Hi All, I recently bought a Lenovo Ideacenter  Y710 CUBE (Specs below taken from retailer home page) I believe this to be enough for someone with knowledge to give me an answer but let me know if you need additional info please. In short I wish to add as much RAM and SSD (+ regular HD) into the box as possible. What in detail is compatible with the cube. * My wish is to add a SSD drive (500 -1 TB) since it come of the shelf with only 256 GB. My question is this, I believe it to be a SATA connection but how many Pins? I.e what type of hardware in details should I put in my machine? * I would also like to add a "regular" mechanical HD with approx 2-5 TB anything here I should know except SATA connection? * I would also like to have more RAM in the cube. Everyone says RAM is sensitive and I might be better off to exchange the given 8 gb with a fresh pair of 2x16 (32 gb which is the MAX of the machine) or 2x8 GB all with the same RAM Mhz. Its a shame to throw away the given 8 gb but what are my options here? If fresh ones some details on hardware specs would be great! * Lasty Im curious what the "button" is on the side which is on the floor. Does it have anything to do with opening the chassi? I really hope someone is able to help it, specs below and please reach out for more info if needed!

So. After using a old high spec pc for 4 years I decided to get a new one. I ended up with this one becuase it was cheap and had some pretty good specs.
After a day or two problems started to arise. At first my windows os started to freeze a bit. I didn't think of it as serious since I've had many problems on my computers before and thought I could fix it. I couldn't.
Also, It doesn't seem to live up to it's specs as it should.
First, Here's my my specs;
Nvidia Geforce Gtx 1060 6gb.
Intel Core i5-6400 
8gb of Samsung ram (One Stick)
Windows 10 64-bit
The os freezes / bugs out
My programs randomly stop responding and/or crashes
My screen goes completly black and I can't do anything
Anyone got some tips?

Hey guys, I got myself an Y710 Cube and when I was reading the reviews, a lot of people said that the perk of this model is pre-installed Xbox Wireless Adapter.Is it present in all Y710 modifications or just some? I have trouble finding it in the Hardware manager, maybe I'm looking for it in the wrong place. But anyway, instruction says that to pair an Xbox controller with my machine I need to press and hold the Nexus button. This button on my machine does not behave like a button though - looks like a stub for button. I mean, I cannot press it unless I crush some plastic. So can that be a sign that the wireless adapter is not built-in my modification? Wonder where I can see the list of hardware installed in the machine (maybe it can be tracked down with a serial number?) Thanks.

Dear Lenovo, I have recently purchased Y710 Cube 15-ISH with H170 that support Kaby Lake CPUs (according to Intel's ARK), but requires just a BIOS upgrade. Since it was available only with i5-6400 here, I want now to upgrade to i7. So I want to ask when we can expect upgrade of BIOS on Y710, so I can upgrade my CPU to Kaby Lake i7, which is basically same price as 6th gen but faster. Other mainboard suppliers already provided their customers such updates. Best regards,Adam Strzelecki

Hi all, Last night, I managed to power on an old Flex 3 15" that I had lent to a friend. When it started booting, it prompted me to press a key to skip disk checking. Being curious as to whether the laptop has a HDD issue or not, I let it run. It now has been over 24 hours, and without a progress-bar, I'm not sure if it is stuck or is actually working. I'm not sure as to how much data is on the drive since he returned it to me without giving me his password. Any suggestions as to what to do?

I have this problem where it takes approximately 5 minutes to boot up my Lenovo Y500 (Windows 8, 64-bit) laptop. I had this laptop for almost an year. It was fine in the beginning, took around 20 seconds to boot. However, over time when I restart my computer because of the windows update or defraging, I noticed that it took extremely long to boot, like 5 minutes. It would be stuck on the Lenovo logo with the spinning circle for 5 minutes. After that there is no problem getting to my desktop. I assumed my HDD (1 terabyte) had a problem. I ran all different programs to diagnose the HDD but it all said it was in "OK" status. So, I did the chkdsk on the CMD and it prompted me that it'll start when I restart my laptop. So I did and now it's stuck on scanning and repairing drive (C: 27% complete for almost 12 hours. I am not sure how long I have to wait and if it's going to be 27% forever.

Hi to all!I have a huge problem:My laptop started to freeze and not starting apps so I rebooted it (by pressing and keeping down the power button).Next time it started, when showing the Lenovo logo and the loading spinner it took a lot more than usual, next it showed "Diagnosing your PC" and after a while the screen showed "Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete"... and it's been like 12hours now. Panicking for my files the first thing I did was to download Ubuntu and create an USB bootable image to backup my files, this went OK.Then, to try to make my laptop to start I've tried, so far: 1) Power the laptop off and press the Novo button which lead me to the Novo Menu and when I choose 'System Recovery' I get a "Onekey recovery partition has damaged so do not lauch the main application" and I get send back to the "repairing disk errors..." screen. 2) Download , from Microsoft, installation media, made a bootable USB to get to the Troubleshoot options which are- Repair start: when I choose this, nothing happends either, same repairing disk errors screen again- Try to recover to a previous state: nothing happens even thou I have available recovery points, the computer freezes and nothins happens.(In case i'm not making myself clear, I took these 2 Microsoft solutions from this post:http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-update/windows-10-stuck-on-repairing-dis... ) Any other ideas?

Hello, my Lenovo laptop running on Windows 8.1 has been stuck on "Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete." I've never had any problems with it in the 3 years of using it. I turned it off normally, then in the morning it was started up, went normally through the password part, then it was supposedly loading too long, so my mom shut it down and restarted it and then the program asked to do a system restore to a previous point in time and now it has been stuck on "Repairing disk errors.." for over 16 hours now. There is only the power light on and the fan is working, as well as the keyboard, but the screen only shows the Lenovo logo and the "Repairing disk errors." text. Should I wait and leave it alone, or what should I do? Can I turn it off or will I damage it?

Hi, last night my laptop became very slow to load when I took it off sleep.

It took so long to load that I waited and eventually pressed the power button down for five seconds to turn it off just as the login screen finally loaded. When I turned my laptop back on, it kept loading (with the hp symbol above) with the message "Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete.". I left it on all night (since 8:30 PM) & it was still at the same screen by 11:30 AM the next morning.

I turned the laptop off again and on again about ten minutes later. I received a blue error screen that stated something to do with "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT" and then it went back to "Repairing disk errors". About an hour later this time, I have a screen with a "Automatic Repair" title followed by "Windows couldn't load correctly", "System Restore can try to restore your PC to an earlier point in time when it worked correctly, This repair will not change personal data, but it might remove some apps that were installed recently. You cannot undo this process.".

I definitely don't want to click Restore as I don't recall there ever being frequent backups of any kind and I'm not sure what will happen if I press Cancel. I'm simply leaving it to this screen until I can get help. I'm certain my data is still there as I said earlier that it did reach the logon screen once (though I was already in the process of turning it back off by that... Read more

A:Windows 8 Memory Management & Repairing Disk Errors issue

I would say your symptoms sound like a good fit for a failing HDD. So the good news is that if the unit is only 6 months old, unless it was a refurb with a 90-day warranty, HP's on the hook to send you a replacement drive. Bad news is, if the HDD is failing then your hopes of backing anything up are likely slim to none. Even if we were just talking about a run of the mill corrupted OS, what good would cloning it do? You'd just have a corrupted OS on portable media as well.

I'd grab a copy of a Linux distribution that can be installed to a USB flash drive or portable HDD and boot that. From there, as long as you didn't encrypt the internal HDD, you can try and copy off files. Programs are a lost cause, don't even bother, but things like an MP3 collection or photos you have at least a fighting chance of saving.

Then remember the old sysadmin mantra: You only lose what you don't back up.

Hello -

Recently one of the computers on my network came up with the following message on boot:
The following file is missing or corrupted \windows\

I repaired the system using XP disk, restarted and the system came up fine. But the font was different everywhere. Also, the normal icons on the upper left of windows are missing and when the users tried to print an Excel document he gets a printout of strange characters instead of the words/numbers he has in his excel spreadsheet.

Any ideas what I should do next?

Thanks as always

Out of the blue my Dell Inspiron laptop decided it needed to reboot for repairs. Now it won't stop doing a scan/repair or some other recovery. I turn it off and on and it goes between the two. Yet it never actually completes either one. It just goes on and on. Now I get the Dell Backup and Recovery program which says there's damage and just keeps going and going. I only visit a few websites and would have no idea how I got a virus. It was fine and then all of a sudden not.

This is more likely a bad hard drive than a virus.  Run an extended diagnostic on the drive - F12 at powerup.

Hello everyone,
Im using windows 8.1 which came out with my laptop.
Problem is that, that "scanning and repairing drive ( c : )" stuck at 10% completed...
Today I installed latest TuneUp utilities program, and it recomended me to use ' disk doctor' , after that, Ive restarted laptop as it asked, and now all i see is HP logo and that line, where it says ' S. and R. drive C : 10% completed ..
It been like that for a hour or so...
I had did disk scan n repair month ago as well, but then everything worked without any problems. Then (month ago) and now, while this scan and repair is working, I hear some kind of sounds coming out from my laptop. Like clunking,very quiet beepinv or clicking something like that( never heard these sounds, while i boot and use my laptop normaly).
Ive red in this forum about same situation, but didnt got correct answer.

Is there anyway to cancel this scan? I tried holding power button and restarting like that- on boot it goes on s and r. again, and stucks at 10% ..
If no, how long it will take to scan and fix c disk, if it has 1TB in in?

Thanks for reading, i hope somebody will answer :c

PC slowed down all of a sudden. Defragmented disk, deleted temp files etc still slow. Tried to sfc scannow, that stopped at 42%. Eventually got it working. Then tried chkdsk. That would always get stuck at 3%. So I keep force shutting it down. Now PC refuses to boot to the sign in screen, and there's a constant cycle of scanning and repairing drive. No percentage is shown. What do I do. Thanks

I Have just managed to use raw copy to copy a corrupted hard drive on to a partition on my laptop. I then converted it successfully onto a separate partition.

After shutting down my laptop I tried to use it later on and found that it wouldnt boot up fully. The message says scanning and repairing drive 36%. one hour later it still displayed the same screen. I can only assume that it is the raw partition causing this. I am using windows 8 pro, not the upgrade. Any ideas? Many thanks.

Every time I try to boot my computer, I get the message that it is scanning and repairing the (L: ) drive and it takes approximately a whole day to get to 10% complete.  Then I leave it overnight and when I wake it up, it either has a blank screen or it has restarted the scan at 0%.  I have tried turning it off and on again, but it either goes to the scanning screen or it is just blank.  This has been going on for days now and I am at a loss of what to do next.

barber101 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I'm guessing this PC did not come with Win10 preinstalled, right? And, if that is the case, what was installed -- Windows 7? If it's that old, the most likely cause for the great slowdown is a failing drive -- because when sectors start to go bad, instead of the drive reading hundres of sectors per second, it can spend seconds on each sector -- and that can easily cause a 10-minute scan to last for hours, or even, for days. If you can, follow the directions in this link for testing your hard drive: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00439024If that confirms your drive has failed, then you need to replace it. Please report back if that is the case.We can proceed once you provide the information.Thanks

I powered off via the power switch, and currently (as this is being wrote) my laptop is 'scanning and repairing drive (c'. I know this is something quite bad, but can anyone elaborate on why this is happening? It hasn't done it more than once, I am leaving it do do its stuff.

Hello All, Hopefully I can get some useful information here. In a few months time I wish to upgrade my current OS Vista 32bit) to Windows 7 64 bit. Ive already located ram that would upgrade to 8GB which a huge improvement on my original ram. The problem I have and many people is the migration to 64bit. I have read messages saying the Y530's drivers for 64bit Vista will work with Windows 7 64bit, but im not sure yet. The problem being lenovo has not released any 64 bit drivers for the hardware on a Y710. Now I know a Y530 is generally the same computer just with a smaller screen.Now here's the run down ive looked up all the vital driver (chipset, graphics) but the not usually uprgraded drivers such as BIOS and power management and ACPI, wireless, Ethernet, sound, and many others say they will accept a 64 bit version but im not sure if they are different from a 530 compared to a Y710.Also the Lenovo specific drivers for the touch features on the laptop, and specific buttons. Would the drivers be the same for the 530 as the 710.One big question is the Novo button. Ive used it before and know it reinstalled the OS. But how do I configure this when installing a new OS. Does it do it automatically? Or do I have to send it to Lenovo?Hopefully I can get some reassurance on upgrading my computer!

A:Lenovo Y710- Upgrade to Windows 7 64bit from Vista...

I have a Y710 and am contemplating the Upgrade myself right now.I have in the past found that you will lose some of the funtionality and I dont realy want to lose to much. I have read that the Y730 drives also work and my current thinking is that between the Y530 and Y730 driver I should get most of it working. With the acer notebooks I know you can burn a recovery disk that will restore to original. on the Lenovo It seems to be in a partition that does the recovery but to be honest If I reload that 30Gb C:\ drive  is going away as I will repartition to a single size.But if win7 tanks and I have to go back I would realy like to be able to. I moved to Windows 7 from Vista on my desktop and all I can say is it is just sooooo much better in performance and stability.

Yesterday, when I switched on the PC, Windows started a scan and repair of one of the disk drive (320 GB SATA, not the boot drive). I thought it was a routine check. But, when I returned home (~9hrs) and saw it is still stuck at 6%, restarted the pc. The drive was accessible but took longer time to show the contents. When I opened one of the folder, it stopped responding and the window was frozen! I restarted the PC, kept the scan running overnight, but still it is stuck at 6% (~10hrs)!! I am worried if my data will be lost.

Can anyone please help or suggest how to fix this issue? I tried running CHKDSK from windows command prompt, but since the drive is NTFS it couldn't do anything.

A:Scanning and Repairing Stuck for Last 10 hours

chkdsk will work on NTFS formatted drives
I suspect the harddrive may have failed
or windows corrupted
Dont allow the repair to continue any longer - I have known this repair to actually cause more damage and getting any data off the drive (assuming you dont have a backup) becomes more difficult if not impossible

how are you running chkdsk if the pc will not start ?

I have a Laptop, HP Envy 17inch

It recently started giving me the blue screen errors, not very often but still enough to be noticeable

After a few google searches I was under the impression that doing a chkdsk command via the cmd prompt is best option to check for errors on a hard drive

I set it to perform this restart

I restarted it said scanning and repairing etc

Got stuck at 10% for ages, after reading that some people's has taken over 24 hours to complete

I figured I would go to sleep, upon waking I see that their is no

It's just got a small loading circle with HP logo above it

Has been like this since 8am in the morning, it's now 3:25am the following night

Do I just let this run ? Or do I restart ?

If so what's best route... Holding down the power button ? Taking battery out ?

Sorry for the vagueness, I Thankyou in advance for any help you can offer me

Does anybody knows why this happen... It wasted my half hour to recover the system . Thanks alot

A:Scanning & Repairing Windows Drive

It's generally triggered because of disk errors or something faulty with the drive.

I remember running 8 To Go on a flash drive, near the end, it did the same thing because the flash was crap.

On a hard drive, there might be something wrong with it. If you can, go Computer, right click on the D drive, Properties, go to the Tools tab, and click on Check and Scan Drive. There might not be anything wrong with it now since it already did that at boot. Laptop hard drives are scary time bombs, since you move the laptop while its moving, it can get a bit damaged, not a lot to make a difference, but over time that adds up and causes issues. Believe me, I've had that happen many a time and seen it happen many a time. Scary stuff.

I have read this post and it tells to open a new thread.

Windows 8 Scanning and Repairing (C:) on Startup - PROBLEM
Laptop model: toshiba satellite l70d-a

Age: 3 months old

Problem: when loading laptop Scanning and Repairing drive C stuck at 100%. I cannot do anything else than removing the battery. Started suddenly. I have tried to see if there were hd problems but found nothing. Ideas?

I have opened the registry and (following the suggestion from the thread above I have looked at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager) the reg key is:

autocheck autochk *

How should I change it?

Sorry it may be a simple question but I would like to avoid to screw up
Can anyone help?

And also, since we are talking about the registry, if anything goes wrong how do I reload the registry backup I have just made?
Thanks for your time ! Much appreciated.

I apologize in advance for wall of text !! Trying to supply as much information as I can.
I have a Windows 10 HP that's around 2 years old. The computer is in good shape physically but has not had antivirus for a while. Recently while on the internet I've gotten notices that a drive has failed (or module) and after some lag the web page returns to normal and says drive has recovered. . Also while playing overwatch(a safe and to what I know 99.9% sure should be virus free game from blizzard) I've gotten a blue screen recently with a loud screech and it's said Windows ran into problems collecting information. Shortly after a 0 to 100% and collecting the info the computer reloaded and returned to normal (and playable again). With that being said I just started AVG antivirus and followed some of the recommendations and they all worked well(could notice improvements immediately). The last recommendation was to scan and check drives. The process required to the restart computer and once it did it prompt a black screen with the HP logo and "scanning and repairing drive (C with a %. It has now been stuck on 11% complete for 2-3 hours and I'm preparing for the worst from what I've read. I need to do everything possible to keep the information/pictures/etc on the computer.

Good day all,
I recently encountered an issue with a friend's Inspiron laptop I've never seen before, and one that has resisted what I believed would be the fix. Each time the computer is booted, beneath the Dell logo just before the lock screen, a message reads:
Scanning and repairing drive (\\?\Volume{70dec3d5-1deb-41f2-bb24-cb9670d342b0})
The counter reaches 100% in a matter of seconds and boot continues normally. This seems to indicate something wrong with the drive; an integrity scan did not report the drive as failing or damaged and a full chkdsk did not report any issues. Despite this the message persists.
The laptop is running Windows 10, a copy that was downloaded from the upgrade period last year. I suspect it could be a faulty update because the problem only manifested itself a couple of days ago. Let me know if you have any ideas because this one has me stumped!

What is the exact system model?
We might need to check the HDD functionality first.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional. Also, run an extended / thorough tests on the HDD and memory to check for any possible errors. 
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

I wanted to do a system restore on my Toshiba laptop but when I tried Windows just restarted, gave me error 0x81000204 and told me I should run chkdsk /R. I tried to run chkdsk and everything was going fine and working at a normal speed until it got to 10%, at which point it got stuck and has been at 10% for over two hours. The circle on screen is still spinning so I know my laptop hasn't frozen or anything. I don't really want to have to cancel the disk check because I want to be able to do my system restore, so I was wondering if there's any way to fix this without cancelling, restarting etc. Or if I have to cancel the disk check, how can I do a system restore without doing another disk check and getting stuck again? Thank you in advance for any help!

Hate to be the bringer of bad news ... but your drive is failing or already failed. When CHKDSK hangs like that, it's a sign of sector failure -- an indication of a failing drive. Cancelling CHKDSK is going to leave the filesystem in a bad state, but since the drive is failing, that's not really going to make a difference at this point.

It would be pointless to do a system restore, since not only does that not restore the whole system (since it only actually resets the Operating System back to an earlier point in time), with a failing drive, I would expect the restore to fail soon after it started -- leaving you in much the same state as you are now.

If you can remove your drive from the laptop, connect it to another PC, you can try using Data Recovery apps to retrieve some of the files and folders. One free one is Recuva. The best one I've used is RecoverMyFiles -- but while you can download and install it for free, you have to buy a license to do the actual data recovery.

So, long story short I had some YouTube uploading troubles, I asked some guy about it and he said its possibly caused by a virus, so I looked at my antivirus and it said there was an error with my C drive and I needed to restart to repair it, so I did and the repair process got stuck at 27% for about half an hour, I've tried everything and I've looked everywhere, but I got nothing, my laptop now can't do anything, if I try to skip the repairing process it just restarts it again so I can't get anywhere with it, please help, it's a new computer
