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 everybody! I have a Lenovo 510S. The keyboard touchpad does not click at first; meaning the mouse cannot be moved on the first touch if I use the keyboard. It works on the second touch. I understood the issue has been solved for a different type of laptop by changing the window registry (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-B-and-G-Series-Notebooks/Lenovo-G500-touchpad-no-click-first/td-...). However, I don't know which registry should be changed here for my 510S. Could you help me out here? Thanks a lot!

Hi, I've recently bought a 510s-14ISK, and am regularly getting timeout errors when browsing the web. Seems to mainly be when something is being streamed or downloaded i.e. Spotify. Spotify continues to work fine, but all websites will timeout, then refresh and (mostly) load up as expected. Any one else having the same issues? I've already exchanged the device for a new one and it's happening on both. Happens in all browsers. Doesn't happen on other devices on the network, so must be something wrong with the device.  Have tried https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht502846 to no avail, and the two emails I've had with support about installing new wireless and chipset drivers haven't helped either, and the Lenovo Solutions Centre hardware scan doesn't report any issues.

There have been some security problems with this machine, and I would like to rewrite the bios.  As it happens it also needs to be updated anyway.I can open the self extracing .exe file, 0vcn29ww.exe, and it gives me a directory structure.  But what do I do with it?   I've tried running this .exe file in wine.  I get a dialog with a button to continue.  I push that then it crashes with a "string too long" error.  I've read on some forums that one should make a bootable USB, but with what image?Ah so how does one do a bios update for a 510S-14ISK that is running Linux?

I am experiencing strange mouse pointer behaviour after my laptop has been running for a while and a program is working in the background. The mouse pointer is displayed in a very low resolution, while jumping up to another part of the screen. So usually, the mouse cursor looks like this:  But when the problem occurs, it looks like this (and jumps up to another part of the screen):  As mentioned, the problem only occurs after my laptop has been running for a while (this may take a day, but sometimes only an hour) but when it does, it keeps occuring untill I restart. This has been happening since I bought the system about two months ago. System: Lenovo ideapad 510S14ISKOperating system: Windows 10 I already tried:- updating my drivers (using Lenovo Companion)- reinstalling windows (while keeping my files)- uninstalling Lenovo System Interface Foundation as recommended here- unchecking the box "enhance pointer precision", also as recommended here The problem occurs both with my external mouse plugged in and plugged off. Any ideas what might be causing this problem? 

A:Strange mouse pointer behaviour when working in background - Lenovo Ideapad 510S 14ISK

Maybe related to this issue, maybe not: I also noticed a strange resolution in a few other places. For example, in the image below you can see that the text in the left box is displayed much sharper than that in the right box.  This occurs also after my laptop has just restarted and is of course much less anoying. Nonetheless, I thought it would be interesting to mention as the two issues might be related.

The left click and right click buttons on the laptop are not responding. The actual mouse pad is working and I'm able to move the pointer/cursor.

It is a Thinkpad t420s, running on Windows 10. This started happening after a windows update was performed.

I had planned to downgrade to windows 8.1 anyway so I went ahead and did that, thinking all issues would be resolved. They were not. The drivers are installed and says that they are working properly... but the problem still persists. Keep in mind that I do connect an external mouse and it works fine.

Please advise.

Turned my laptop on after being on holiday for 2 weeks was working fine then all of a sudden left click stopped working and double tap on the touch pad stopped working i can move the mouse with the touch pad and i can use right click but double tap and left click will just not work.

Tried system restore 3 times without victory, i then backed everything up and formatted my laptop also restoring the bios to default settings just incase something decided to change on its own.

Ive uninstalled and re installed the touch pad drivers with no victory also so now i am absolutly baffled on to why these few features arnt working so im presuming something is stopping them because if the touch pad was broken i would presume the right click and touch pad would stop completly also.

Incorrect assumption, stuff partially breaks all the time. The left click button/sensor is separate from the right click or the touchpad even though they are part of the same bigger component. If you've done a format & resinstall that would rule out software and point at a hardware failure. You can likely buy a new touchpad on ebay for fairly cheap.

I have a customer that has a Dell XPS 14z, randomly the left mouse click stops working on the touch pad. Right mouse click and the actual touch pad itself works fine. If you plug in a USB mouse the left click works fine on the USB mouse, however the left click on the touch pad continues to not work.
Below are the following actions I have taken however they hasn't resolved the issue.

I have gone into control panel > mouse settings > Synaptics tab > set to default.
I have downloaded and installed the latest driver on the Dell website which is version: V16.1.6 ,A01 (http://www.dell.com/support/home/uk/en/ukdhs1/product-support/product/xps-l412z/drivers?rvps=y)
I have tried to set the mouse settings to left handed and back to right handed.
I have checked device manager and event viewer and both report no issues with the touch pad drivers failing.

What is strange is that once you restart the laptop left click starts working again, however it will stop randomly and by randomly, I mean that it could stop working 3 weeks from now or 2 days from now.
I don't think it is hardware because if it was I would have thought that the button wouldn't start working after every restart.
So any thoughts or solutions would be grateful.

I'm being trying to figure out some funny mouse happenings to see what program might be causing the problem.
Sometimes when I attempt to select several words in a sentence the high lite stops during the drag operation and thhe edit box appears. I might try this several times before it finally works correctly. Other times the edit box appears when I select a Bookmark in FireFox. I just now hit Enter and the FF file menu box appeared.
What could be causing this? Is it something that I checked by mistake?

Check to see if you have Sticky Keys turned on. Sometimes if your ALT key is down, you may be actually doing other commands.

I have an Acer T272HUL touch screen and use it with my Protools Audio Recording Rig. I use windows 7-64 exclusively. Recently the left mouse click just stop working (both single and double). At first it happened on my laptop HP 8560W, it was already a few years so I decided to buy a new faster machine and went for the HP Z240 T model as they are certified by AVID. Just finished installing all SW from scratch but still the same issue occur; When I connect the touch USB cable, the mouse clicks just stop working. A reboot without the touch cable and all is fine. (The touch itself works brilliantly in all respects.) Tried all possible variants of usb 2/3 ports, changed to different mices (usb/ps2) Also tried to Google the problem intensivly, but nothing on this subject in particular.

Hi -  I hope someone can help to identify what the issue is here, please? Bought a 510s-14 laptop back in June and and been using it fine until a few weeks back. When using the browser (Google Chrome), these 'squares' as can be seen from the photos below come up on the screen. I then have to shut the browser down and open it up again and it seems fine until it randomly happens again the same day or two days later. There is no pattern and I'm not doing anything in particular when it happens. Run the Lenovo diagnostic tool, which found nothing and everything is upto date on the machine. Any ideas, please?

That may be a glitch in Chrome from a few years back resurfacing that involved using the GPU for its 2D Canvas rendering, which is enabled by default. The first thing I would do is go to https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/hu/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/500-series/510s-14isk/80tk/download..., and install the latest "display drivers and Video Graphics" drivers for your system if not already installed, because updated drivers may resolve the problem.  If not, you can open Chrome, and in the address bar type or paste:  chrome://flags/   which will open a page with some of Chrome's experimental features, locate Accelerated 2D canvas (should be 3rd one down) and click the Disable button below it. Best of luck,

When I try to open one of My Folders (One that I added to my desktop with application I added to it) with a double left click a search results window opens instead of the folder opening and displaying the contents of the folder with things I've put into it.
If I right click on one of my folders and go down and left click on open the folder will open and the contents displayed as I expect (The first opetion displayed is a search after I right click).
Any other folder including My Documnets folder will open the folder and display the contents correctly.

At one time it used to work correcly and its not a major issue but I would sure like it fixed > Any ideas?

Hi Mperal , 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
You can follow the initial power check out guideline (page 21-22) from the hardware manual initially.
Checking probable point of failure such as adapter functionality we hope that a spare one would charge up the battery while the laptop is turned off. Battery indicators should indicate change in status after 1-2 hours being plugged in. 
Here is the official service center locator but you may consult with other repair center to verify the cause until you can get back to your location where your inwarranty service would be available.
Update us how things go.
