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?ve recently bought a new Lenovo Yoga Laptop 300S-11IBR, N3710, 4Gb RAM 64Gb SSD , 1G LAN.The problem is when Lenovo turning back ON (from reboot or power off), it?s (kind of) HANGs the XMOS USB device (XMOS not responding anymore), and the Audio device needs to be restarted (to be recognized by any PC).After some investigation, I?ve found out that after turning off the laptop, USB device (inside the Lenovo) switches OFF (Red LED in the XMOS device), but after a few seconds switches back ON (Green LED in the XMOS device).The simple solution is to disconnect the USB cable before pressing the power (ON) button, and then connecting it back (until the next power on). Any ideas ?

I've setup an offsite office in Dublin at a hotel. We use a VPN to get onto our network in Canada. When at home the VPN responds like a dream but here (over ADSL) its so slow the connection constantly drops and my users (now breathing down my neck) are unable to use the VPN in any practical way.

Can anyone suggest why the speed difference (does geographical distance really make such a difference?) and what I can try to boost it?

I've used "route add" to map static connections once connected to the VPN but it didn't seem to help much.

Hurry please before I sucuumb to a cardiac arrest....
 

A:Slow VPN speeds from Ireland to Canada

It's not geographical distance that is the problem it's the route the data has to take to reach it's final destination that is causing the slowdown. Not all services or networks that your VPN tunnel has to go through will support IPsec and there may also be some issues with the hotels network. Ask their IS person, they may have more insight into your problem.

Hi everyone,
I've searched through the forums for an answer to this one but can't seem to sort it out by myself, so any help at all would be greatly appreciated! Basically this white screen (sometimes with blue lines running down sometimes without) has been appearing on startup. At first it just appeared in place of the windows logo before log in, but now it's appearing earlier on and the only way to bypass it is to hit the power button and hope it loads up properly. I've tried disabling/uninstalling the display driver and this has either (a) caused the laptop to crash to the white screen
or (b) nothing, just back to white screen appearing at intervals.

I've run Avast and Spybot as well as RegistryFix but haven't got a clue what to do now!
Thanks for any help,
Nicola.

I plan to take my ACER A500 tablet to England and Ireland next week. I figure I may need a transformer, but I'm hoping I can get by with a simple adapter.

My home adapter/charger is a 12V, 1.5A ENERCELL which I bought from Radio Shack. For what it's worth, it has an input rating of 120V - 60H, 0.5A. I've been told that Ireland and the UK runs on 230v, 50 hz with 3-square-pin plugs.

Unless of course you know where to get a dirt cheap VOIP router, then I'd consider purchasing one of them.

Hello Dws520Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Was this the creators update?
If so, have a look on the following post, this should show if your device has been tested with the update yet:
https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht503655
 
From what I can see, your unit does not seems to have made the list, which leads me to believe that this will be the cause of the issue, I would recommend that you revert back to the previous version of Windows, and observe if the fault still occurs or not.
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

Hello All, I have an issue with my YOGA 700 laptop when logged in multiple accounts simultaneously. Whenever an account is left logged on and the user is switched as opposed to logging off, the cpu usage ramps up very high with several RUNDLL32 processes being the culprit. I have checked the RUNDLL32 processes with Process Explorer and the command line are as follows:C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\EnableAutoRotation.dll,RunCustomMonitor The directory is as follows: C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\ The only solution I have found is restarting the laptop. The problems comes back when again more than one user is logged in. Also, the rundll32 processes only run high cpu on one account at a time and there doesn't seem to be a preference for a specific account, all of them are plagued one at a time with the problem. Disabling the Yoga Mode Control service is a fix but that breaks the mode control which is essential in this laptop. I have tried installing all the available software on the Software page foor the YOGA 700. The rundll32 processes drain the battery very fast and I can't always log off other users when they have apps open!  I have posted a screenshot of process explorer showing 2 rundll32.exe processes using 25% cpu usage each. However, sometimes up to 4 rundll32.exe processes open up and they use combined 100% cpu usage, which makes the laptop run very hot and slow. In t... Read more

Hello, we got 2x Try-and-Buy Lenovo Yoga Tablet Laptops (an X1 Yoga and a Yoga 260) to evaluate their suitability for our company, since we intend to upgrade several of our employees laptops. However, ever since we got the devices we noticed on both of them frequent issues with the display and waking from sleep. Very often the laptops won't wake up properly with the screen staying black. In those cases the display-backlight seems to turn on, and I assume the system is running somehow in the background. Putting the computer to sleep again (e.g. by closing the lid) makes the computer wake up properly on the second attempt. Different error in the same category is when a video is running and the laptop is connected to AC - plugging out the AC cord made the screen go black while the media content's sound kept playing. All drivers were updated to the newest version via Lenovo System Update 5.07.0029. Any ideas? I also tried to open a support ticket, but Lenovo wanted to send and install a new display (!). Apparently, that seems like a driver/software issue?! Best regards

 New year, new Yogas. How does Lenovo?s Yoga 910 stack up against last year?s Yoga 900? Let?s find out.Hardware & Design The Yoga 910 looks very similar to the Yoga 900. They both have the same dimensions, which means that my sleeve for the Yoga 900 fits the Yoga 910 perfectly. The Yoga 910 is a bit heavier because of its all-metal unibody design. Last year?s Yoga 900 had a magnesium alloy casing, and a rubber-like material inside the chassis. With the Yoga 910, the entire chassis is metal. That gives it a more premium look and feel.  Even though the hinges on the Yoga 900 and Yoga 910 look nearly identical, the Yoga 910?s hinges are much more sturdier than the Yoga 900?s. This means that there?s less wobble when typing on the keyboard or touching the screen. Take a look at the difference:  There?s also the addition of a fingerprint reader, which is always great to have. It?s quick and responsive, and always recognized my fingerprint. PortsThis year?s Yoga 910 is focused mainly on USB C. There are two USB C ports, one USB A port, and a headphone/microphone jack combo. Last year?s Yoga 900 had two USB A ports, one USB C, SD card reader, and mini-HDMI. Because of the move to USB C, you?ll need a USB C to SD card reader or USB C to HDMI adapter if you?re looking for those functionalities.   DisplayThe Yoga 910?s display is larger, crispier, and brighter than last year?s display.

Nothing! The laptop was plugged in, so I know it hadn't run out of charge.After sheer panic, I contacted Lenovo, who told me that my warranty was out by a month, and that I could send it to them to diagnose, and they would tell me how much to fix, then it was up to me if they did or not.One I wouldn't be happy about not having my laptop for a couple of weeks minimum, but also it had all my private information on.I turned to good old google, and stumbled across this forum, and somebody with the same problem.Their solution was to unscrew the back case of the laptop (as mentioned above, my warranty was already out), remove the battery cable, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and reconnect the battery cable.I did this, and low and behold it worked. Fantastic!Only for it to happen twice more that week, and approx twice a week since. Then yesterday my brother contacts me saying his laptop has died, just won't turn on. His is the Yoga 2 Pro, I told him to bring it to mine, and I would try what I had to do to mine, to his, low and behold, the same solution worked. Seeing as I wasn't the first person to have this issue, and I'm guessing others have used the solution but not commented, this is obviously a fault with the Yoga range. I'm hoping that Lenovo can address this issue, as I fe...

 What are the differences, if any? Also, is there a Lenovo application that detects the installed drivers and prompts me to download newer versions if available? I can't seem to find anything similar to the Lenovo Updater that I had on my Y-50. Thanks

A:Difference between Yoga 900-13ISK and Yoga 900-13I...

Good day.
 
The major differences I see, looking at: http://psref.lenovo.com/Product/Lenovo_Yoga_900_13_inch are: the SK2 has Intel Iris HD 540 graphics, slightly different CPUs and PCIe SSDs.
 
Regarding driver updates, there's a feature in Lenovo Companion that assists with that.
 
Hope this helps clarify.
Regards.

Just curious, why is the new Thinkpad X1 Yoga I7, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, FHD about $1,000 more than the similarly equipped commercial Lenovo 910? 
 
Is it the ThinkPad brand name? The eraser nubbin? The 2 combined?
 
Just curious.
 
I've got a friend who needs a new laptop. She likes the touch/fold aspect of my 1st gen Thinkpad X1 Yoga. Do you all think she would be happy with the commercial Yoga 910? 
 
Any real reason to get the new plain FHD ThinkPad X1 Yoga instead of the similarly equipped commercial Yoga available at Best Buy besides spending an extra $1000 for the ThinkPad brand name?
 
I've owned 6 various ThinkPads since 2011 FWIW. I get it, they're cream of the crop. But I kinda got sticker shock when I just priced out a plain FHD (and we need nothing more) X1 Yoga. About  $2,800, wow!
 
Opinions and advice -- no spam please (thank you!) -- welcome.
 
Best to everyone...

A:Why is the ThinkPad X1 Yoga $1,000 more than a similar Yoga 910?

@Jelks, The biggest difference I see between the X1 Yoga (2nd) and the Yoga 910 is active pen support which seems to be missing from the 910. You could use a capacitive stylus, but expect fingertip resolution, not pinpoint, and no pressure-sensitivity. Fewer USB ports: no HDMI or MicroSD; no Thunderbolt. No TPM module, if you need to store encrypted creditials, e.g., for BitLocker. Not sure about battery life; they claim up to 9 hours of local video for the 910 vs. up to 15 of MobileMark for the X1. Not an apple-to-apple comparison. You're not going to get the (soon to be patched, at least for now) security hole that is Intel's vPro management tech. You may not get Windows 10 Pro, possibly just Home (but you could always give Microsoft the money to upgrade if you need BitLocker or Remote Access). You're not going to get all the "mil-spec" design and testing etc, but if it's a personal machine, you're probably going to avoid abusing it. As you suggest, the "wave" keyboard -- including the trackpoint "eraser nubbin" -- is definitely going to be more expensive on the ThinkPad than the plain Yoga keyboard. I used two generations of ThinkPads (T61p and W520), but about 3 years ago I switched to a Dell XPS 13. A year or so ago, I ordered a X1 Yoga 1st gen for my wife and she likes it very much, so I am pretty familiar with the design and capabilities. TLDR: I think most people would be happy with the 910 vs. X1 unless they want the active pen. Als...

The MTM 59418309 is for a Yoga 2 Pro.  In support, it and my serial number are showing Yoga 2 13. The drivers for the Yoga 2 13 (like BIOS) are returned...  Is this a problem?  Should I be using the Yoga 2 Pro BIOS or the Yoga 2 13 BIOS which is coming up. The sticker on the bottom says Yoga 2 Pro.Model 20266MTM 59418309
