Can you be a little clearer with your issue. From what I can gather, you're having problems with the brightness of your screen f right? Most issues like yours can be fixed/managed in settings menu. Go to display and find the brightness that suits you. Hope this helps. This is the best I could come up with based on how you asked your question.

Hi Everyone, I found 2 air bubbles in the top right corner of my Y700-15ISK's screen.First I thought that it was under the screen protecting foil but it rather seems to be under the glass.I have never seen such faulty display before. The problem occured on the very last day of the warranty period but I could file the claim only today, 2 weeks later when I realized that more bubbles appeared, now there 10 air bubbles.Now I wait for feedback from Lenovo. Is there anyone with such issue? (air bubbles in the screen, no touch display) Best regards, Jozsef

So I bought this new laptop two weeks ago and now I've had 3 times this same blue screen error. It comes totally without warning, supposedly the reason is the Intel HD Graphics 530's driver which I am going to now clean install totally as it gives me this warning that the software hasn't been confirmed by the manufacturer or some crap. Really expected a lot more from Lenovo, this is now my 2nd laptop from them after I succesfully used up the last one (the power port started disconnecting, I guess too much damage from movement). I hope that this will fix it but otherwise I'm going to return this and buy some other product which works out of the box. Really outrageous that the product is defected by default. I expected more Lenovo, I expected more...

I recently bought this laptop and I have two problems:1. Especially when the screen is black, there is a green light on the upper part of the screen. I don't know what causes it maybe a led or something is installed badly (it's a 5 cm² area). Should I take it back and ask for a new one?2. This problem is related to scaling. When it is set to 100%, everything is small but crystal clear. When at 150%, everything looks normal but some apps like Steam, BitTorrent... are blurry like they were just zoomed on. Reinstalling windows and drivers should solve this? Simply reinstalling drivers didn't help.Thanks!

A:Lenovo Y700-15ISK screen issues

I don't know anything about your first problem (it may be a hardware problem), but I do know something about the second. Some programs (Steam, for example) aren't made for high-dpi screens. for these programs that appear blurry, right click on their icon (on the desktop), and click properties. Under the compatibility tab, check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". This should work after you restart the program.

I was going on a train, so i turned off my laptop to get it in my backpack. When i tried to boot it in the train, the screen was not turning on. It stayed like that. I've tried many things (battery drain, bios update and else) but it just doesn't work. I can plug in an external monitor an it is just fine. I'm just reminding you that the screen is OFF, it doesn't show anything through the bootup and in the windows. The external monitor is considered as a main one, and i can go to bios through it. I really don't know what happened, and i couldn't find any way to fix it in the internet. So i ask, do you know the problem ? If yes, then can i do something besides just sending it to service ? It looks like my warranty worn out january this year.

I thought they were mostly glossy but I saw this video on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOmVjyZazGo which seemed to show a newer model with a matte screen. And there aren't any websites that show you the type of finish.

A:Y700-15ISK matte or glossy screen?

sgcyrus wrote:I wanted to know if the screen was matte or the glossy version covered with the anti-glare coating.I think that this may vary from one country to another.  I have an Ideapad 500-15ISK that has a glossy screen, but I read a review online from a European reviewer, and his version had a matte screen. There are many different combinations of components that the manufacturer can use for each model.  But the Lenovo importer in each country won't stock every possible combination.  Instead, the marketing staff in each country will spec two or three models that they think will sell best in their country, and that is all that the importer will stock.  So some countries may sell versions with glossy screens, while others sell versions with matte screens. Look at the detailed specs for the model that you are thinking of purchasing, and (if possible) try to view it at your local retailer (which is what I did, so I was not surprised by the presence of a glossy screen). -- from CyberSimian in the UK

All drivers are up to date, I have not updated the BIOS yet though. Questions:I.Has anyone had the same issue? Is this common or just my particular device is bad? II.What could be the possible cause of this? Could this be caused by the semi-matte film? So, if I removed the film, would this problem disappear? If anyone has had the same issue and solved it by removing the film, I would love to hear from it.Or is this rather a backlight issue, meaning that the screen or its electronics has to be replaced/fixed in the repair center? (I did not expect this to happen to a brand new product anyway.) Thank you for your help in advance!Andras

I bought my Y700-15ISK on 24/06/16 and within an hour or so of use the screen went black and the computer didn't seem to respond to anything (except toggling the keyboard backlight with Fn-space). The computer itself did not shut down as indicated by the keyboard lights. This kept repeating itself several times at seemingly random intervals and the computer would only return to normal after a hard shut down by holding the power button and power back up again. I've seen several other complaints on the forums regarding this problem, one of which was tagged as solved and contained a broken link to Lenovo's solution. The following link was found elsewhere and seems to refer to the same problem: https://support.lenovo.com/il/en/documents/SF16-I0012 Though here the link for the BIOS update is broken (which is version 30 anyway, and the one on my computer is 34). Later I found a page on Lenovo's site cached by Google (original is dead) containing update 35 for this model's BIOS but it doesn't seem to install correctly and I still have version 34. I've also seen talk of update 35 causing trouble for other users. I've updated all relevant drivers as well and the computer is not heating up, running the fans loudly or acting strangely otherwise when this issue occurs. I have sent a message to Lenovo but will probably only get a response after the weekend. As far as I can piece together they might have released a bad update to counteract this and have taken it do... Read more

Back in September, I purchased a Y700-15ISK laptop, and up until about ten days ago I had no problems with it whatsoever. However, that changed when the screen started flickering intermittently. Initially, I wasn't too concerned, but when I turned my laptop on the following day, the problem became a lot more extreme. On this occassion, the screen flickered so wildly during the boot-up process, that I had great difficulty logging in. It was only after I'd rebooted my laptop several times, that it became stable enough to use normally. Over the next few days, the flickering became less frequent, but instead I started experiencing graphical glitching in the form of jagged little white lines which seemed to be triggered mainly by dark colours. Since then, I've had another awful session where the flickering has made my laptop unusable, and a couple more sessions where I've mainly been affected by the glitching. I regularly experience the glitching whilst the Lenovo logo is displayed during the boot-up process, and when I access the BIOS, so I assume I'm dealing with a hardware problem as opposed to a Windows 10 problem. Nevertheless, I did update my drivers, but this made no difference. The one thing I haven't tried is updating my BIOS. I'm still on CDCN28WW, but I'm aware that the latest version is CDCN52WW. The reason I'm hesitant to update is because the problems are usually at their worst when I boot-up or reboot ... Read more

I got this laptop from Lenovo.com a month back and this is the second time it had creashed saying a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION out oif nowhere. It's not that I have made this machine run at high loads either, it's just been regular light loads of photoshop and browsing and I thought I could use this $1300 machine for modelling and all. Truly disappointed with this kind of service after my first Thinkpad lasted for 6 years. I do have an extended waranty with accidental protection but I certainly hope that this issue can be fixed before I have to invoke it, since there is a hell lot of work I intend to complete before my graduation in the next few months. Hope the service people from Lenovo are there to help out.Thank you for your support, which I expect would not be as worse as this product.

Yes, there is something wrong with this model. A lot of other people have had the same issue where the laptop will no longer boot after a long sleep or shutdown. There is a BIOS update that is being released sometime by the end of the month to fix this issue. I do not know if Lenovo has a USB flash function, but if they don't you should probably exchange for another or wait for the BIOS update, so that you can flash the new BIOS as soon as you get the replacement.

Just ran a calibration of the display using Calman RGB last night and have to say that I am a little disappointed.  The grayscale calibration worked well and I ended up with under .5% error but the color was way off out of the box and for some reason the Calman software could not make any significant improvement to the primary and seconday colors.  Initial color error was almost 9%... a very noticable flaw in color reproduction.  Calman did manage to improve other color points to get the overall color error to about 3% but, if just measuring the primaries and secondaries, the error appears to be in the 7% to 8% range. Curious if anyone else has tried calibrating their Y700 and managed to achieve better results ? Also curious what others think about the mod to remove the anti-glare film ?  I don't like it.  It actually creates a haze under direct sunlight.  And I wonder if the anti-glare film is messing with the color.

The antiglare really does impact clarity. I'm not sure if colors are affected by it, but reason seams to think yes to some extent.

Evening. I have purchased the Lenovo Y700-15ISK and having installed CS GO I am experiencing FPS spikes every 5-10 minutes of gameplay. At first I believed it was down to the GPU temperature reaching the throttle limit of 67 degrees but after further tests I have played for 1 hour+ and the temperature has not gone above 60 degrees. These spikes happen as soon as I enter the game even if the laptop has only just been turned on so I don't believe it is temperature related. I have the max processor state at 99% to eliminate turbo and it does not make any difference if I have the graphics settings on high or low. Any ideas or help would be appreciated as I seem to have hit a brick wall. Thanks in advance. Chris Keegan.

Hi there, Chrisk ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
If the laptop is running on the battery, you will always be facing this problem. You have to run the games while using the power cord.
 
Plug in the AC adapter and set the power settings to high performance
 
Open the power options > change plan settings > change advance power settings and ensure the Link State Power Management is Off and Maximum Processor State is set to 100%.
Download & install GPU Shark (GPU Monitoring Tool) - you should see the GPU clock ~800Mhz+.
Download and install CoreTemp - you should see the CPU clock ~3Ghz+(turbo boost)
 
Also, This could be caused by the nvidia Optimus software. To fix it, simply go into your Nvidia Control Panel >>> Program Settings >>> Select a Program, and switch it to High Performance Nvidia Processor.
Done
 
Update us how it goes.
