Preferred Solution: HELP! Lenovo Legion Y520 Touchpad not working !

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.)

My lenovo legion Y520 touchpad isn't responding at all, it is working fine for the first 1-2 hours when i use it, then suddenly it stops working for no reason at all, it got fixed everytime i restart the laptop, but it's too troublesome when im doing some work, here's some weird thing :1. When i go to the setting, the touchpad didn't have any option available but the touchpad sensivity,2. On the device manager the ELAN pointing device is up and running3. On the mouse properties it also says that the smartpad is enabled, but it didn't respond, not even the left-click and the right-click4. Everything else is working normally, Fn+F6 shows that the touchpad is on or off but the touchpad isnt responding when it was turned onI tried googling but couldn't found any similar problems to mine, i hope some experts could help up, thanks in advance! Edit : Im currently using windows 10

Hello, I'm an owner of Y520 that I bought less than a month ago and in the past few days, I have been experiencing a strange keyboard issue. At seemingly random times, several random keys will become completely unresponsive.The keys will work fine all day except for a few minutes here and there. For example, my 'e' 'g' 'h' '8' '9' and 'FN' keys just stopped working for about 3 minutes, now they are obviously working fine again. Sometimes it's for more than a few minutes and can be a nuisance.I've also noticed sometimes holding the key down for a while will fix it. I'm wondering if there's some sort of fix that I can try when this happens so that I don't have to take it to an authorized service center.Furthermore, I've noticed that there are more people having the same issue with the same keys as there are videos about it on Youtube. I bought my laptop in Europe but currently live in Canada so I am a bit worried if it is possible to find an authorized repair center. Thanks for any help.

Hi all,I've recently purchased a Lenovo Legion Y520 which had Windows 10 pre-installed on it.I wanted to install Linux on SDD as the main OS. I wanted to move windows installation from the SDD to HDD.So i backed up the windows partition with a third-party tool then formated the SDD completely including the recovery partition.I talked to merchant technical support and they told me that the license for windows is obtained with the motherboard serial but the recovery tool would guarantee restoring everything including driver updates & Lenovo useful softwares.I want to know where can i get an official image for the recovery partition in case i wanted to install windows again on the SDD without the previously created image.Thanks in advance.

I updated the BIOS yesterday and after using it today, i realised that the laptop was heating up, even though i wasn't playing any games. Just watching some videos on youtube using Microsoft Edge. The bottom side of the laptop, the one below the keyboard, felt hotter than usual. Same for the part right above the fan, one where the power button is. Never had an issue before the update as it never used to get hot enough for me to feel it unless I was playing a heavy game. It only gets better if I use the extreme cooling feature, but that shouldn't be the case for regular browsing. Could this BIOS update be the reason for my laptop heating up? Please help.

Hi, ich hab ein Problem mit meinem neuen Laptop. Es handelt sich um den Legion Y520. Er kam ohne Betriebsystem, deswegen habe ich alles selber aufgesetzt. Jetzt habe ich immer wieder Bildruckler. Egal ob beim Gaming oder beim Videos schauen oder beim Scrollen auf Internetseiten. Immer wieder hngt das Bild fr eine halbe Sekunde. Die Treiber habe ich alle von der Lenovo-Webseite heruntergeladen. Da es sowohl beim gaming als auch beim normalen Betrieb auftritt und der Laptop hier unterschiedliche Grafikkarten verwendet, denke ich, dass es etwas anderes ist... vll Windows? Hat Jemand eine Lsung fr mich? Bin fr jeden Hinwei dankbar.

I bought the Legion Y520 back in March or April and now the USB ports are constantly disconnecting and reconnecting intermittently. This happens both with my phone as well as my external periphreals such as my mouse. Windows says the USB is unrecognized and to verify USB ports are working properly. According to my Device Manager, all are up to date and no issues. Hoping there isn't a malfunction with the motherboard.

Hallo zusammen, ich habe gestern meinen neuen Legion Y520 15IKBN bekommen. Es hat kein Betriebssystem mitgeliefert, daher wollte ich von einer bootfhigen externen Festplatte Windows 10 installieren, aber irgendwas hat mit dem ISO-Abbild oder der externen Festplatte nicht gestimmt, sodass die Installation noch recht am Anfang abgebrochen wurde. Der Laptop hatte dann einfach einen Lila-Screen gehabt und auf nichts reagiert, daher habe ich ihn mit der Power-Taste ausgeschaltet. Heute habe ich mir einen USB-Stick besorgt und wollte die Installation nochmal versuchen, aber als ich den Laptop einschalten wollte, passierte nichts, auer dass die Tastaturbeleuchtung anfing zu blinken. Es sind auch keine Lftergerusche zu hren oder sonstiges. Ich habe bereits versucht das Akku-Kabel zu entfernen und die Power-Taste 20 Sekunden lang zu drcken, das Blinken hrt dann zwar auf, aber wenn ich die Power-Taste wieder drcke, blinkt die Tastatur wieder. Die Novo-Taste reagiert ebenfalls nicht. Was knnte ich denn noch versuchen? Viele Gre

I installed a WD Black 256G NVMe M.2 in my Legion Y520. Got Windows 10 installed in the SSD and Fedora 26 GNU/Linux in the HDD (1TB Seagate).  Everything is good in Windows. But when I use Fedora, the SSD, overheat badly (80-90C) and eventually shut itself down eventough it is not being used at all (it is not even mounted). This also happens in GRUB and ubuntu 16.04 (live USB). WD denied any support, they just say they are not optimized for Linux.

This is the second time that happens. Now I do not want to reset and loose all my programs installed on it. Please give me a safe and 100% solution for that. I already look up for it and found dozens of suggestions but I m not sure since this is my very new pc and so is better have a solution from you LENOVO. Endless looping boot is what happens. Or when I try to fix in the blue screen, I have actually only one option because all the rest goes and does not conclude saying it's not possible to do. Only option that works is to reset loosing all my programs already in it. Did once, in it won't do it again. Need a solution ASAP. Please

Hi, just got my Legion Y520-15IKBN Laptop and found this nasty jumping cursor issue. When the laptop is connected to the charger, once you put the finger on the touchpad the cursors starts jumping around. If you move the finger, the cursors kinda follows it, but with lags and still jumps around in different directions.   Disconnecting the charger seems to fix the issue, also if you pick the connected laptop from the table and put it on the hand it also fixes the problem some how.... I've installed the windows 10, all drivers from lenovo site including power management software, tried some tricks from this forum like disconnecting the charger, holding the power button for over 10 sec, and power it up again, nothing helps. Can anybody share some ideas on this? Thanks in advance.

My notebook is runnning Windows 10, and the touchpad has not been working well recently. I can use the touchpad to left click and select multiple items in the past, however this cannot be done now. The right click of the touchpad is not working too. I used to right click a link and select "open in new tab" in the past but now cannot. Either the left click or right click of the touchpad are not working well. I would be grateful if my problem can be fixed. Thank you!
