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.)

Hello. I would like to be able to correctly set the hotkey mode, so that my function keys will default to their special functions (adjusting volume, brightness, etc). I have been unable to find this setting in either the BIOS or the Lenovo Vantage app. I have tried updating the BIOS, restoring it's defaults, both updating and reinstalling the Lenovo Vantage app, and still the setting is no where to be found. Please help. The laptop is a Legion Y540-17IRH Thank you- Max

I just bought a brand new legion Y540. I don't know how to access the advanced BIOS menu, the menu I can currently access has very little settings. Anyone managed to access the "Debug Bios"? I saw someone give a weird solution for the Y740 which was to click on every key + Fn on the keyboard then click F10 but it sadly didn't work for my Y540.

Hello, Just recently purchased the Legion Y540, and I'm trying to figure out how to control the fan speed. I've been through 3 chat sessions with Lenovo, no luck there. So far it seems the only way to control the fans is with Extreme Cooling through Lenovo Nerve Center. I've downloaded the most recent version of this program, and that function is not there. Only 2 of the 4 functions are there (Prevent Mistaken Input and Network Priority). Looking through the forums, this seems to be a common problem with Nerve Center on other Lenovo computers. Lenovo can you please fix this program? I have updated my BIOS to BHCN28WW (Also tried BHCN27WW, as provided by the Lenovo Support Specialist in chat), the most recent one, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Nerve Center, no luck anywhere. Lenovo Vantage seems to have very limited control option ("Performance Mode" = "Higher CPU usage, higher fan speed"? What if my GPU usage/temp is high but my CPU isn't, so the fans won't kick in?). Just looking to keep my gaming laptop cool while gaming. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, Still trying to decide on the display type when buying this Legion Y540 laptop. I have not got enough awnsers. I asked before in this thread : https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/y540-60hrz-vs-144hz-display-differences/m-p/4515501#M304... , And was adviced this page : https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/Lenovo%20Laptops/Lenovo%20Legion%20Y540-15IRH/Lenovo_Legion... I dont think its enough. I want to know conclusively, if there are any other differences between the 300 nits 60hz and 144hz display panels aside from the framerates. Now i know they will have the same color gamut, and brightness, but what about response times? Cant find anything about that. And what about the bits? Are they 6 bit ( +dithering maybe ) or 8 bit? Are they the same panels ( ie brand etc. ), with the only difference being the framerate? Or are they different ( ie brand / response times / etc ). I find the specsheet lacking. Sorry for the many questions, i am merely trying to pick the best laptop for my son with the money i can afford, and i get a little "carried away" on specs etc. I mean its only 50euro differnce between the 2 panels, so if anything other than the framerates is inferior on the 60 hz panel, i think i will go with the 144hz panel. If they are exactly the same apart from framerates, i will go with the 60Hz panel and save 50eu to maybe spend it on insurance or something. Please help a me make a good, informed choise and make my son ...

I just figured out after a few days of trying to use the auto update utility, that the reason its failing to function properly (or at all) is because in my bios there is no Model or Serial number. They just say INVALID. I've seen similar things online but none of the tools available mention anything other than Thinkpads and Thinkcentre. I figure this would be a really easy issue to fix if I could just get the right tool. Any help would be appreciated.  And I tried calling in and they are so confused about what I meant, so I dont think thats going to be an option. Guy was telling me I needed to uninstall and reinstall the lenovo driver auto update utility.... That was the first thing I did 5 days ago when this whole thing started. I need level 4 tech support now lol.

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.

Lenovo Legion Legion Y520  running windows 10 I am connected to a Sony TV by HDMI.  When I use the TV as the only display or as an extended display the image is downscaled to 720p.  If I clone the display from my laptop it will render full 1080p. All of the settings I can find appear to be correct.  The laptop says that it is displaying 1920x1080.  I would like to get the TV to work as primary display.  I know it is not the TV.  It can display the cloned desktop and works properly for game consoles also using HDMI.  I have tried using different HDMI ports on the TV.

Hi,I am interested in purchasing a Lenovo Legion Y540 gaming laptop (the 15-inch version). After configuring it I noticed that the keyboard is in German. Is there a way to change that? I currently live in Germany, so I guess that's why I am offered the german version, but I am much more comfortable with an English keyboard. Thank you for your help!

Hi everyone,I've been using a Lenovo Y540 from last month and I have noticed a lag (0.5s to 2s) when I try to Alt + Tab and switch windows.Windows is up to date. Ensured the drivers are all the up to date from Device Manager.I've tried searching online about this and most people suspect and recommend to turn of Focus Assist and I've done that multiple times with no real solution.This seems to be an issue with many recent Lenovo machines. Has anyone here faced this issue and have any solutions for this?
