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.)

Touchpad on my Ideapad 100s keeps shutting off.  It will work when the computer turns on but then after a while, it stops working.  Pressing F6 works sometimes but not all of the time. It looks like the driver that is loaded is from January 2016, but when I tried to upgrade to the newer driver, it seemed to not be working and was causing both the touchpad and keyboard to stop working.  Got it working again by deleting the driver.  My wife uses this computer for school and it's not convenient to plug in an external mouse.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

First off, I'm going to say this laptop was a Christmas gift from a friend. I do not have ANY computers in this house aside from this one. I use this laptop for blogging and listening to music as well as job hunting, however, it will not register the keyboard or touchpad at all. I called Customer Support and the best answer they could give me was to bring it back to the store I got it from--this was an incompetent answer to the problem. I have tried touching and holding the power button for 15 seconds and when it restarts, the problem is not fixed. None of the keys are working. Period. I have a mouse for a gaming computer, however, I do not have a keyboard to plug in to use. If I could get a response to this, that would be GREAT!!! I cannot log in or do anything with my lap top right now and am currently stuck doing things from my cell phone.

I just got an IdeaPad 100S 11IBY and the touchpad won't let me scroll down in web pages or documents. If I drag two fingers down or up to scroll like I can on other laptops, nothing happens. Is there a way to turn scrolling on or does the laptop not support it?










Solved!

A:IdeaPad 100S 11IBY touchpad scrolling?

there is no setting to enable. as of right now, there is no way to get 2 finger scroll. I've been checking frequently to see if there are updated drivers for the trackpad but it's not even certain that this touchpad supports multitouch anyway. It's very disappointing that a new laptop does not have this basic feature, too difficult to use unless you have a mouse. Unfortunately I cannot  return mine so I'm stuck fiddling with scroll bars and arrow keys.

Does the mouse have up/down page scrolling? I bought the laptop for my son but i cannot get the page to scroll up or down regardless whether i use 1/2 fingers?? If it just doesn't have scrolling can someone let me know please.Thanks

A:IdeaPad 100S 11IBY touchpad scrolling?

Even though it doesn't have two -finger scrolling, the 11by Lenovo has page up / page down controls and the up / down arrow keys on the lower right of the keyboard which will scroll the page if you are not inside a typing box. If inside a typing box the up /down arrows scroll within the text. Move the cursor outside the box then click to get the extra features on those keys

Hello My Ideapad 100S has in the last couple of days developed a curious problem. If I try to drag something using the touchpad, after holding down the left button, when I move my finger across the pad the machine behaves as if its receiving multiple double-taps rather than mouse-moves. So, for instance, if you do this on a map it does lots of zoom-ins. Any ideas, anyone?

Hello,after last Windows update my touchpad gets disabled when laptop is on battery, when it's plugged in and charging everything works well. I can enable touchpad with shortcut on F6 key, but after few seconds of not using the touchpad, it disables by itself. I also noticed that I can enable touchpad by clicking the physical left or right click below it, but not by tapping the touchpad. Also, I think it has something to do with Power Management, but when I go to Manage->Device Manager->Mice and pointing devices->HID-compliant mouse and go to Properties, I don't have the Power Management tab there. Drivers are up to date, and there are no mouse drivers on Lenovo support page. I ran out off ideas, any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I have weird issues after the last fall creators update of Windows 10 on my relatively new ideapad 100s 11iby.On battery mode mouse and touchpad stop working after 2 unused seconds. To reactivate I only need to hit a key on the keyboard or a mouse/touchpad button. With this issue, the notebook is nearly unusable... I solved half of the problem with the informations in this link:https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/touchpad-disables-when-on-batt... The Touchpad acts totally normal again, but the Mouse-problem still exists. Is this a known problem or does a solution (workaround) exist? Best regardsB.

Well I sure can't find where to post this.  It's not a question it's a solution to a problem that was driving me nuts and I wanted other people to know this. If your touchpad left button stops working and not for the usual reasons - this is what will make it work again.1.  Unplug power cord if plugged in 2.  Remove battery3.  Hold down start button for about 20 seconds4.  Put in battery5.  Reboot I would actually like the whole world to know this as I have googled countless times and never found a solution that works.  I have the Acer Aspire One - not one of the locations listed either. Hope this helps someone!  DonnaB

Hi
 
I got a 2nd hand Lenovo Ideapad 100S. It came with Win10 installed but had someone elses profile and data. 
(I am not sure if it originally had Win8.1 when it was shipped, there is no rollback option anymore)
 
My preference is to wipe the current installation completely by downloading Win10 and installing a clean copy off USB. 
 
I also usually prefer to delete all partitions, including recovery because future reinstallations can be done from scratch via USB. (I don't need the option of reinstalling from recovery partitions , the extra space is more important)
 
I see a warning in the user guide however .....
"Do not delete or modify the Recovery Partition on a WIMBoot-enabled computer. If the Recovery Partition is deleted or modified, you may not be able to restore Windows to the factory status. For computer models on which WIMBoot is enabled, deleting the Recovery Partition may cause Windows to fail to start. How can I determine whether the Windows running on my computer is WIMBoot enabled? WIMBoot technology is normally enabled on copies of Windows 10 Update running on SSD (or eMMC) -only computer models."
 
What is the best way to do this?

Install a clean copy and remove the partition by booting off a USB, or should I not do this?
Via Settings: settings > Recovery > Reset this PC > Remove everything, or
settings > Recovery > advanced startup > Reinstall from USB

A:Ideapad 100s - Win10 clean installation on ideapad...

 Hi larrens , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It's a good thing you posted first before proceeding with any clean installation. 
Not sure what the Machine Number is to verify the details and specifications of your system.
 
But if you have a pc with a Windows Image Boot (or WIMBoot) you may not want to choose a clean installation. 
This new deployment of installation is compressing part of a big OS file so that you can have an operating system that can only take small spaces intended for small storages (SSD).
 
Best option to wipe out previous owners profile is a have a fresh out of the box image is using the Puch button Factory reset (Novo key similar to Item 7 page 1). Simply shutdown the system and use the button to turn on, System Recovery option would provide One key recovery from initial backup to do it. 
 
WIM boot are usually created thru OEM depot authorized by Microsoft . DIY for WIMboot maybe a bit complicated.
Click on underlined links for further review. 
 
Hope this answered your query.
Update us.

I can't use my touchpad. My arrow/cursor is frozen in the middle of the screen.

1) I can still use external mouse

2) I saw in similar post somebody suggested using memory tool scan from microsoft. I did find that but when I clicked on it the owner was not microsoft but some other name. I am tired of downloding stuff on my computer and find out later that they are spyware etc..

3) I purchased Norton 360 which does not help

4) I ran system restore, did not help. First when I ran system restore it gave me error message "unspecified error during system restore" I ran it in safemode and now I could restore. Then I had to do the updates again. Rebooted toshiba laptop agai and the cursor still frozen.

Could you please help? What help could I use from Microsoft Help ? Most diagnostic stuff I downloaded so far wants me to buy their product? What shall I do?

A:frozen arrow on touchpad

Norton and vista usually dont go well together. I would use Avast or AVG antivirus, they are free.

Have you tried finding drivers for the touchpad? You could try to install new drivers or just reinstall current ones. Also have you tried turning the touchpad off and then on again? Is the touchpad on?

Just a thought

Unlike other laptops I've had which were able to run without the battery even in the laptop, i.e. Only plugged in, my laptop requires some level of charging before even turning on when plugged in.  is this normal or is there a setting to allow the device to turn on when plugged in. Quite a pain having to wait for it to re charge, isn't that the point of corded use? Also it seems to die pretty quickly and even when put to sleep when closed fizzles out quickly.

I have a 100s 11.6 and, of course, the memory is full.  Almost instantly.  I bought a 64gb card for it but when I go into disk management and try to delete the D partition, all 3 choices are greyed out.  Do the same with C partition and the only choice is Shrink Volume.  Is there a work-around ?? Also, reading online, all I've read says the memory is soldered in on my model.  When I pulled the back off it, I see that the boards are plugged in.  I'd be real pleased if I could buy a larger capacity board to install.  Is that possible ??  Barring any of the above, I can manually copy and paste individual files from C drive to D drive to make a bit more room on C, but not sure which ones are safe to do so or how to go about it without messing up my OS.  Yah, I'm a newbie at this stuff and need hand-hold assistance. Thanks in advance.

I loved the size and price point of the Lenovo Ideapad 100S. However, of course because it only came with 30GB of hard drive space, Windows 10 basically maxed it out immediately. So, tonight I just tried to do something about it. I purchased a Samsung M.2 SSD 256 GB. I have a screenshot and I really think I installed it right. I just can't figure out how to get the bios to recognize it. Disk management doesn't show it at all. I rebooted into bios and reset defaults and restarted to no avail. What did I do wrong here? Is it just that the Ideapad can't recognize this particular M.2 SSD? Please see the screenshot I have attached. Any suggestions on how to get the bios to recognize this?

I have been trying to find out how to boot my Ideapad 100S from usb but apparently this is not possible. I have made an image of my partition but if I need it I have no way of getting it back as I cannot boot outside of windows. What do I do if my os fails completely? I cannot believe that there is no way to boot from usb so if anybody knows how to do this I would appreciate any advice.

A:No boot options for Ideapad 100S?

Hello and welcome,
 
Is this an 11IBY?  The 11IBY requires  UEFI 32-bit boot media.  Legacy and 64-bit media won't work.
 
How did you create your image, and how are you trying to boot it?  Did you use the "create recovery drive" option?  I'd expect that to make bootable media.  (If that option exists - I don't have personal experience with that machine).
