Ideapad 100-15IBd | Windows 10 Update keeps failin...

Q: Ideapad 100-15IBd | Windows 10 Update keeps failin...

I bought this laptop refurbished back in June 2016. Since then, only a handful of updates were succesfully installed and after that every updates released by Windows always failed to install. There are currently 2 updates that is being shown on windows update :Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3205386)Feature update to Windows 10, version 1607These 2 updates have been repeatedly downloaded and try to install on every reboot with no success. What I have tried thus far is Running Windows Update Troubleshooter, which found and fixed several issues but doesn't fix the update failing to install.Any suggestion would be appreciated. It is pretty tiring getting your the notebook to reboot and try to install an update for 20 minutes and never got through. It goes up to 100%, and then starts showing "update couldn't be completed, undoing changes".

Preferred Solution: Ideapad 100-15IBd | Windows 10 Update keeps failin...

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.)

Hello, so I bought a lenovo ideapad 100-15IBD about a month ago, and it has been working fine until today when my screen wouldn't turn on. I turned my laptop on and the fan starter working but the screen was still black. Last night it worked fine and it was updating and I guess after updating it didn't work. So what should I do?  I already tried to restart it but it didn't help.

A:Where is my HDD Ideapad 100-15IBD

Hi lamradnane , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would you have the machine number (check on the machine number from the sticker or check it from here ,just keep your serial number confidential) .  It would appear similar to this 80QQ00CQUK  .
 
Physical devices detected by the machine should show in the BIOS . Turning off the system and using the Novo key to power on would give Novo Menu that offers BIOS set up as this can also be verified within windows under device manager if recognized.
 
The parts lookup page would also be able to verify the devices /parts using the machine number or SN. 
 
Update us as soon as convenient.

A:IdeaPad 100-15IBD Scan problem

Hi  ornella2904 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
What Windows version would you be using?
Assuring that you have already installed all remaining updates for Windows can assure that there are no current downloads or installations currently being processed in the background. 
 
Technical Support are the best guys to consult regarding WWF00F008-UL7VBE as it would need specific tool to decode it and if this would relate to current slow performance. 
 
You can try safe mode and clean boot to isolate if running processes are causing it. Start up options to disable non essential process can help as well disabling hybrid sleep on power setting.
Setting the power option not to save power on the properties of the wlan card under device manager can help maximize wireless usage.
 
Update us how it goes.

Hi,My Ideapad 100 has problems connecting to my Virgin Media Superhub 2.When I first bought the laptop and tried to connect to my router I was asked to provide a Username and Password.To resolve this issue I changed the security protocol on the router from WPA Auto to WPA2-AES.When I rebooted the laptop the WiFi SSID was available but when I clicked connect and entered the WiFi password the laptop returned the error "Cannot connect to this network".I ran the Windows Network Troubleshooter and it said that the security on the laptop does not match the security on the network.I've now found that every time I reboot the laptop I have to change the security protocol on the router between WPA Auto and WPA2-AES to get the laptop to connect. No other WiFi devices have difficulty connecting to the router so I suspect it's an issue with the laptop. I've tried uninstalling the Realtek driver to use the Windows one and I've tried the latest driver from the Lenovo support site, all to no avail. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.Many thanks.

My lenovo idea pad 100-15ibd ran into a problem while I was on it, not allowing me to do anything. So I turned the laptop off, and tried to turn it back on. When I did this it went into an auto repair, trying to fix disc errors. I let this run for more then 40 hours, before finally stopping it and turning the laptop off. When I did this, anytime I tried to turn the laptop on it would just sit on the Lenovo splash art, and I couldn't bring up a console with f8.
 
At this point I started looking up support on the forums, and found something about cutting all power, and removing the battery. To do this with my Ideapad, I had to take it apart, some. I DID break a lenovo sticker, that was hiding a screw. I assume that is how they would know if it had been opened. Cutting the power didn't work, so instead I took it to a nearby compute repair store. They told me it would likely cost more then half the laptops worth to fix, because it needed a new hard drive, and to be completely reset.
 
So I'm really just trying to see, if the one year warranty that IS still active, according to your website, had been fully voided; And if I'm just going to have to suck it up and drop the benjis.  Or if there is a chance that I could still have it fixed through its warranty. Any help is appreciated.

A:Ideapad 100-15IBD - Voided warranty?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry hear of your problem.  Most Lenovo Service Centers realize that folks will open their laptops in order to upgrade the various components.  Although opening the cover on a model like yours will void the warranty, the service center at times overlook that fact provided no damage was done.  The best I can say is contact Lenovo Support and explain the situation to them and get their opinion.  Regardless of what I write here, they will have the ultimate say as to whether the warranty is voided.  You might also check to see if there is a service center in your area where you could bring the machine in and explain the problem in person.  You can use the Service Locator below to see what is in your area......

Then installed Win 8.1 and made the external screen work...for about 5 minutes. Then installed Win 10 but external screen still ot working, tried at least 4 different VGA drivers, updated BIOS, etc. My conclusion is that there are serious driver issues with this laptop, Win 7 do not even bother trying.  Try Win 8.1 or 10 and let me know if you can use HDMI to project screen ,and the driver version you use! Thanks

Hi! Does this laptop model with InsydeH20 rev 5.0, Lenovo BIOS version EOCN61WW BIOS have any hidden options in it? I can't run some games with it to it's full potential, because the PL1 power limit it locked and set too low so it throttles if I don't cap my fps. I already undervolted it to get the powers down a little bit, but it didn't make enough difference. So I'd like to increase the power limit if it is possible somehow. I found some discussion on the case in point with other laptop models, but I'd like to know if it's possible with this specific device, before in dwell deeper into the matter. From what I gathered, I should tweak the EFI partiton variables with a Linux system for example. Am I on the right path here? You don't have to warn me about the riskyness, I know it and I have some experience in tweaking devices like this, not a guru though. E: I found out that I need some additional hardware to modify the BIOS (SPI Programmer and a SOIC clip). Do you have any other suggestions on what to do to stop the throttling?

Hello All, I have a problem with my new Ideapad 100-15IBD that I received today. Wireless or Ethernet connection is horribly slow - I have 50Mb/s connection and laptop is using 4-5Mb/s max (just to mention even Chrome download takes about an hour with this connection speed/quality). I have it with W10, but also formatted and installed W7 to check, if maybe it's faulty Realtek drivers (I tried both from Lenovo Support website and Realtek ones). On both versions of Windows the problem occurs. I am now back to W10, so it's as fresh as it gets. I tried different settings of Network Card, tried looking through forums about similar problems, but can't find anything, so I was wondering if anyone, preferably Support Team, has any tips or ideas why it's like this. The Network adapters I see are:Bluetooth devices x2 (not important for me at this point I believe)Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller (tried meddling with this one, now working on default as it's fresh installation)Realted RTL8723BE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NICI of course got it from retail, it's brand new, so I do not see how it could be broken already (talking about network adapter), so I thought that it's maybe software problem? Also - I noticed it's working even worse on 802.11n only than mixed. Thanks for any tips,c. PS. Sorry for my English, I'm not native speaker (Polish).

Didn't realize the laptop was unplugged and went completely dead sitting there for a month. Went to plug in to power up and nothing. Thought maybe cat chewed on charger cable and tested it and was only pulling 4v vs the 20v it's supposed to but tried new charger that Lenovo sent and still nothing. I've heard battery could be un-chargeable if left to completely die and sit for a while but still don't get why laptop won't boot up when plugged in.  Am I dealing with something else internal in addition to a dead battery?

I have had a Lenovo Ideapad 100s about three weeks. I may have solved the space bar problem some of these have by bending the pin-like bar under it so contact is better, but it now has a more serious problem.

I do not understand / why Lenovo made such small IdeaPads / they can not even perform needed Microsoft updates. I have now spend hours with restart / update attempt. Nothing seems to happen. Wish I could either bill my hours or return this "poor" piece of engineering work. Which the retail apparently do not know anything about (: The shop told me "what had you expected" -I clearly expect a piece of HW which supports the OS deployed

A:Ideapad 100S bricked by Windows update [Solved]

Attempting to boot from usb dvd drive I get: System doesn't have any CD/DVD boot option. Please select other boot option in Boot Manager view. ...Basically the same as for usb pendrive. I once had the back of this laptop off to see if ram can be added - can anything be done for my current issue there? (The ram and emc drive are not visible, presumably they're under the keyboard.) Any stabs in the dark even? I'll try guesses and 12 people have read this. The Lenovo phone line is expensive. Thanks.
