Q: 310 15ikb - Problem resetting my laptop

Hey guys,
I have a Lenovo ideapad 310 15ikb and recently I've resetted my windows that came pre-installed with the laptop (windows 10) from setting menu, and then I decided that I want to install another version of Windows on my laptop so I partitioned my hdd (without formatting anything) and installed windows 10 on the new partition, today I decided that I want to reset the windows that came pre-installed and I went to settings-update and recovery- reset the pc but it tells me that I should insert a disk, so I tried using OneKey recovery I opened the OKR and selected reset and it says that it needs to restart I pressed OK it restarted but it restarted into the windows itself not into the recovery menu, I triee Nova button but same result it boots up to Windows directly
So how can I fix this problem?
Thank you

Preferred Solution: 310 15ikb - Problem resetting my laptop

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 MRDKThanks for using the Lenovo forums.Sounds like something has happened to the recovery partition.
Possibly became corrupted.

You could try and create your own recovery:
https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht117511

See if that is able to help restore it.

But if you want to reset it, it may be wort to simply format it all after saving your files that you need and reinstall from fresh, it would save you some hassle later on.

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

I have a Acer V3-551-8469 that I got semi new. Right from the start when I turned it on it wouldn't work right. It would start up with the Acer screen, then just go black. To actually see the desktop I had to sleep the computer and then wake it up. I then tried to refresh the PC but that did not fix anything so through the PC settings I selected to do full restore and erase everything. I did that and it shutdown and has just been sitting at a black screen for around 2 hours. The hard drive light is blinking. Im not sure what to do or if I should just wait it out.

Hi
i hope im posting in the right bit but i have just reset my Asus laptop back to the factory settings as windows explorer kept randomly shutting down. My laptop is only a month old so i just reset as i didn't have much stored anyway. I now only have one hard drive instead of 2. There was C and D but D has gone and it looks like C now has more storage. Is there anyway to get D back?
Also, how do i know what i need running at start up? My laptop is slow to start but there are a few programs running at start up.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated .
 

A:Problem after resetting laptop

How did you reset it? The D: partition was probably the recovery partition, so it doesn't make sense that it would be gone after doing a factory restore.

Or it may just be hidden. Open Disk Management, and check to see if there's a partition without a drive letter assigned.

This is my first thread here.
 
I have got Ideapad 310 15ikb I5 1TB and 4GB RAM. 
 
Before this I have Intel 4440 (6MB cache and 16GB RAM) which I used for Visual Studio , MySQL and other programming work.
 
Going back to 4GB RAM is not looking good to me. For first 2 days I have this PC I only update update and update now it's working but it's stop me for 2-3 seconds I take one action.
 
I am looking for update RAM. Please help me.  Can I open it myself and put RAM on it. (Like I easily does same in desktop without void warranty)
 
and I am looking for using SSD on my PC. I have Lenovo recovery in my laptop and I don't want to loose it. I am thinking to get 256 GB SSD. Is that possible to setup this (all parition) to SSD. or better I looking for ISO which I can install on my SSD once I install it.
 
So My question is I want to upgrade RAM and HDD both. Plese let me know about both options,
 
Thanks in advanced.

Hello friends,I bought a Lenovo notebook a couple of days ago and installed a Sandisk SSD replacing the original 1 TB Western Digital harddisk. I installed Windows 10 and then from the Lenovo webpage i installed the required drivers etc. And with the first restart the system did not boot and poped out a epairing disc notification. But no matter what i tried disc was not repaired.Anyway i reinstalled windows 10 and after installing the drivers once again the same thing happened. I suspect intel rapid storage drivers are causing this. But have not done any trial and error attempt yet. Any of you faced such an issue ? Thank you

I have Sketchup Pro 2017 installed on my Yoga 720 laptop at work.  On paper it seems like this computer should be more powerful than the machine its replacing, but its performance in Sketchup is really slow.  It makes the program really difficult to use because its freezing and lagging so much.  I've run a quick diagnostic on the machine and it passed.  I also have run Sketchup with the task manager window open and it seems to be using about 35-45% of the memory while its running.  Is it a graphics card issue?  My collegue ran one of the same files I've been working on and it worked fine and her machine is in theory less powerful.  She is using Windows 7 however.  Could it be an operating system issue?  Any other ideas?

Hello all--am seriously considering returning this laptop---if this cannot be resolved.  Just bought thiis laptop about a month ago.  Doesn't matter which browser I use, but within 15-20 min online it starts to flicker violently (the word that comes to mind), and also today started blacking out.  It only does this when I am online, and it doesn't matter which site I am on.  It happens with all browsers, but with IE it starts almost within minutes of going online.  I am forced to shut the browser down. I've tried the Lenovo suggested Task Manager check---but I have not downloaded any apps that might be interfering.  Literally, this laptop is brand new! I've not installed anything. I don't want to remove the battery...I shouldn't have to do all this stuff to a brand new machine. It's frustrating since I got this specifically to do online things---work, design, surf, etc. I've searched hte knowledge base and the community and cannot see anything similar except for Tablets. Any ideas anyone?  TIA, Diane

So i have been using my new 720S-15IKB Laptop (ideapad) for a while now. Got it in late Jan 2018. Its  perfect in everyway except the touchpad which is driving me bonker! I believe Its running on native   windows precision driver.  So, every now and then the touchpad slows down as if when someone just reduced the pointer  speed and then after a while it fixes itself. Sounds more like dynamic touchpad DPI in play .Have no idea if certain driver or setting is causing  this inconsistent behaviour.  Please let me know if you fixed this by yourself or know of any registry tweaks that might help. I willing to try anytthing at this point. btw this is my replacement unit. The original unit had the exact same issue as well. So i don't think this is strictly faulty touchpad.

I am working on a laptop for a friends grand daughter. I had to replace the screen. Here is where my problem begins. The grand daughter can only remember 1 password and that's not the right one. I figured I could do a reset which I understand will take it back to when it was purchased (out of box). I can then create an Admin account for grandma and a user account for the grand daughter.

Can you do a reset without logging in with Admin privileges? If not I guess my only other option is to do a clean install 8, right?

I have moved your inquiry to the appropriate section in the HP forums.   It might gain a reply  if you could explain your defintion of "Tpm".  Additional help would be offered if you could mention the model # of this unit. As a sidebar, I would invite you to inquire then about a WIN 7 upgrade because browers for Vista are limited.  IE9 stopped at version 9.  It seems Opera still supports it.

By resetting do you mean the the recovery process keeps activating?
Does the F10 key seem ok or is it stuck in a depressed state.
Spybot will remove most spyware but does not remove viruses.

Someone tried to download Photoshop on my laptop but the laptop had very little space to do that which meant I couldn't even put pictures on it or make and save documents even though there were none on it. It made it very slow and faulty so I decided to remove Photoshop from the laptop. However, it still said there wasn't enough space and a lot of Photoshop programmes were still on the laptop so the laptop suggested other programs that I could remove and the laptop would be okay. Except it kind of made things worst so I decided the best thing to do was  reset the laptop back to it's basic settings as though it was new. But everytime it reaches about 54%, it tells me it cannot reset. And now it won't even load the sign in page. So I have a new laptop that glitches and keeps showing the loading page over and over again moments after I turn it on. Is there any other way to reset the laptop? I have tried everything avaliable on screen when I press F11. I don't know what else to do. Thank you!

Hello all!
I have a problem with my laptop. It keeps "resetting".
It pops up a window that says "This program is no longer requiering attention. The message might have been one that required no action such as quick status notifiction. Windows will notify you if the problem reappears". It appears after every minute or so. It's majorly annoying when I have something on the full screen as it makes the window go back to the taskbar.
It started happening after I played a game on full screen and often exited the game, leaving it on the taskbar.
I thought it might be a virus so I ran an anti-virus program. It didn't make a difference.
Help!

I bought new V310-15IKB Laptop and I've been using it for three days. Today I turned it on like always (the battery was fully charged the day before, so without the charger connected to it) and a windows update popped out. But at the same time at the screen there was some weird message (I made a photo) So I clicked Enter and it turned on. I saw that the battery is 97% and connected the charger, but it wasn't charging at all to my surprise (it's written 'connected, not charging'). I reset the laptop and problem is still the same. When I disconnect the charger the battery is running lower (from 97% to 95% and so on), when I connect it it's not charging. It's a huge problem for me, I need laptop to work, so I asked my friend to help, but he checked the saving energy thing in lenovo companion and it's turned off, we have no idea why this problem with battery exists. I need my laptop for work, if I can't get it fixed in a few days I have to go to the shop and return the laptop and buy something else instead. I really like it, don't want to do that, anyone can help me with my problem? And sorry but English is not my first language, I tried to translate everything the best I could.
