashes up with an on screen symbol when the caps lock or num lock is pressed but what else can it do? I only ask as I want to disable it in order to stop the on screen notification that caps lock is on from appearing everytime I press the key. However I read somewhere that the app also handles the battery management and don't want to disable it if it will harm my pc. When I go into details in task manager it just appears as Lenovo Utility. So can I safley diable it? or will it cause an issue? Thanks

New Yoga 700-141SK: Ran the Lenovo Support Center Hardware Scan and the Video Card Mathematical Operations Test has failed rendering the Report: WVC007002-UL7BPL. Is there a tried and proven solution out there? I have had a look at the solutions on the forum and am not satisfied that the solutions offered prove that the problem has been resolved. It is reasonable to expect Lenovo to make available a solution as a matter of course instead of end-users of "afflicted" Lenovo devices having to request/search for a solution(s).

A:Lenovo ideapad 510 help

You didn't need to set the boot mode to Legacy Support, you should install it without legacy support, but install on the UEFI, so next time turn the legacy support OFF, and install the Windows on the UEFI. If you turn legacy off, it automatically should be UEFI

Hello, I have the latest windows 10 updates installed. but one day my laptop started to lag. because I usually watch movie and listen to music with my laptop, it ruins my experience of watching and listening. I thought it was because of heavy applications so I used the fresh start tool. and it removed most of my applications and the windows worked properly without any lags until I decided to restart it and again the lags came back. now that I don't have any applications or games that can possibly fill the memory or the CPU, I don't know where the lag comes from. so i'm open to suggestions.thank you

Hello,since I bought my new laptop back in Dec 2016 and aside from the fact that I had to struggle a bit with the delivery process that ended up to be a non-issue, I was happy with this machine... Til about three weeks ago. Unfortunately, the return period has expired and since the whole story is not relevant here (other than just venting my frustration) I will just try to turn this into a positive experience by asking and perhaps offering advise out there.My ask is: Does any one out there know if there is a way for me to have similar functionality that an Integrated Microphone Array via an outside device or anything on this machine? The Ideapad 310 unfortunately does not come with this device which is embeded in the motherboard. Since I had bought HP laptops in the past which bring it as part of the standard build, I didn't even think (nor did I know) of finding out if this machine had this component. But it doesn't come with it. Yes I know, my bad, I should've sticked to HP, but anyway, I have this piece of expensive hardware (at least for me) and I can't use it for what I need because it does not come with that feature. Please, I've done quite a lot already, so don't offer anything else than what I am asking, please, if you don't know what an IMA does then it is basically an internal microphone that you can use as opposed to a headset. I need that to work that way. Period. So, I don't know, Lenovo tech support had already given their veredict but perhaps some savvy pe... Read more

The short answer is "yes".

Check out Jesse Andersen's site on the S10-3t. He's pretty much the expert on that machine.

The relevant section for you is Lenovo S10-3T: Windows 7 Starter vs Home Basic vs Home Premium vs Professional vs Enterprise vs Ultimate

Hi,I am almost 90% interesed to buy a new Lenovo ideapad S210 20256, that comes with an Intel Celeron 1037U 1,8GHz, 2GB of RAM, 500GB HDD, 11inch screen. Mfg Date: 2014/03/24.I found an online manual (PDF), and based on that I assume I can upgrade the RAM to 8GB at MAX. Now my actual main concern is the GPU. I heard that the laptop comes with an Intel HD Graphics but found here at notebookcheck.net that the intel HD Graphics 2500 is also called Intel HD Graphics. Now I am a bit confused.At the Intel website it is said to be the Intel HD Graphics.So I would like if someone can confirm to me what is the GPU used? I appreciate any help.










Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Lenovo Ideapad S210 GPU?

The Intel HD Graphics is built in to the processor, so depending on the processor, it could be called Intel HD Graphics, or Intel HD Graphics 4000 grapdepending on which CPU your system comes with.     The Lower grade Celeron CPU having a lower grade Intel HD Graphics card and the I3 a bit better Intel HD Graphics 4000 as shown in the spec sheets. The Celeron equipped S210 with the Intel HD Graphics will perform a bit slower than the Core i3 equipped S210 model with the Intel HD Graphics 4000, but both should work well for casual computing and Internet browsing.     Neither 2-core CPUs or graphics card is great for power hungry video games, so if you are a gamer I would look for a different system altogether with a quad core CPU etc.    Lenovo S210 Touch Laptophttp://shop.lenovo.com/ae/en/laptops/lenovo/s-series/s210-touch/#tab-tech_specs Lenovo S210 Touch CPU/graphics specificatoins Intel Celeron Processor 1037U (2M Cache, 1.80 GHz)http://ark.intel.com/products/71995/Intel-Celeron-Processor-1037U-2M-Cache-1_80-GHz Intel Core? i3-3227U Processor (3M Cache, 1.90 GHz)http://ark.intel.com/products/72057/Intel-Core-i3-3227U-Processor-3M-Cache-1_90-GHz  Hope that helps
