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,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?

Hi,I recently bought a lenovo y540 with 256 gb intel ssd and 1TB HDD. It came with dos system what I wanted to change to windows.I tried to install from usb but iduring the installation process where I can choose the drive it doesnt see the ssd at all. I installed on the HDD and after that initialized the ssd but still no success. I migrated the OS with minitool to the SSD but it doesnt seems like to be as fast as expected. I tried to reinstall the os but still doesnt see the SSD although it has a windows on it.AHCI is on, BIOS and Windows disk management sees the ssd, but the windows installer dont. Tried legacy and UEFI both.USB installer made with rufus fat32 gpt.

Hi,I'd just bought a Y540 notebook.I'm quite happy about performance but keys "AvPag", "RevPag" don't work: they just move one line when pushed.Seems key "Fn" must be combined for AvPag works.Is this OK or is it a malfunction?Thanks in advance.

Hello, I purchased a Lenovo Y540 recently with SSD. I have a 1 TB HDD  spare and I want to install it next to the SSD. Im not sure about the warranty. Can I add the HDD myself without voiding the warranty or I need to contact a local shop to do it. My warranty is 2 year basic warranty. I'm located in EU Hungary (purchased in Hungary). The same question goes to RAM upgrade.

Tested on Lenovo 540, my phone and monitor as laptop 2d screen. Images: F0013 color red, Apex legends(season 4) banner and Revenant art. Before this post, I: changed color profiles, used the Nvidia control panel. Still, the red color on these images has an orange tint to it. The rest of the colors is perfectly fine. My question. Can i fix this somehow, and can I get a refund or exchange for this laptop. I`m studying as graphic design and this is a real problem for me (my 2d monitor is not available outdoors, so it's not a total fix). Thank you for replies.

Earlier this week I stood up while holding my Y540.  The power brick, which is quite heavy, fell off the desk and ripped the power cord out of the DC-IN power jack.  The plastic clips that hold the power cord in place were destroyed, and now I can't get a stable power connection anymore. I'd like to replace the DC-IN power jack on the motherboard.  The problem is I can't seem to find the part anywhere.  Lenovo won't sell it to me (it's an FRU only part) and I can't find anywhere online that sells an 81Q4 power jack. Does anyone know if there are other compatible DC power jacks I could use for my Y540?  I'm quite comfortable replacing parts on a system board, I only need to find the appropriate part.   Thanks for any help you can provide.

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.

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 All I have Lenovo G50 80 laptop; it?s a full 15.6 inch laptop with DVD drive, full keyboard, touch pad. Last year i started having problem with laptop, as touchpad stopped working the arrow cursor got stuck on screen, and will only work again if i press any key on keyboard. It will only work for few seconds and minutes then again stuck. Also the arrow or delete key stayed in loop, whenever i open anything to type, the cursor in text field kept moving to left or keep deleting the text. The service center guy told me that it is due to Keyboard and touchpad getting short due to moisture or something, they changed the keyboard. Now after one year again i am facing same problem. Same thing happening again and again. It?s very irritating. It seems there is some hardware or design fault in the way Lenovo has designed their keyboard and touchpad. I live in Mumbai, so may be due to monsoon there is moisture in air and it may be affecting this design. But again i have never seen this issue in any other laptop brands of competitor. Can anyone please help me how can i fix this on my own, as laptop is not under warranty and i don?t want to keep changing laptop every year. May be someone with hardware repair knowledge can help me here. Can I short or cut or sholder any cables, any circuit, I don?t know just help me guys to fix this. Anyone from Lenovo listening please have a look it a big problem. Thanks

Hi! I've got Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Silver (https://www.alza.cz/EN/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-13-silver-d375124.htm), and while I am quite content with the device, my keyboard stopped working. I was wondering whether any of you might know and suggest an online reseller (official or otherwise), where I could get hold of a replacement keyboard. Now, I suppose backlit keyboard versions of newer Yoga laptops will not work I guess, will they? From what I have read Yoga 13 Silver does not have the slot required for backlit, but aside that, will the keyboard function and will it fit (dimension-wise)? If so, what is the voltage and current required? Would soldering a small battery to the backlit cable be a good idea (I accept the fact that I wouldn't be able to regulate it)? Thank you in advance!ck

Hey there, I found a similar topic but unfortunately, there was not a final response that solved my problem. I own a Yoga 13 Ideapad without the backlight function, unfortunately. Recently I watched a video of a keyboard replacement and I would like to do that with mine in order to replace it with a backlight keyboard. The problem is that I am not sure if my model features the needed connections. The model number is: 219159342273 if that helps.  I found backlight keyboards described as "original" Lenovo parts for about 30?. Is that realistic or fake?Thank you for your help!!!

Hey guys!

I recently got a Casio keyboard, with a new MIDI cable.

I'm a music artist and I'm totally new with this 'keyboard-to-computer-via-MIDI' stuff.

I don't know how to connect my Casio Keyboard to my computer with a MIDI cable. I've mostly been using Mixcraft's music library, but I want to start something new with my new keyboard.

Can someone PLEASE tell me how I can connect my keyboard to my laptop via MIDI?

I've looked at other forum posts and contacted a few music artists..........they had nothing.

Please help!

Thanks!
