Lenovo Ideapad Y700-15 Touch - 80NW0015US

Q: Lenovo Ideapad Y700-15 Touch - 80NW0015US

For your infomation: 7 April 2016 Amazon price $1,194.99 Lenovo website does not specify what type of hard drive it comes with weither it is 2.5 ssd or M.2 ssd. I did call Lenovo prior to purchasing my computer to ask what type of drive it came with the sales staff told me it was a 2.5 inch ssd which turns out to be wrong. This laptop comes with a 500 GB M.2 ssd. It does not include the cable for the second hard drive, Your choice of 2.5 hd or 2.5 ssd. As of yet you cannot purchase the cable thru Lenovo parts department. The cable can be gotten thru AliExpress for around $49.00 (which does not include the hard drive caddy). Encompass also sales the cable but as of this time is back ordered to July 2016 at a price of $10 plus shipping. aslo does not come with the hard drive caddy. My computer had a bug when using it, windows exprorer service stopped working and I had to go to the task manager to restart the service. But after I went to windows update and downloaded the lastest updates this bug did not show up again. The best i can guess is not the fault of Lenovo. The hard drive is partitioned into 5 drives which include boot, driver back-up, one button recovery and two additional Lenovo reserved partitions. This does eat-up additional harddrive space. It comes with Windows 10 home edition. I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro edition but it would not upgrade unless I deleted all of the hard drive partitions. Before doing so i copied the back-up drivers to a usb drive. For whatever reason the wifi driver was not in the folder and I downloaded from the Lenovo site directly. There is a Youtube video showing how to install an attitional hard drive weither its a m.2 or 2.5 inch ssd. It also shows how to upgrade the ram and its location , just make sure its ddr4 and compatible with the manufactures specifications. From my research the laptop can be upgraded up to 32 gb of ram, two 16 gb sticks. The red back lighted keys are a plus when typing in a dark enviroment. The only feature which the computer did not come with which I wanted was a finger print scanner for more secure logins. The screen besel could have been skinner for my taste like the dell xps 15. Over all its a good looking laptop.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Grettings. So, last year i bought this Ideapad Y700 Touch-15ISK gaming laptop and i really love it, just that i would like to make a small upgrade to it, like having a SSD (exclusively to load OS) and a HDD (to install games/software, etc), i just wonder if it's possible (if the hardware has the slot to do so). Also i was wondering if i can replace it's graphics card to a higher-tier one (it came with a GeForce GTX 960M, was thinking to get the GTX 980M), as i was thinking to assemble a gaming PC, i thought it would be easier to me to just upgrade my gaming laptop (and save a lot more money doing so) Thanks in advance

I currently own and use a "Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop (ideapad)" . It is only around 6 months old, and I've run into my first major error. Issue : I closed the screen on my computer overnight, when I re-opened my computer in the morning, I restarted my computer, and now it won't turn back on. Details about the issue : When I try and turn my computer on, the power button lights up and my keyboard lights up for like 5 seconds, but the screen does nothing but stay black. After those 5 seconds, my keyboard doesn't light up anymore, but I still hear the computer fans running.  **PLEASE HELP**

There's a single HDMI output and no other VGA or DVI outputs available.  I'm slowing losing my mind not being able to run naviagation and maps on one screen and my flight sim on the other.  Yes I know I can use the laptop monitor but it's just easier to run out two monitors and close the laptop. Anyone use a USB 3.0 solution that's verified to work?  Or can someone point me in the right direction?  I've spent hours searching but am afraid to pull the trigger on something that isn't verified.

Hello,  I have the Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) which I received as a replacement for my last Lenovo which could not be fixed by Lenovo Support. Since I received this as a replacement, my warranty only lasted a month (the residual from my initial warranty). Now, I have only had it for a few months and it has had many instances of the blue screen of death with my computer suddenly needing a restart. I do not have warranty anymore so I am reaching out to you all. The hardware scan says the Mathmatical Operations Test on my Intel (HD) Graphics 550 card failed. I got the result code: WVC007002-UL7VFK. I could not find any information about this code online.  Through the Lenovo website I tried to update my Intel driver by downloading the one the website recommended for my computer after I entered my Serial # (I think it was Intel VGA) and after it downloaded I got a warning saying: "Error: The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Obtain the appropriate driver from the computer's manufacturer. Setup will exit." Regarding the blue screen of death, there have been several different error messages, but the one that comes the most often is "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE". The most recent blue screen message was "Stop Code: SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION; What failed: igdkmd64.sys" I am not sure if these problems are related, but it seems the most important issue is the graphics driver since I use a lot o...

Hello, 
 
I'm hoping this is the right section for my problems,
Moderator comment: Moved it for you.
 
I decided to invest in a new laptop as my other one had fallen on the ground, and lately for the past two month's all I've been having with it was troubles. Ther first problem I had was with the external microphone I used (Blue Yeti) It wouldn't detect or something and eventually made my speakers and microphone stop working all together. With no clue on how to fix it I ended up factory resetting my product. Everything's been fine with this problem, but if you have a fix to it if it arrises again then that'd be helpful.
 
Just yesterday I had a problem with my laptop where I was using it and the screen suddenly went black, I restarted it and the LENOVO loading screen came up only to have it stuck on the screen with a loading symbol and my curser. I contacted a live agent who told me to factory reset my laptop which brings me onto what happens when I do that below;
 
I have also had a problem where It would update from windows 8.1 to windows 10 & "Windows Explorer" would continue to crash and refresh every second thus making the laptop un-useable in this state unless I open a program through "Task Manager". Due to this problem I had to factory reset my laptop about five times as I cannot resolve it and it continues to arrise if I set a background to my laptop - I have tried everything, from updating drivers to much more and have yet to find a fix t...

Whenever audio starts the right speaker pops. I have also had an issue with the screen not displaying properly since purchase. It gets artifacts for a few minutes then they go away. Would my warranty be voided if I opened it up to look for a loose cable?  I purchased on 2/12/16 is my warranty even still good? EDIT: I also have the 100% disk usage issue that plagues W10. Would a SSD fix that?

I want to know if the fan is supported by a dust filter mesh? And is it possible that the hair got through to the components inside? Should I haved checked and cleaned from the inside? Thanks in advance,Mohamed

Hey all!I bought a Lenovo Ideapad Y700 15ISK Laptop  (touch version) exactly a month ago through a seller, since I live in Pakistan & as far I know Lenovo doesn't officially function here. Other details: Windows 10; core i7; 16gb; 512gb memory. About a week ago i clicked on the wrong link and got a terrible virus because of which i had to reformat my hard drive by reloading my Windows 10 (through that full/all disk reset option). What that resulted in was a simple windows 10 (without the preloaded software which I kinda want back), and a heck of a lot of problems. Firstly, is there any way to get back that preloaded software? I've tried searching everywhere but can't really find it; found the nvidia and reltek stuff but that's it. Secondly, the black screen of death; this was something that happened to me the very first time i opened the laptop, and the second time after i reloaded it. It hasn't happened since, but was wondering if there's a way to fix without physically doing anything to the laptop. Thirdly, ever since I've reloaded windows, the on-screen indicators for caps lock and num lock do not show up, and I really want those because i'm still adjusting to this keyboard. I've tried looking for it here on the forum, but all the instructions are for windows 7 or maybe 8, nothing for windows 10 (the instructions for windows 7 can't apply to windows 10 because the options aren't the same).

The second thing is what is the max RAM and storage the laptop can have? Lastly, will upgrading the RAM and SSD void my warranty?The "Hardware Maintenance Manual" (HMM) contains the specifications of your laptop (plus other information).  You can download it from the Lenovo web site.  Scroll to the bottom of this page and click "Manuals" in the "Support" column. I have an Ideapad 700-15ISK (not a Y700-15ISK), but I think that the answers to your questions are: (1) Two RAM sockets.  My 700 also has two RAM sockets, and the maximum RAM supported is 32 GB, but the Y700 might have a maximum of only 16 GB.  Look in the HMM to find out. (2) One M.2 SSD socket.  Note: not all brands and models of SSD are supported; you have to purchase an SSD that is on the list of supported SSDs (if you buy something else, there is no guarantee that it will work in the Y700).  Look in the HMM to see what SSD models are supported. (3) You can use an M.2 SSD with the HDD.  Alternatively, you could remove the HDD and replace it with a 2.5 inch SATA SSD. (4) I think (not sure) that the RAM, SSD, and HDD are regarded as "user replaceable parts", so you can change them without voiding your warranty.  But it needs someone from Lenovo to confirm...
