Preferred Solution: Lenovo edge 15 & edge 2 hard disk running at 100 %

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.)

Since installing the November Windows 10 update (11/17/15) none of my favorites are being stored in the default Edge folder. While in Edge the favorites are available but when I go to the default folder they are not listed. Is there another location they may be being saved or has my default location somehow been changed? My AppData folder shows a creation date of 11/17/15 with no modifications being made in favorites since that date.

I tried upping from recommended 250% to 350% for use of a genealogy program made that program larger but nothing else and if I use pinch to spread out and enlarge then screen impossible to work on because it just jumps from side to side I set everything back and restated and still the same display smaller than before.  I have Nvided GEForce 960M video card and right now laptop is useless.

A:Display on XPS Infiniti edge to edge now so small cannot read anything

I didn't even realize you could go that high.  When I tried 250%, some things became so large that it became impossible to click important buttons since there wasn't enough display area to present them.  It sounds like your genealogy program isn't scaling-aware.  Also note that in some cases, after changing the scaling setting, you need to log off and back onto Windows for the change to fully take effect.
Also, what version of Windows are you running?  The display scaling functionality has changed significantly with each release of Windows from Win7 on, including within the various releases of Windows 10.

Hi, not sure where to post this.

It seems fine; however, one thing that annoys me is that my photographs, when in screensaver mode, are not Edge to edge and have about an inch and a half thick black bar at each side. The aspect ratio and everything else seems to be the same as my previous Samsung monitor but the Samsung monitor displayed the screensaver photographs from edge to edge. Can anyone help me out on this? Thanks

Good evening! I have a Lenovo Edge 2 that has been babied since purchased. Never abused, dropped, no scratches or dents, it's in fantastic condition still. I purchased the extended warranty, hoping I'd never need it.Last year, it stopped charging properly. The battery power dropped to 0%, and hasn't increased since. The machine will only power on when plugged in to AC power, and will immediately power down when the adapter is disconnected. The charging status indicator LED on the right side of the machine flashes orange in a non-steady, intermittent pattern, and the charging indicator in the taskbar in Windows 10 does the same thing. I returned the machine to Best Buy, they sent it to their "Geek Squad" facility for repairs, and the AC Adaptor and battery were replaced, under warranty. The machine was returned to me, and still doesn't charge.I contacted Lenovo, they advised I would need to return it to their facility for repairs. I put it in the provided box, and dropped it off to FedEx on 6/24/17. It's now been 2 weeks. I contacted Lenovo to inquire about the status of the repair, and was told "The technician found evidence of damage, and the upper case will need to be replaced as well, but damage isn't covered under warranty, so you'll need to cover the cost of the repair." I asked for the price, was told "A technician will email you with the price." I inquired about the status of the original repairs, they told me the claim was on hold, pending my review and... Read more

The product Lenovo edge 15, I purchased and just opening and closing it from laptop mode to tablet mode broke the surface part of the hinges. After that happened shortly after within a week or so, the whole computer stopped working. It will not turn on period, even with charge. Even though I barely used it. I went to basic training, came back and the warranty had expired for anything. I was going to college and paid my last few money I had to buy that computer only for it stop working, now I'm still a college student having to go to library just for use of a computer. I'm thoroughly upset at my situation and at the durability & design of the product. I would love to have a new one or to trade it in for my money back.

Hi,I have an edge 15 first gen (with i7 4510u) and my digitizer broke. I bought a new one and only then found out the hard way I can't seperate the digitizer and the LCD - and broke both.Thinking about how worn my machine is (touchpad is flimsy and the metel is bent everywhere), I was thinking of buying the cheapest new i3 (I think it's edge 2, model is 80k9) off ebay, then swapping my old mainboard in place of the new i3 mainboard. Then I may get an almost new laptop.Do you think it will work, will the older mainboard fit in the newer machine?Thanks.

Windows 7 I am on a Gateway Intel 400 2 gb Ram 1 Tb harddrive using my large screen TV Mitsibuish as my monitor. Since installing Windows 7 my display has been edge to edge on my TV display. Recently after downloading a startup utility called starstartup my display changed with a two inch border on all sides. I have since deleted the startup utility but the border remain. I restored my computer to an earlier restore point nothing changed. So I think there must be another reason for this change in the display. On another hard drive with Windows XP which was also displaying edge to edge display but after I installed windows 8 beta the same thing occurred there was a border instead of the edge to edge display. I attempted to change the resolution which was on 1920 X 1080 to a lesser resolution but that didn't correct the display. So the resolution is back to 1920 X 1080. I clicked on full screen mode stay the same. Would like to get back to the edge to edge display. Hope you can help. Xandr

When I turned my Edge 15 (80H1) off the other day, it was working fine.  I went to turn it back on the next day, and all I got was the power light blinking slowly (approx. 1 second intervals).  When it is plugged in the light that usually indicates it's plugged in isn't on any more.  I can't get th power light to stop blinking when it's not plugged in.  The only way to get it to stop blinking is if I plug it in (still blinking) and then remove the power cord (then it stops), but of course won't power up.  Any advice would be appreciated.

Using Windows 10 version 1511 and all updates.  Used the Lenovo System Update and everything has been updated.  I wanted to turn on the built-in camera on my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 530, the F5 key, and it came up with a message saying, "This key combination opens the Lenovo Settings Program. You do not have the Lenovo Settings Program installed on your computer. To launch the program using this key combination, install the program first." I went and downloaded the Thinkpad Settings Dependency for Windows 10, restarted the laptop and it still doesn't work. Even the Lenovo System Update program has it and I also downloaded it.  I restarted the laptop again and it still doesn't work. I then went to install the Lenovo Settings App on the Windows store and it doesn't look like the right one plus it still didn't work. My other problem is with the Lenovo Companion App from the Windows Store.  It worked before but now it ask to "Please install or update the Lenovo System Interface Driver for full functionality of Companion, then restart the app after installation."  I have installed the Lenovo System Interface Driver multiple times and it still popped up that message.  Yes, I have restarted the laptop and Companion.   Is there a reason why these issues are happening and how to fix it?  Thank you in advance.

I have a Lenovo edge 2 with windows 10. The problem: Randomly my screen goes black with the LED light still on. Sound goes off as well and mouse does not appear. Seems like its crashing. Happens about 2-3 times in a span of 4-5 hours. When I check my system event log, around the time of the crash I have 1 error and 1 warning  1 second apart as follows: ERROR: A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the FontCache3.0.0.0 service to connect. WARNING: The speed of processor 3 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report. I also get a "could not reconnect to all network drivers" message at start-up which may or may not be related. Could this be malware?? Anyone know how to fix it? Thank you.

I have a very strange issue with my processor underclocking.The factory specs for this laptop state my processor is the intel i7 500U @ 2.4GHz. Which it does fine and has perfect performance. Unless my laptop is under 20 percent AND plugged in (yes, plugged in, not on battery). I fmy laptop gets low on charge and drops below 20 percent I can hardly use it at the same time it is charging because it underclocks my cpu to a max clock of .5GHz rendering my laptop extremely sluggish even when doing simple operations. Once it has charged to 20 percent or above I have to disconnect the charger and then the cpu will throttle back up and then I can reconnect the charger without it underclocking until next time it has dropped below 20 percent and I plug it in. Please tell me if you have a suggested fix or if this may be a hardware problem (which seems a little unlikely). For the record I have played around with every option in the advanced power settings and have it on high performance mode and everything but nothing fixes it. Thanks in advance, Alex
