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,
 
Welcome to the forums.  Do you have Lenovo Vantage installed?  Under hardware settings is there something that looks like the below?  I have that option on my Thinkpad and I believe my nephew had it on his Ideapad too.

Hello everyone.I was wanting to play some game on my Lenovo when the screen froze. I manually shutdown my computer and ride to turn it back on. I got stuck on the automatic repair failed error message. So I searched for a lot of solutions which didn?t work so I decided to réinitialise windows because it has only been two weeks since I got it so it?s not a big deal. When it was done that?s when the problem started. When I press the power button, it displays the legion logo and i hear the fans and the keyboard LED?s light up but then it shutsdown and does the same loop ove and over again. I don?t know what to do.

So I have a Lenovi Legion Y530, I bought this very recently. Specs: i7 8750H, Gtx 1050Ti, 16 Gigs of Ram, 128Gb SSD, 1Tb HD. So I decided to overclock my gpu (with Msi Afterburner) I increased the GPU clock by 350mhz, and the memory clock by 150mhz. I also undervolted the cpu by -0.140 volts. (I'm pretty sure this is the gpu's problem). I tried running Time Spy in 3DMark. This worked before I overclocked. While the benchmark was loading, it froze on the loading screen. Everything else worked, but I couldn't exit. It was just stuck on the screen. I couldnt enter task manager, or go to the desktop. My only option was to force shutdown. When I turned it on the Legion logo popped up and had the loading icon. Then it disappeared and nothing's loads after it, it stays as a black screen. Keep in mind that I don't have the tools to access the internals of the laptop. So I need a way to fix it someway else. Thanks in advance.

Hello, I have had the following happen to 2 different Lenovo Legion Y530 laptops in the last week.For the first laptop it was accidentally allowed to run down to zero.For the second laptop it was intentially run down to zero to try to recreate this problem.  Unfortunately it succeeded.Here are the steps:Laptop runs down to zero and shuts off.  When plugged in, on power on, states laptop was not powered down normally and then brings up Recovery screen (blue screen).  Claims missing or errors in iaStorAC.sys.  The first laptop problem claimed HAL.dll was missing or corrupt.From the blue screen, most options lead back to this recovery screen.  Only the BIOS options goes elsewhere. From the novo button, I've tried:- System Recovery - appears to work but returns to Recovery screen.- Restore from Restore point (after booting from USB) - claims it works (after some hd repair) and then returns to Recovery screen.- From command line, repairing the boot config data (ran into permission errors on some commands) - no success. I called Lenovo support and after verifying that the harddrive was still recognized by the bios, had me attempt System Recovery from the novo menu.  When that failed, claimed it was a hardware issue and needed to be sent in for repair.  Seems unlikely it would be the same hardware problem on 2 separate laptops.  It seems related to the power down corrupting the boot files. From the recent reviews at Bestbuy...

While I am gaming my processor temperature goes MAX +99C and even idle temperature is +50C even bottom is faced up so air can flow 100% away. This isn't any normal to have temps like +100C while playing CSGO, Overwatch etc... The processor is i7-8750H. I think Lenovo should fix this issue for me.

I've had my laptop for less than 2 months, but recently I got stuck in an auto-repair loop (possibly a virus), so I took my laptop to my university's tech center. Once there they wiped my laptop clean and installed a fresh install of Windows 10. A couple of my drivers got deleted like my mouse and wifi drivers, but they re-installed them there as well. Everything was fine just a little slow, I re-installed all my apps/games back. I never really checked for Windows 10 updates until a couple days ago because I randomly got this error when trying to play my games. It would say something like this: "ERROR: your video card does not support alpha blending with floating point render targets (D3DFMT_A16B16G16R16F)". I have a GTX 1050 ti, so I was really confused. I looked up how to fix it on other forums and even Reddit. Apparently, this happens when your laptop tries using the GPU built into the motherboard instead of the actual graphics card. Many suggested uninstalling the current GPU drivers and re-installing them. So that's exactly what I tried, but now whenever I try to express install the newest driver on Geforce Experience; it says "The Standard NVIDIA graphics driver is not compatible with this version of Windows. Please update your driver using...(website)". The website it gives is not even available, so I look up and manually try to download/install the driver myself, but it gives me the same message it did on Geforce Experience. So I finally decide to update Win... Read more

I bought the laptop very recently about a month ago. One week ago i noticed that there is a gap between the display and frame. I went to the service center and theyput two sided tape to stick it.  I came back home and the camera section was overheating and the gap appeared again. I don't know if they can fix it or not. It's a very bad quality product to me. Did anyone face any issue like this? Thanks

Hi, i just bought the laptop from a retailer 2 days back. 1) I did a GPU stress test on Heaven Benchmark 4.0 and attached the results. The bench mark score is horrible. ( the FPS and GPU clock results are less than average , Nvidia settings were set to prefer Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050TI GPU and set for max performance ;not sure why? ) i also used GPU-Z to monitor the GPU clock speed and Nvidia 1050 TI has not been able to run further than 200 MHZ. 2) aside from this, the display will increase brightness suddenly then dims back to original brightness. ( adapative brightness is not ON in power plans btw)  i have done a Vantage hardware scan and nothing abnormal came up.Is there some defect with the GPU or related?

Hello !I have yesterday received a package with a new Lenovo Legion Y530 laptop. Overall I have loved it, until I found out that the keyboard has actual ghosting. I am not able to press certain keys combinations in the laptop, which really makes the gameplay much harder. For example, when I press Shift+W, Z key will not be read, and so will not respond when pressed at the same time. It happens for several other combinations. Now I'd like to ask, is that a problem with software ? Maybe it's just my faulty unit ? I find it hard to believe Lenovo would put a ghosting keyboard into a gaming laptop like Legion :/Thank you !

My Legion Y530 touchpad has been halting constantly, for up to a minute each time, for the last few days (I've had it for less than a week). I've tried installing updated Synaptics drivers (https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds104007), which did not have an effect. Also, the touchpad does not show up in the Device Manager (all of the "Firmware" entries show generic "Device Firmware" without any label). I've installed a dual boot Windows-Ubuntu system following the guide here (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops-Knowledge-Base/Installing-Ubuntu-18-04-on-the-Legion-Y53...), but the problem predates the new installation, and also occurs under both operating systems. Help!

I am really interested in the Y530 model with the 144 hz screen but I found almost no information which panel Lenovo uses - only that it should be brighter than the 60 hz model with 300 nits. I would be really interested to know if it has pwm, cause I am sensitive to that and also what about the colors (AdobeRGB / sRGB)

I bought the Legion Y530 on July 2018, yesterday during normal use, no gaming, windows asked me to restart due to automatic updates, I selected wait then about 10 min after that all of sudden the screen turned off and the computer restarted but the screen did not come back, not even the Lenovo logo is being displayed. I was able to connect an external monitor and log in on windows, then tried to remove the installed windows update and the laptop screen came alive again but the computer restarted and the screen died again. This is really bad for $1000 laptop. Actually I can see something on the screen, it is like it is with 3% of light. Very very dark images. To get even more worse, I bought the laptop in USA but I am from Brazil, where there is no Lenovo international support. This might be a sistematic issue of this model. There is another guy with the same problem, see below:https://www.reddit.com/r/Lenovo/comments/9ean09/legion_y530_black_screen/ Not sure what to do to get help.

Brother of mine tried to start up Rust today on my PC and all he got is black screen. We tried everything we can to do to fix it with no luck.Yesterday my laptop started acting up, like apps running on my GTX 1050 Ti would crash for no good reason. Temps were also low at that time.Drivers are the latest ones available installed. Latest Windows 10 Education build with newest updates installed. Newest BIOS update too. Had big heating problems previously, it was repasted with good thermal paste, still didn't help, was undervolting for good measure and helped with heating quite a bit.What to do? Go for warranty?

Hello everyone, I just bought a brand new Legion Y530 (like three days ago) from the official website and I realized that when the fans are spinning, there is a clicking noise coming from the right fan. It's even louder when i m tilting the bottom of the laptop or when the fans are spinning slowly.I just contacted the support but there was no "fan" section so I just posted it under the "Plastic problem" section. Do you guys have any idea how I could solve this issue? Because I'm pretty sure this problem will require a send back and I really don't have the time to wait for a month for my laptop to come back (and I'm pretty sure they won't send me a new fan so I really need your help). I wanted to show you a record of this noise but I can not upload a file on this page so I used SoundCloud instead Here is the link : https://soundcloud.com/artege/sound_problem_y530/ Thank you, C.T.
