I encountered the BSOD with the problem about atikmpag.sys It seems like I made a wrong choice about deleting it, (solution from internet searching)  and now the Display Adapters doesn't work anymore as you can see in the pictures  after deleting the atikmpag.sys during safe mode, It somehow resolved the problem about the BSOD and my laptop are finally starting properly now the problem is about the resolution, it's not the same anymore, it's too low and somehow the screen is blurry, as you can see at the Graphics section, the maximum resolution I can only choose is 1024 x 768, which is supposed to be 1366 x 768 (HD) if i'm not mistaken,   I need your help on how to fix this I hope i can turn it back to normal., I don't have a CD installer (if it is supposed to have one) to re-install it, and about downloading from other sites I'm a little bit concerned about that so I haven't tried it yet.. and it seems like Lenovo has its own installer... Pls help ASAP

A:Lenovo G470 atikmpag.sys problem

hi jm9327,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
The G470 with a dual GPU (Intel+AMD), uses a muxless driver (this is a custom driver that switches the discrete AMD Graphics to the Intel Graphics to save power). If you have installed a different driver, this may cause system instability (including BSOD).
 
If you're running on Windows 7, try the following::
 
1. Follow this guide on how to disable automatic driver installation.
2. Install these drivers in order (reboot if necessary)
   (1st)  - Intel Onboard Graphics Driver for Windows 7 (64-bit)
   (2nd)  - AMD Video Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)
 
When finished, check if the yellow exclamation marks are gone under Device Manager > Display Adapters and observe the screen resolution adjustment and BSOD occurrence.
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

I have been having an issue with my Lenovo Yoga 710's video card, It seems to be incompatible with several windows, intel, lenovo and 3rd party programs. Powershell ISE, anything created with javafx/awt, Intel update application, etc. The applications will not display unless I uninstall/disable the graphics card and use the windows default driver. This Issue has been going on for since early 2017. The video card is intel 515 with a driver version of 21.20.16.4550. I attempted to install the current driver from the lenovo website but an error occurs saying my system is not compatible with the drivers.

A:G470 - Bluetooth not working after installing Windows 10 on G470

Hi ashu2000 , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Checking on the Lenovo supported systems list for Windows 10 Upgrade ,  "not listed, it hasn?t been tested for Windows 10 upgrade and is not supported. " for the G570 .
 
Same reasons why on the support site , drivers for windows 10 is not available. 
 
There are claims that it works ok but some have reported devices and apps not working after the upgrade. 
You may check related threads here . 
 
Would there be any yellow or black down arrow marks on the device manager . 
If that is the case , then you may want to try checking the hardware ID to download specific driver directly from the manufacturer if the Windows 8.1 version driver would not help.
Example for Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Driver or use windows updates to install appropriate drivers
 
On device manager , you may also use built in drivers in Windows 10  doing upgrade drivers and, browse on this pc , let me pick option, and choose recommended ones on the list .  
 
Hope this helps. 
 
 
Regards

(I am only writing this because my parents refuse to listen to me and they want "Lenovo" to help me with this problem.)So I own a Lenovo G470 (Ideapad) that I bought in 2011. About 7 months ago, the laptop's hinges started to become lose and then since 4-5 months, bits and pieces of the laptop case keep falling apart/breaking around the hinges. It was a bit bothersome but nothing too serious.However, last week the laptop's screen became tilted (??) like one hinge/side is up and the other is down. It's almost diagonal. And the wire connecting to the laptop screen is exposed (i dont know how) maybe because the hinge's piece broke so the wire is exposed and it's almost on the verge of breaking too. (Ill be attaching the pics of the laptop below.)My warranty expired ages ago. But I dont mind paying for the repair. Is there a way if I contact a real Lenovo store nearby and ask them to "repair" my broken laptop. My parents would rather spend 80-140 dollars repairing this than buy me a new 700/800 dollar laptop.Honestly, if some of you wanna tell me that this laptop is beyond repair, believe me I know! My parents refuse to listen to me -_- So this is just to prove them Im right. FRONT:- https://imgur.com/4viSonH- https://imgur.com/D1pX3I0LEFT SIDE:- https://imgur.com/IKEdGI4- https://imgur.com/L6HmMPw- https://imgur.com/7qk0CMm- https://imgur.com/j5usW0nRIGHT SIDE:- https://imgur.com/wjONWoE- https://imgur.com/peerlHE- https://imgur.com/JU81ZrI- https://imgur.com/gvsWs5S- https...

A:My laptop's falling apart.. Lenovo G470

If you think you have a flat tire do you keep on going until the tire disintegrates and you destroy the rim? That's what you did to your own laptop.You should've taken action as soon as you noticed something is happening with the hinge.There's not much you can do right now to fix it. Only thing I'd advise is to find a broken one online with the body intact (at least when it comes to the bottom part and hinges). e.g. with a smashed screen and make a transplant. Have it done by a professional if you can't do it on your own.

A:Lenovo G470 battery connection lost

Hi Mkmm9,
               
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing an issue with the battery charging.
 
Please disconnect all the external devices connected to the system. Also remove battery and adapter as well.
 
Now press and hold the power button for 30 seconds and turn on the machine and check for the issue.
 
 Remove the battery from your laptop and check the battery connection "pins" in the laptop. The pins are the vertical slots in the center of the battery tray. See if perhaps one or more may have been bent enough to not make contact with the battery pins. Also check to see if lint, dirt or some other foreign matter has gotten between the pins on either the battery or the laptop. Have you tried the battery from the other laptop? If a different battery doesn't work, your problem is with the laptop pins. One or more may have broken or become disconnected. Try all possible combinations to narrow down the trouble spot.
 
Hope this helps! Do post us back for further queries.
 
Best regards,

Which version of Windows you have shouldn't affect how your battery is charged up so it's probably just coincidence.

You may be needing a new battery. Do you have anyone nearby who can check the battery for you?

After spending an inordinate amount of time searching the internet about my problem, and then contacting Lenovo (who told me it was hardware and I needed to return all of the laptops I bought), I managed to magically find the solution to my problem.  Since it wasn't documented elsewhere on the internet, I thought I'd create a post for it here. The problem I was having was that my Lenovo G470 laptop did not display Press F2 to Enter Setup during the boot process, and because of this, no amount of hammering the F2 button would allow access to the BIOS.  I attempted all of the standard fixes, pulled the battery, held power down for 30 seconds, removed the HDD -- nothing would cause this to appear.  Since it was happening on all 3 of the G470s we just purchased, I didn't believe it was hardware.  I reached out to Lenovo Premium Support, and after about 3 minutes of discussion, "Paul" informed me that all three machines were defective and would have to be sent back in for repair, and it would take 4-6 weeks for repair and diagnosis.   As I had been noodling around with the machines for a few days, ONE of the three ended up showing the bios options during the boot process.  At that point, I had been hitting just about every single key on the keyboard during the boot process, so I couldn't identify what it was that I did that caused the options to appear.  A little more troubleshooting and I figured it out: Lenovo G470 machines equip...

Hi rsprowls, You can try and download the latest driver of the video card from http://support.amd.com/en-us. If the driver update does not resolve the issue, I would recommend getting a new system. The video card is integrated into motherboard a getting a new motherboard for this model may be difficult, and the cost would not be economical. If your are still interested in replacing the motherboard, you can get the part number from the Hardware Maintenance Manual at support.lenovo.com  under the Documentation of the system. Hope this helps. Cheers,

Lenovo Think center  M55 MT-M 8810-D3U I beleive this is SFFThe other day I was at Micro center near me and saw some video cards that said ATX 1300 $19.95 I know I could get them cheaper on line but dont know if it would work fo M55 as i went to pay it rang up $3.50 so I took 2I installed it and of course it wouldnt work so I removed it and decided to flash my bios installed again and it worked very excited now.I came in the next morning and computer was dead.I didnt rember if I shut it or left it running.Anyway playing around power supply would go on when i plugged it in but wouldnt boot I really thought I blew something on board but was also guessing that power supply problem.Trip to microcenter again bought home 2 power supply 300watt sff for $60 and one not sff 400watt for $15 they both worked none of them fit inside.I really wasnt going to spend the $60 so I have the cheaper seating on my box so called 400watt.At this point I dont mind the computer sits flat on my desk with monitor on it and doesnt move much and I could modify the power supply tie wrapping or clamping with a bracket to the cover.First of all is there any reasonable priced power supply 300watt or more that would fit in there(or I just live with this),also does this video card take so much power that it would kill my power supply?

Is it possible? It currently has NVIDIA GeForce GT 730. Its not bad, but it definitely isnt enough for me. I would like to upgrade but I'm worried the powersupply cant handle an upgrade.  Please help.

A:Lenovo IdeaCentre 700-25ISH video card upgrade.

I believe that those come with a 400w power supply (PSU), but you should check to be sure.   The 400w PSU would support up to a Nvidia GTX 960 GPU, but beyond that you would probably need to upgrade the PSU to a 600w or better depending what the power requirements are on the GPU(s)  you plan on installing.       You can install a standard 600w (or better) ATX power supply, but you will need to buy a 24pin to 10pin adapter to connect to the system board, because for some reason Lenovo chose to use use a proprietary 10pin connection in its "Easy-to-Upgrade Powerhouses", instead of the industry standard 24pin connection, which before an adapter was released by a 3rd party, made upgrading its "Easy-to-Upgrade" systems PSU very very difficult. Good Luck,   IBM Lenovo PSU Main Power 24-Pin to 10-Pin Adapter Cable (30cm)http://www.moddiy.com/products/IBM-Lenovo-PSU-Main-Power-24%252dPin-to-10%252dPin-Adapter-Cable-%283...

Hi,

I format my Lenovo y530 notebook today. But there is a problem. After installation, Windows7 doesn't see my videocard. I can't remember exactly but I have a G-force 9300M or 9500M. But in Computer Management, It shown as "Standart VGA Graphics Adapter". How can I find my video card again?

Please help. Thanks for your answers.
 

A:Win7 doesn't see my video card. Lenovo y530

Windows 7 has installed a generic driver for the card. You need to go the cards manufacturers site and download the correct driver for windows 7. Then unistall the card in Device Manager and then install the new driver.

Hi dhananjay333,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Do you have an actual video issue?
 
Similarly noted in this article:
 
" The result code might be WVC00R000-XXXXXX where 000 represents there is no hardware issue for the Graphics Card.  The warning information can be ignored."

My pc is a Lenovov H50-55 with onboard AMD Radeon R700 graphics (1G dedicated & up to 6G extended). When Lenovo hardware scan kicked off today, all diagnostics passed - except for the video card. When I ran extended diagniostics, it failed on extended video memory test with a code of W19UJ2AAC-RVS4HE and "video memory". It offered to take me to support to order a "new video card." Well, first of all, it is built into the motherboard, and I don't know what the full explanation of that error code is. Can anyone help? Now when I run LSB from the downloaded file on the website here, it doesn't even get to that test before it fails. What is this telling me, and is there (other than bypassing the onboard video hardware) that can be sdone to alleviate the problem?

Hi,I've been considering buying a new GPU for my SFF M92p.I currently have 1GB 620 GT nvidia GPU & I would like to upgrade to a 2GB GPU.  i7-3770 Cpu 3.4GHzWindows 1016GB DDR3 RAM1T HDPSU - 240 Watt I need professional assistance on : - Can i find 2GB GPU to use on this current system @ 240 ?- If not, would i need to change my PSU ? And where do i buy such a unit ? What's it called ? [It's for gaming]

The GTX 750 Ti could work with a SFF M92p.   Upgrade to the latest BIOS beforehand, CD ISO method is most reliable.   Check that there aren't any taller heatsinks on the motherboard that could interfere with the graphics card (refer to photos of the card.)   
 
Since your system is older, to ensure the necessary airflow, clean the front air intake and fan with vacuum and canned compressed air, jam the fan with a cable tie or similar so it can't spin and over-speed.  Same for CPU fan and heat sink, and vac the intake and rear exhaust of the power supply.  
 

I can confirm that this MSI brand low-profile  GTX 750 Ti 2GB  card works perfectly in my M93p SFF machine without upgrading the PSU:   MSI N750-Ti-2GD5TLP
 
Measuring the power draw running Prime95 (CPU benchmark) , FurMark (GPU benchmark) , charging mobile phone via USB and copying large files at the same time , it stays below 190W.   Have been running this for several hours. I have also been playing Fallout 4 (FullHD, ultra textures, 60 FPS) for 100 hours without any problems.   As the case is quite compact, I was worried about the temperature but it stays below 80C for the GPU at full power over extended periods of time (about 25C ambient temp in the room). 
 
Installation is ok. Just mount the low profile bracket and move the PCIe 1x WiFi card (if you have one) into another slot.  Preferably le... Read more
