Q: Lenovo Yoga 3 - 1470 (80JH) - General issues to so...

Hi guys, I am opening this post because I think that it could be useful to everyone who would like to solve several issues related to this laptop. I think that it is a really good notebook but it needs a lot of work to have it working in a proper way.So first of all I am posting here a link of a doc in which I am monitoring several issues I encountered and how I solved them. I know that it is not very easy to read it because its style is personal notes-like but I am sharing it anyone...probably someone can find the information it needs.Lenovo Yoga 3 1470 80JH monitoring doc

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.)

A: Lenovo Yoga 3 - 1470 (80JH) - General issues to so...

In this second post I am sharing the configuration to use with Notebook Fan Control software (probably some of you already know about this software if you hate the noise which fans of this laptop are able to do!). I added of course some considerations I noticed in preparing this config.Here we are... Yoga 3 1470 80JH using Windows 10 and NBFC 1.4.2.I appreciated a lot the work done by Mr. Cheeze but I found it incomplete, so I basically investigated the issue a bit more.I did not open the notebook but I found online that it is equipped with 2 fans. So, first step was adding the 2nd fan. Then I started to investigate if we can effectively control the fans and the answer is NO, but we can play a bit to force them to have a behavior. My target was only one: REDUCE the FANS NOISE and consequently their speed, because I think that this laptop is almost able to work in fanless mode (and believe me I stress it a lot, especially in terms of multitasking). Before showing my personal code to be used in NBFC I am giving you some information I retrieved by the Read&Write software (32bit version works well).?When Fans starts HEX values show up at position 6 and 254. These are the 2 actual speed values of the fans.?The target values (so where you have to write the desired fans speed) are in position 86 and 176. I am not totally sure if they are the effective position to write but they seem the only position which considerably vary according to the change of fans speed For the sake of precision, I used the fan dust removal tool in the lenovo optimizer app to see how the fans speed changes and I assumed that the maximum speed is equal to the one produced by this tool. I have to mention here other three aspects:1. I have used as maximum the maximum value observed2. Without using NBFC the system never reaches this maximum speed because it is really very noisy. In normal condition the maximum speed is about 2/3 (still noisy for me) of the one reached when dust removal tool is used.3. The speed you have when dust removal is working is not the maximum possible one in reality. In the case you update the BIOS you can "appreciate" a noisy never heard before on the fans (but the PC is in DOS mode, so I could not measured it...for this reason I did not consider it) Ok, now it is time to post the configuration, but before that... KEEP IN MIND:1. I played a bit with the temperatures thresholds and fans speeds to force the fans to work at about the half of their speed (value which I consider acceptable in terms of noise). WE ARE NOT ABLE TO CONTROL THE FANS SPEED because the EC updates continuously the target value where we will write the desired speed. So reducing the EC poll interval at 500 ms, with this configuration I am continuously forcing the target value to stay at the desired one.2. The response time of the fans is not quick, so with this configuration the fans barely start to run (you have to stay at high CPU temp. a lot to notice the fans starting running)3. Play with the fans speeds and temperature thresholds according to your needs!!! E.g. if you want to fans constantly running at a fixed speed insert the speed % you desire even at the lowest CPU temp. ranges and you can notice the fans constantly running.4. I think the system is not able to use the fans at each speeds we want but there are only some fans speeds which can be accepted. Here I am indicating someones in terms of %: 0%?40.3%?45.8%?52.8%?66.7% (you can deduce the decimal value considering that 0% is 0 and 100% is 72....and of course from these you can calculate the hex values). Just to be clear, for me 52.8% starts to be noisy. Ok, now enjoy the code! Lenovo Yoga 3 1470 - Fans Control code for NBFC

Sound was working when I went to bed, in the morning it wasn't.  Popup on speaker icon in system tray says "no audio output device is installed." Updated all drivers using iObit Driver scanner.  When that didn't find an audio adapter I rand the driver scanner on the Lenovo support site and it said no new drivers were needed.  Ran recovery from the startup and chose option to completely wipe the hard drive, files, progrmas etc. and install Windows 10 to factory settings - still no sound adapter. Saw a similar forum post with a link to a Reatek driver so installed it - no change.  Also followed instructions to uninstall sound in device manager but it wasn't there to uninstall. Ran Lenovo diagnostics from support site and it says there are no hardware problems and it sees sound adapter. I'm stumped. Any suggestions?

Hi, yestarday I was using my laptop with several opened applications and 1 hangouts video call active.Well, the CPU has decided to freeze at 0.5 GHz due to the generated heat. The laptop of course became unusable, so I closed everything and restarted the system. Once the reboot was completed I noticed that frequency was still at 0.5 GHz. Then I ran an Ubuntu live usb and I checked the CPU: again, still at 0.5GHz. I came back to Windows 10, I made a bit of research and I used ThrottleStop. I unticked the BD Prochot and then the laptop came back to life with frequency at 2.9 GHz (for the sake of precision it works even without turning on Throttle stop...you only need to launch the app and untick the prochot).Now, the problem is that I can use the laptop with all its capabilities only after I run Throttle stop. In all the other cases, even when I boot my laptop, frequency is at 0.5 GHz (and you understand it is working at low frequency because it lags a lot). Investigating a bit, I found that only motherboard replacement can fix this issue.....really? What do you think? Do you any kind of solution?

To start, I have seen the thread about a high pitched noise issue with this device's fan, and I don't think my problem is the same one. I have an ongoing issue with my Yoga 3 (full specs below), where for most of the time that the fan is spinning, it makes a loud grinding noise as if there's something stuck in the fan or the blade is off balance. I've only had the laptop for six months and it wasn't a problem when I bought it - it's developed since. The fan still seems to cool the laptop properly, and I've had no warnings from the device, but it's audible in quieter rooms and definitely isn't normal. I've installed the BIOS update that was recommended for a similar fan issue, and I've used OneKey Optimiser to run the fan cleaning tool several times - nothing has changed so far. I'm not sure what to do next. Should I attempt to open the machine and clean the fan unit with compressed air/investigate further, or should I contact someone about a repair? Thanks Aaron

Hi aaroncawte , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
As what you have already described , seems that you have done what is needed fro the fan noise issue. 
Noting that the issue is mechanical in nature , please give tech support a call for the needed service . 
No need to open the chassis for further steps not to invalidate the seal / warranty and have the tech run further check.
 
You can however run Lenovo Solution Center for the hardware test just to check on other parts that can also be affected and likewise temperature check at the moment of the noise for baseline data.

Hello, I have a Lenovo Yoga 3-1470 64-bit, which was originally windows 8. After updating to windows 10, the audio (Conexant HD Audio) starts to have some problems, such as the need to keep restarting my laptop to get the audio back. Recently it has gotten worse, hence I decided to uninstall the Conexant HD Audio driver from my device manager, with the hope that I can reinstall the updated windows 10 Conexant HD Audio driver. But after uninstalling, I found out that I cannot reinstall it back. The device driver installation wizard will only install for 2 - 3%, then a messagebox ERROR will appear stating that "Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the device for this driver." I have tried installing windows 8 and 10 versions of the Conexant HD Audio Drivers, but they do not work. Currently, my audio isn't working anymore. Can anyone help me, Thank you very much.

Hi there! Need help. Obviously. Hope people still look at this fourm... I have a Lenovo Yoga 3 1470 Laptop. Its...a few years old AND it is out of warrenty (so please no recommendations for sending it into Lenovo Repair Service). It is running the Windows 10 update, though it initally came with Windows 8.1  A few days ago I factory reset the computer to wipe it of all files and such. When the reset was finished it updated and reloaded itself with Windows 10. Everything seemed fine at first... HOWEVER, the touch screen is not responding to anything. I can fold the laptop into tablet mode, the physical keyboard will shut off but it will not respond to touches by any means. The Pen & Touch information in windows settings says that Pen & Touch are not available for this device. I have checked the drivers and the HID-Compliant Driver is NOT THERE (it was at first but it was greyed out and gave me a code 45).  Tent mode also doesn't work.

After the Windows 10 April 2018 update, my Lenovo Yoga 3 14 laptop is not starting immediately. It's not boot-up delay, it's a device start-up delay like after pressing the power button, just keyboard back light blinks once and nothing will happen and it's taking 35 to 40 seconds (earlier it's 1 to 3 seconds) after pressing the power button to show Lenovo UEFI screen along with Windows loading animation (this boot-up is quick like earlier versions about 5 to 7 seconds). Re-installed the complete OS (clean install) and re-installed the BIOS (Version BACNA0WW and BIOS date 07/15/2016). But nothing helps. Changed to earlier version of windows with clean install (the one with creators update, but issue not resolved.) Formatted complete drive and cleared all partitions (including OEM) and installed on a fresh partition, re-flashed BIOS, but nothing helps. Later I thought about hardware issue. Opened laptop, removed display connector, cleaned and attached, but issue not resolved. So, it's not a new Windows issue and It might be a problem with BIOS and it needs to be updated. Since my laptop is mote than 3 years old, Lenovo probably don't bother about updating this BIOS. Any solution that I missed?Thanks in advance.

Hi we have a Yoga 3 Notebook 80JH and we are having issues starting it. If left alone for a day or so it may boot up, but due to a failed installation of Windows 10, I would like to restore to factory defaults / image. If I restart or shutdown the notebook, it will NOT power up the screen.  The keyboard backlight *may* light up but nothing appears on the screen. Plugging in an HDMI monitor, the Lenovo windows loading screen shows (spinning circles) but then even that then shows black. This appears to be a common failing with these notebooks. I have googled the issue, and followed various 'tricks' like holding power down for 20 seconds whilst the power cable is out, all to no avail.   What appears to be missing is an explanation as to what is going on. Holding the 'Novo' button down makes the notebook act as if the power button had been pushed, again only showing the lenovo loading screen for a bit on the extra HDMI monitor before showing no signal. Any ideas?

Hi,     My daughter's laptop has had no sound since a Windows 10 update back in April.  After backing out the update, I was able to get sound back by reinstalling the drivers and then the update in question.  I found it on a Windows forum for that update.  Everything was fine until the next major updaet and it started up again.  This time the troubleshooter is giving some messages I have never seen before.  This includes 2 messages that are making me think it is a registry problem.  Which is not out of the realm since it happened with Windows updates.      Included is a photo of what the troubleshooter found.      I have seen another post of no sound with the same model.  Just like hers, there is the red "x" over the speaker in the task bar.  When I right click the speaker icon the menu says "Speaker setup (UNKNOWN)", "Sounds" and "Troubleshoot sound problems".  When you hover the mouse over "Speaker setup (UNKNOWN)" it says "Off".  When you click "Sounds" sound box opens.  The playback and recording tabs both say "No audio devices are installed" and all the buttons (configure, set as default, properties and apply) are all greyed out.  When I go into device manager there is no sound devices at all.  I believe I have included everything. Thanks in advance,Dominic

I remembered exactly how much the battery is, around 50% until 60%. And I remembered that I didn't touch the f9 button, and the brightness is on the average. I don't know what to do. I thought make the battery runs out will solve it, but it didn't. I want to take off the battery and put it back, but I didn't have the tool. Pls help me guys, I'll appreciate every reply. When I was playing Mobile Legends on Bluestack, I was ready so I'm in a position to touch the screen, suddenly my screen turn blank (not black cuz it's not has any light). I was panicked, so I press the ... Read more

Hello!! I don't know much about computers, but I was using mine (just Internet basics) and it shut down completely. I started to turn it on again, light of the start button was on, sound was normal, but the screen was still totally off. I've plugged my laptop to my TV by hdmi, the computer appeared on the tv, but no wifi. It seems that the wifi is deactivate and I can't manage to activate it. Also my USB mouse doesn't work anymore.. I've tried to restore my last saving for Windows 10 that was 2 days ago, but there is no change at all.. Is anyone having an idea? Thanks!!!

I bought this machine in May 2015.  I began to have problems with it not too long after but since I was abroad I coud not send it out.  I finally sent it out in April 2016 (right before warranty ended).  They fixed some of the issues and sent it back, sadly I had to go back before I could get my laptop in May 2016.  I came back about 4 weeks ago and have been using it again since. Today as I was working on it after I plugged it in (it was at 7% battery), I noticed it only charged to 99%, it didn't show 100% like it typically does.  I didn't think anything of it and just went about my work. When I changed stations and moved upstairs I plugged it back in and noticed it is not charging at all. Tried several outlets, and tested the adapter, all is fine.  The kicker is when I unplug the adapter the laptop shuts off too, even tough I was 70% battery life.  Then it takes 10 or more seconds of holding the power button to fire it back up. I am pretty distraught over this. Would be grateful for any advice on what is going on. This machine is basically new! I have used only a handful of months and now my warranty is over! I can't afford another one or repairs

Hi everyone. I want to ask it clearly. I just bought lenovo yoga 520 and the first issue that I found is when on the startup screen and Cortana talk. When I want to reply there is no respond. I already check if the issue is on my Mic driver but I just can see that it is 'Microphone Array' which i do not understand if it need external mic or not. I tried update windows and driver, but nothing change. Is Lenovo Yoga 520 come in with internal mic ? and if it has internak mic, can someone help on driver issue or is it a hardware problem ?

Hi,So its difficult for me to pin down the problem here but I know that its not my Wi-Fi as i've had this issue at college and at various homes, cafes. I'll be browsing the internet when suddenly my thinkpad will disconnnect from the internet. Note, usually it will say that it is connected to the router but it isn't getting any connection. I will use another device at the same time that experiences no issues. When using Skype I lose calls frequently. It's dissapointing considering I dropped 1 grand on this laptop only to use my 100 dollar smartphone in many situations. Thoughts?

A:Lenovo Yoga 700 Wi-Fi Issues

Hi jreder007 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
To start with I would suggest you try to check on the wifi adapter properties .
 
On Device manager , choose the wifi card and right click for Properties , Power management to uncheck on Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power .
Advance tab would also show Roaming tendency / aggressiveness that you can move to highest.
See if that would would , else you may proceed with uninstall and reinstallling your WIFI driver downloadable from the support site .
Update us how it works for you .
 
 
Regards

Hi,My latest issue with Yoga 720 15" GTX, i7, 16gb that I can't resolve is the lost network adapter. As I was playing with photoshop blue screen popped out with some barcode and by the time I get to take a picture and the laptop shut down.I downloaded network drivers from the website, and tried them both because I didn't know which one si for my laptop, and then tried system restore, but it still didn't fix the problem. When I ran Lenovo's system diagnostics it states all the hardware is fine. Here is why I will never gonna buy LENOVO again.First with my purchase last Friday i tried to apply Gropon coupon for discount, but nothing happened, so I paid the full price.Then I expected it to be shipped on Saturday, but they shipped it on Monday.Once I received it I found the pen is not working properly and even when I try to use heavy hand sometimes it just does not work.Sometimes touchpad scroll does not work.Another think is that the screen flicker with mozilla, and with chrome is even worst and it is showing black screen sometimes.I did all the updates, I haven't changed any settings and this is it! Good think I have another HP Lapotop to keep me working.  All that happend in about two days since I have it, I don't really know what to expect next if I don't get to return it.
