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.)

Hi guys,I bought a new 510-15IKB (i5-7200U type). It came with DOS, I installed win10 and configured everything, installed drivers etc. My problem is the fan, it keeps working constantly in idle, even on battery, on battery saver mode, so it just totally neglects the energy management settings (passive cooling, etc.) and CPU temps (34 Celsius and the fan keeps working).The fan is working in its lowest state (maybe, never heard it be quieter), so the problem is not a loud fan, rather that the fan never turns off during idle. I'm an IT guy, I know how to make things work etc, but this just can't be solved by me.What I tried:- Restart etc.- Reinstall drivers from support page downloads- Install newest drivers from parts manufacturers (intel etc.)- Set different energy management settings- Updated UEFI to newest version (3JCN23WW)- updated win10 totally- ran malwarebytes anti-malware and kaspersky internet security 2017, both finished without finding anything- restarted with discrete graphics turned off in uefi- restarted with fast boot turned off in uefi- even tried it using an Ubuntu live session and it is the same And there is a strange buzzing sound on movement if it is perpendicular to the surface of the fan, it's really quiet, but happens on smaller movements too, and it even happened once while the laptop was completely still on the table. This part of my problem might be totally normal, so my bigger problem is with it not turning off.It seems like a UEFI problem... Read more

A:Ideapad 510-15IKB fan never idling

Tried reflashing the same BIOS but it did not help anything (as I tought it wouldn't).Moreover, the fan made the buzzing sound again, I could make it go away by tilting the whole laptop 90 degrees back to vertical position and then to horizontal.

Hi, I've installed Windows 10 on Ideapad 510-15IKB: 80SV00DUPB, with 12GB RAM.Specs says GeForce 940MX comes with 4GB dedicated memory, but Nvidia Control Panel and GPU-Z say it's 2GB. Does this mean I really got laptop with 2GB VRAM or I did something wrong during installation? Thanks,Andrii

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.
 
Anybody have any suggestions on what the probl... Read more

New Yoga 700-141SK: Ran the Lenovo Support Center Hardware Scan and the Video Card Mathematical Operations Test has failed rendering the Report: WVC007002-UL7BPL. Is there a tried and proven solution out there? I have had a look at the solutions on the forum and am not satisfied that the solutions offered prove that the problem has been resolved. It is reasonable to expect Lenovo to make available a solution as a matter of course instead of end-users of "afflicted" Lenovo devices having to request/search for a solution(s).

My father bought a Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t. Does anyone know, if the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t, can be upgraded from Win 7 Starter, to Win 7 home basic or premium? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

A:Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t

The short answer is "yes".

Check out Jesse Andersen's site on the S10-3t. He's pretty much the expert on that machine.

The relevant section for you is Lenovo S10-3T: Windows 7 Starter vs Home Basic vs Home Premium vs Professional vs Enterprise vs Ultimate

I'm thinking about getting one of these, myself.

Hello, As stated in the title, I have a Lenovo IdeaPad y580. I purchased it approximately three-and-a-half years ago, and only now is it really beginning to chug durings its processes. Point is, I want it to last perhaps another half year or so while I finish saving up for another computer. As a gamer, I'm fine with the limitations of the GPU, but sometimes my laptop legitimately has issues processing stuff, such as loading Google Chrome properly. I know enough about Windows to clean out viral matter and uninstall programs that I don't use that are running in the back. But does anyone have any tips or tricks to make this hunk of junk last maybe six more months before it becomes unusable?TL;DR I need to make my laptop run at least a reasonably sub-average to average level for six more months.

Hey Community, So I sent my laptop to the depot before my warranty expired to fix one of the hinges that supports the screen broke off. After receiving the laptop, I have had connection issues with my wireless. When I'm plug directly to the ethernet, no problem. The connection was spotty with wifi, but it came and went, didn't think too much of a problem.  Now, when i'm running off battery only, I cannot connect. I tried resetting, but to no avail. Strangely, when i'm plugged in via adapter for power, I can connect without any issue.   The problem is when I'm remote and using battery power, I can't connect at all.  Anyone experience this problem? Lenovo won't take back the unit since it's past my warranty period now. It's a minor inconvenience having to sit next to an outlet any time I need to connect via wifi.

ok here s the problem.... I got a virus (Anti-vira antivirus, and Windows antivirus 2012) both probably the worst ones I can think of, I used Malwarebites to remove them. however now that they re gone I don't have access to half the system files I use to (namely the task manager, built in windows error scanner, and the "properties" page for My COmputer).

now normally this wouldn't be a problem as I can just use my External HD to backup all the files I want and reinstall windows, BUT this is where the real problem starts, Lenovo 1 touch recovery isn't working, and when I try to boot up from CD I get a error saying the CD drive isn't working. There are 4 options on the Boot up menu (the F12 menu when starting the comp)1 is for CD the other is normal boot and there are 2 others that I don't know the name of. is there any way to fix this laptop without paying 80$ for them just to reinstall windows vista?

and yes do have the boot disk, the Driver disk, and it is a legitimate Windows vista copy, I have not installed any "aditional" hardware exept for the External HD which is "plug and play"

almost forgot, the CD/DVD drive works fine, I was using it to burn some files after the viruses hit my laptop >_>
