Edge 530 - no Lenovo Settings Program and Lenovo S...

Q: Edge 530 - no Lenovo Settings Program and Lenovo S...

Using Windows 10 version 1511 and all updates. Used the Lenovo System Update and everything has been updated. I wanted to turn on the built-in camera on my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 530, the F5 key, and it came up with a message saying, "This key combination opens the Lenovo Settings Program. You do not have the Lenovo Settings Program installed on your computer. To launch the program using this key combination, install the program first." I went and downloaded the Thinkpad Settings Dependency for Windows 10, restarted the laptop and it still doesn't work. Even the Lenovo System Update program has it and I also downloaded it. I restarted the laptop again and it still doesn't work. I then went to install the Lenovo Settings App on the Windows store and it doesn't look like the right one plus it still didn't work. My other problem is with the Lenovo Companion App from the Windows Store. It worked before but now it ask to "Please install or update the Lenovo System Interface Driver for full functionality of Companion, then restart the app after installation." I have installed the Lenovo System Interface Driver multiple times and it still popped up that message. Yes, I have restarted the laptop and Companion. Is there a reason why these issues are happening and how to fix it? Thank you in advance.

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.)

I hope this is the correct place to post - did not see a E series in the ThinkPad Board... I am getting an error when trying to update to Lenovo System Update version 5.07.0065.I recently upgraded the computer form Windows 7 to Windows 10. Trying to make sure my drivers were up-to-date I ran across the newer version of the System Update app. When I tried to install, it gave me this error:The old version is now none existant in Programs and Features. Any ideas? All are appreciated!  Thanks.

Good evening! I have a Lenovo Edge 2 that has been babied since purchased. Never abused, dropped, no scratches or dents, it's in fantastic condition still. I purchased the extended warranty, hoping I'd never need it.Last year, it stopped charging properly. The battery power dropped to 0%, and hasn't increased since. The machine will only power on when plugged in to AC power, and will immediately power down when the adapter is disconnected. The charging status indicator LED on the right side of the machine flashes orange in a non-steady, intermittent pattern, and the charging indicator in the taskbar in Windows 10 does the same thing. I returned the machine to Best Buy, they sent it to their "Geek Squad" facility for repairs, and the AC Adaptor and battery were replaced, under warranty. The machine was returned to me, and still doesn't charge.I contacted Lenovo, they advised I would need to return it to their facility for repairs. I put it in the provided box, and dropped it off to FedEx on 6/24/17. It's now been 2 weeks. I contacted Lenovo to inquire about the status of the repair, and was told "The technician found evidence of damage, and the upper case will need to be replaced as well, but damage isn't covered under warranty, so you'll need to cover the cost of the repair." I asked for the price, was told "A technician will email you with the price." I inquired about the status of the original repairs, they told me the claim was on hold, pending my review and... Read more

I used Lenovo Settings on my Lenovo Yoga 3 11 for the battery conservations mode. So I was forced to install Lenovo Companion since it recently replaced Lenovo Settings.Ever since I did this, I have noticed the following:* Screen brightness keeps changing by itself slightly* Screen contrast keeps changing by itself slightly* Colours look muted and unsaturated, and filtered. Makes the sceen look worse than it should.* trackpad is only ignorred if the tablet mode is fully flat. The slightest opening causes the trackpad and keyboard to become sensitive. All of this irrespective of whether Dynamic Brighness Control is enabled or disabled in Lenvovo Companion hardware settings, and regarless of whether recommended hardware settings are used.Anyone else noticed anything similar? I'll report back after I've uninistalled the app to see whether any of these behaviours disappear.

A:Noticed issues ever since I installed Lenovo Companion (which replaced Lenovo Settings)

So I deactivated "Change brightness autoatically when lighting changes" in Windows Display Settings. This seems to have been the cause of the brightness and contrast changes, but the colours still look blander than I recall. Sorry to suspect Lenovov Companion so quickly, but the changes coincided with it's installation. Admittedly Windows 10 Fall edition just landed too.

Hello!I recently noticed that the Lenovo battery gauge icon is missing from my taskbar, I can't activate it, there's no way, I right-click the taskbar - > Toolbars -> Lenovo baterry Gauge, and it doesnt work. I also open Lenovo Settings and click "about and setting" and then try to set on "activate lenvovo battery gauge" , and nothing happens either, actually, the icon turns "on" but when I click elsewhere it goes back to "off". What can I do? What's happening?

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Hi, a couple of weeks ago, I tried to open Lenovo Settings and it instruct me to uninstall it, as all functions are now integrated to Lenovo Companion. I did, but noticed that the Lenovo Battery Gauge still points me to Lenovo Settings (left click on the battery gauge). I uninstalled Companion, and Settings, rebooted, and installed companion again, but looks the Gauge does not uninstall. How can I remove the gauge and make it point to companion? Thanks!

The product Lenovo edge 15, I purchased and just opening and closing it from laptop mode to tablet mode broke the surface part of the hinges. After that happened shortly after within a week or so, the whole computer stopped working. It will not turn on period, even with charge. Even though I barely used it. I went to basic training, came back and the warranty had expired for anything. I was going to college and paid my last few money I had to buy that computer only for it stop working, now I'm still a college student having to go to library just for use of a computer. I'm thoroughly upset at my situation and at the durability & design of the product. I would love to have a new one or to trade it in for my money back.

When I turned my Edge 15 (80H1) off the other day, it was working fine.  I went to turn it back on the next day, and all I got was the power light blinking slowly (approx. 1 second intervals).  When it is plugged in the light that usually indicates it's plugged in isn't on any more.  I can't get th power light to stop blinking when it's not plugged in.  The only way to get it to stop blinking is if I plug it in (still blinking) and then remove the power cord (then it stops), but of course won't power up.  Any advice would be appreciated.

I am presently researching to purchase a laptop for my wife at Christmas who is a teacher thus she will need to access the internet, do Office work, grading, emails, research, etc., but no gaming at all.

Will be running 7 64 OS, with 4 gigs of RAM, and hopefully a 7200 rpm hd. Leaning towards the i5 processor.

The Thinkpad Edge is part of Lenovo's excellent T Series but somewhat less expensive. Looking at current configurations it seems it will deliver what I am looking for but I know nothing of the quality build.

Would love to hear back from people who have used this series and/or from ITs who repair laptops for their insights.

Thanks!

Hello all, Let me introduce myself. I am a programmer that's had this laptop for a couple of months now, and while it has been good i've ran into this recent problem. I have experience in web, networking, and programming but I am not a hardware cs so bear with me. ISSUE:The Lenovo Edge 2 keyboard input will stop functioning in normal mode. It will not proccess input from the user regardless of which key-strokes used. In Safe-Mode, the keyboard will function at the login but input will produce 3 keystrokes per key instead of one. Once pass the login screen the keyboard will not function. This is a very recent issue in which the keyboard was working 3 days prior to this post. Previously tried solutions/recommendationsUnistalling and re-installing the keyboard drivers has 0 impact. Upgrading the drivers is also null. Unistalling, upgrading, and re-installing in Safe-Mode also is moot. This has been done twice. Using a standard PS/2 keyboard does work, but this is external and does not solve the problem.This is not an external program conflict/virus issue. The laptop is only months old and is closely monitored where malicious programs would not be installed. Networks and websites are also monitored and significant security software is already installed to detect such possibilities. I also have network/web experience as a Computer Science indivudal and would know if such programs attempt to connect and or download to my machine.   Factory Reset Installatio... Read more

It doesn't say plugged in-not charging, but rather the battery icon at the bottom just flashes from charging to not charging continously while it's plugged in. When it's plugged in, it doesn't lose any power, but it doesn't charge so I believe it is something to do with the battery, but I'm not really sure.  Thanks
