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.)

Hi guys.So i bought an Lenovo ideapad 720s about a month ago, and since i got it i have been realy bothered by the fact that it is not leveled. It seems like the bottom left corner and the top right is higer then the two other corners. So everytime i lay my hand down to type i can clearly feel the bump caused by the lack of contact with the table. I have tried to bend the base of the laptop to fix it, but it dosent work. The problem might even be that the whole base is not flat, im not sure.Dont know what to do about this, and i really dont feel like sending my laptop to a service senter as it would take quite a while before i would get it back. But if that is the only option i guess i just have to. All sugestions apreciatedThanks in advance

Hi All, I have just purchased the Ideapad 720S and have been having a problem with the WiFi. I noticed that it would slow down and the network would become unresponsive while getting content from my NAS box. If I ping my router, I also noticed that there is a high latency which varies loads, never really going below 3ms, but sometime dropping a ping and often going up to 20 - 40ms +! I have tested the laptop on 2.4 and 5 GHz bands and the situation is the same. I have also tried a different Access Point, but the problem persists. My old 7 year old Dell XPS15 does not exibity this problem. I have updated the WiFI Driver (Atheros QCA9377) to the latest on the Lenovo Website, it shows as 12.0.0.295. I have also set the Power plan to max performance on the WiFi apapter. Any help with this problem would be appreciated, Thanks -Ben

Hello, I am posting on behalf of my mom. Similar to some complaints of the Yoga Series her IdeaPad 720s screen is beginning to separate from the panel. Because I seldom ever use her laptop I've not really noticed. While trying to figure out an issue shes been having with some work software (electronic health records), I noticed that the bottom of the panel (in between the rubber seal and hinge area) is slightly exposed and is showing some of the innards of the laptop. She doesn't have the greatest eye sight, so she hasn't noticed. Is anyone else having these issues? Is there a fix or am I going to have to RMA the unit? She's only had the unit for about a month and a half.

Do you know when the ideapad 720s (with 8th gen cpu) with the GeForce mx150 will be released in the UK (if at all)?I can see it on several european websites and also on the US store but I cannot see it on the UK store. I have tried to contact sales through chat but they are unsure. I need to buy a laptop soon and dont know whether to buy the older version with the 940mx, or wait for the newer version with the mx150 (which is what I would rather do, hopefully before black friday sales) but that would depend on the release date.Would appreciate if someone from lenovo could give me a specific date?Thanks in advance

Hello, I recently ordered an Ideapad 720s (13-inch). Lenovo web site mentions "*Connecting to a display requires a USB-C to HDMI or DisplayPort cable, depending on display interface." I was wondering I should buy a USB-HDMI cable or an adapter to connect this laptop to an external display. Does anyone know whether the Ideapad 720s (13-inch) model supports native HDMI through a USB port, namely the HDMI Alt Mode for USB Type-C? (as specified in https://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer/HDMIAltModeUSBTypeC.aspx) Regards,Franky

Hi bruce90matrix,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Similar to discussions here and here:
 
Product specifications: 
16GB max7 ; PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3*, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets
 
OEM recommended HDD capacity is 1TB as offered here on the FRU list of the hardware manual (page 26 here). 
Resellers like crucial would offer 2 TB so it would be best to check returns options just in case.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

I'm sorry to write it here, but I could not post independent for some reason. Anyway, I bough last week the Lenovo Ideapad 720s 13k. It is wonderful, except for the engine noise it makes - even in ordinary operations (opening some chrome tabs, watching a video on YouTube). I saw there was a similar problem with the YOGA. Does anyone know what can be done with this model? Is there a need to go to the lab?

Hi, I ordered an IdeaPad 720S - 14IKB on the 15/09. I was especially enticed considering it said that it shipped within 1-2 business days and I needed it asap for college. It's been almost 10 days, and my order still says "In Process". The money has been removed from my account, I received an email saying it would ship in 1-3 days. Nothing progressed so I rang support on the 21/09, and was told there was a delay with this model (no details on what about), I was told I'd receive an email with an estimated shipping date the next day, but I got nothing. I also reported that there was an error in my shipping address, and that the billing address was more accurate so as to not confuse the courier. I rang again yesterday (25/09) and was told they would send the message on to request the shipping address be changed to the billing, and I would also be given an update on my order status before 6pm today and the guy apologised that I wasn't getting any relay of my laptop. I feel like I'm being runaround here and would appreciate if some staff online would be able to give me some help, since the people on the phone aren't doing anything at all. I understand companies being iffy about altering shipping address, it's a very small error, where I accidently put my workplace on to my residential address when it's actually in a different town. Any help is appreciated.Thanks

HiI bought a new Ideapad 510 and immediately installed another SSD with more GB's and all my data on it.  From the moment I started the laptop the fan was extremely loud regardless of CPU usage. When I start up my laptop it's very silent up until the moment I enter my password and the OS starts booting. From that moment onwards it's ridiculously loud. It will sporadically go softer but once I then launch any application it goes loud again. I don't think that it's a manufacturing issue (but that's just my instinct) but rather some problem with the calibration between the fan and my own SSD rather than the stock SSD (if that makes any sense) Can anyone help me out because I need it?

Hi jamienffc , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
You can use the hardware manual for disassembly guide (page39) and likewise follow the steps advised on this thread:
 
" 1. Install the ATIH on the HDD2. Insert SSD into the external USB box. Yes, this advice is in opposite of goretsky's one. That box costs 10...20 bucks3. Launch the ATIH, select the clonong process:a)the whole driveb)in manual mode (leave the size of partition System_DRV as is, partition C: will be resized in proportion, as well as the Q: )4. The app will reboot the laptop for the cloning process.5. Wait several hours . After finish replace the SSD and the HDD. Boot from the SSD.6. If you have Factory Recovery media already you can delete Lenovo_Recovery partition on the SSD. Resize the system partition (add the free size from the Q: ), even make the new partition7. Reinstall Lenovo R&R applicationn in order to get working ThinkVantage button at the laptop boot stage." 
 
Some vendors have their own cloners offered free with the SSD , on this thread Acronis True Image 2014 (Home) was used but you can freely choose one that you are more familiar with.
 
Hope this help answer your query.

Does anyone know if the Intel 7260HMW 802.11ac mPCI-e card is on the whitelist for the u530. Information on this isn't just scarce... it's nonexistent. I bought this laptop with the intention of upgrading the network card and had never heard of this "whitelist" thing before until I started actively researching the process. Anyway, my system has the 7260bgn 802.11n card. It's an okay card, but I'd like to be able to upgrade eventually. Hopefully Lenovo has tested the ac version of this card already and put it on the whitelist. Does anyone know?
