Lenovo Flex 3-1130 Booting Problems

Q: Lenovo Flex 3-1130 Booting Problems

First thing I did was download a Windows 10 boot file onto a USB. I go through Repair Your Computer and all that until I get to trouble shooting. When I go to command prompt, right after i type in "Bootrec /rebuildbcd" and I type A (for all), it tells me "The requested system device cannot be found."
I've tried looking up help but I can't find any answers that help me. :/ What am I doing wrong?

Greetings,I was getting one of these as a gift but noticed they only have 2GB of memory while running Windows 10 64-bit. The specs say they have 2GB of DDR3L-1333 memory so is it safe to assume this can be expanded?  The sales person at the local electronics place said it was as there are also 4GB models of the same but those do not have the SSD drive (i.e. 4GB memory + 500GB slow 5400 HD vs. the 2GB memory  + 32GB SSD). Thanks!

Unfortunately no on the upgrade.  The Flex 3 has the memory soldered directly to the motherboard so it is not upgradable.  Sorry !

A:Memory Upgrade on Flex 3 1130

Lenovo's PSREF lists a eMMC storage, which isn't the Crucial one you're linking me too. You should open your comptuer to see if your computer fits an eMMC or a 2.5 internal, but I'm thinking an 11 inch form factor would only fit eMMC.  Here's Lenovo's training video that'll help: https://www.lenovoservicetraining.com/showcase?sid=663&key=TGVuZw==

I have a Flex 3-1130 (model 80LY) with 4GB ram running Windows 10 x64.  The systems is so slow as to be unusuable. Incredibly frustrating.  I've spent the last few days fiddling with windows settings, upgrading drivers, bios etc but haven't made any real progress.  So here's what I think might be going on.  I'm hoping someone else has encountered this issue and can point me in a usefule direction :-) As reported by task manager, the CPU usage is nearly always pegged to 100% and often the disk usuage is nearly 100% as well.  In addition, the memory available to the system is reported to be ~2.1GB.  I believe the issue is that the Intel onboard graphics allocates 1.9GB of the 4GB ram.  The Intel graphics utility does not seem to allow me to reduce the RAM allocated to graphics or to reduce the bit-depth of the display (which is pegged to 32 bits).  Has anyone figured out how to address this issue?Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks, Arnold

I am writing to see if anyone know if one can upgrade memory on the Flex 3. I have seen others on this forum, and elsewhere, also wondering if memory upgrades are available for the Flex 3 1130. I currently have 4 gb installed, and it says max it can take is 8. My system is the one with the 500gb harddrive (slower) on it. Answers in this forum have all said that the memory is soldered on, and that it can't be upgraded. However, I have seen several YouTube videos that show taking off the back of this model shows the RAM under a taped down cover, and it simply pops out and can be replaced a 8gb RAM. Before I order the RAM and open this thing up, does anyone know definitely what models this is possible with. Any help is much appreciated!

 My Flex 3-1130 notebook suffered an unfortunate liquid spell on the screen and is now unusable. I got a new LED screen but I'm only now realizing that the screen can't simply be replaced. There seem to be no screws to remove the actual LED and it appears stuck to the front panel. Any solutions around this problem? Does this mean that I have to replace the entire front panel? From the prices I have seen, this costs more than I paid for the actual laptop!

I'm using a Flex 3-1130.  It's a 2 in 1 netbook with a 360 degree hinge.  Does anyone know (or know where I can find) the sensor signal that tells the OS what position the lid is in?  In Windows 10, the netbook goes to sleep when the lid is closed, it wakes up in laptop mode when it's opened and it switches to tablet mode (turning off the keyboard) when the lid passes 180 degrees.  When the machine is running Linux, opening the lid past 180 doesn't turn off the keyboard and closing it all the way doesn't change the lid state to "off", so I know it's not a simple hardware switch.  What signal/memory address/whatever can I examine to see what position the lid is in?

I turned my Lenovo laptop on Friday to see the usual splash Lenovo on start up and then nothing else happened it kept continually doing that and going no further. Just so you know my laptop has no warranty left as I got it last Christmas second hand. I have been looking at demonstration videos on you tube and what I have tried so far is. I plugged in an external usb keyboard and got into bios and checked it was detecting my hard drive and it was. The next step I did was disconnect internal power/ battery and did the hold of the power button for 30 seconds to 1 minute  with the power cord connected only. And it was still doing the same. I then got advised to remove the cmos battery turn on laptop and then back off and put the battery back in. This has also failed to work so now I am looking for help here as I don't know what to do next and am hoping someone here has a different suggestion for me to try and hopefully get my laptop back up and running. Thank you in advance for any help given.

I downgraded a Flex 3-1130 from Windows 10 to Windows 7 32 bit. I was able to get all the devices working except the touch screen. It worked in Win10, but cant get it going in Win7. There are zero 32 bit Win7 drivers on the support page for this product, I had to get each and every device working by searching the internet, a tiresome task. In the device manager, there are no HID pointing devices to enable. I tried installing the touch pack for windows 7 from Microsoft, and it failed, and tells me that I need a computer with a touch screen. There are however (3) unknown devices in the device manager, all with the same hardware ID.... ACPI\808622C1 When I search google for the hardware ID above I get that this ID may be associated with Intel(R) Serial IO I2C ES Controller driver, however when I look that up, it seems the closest thing to that is the Intel® Processor I/O Controller Driver for Windows 7. When I install that, it does not do the trick. I also use the unhide feature in device manager, and there are no HID pointing devices. I dont think it is a BIOS issue, because the touch screen works in Windows 10. I also tried the intel driver update utility and some driver support software, nothing found it. Nor did windows update. I would appreciate any ideas how I can get this working.

Hello, My parents have owned a Lenovo laptop for a couple of years now. However, recently this issue showed up and I wondered whether there is a chance there is a solution to this problem which I could try myself, since the laptop its warranty already expired. If I recall correctly, the model of the laptop is the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2, running Windows 10. So here is the issue; the laptop has issues turning on. Oddly enough, it is not a very consistent issue. Eventually, the laptop does turn on. The problem is that this sometimes takes hours, other times the laptop appears to be able to boot instantly as it normally would. I have no idea what affects this. When pressing the power button, the keyboard backlight starts flashing. It does this until the laptop completely boots, and as I said, the amount of time this takes varies. I already tried looking for solutions on different forums, but they usually concern the issue where the keyboard backlight flashed and the laptop simply will not boot at all, which is not the case here, as it eventually does but often it takes a while.Other solutions suggested a certain amount of flashes meant a certain issue or failure. Problem here is that the amount of flashes seem to be random, so it is not as if it just keeps looping a certain amount of flashes as it varies. This leaves me puzzled as to what could be the culprit. I am not sure what to do, especially since I have not owned a Windows-based machine in a whi... Read more

I bought my flex 3 14" just over a year ago. A few month before my warranty expired, the battery stopped working. It would not charge past 0%. I had to have it pulgged in in order to be able to use it, but as soon as I unplugged it, it would die. I sent the computer into the lenovo shop to be repaired, and when it came back the battery was working... for 24 hours. Now my computer has trouble charging up. It stays at it's current battery level. Also, it will charge for half a second, not charge, charge, not charge. This causes my brightness to go up and down. Unfortunately, my warranty has expired, so I can't send it again (idk if you even can do that). The only thing that I could think of that might be causing this is some damage to the wire. Right where the wire leaves the AC adapter and heads towards the laptops there is some fraying in the rubber casing around the wire and I can feel the wire itself. I don't want to buy a new charge just to find that the charger wasn't the problem. Please help.

A:Lenovo flex 3 14" battery problems

Hello Finn3Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Are you able to try to charge with an alternate charger, sounds like it might be just a faulty charger at this point.
 
Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)1. Turn the unit off2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter5. Turn the unit on as normal

And I am a law student so this is causing me a lot of anxiety. In the last few weeks the computer has started to freeze, and requires me to physically press the power button to restart it. I have tried a system recovery before the installation of windows 10 creative, I have tried unistalling/reinstalling java, I continue to check my system for updates. I have disabled the background apps. I am not running alot just mozillafoxfire, microsoft word, spotity (maybe), google chrome, and that is about it. And yet the CPU and or memory will  just shoot through the roof and it will freeze.

My Lenovo Flex won't respond at all when I try to wake it up from sleep mode. I've tried to unplug it and hold the power button down for 30 seconds, but the light just keeps flashing. It's been unplugged all day, so to help battery should be really low, but it's not turning off. Any ideas or suggestions on what to do? I go back to classes soon and I need it for my classes, so I really need it up and running asap.

A:Lenovo Flex Won't Wake Up

This seems to be a widespread issue with Lenovo laptops for a very long time, but there appears to be very little effort being taken by Lenovo support to provide its customers with the solution, or a document with the steps to resolve the issue. Holding the power button down for 30 seconds should (on nearly all laptops and desktop computers) forces a hard power off, but apparently that does not work on Lenovo Laptops when they gets stuck in this state. From what I can gather from various forums on the Internet, the only way to get the system booting again, sort of waiting until the battery dies, is to remove the rear cover, and unplug the battery, wait a minute or so, and and then pug it back in.   Some users also report that updating the video driver, and perhaps the BIOS, will resolve the issue, but Lenovo Support has chosen to remain silent (publicly anyway) on which one, if any, is an actual fix on any of the many forum posts regarding the error, which leads me to believe that they haven't a clue. You do not mention what exact model of Flex you have, so I cannot point you too any of the instructions online on how to remove your cover and unplug the battery, so you might post the model number (not the serial number) in the forum,  or open a ticket with Lenovo Support, although I sounds like their phone support has not been too much help for others.  Good Luck,

Then I thought, I could keep the SSD for the OS if I could install and additional HD for storage.
Can anyone tel me if there is a slot for an additional drive either as M.2, NGFF, mSATA or with an expansion using the optical drive slot?
Lenovo isnt very forthcoming with information on this that I can find.

According to the reviews I have read there are different versions of the flex 14. Some come with a 128Gb SSD, others come with a 500gb HDD. Also in the different version there are different CPUs. None of the reviews mention an optical drive and from the appearance of the case I see no ports that you could install one. Judging by the size of the case it doesn't appear to have a slot for a second hard drive.

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to read this.I got a Lenovo Flex 2 15 a while ago. Over these three months I've tried to find information wether this laptop supports a stylus to draw with to begin with, and which models would those be.After searching in forums, sent pms to Lenovo support via Facebook and being utterly ignored, contacting support of styluses makers (Adonit for example) I always get the same copy pasted get X stylus for Ipad and X for *other lenovo models, like Yoga700, etc* which do not seem to list my model among them. Perhaps it is because of the year or because Lenovo Flex 2 is not being made anymore, which I noticed after getting it, sadly. So I ask once again... perhaps this time someone will know! Does the Lenovo Flex 2 15 support Wacom or any other brand styluses to draw on the screen with? If so, which is the model I should go for? Thank you again for any answer that you could provide.

I have a lenovo flex 2 14 and it doesnt turn on.. I think the motherboard is dead and i'm trying to get a new one. I bought the computer in Austra and I can't find the part, I even asked a lenovo part retailer and he couldn't find it.. Anyone knows how could I get lenovo to find it? The computer is under warranty but right now i'm in USA and i cant send it in so i would like to buy the motherboard and have it shipped to the USA so I could replace it myself.Any ideas?Thank! PS: the computer S/N is WB15534056and the motherboard part number is 5B20G36323

Bought my Flex 4 several months ago and every so often IO get a little pop-up at bottom right of screen saying something like "Lenovo Credential Needed."Just what is this and what do I have to do? I don't want to click on it and then find out I did something I should not have done or have signed-up for something I didn't want, etc.Can someone enlighten me?
