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, I just got my ideapad 210 today and was wondering if it is possible to get a regular laptop charger for it. The one supllied with the machine is very short and the powerpack unit attached to the plug is incredibly bulky. Very poor design feature. I have looked online and can only find similar power supply units.I have had issues with 3rd party power supplies in the past and I was wondering if Lenovo produce a more 'old fashioned' but useful power cable?

Hi, I bought a new Lenovo ideapad 510-15IKB about a month ago. It has windows 10. When I click on camera app it says "we can't find your camera. Check to be sure it's connected and installed properly, that it isn't being blocked by antivirus software, and that your camera drivers are up-to-date. If you need it, here's the error code: 0xA00F4244(0xC00D36D5). I have first disabled my antivirus and tried, but that didn't work. 'I checked device manager and there I couldn't see "Imaging devices" under which camera should show up as far as I know. Then I installed the camera driver here[1] and restarted the laptop but still camera app wouldn't work and camera wasn't there under device manager. Any help to get this issue resolved would be appreciated.  [1] http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/lk/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/500-Series/510-15IKB/downloads Thanks,Devni

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.

I was considering getting a Lenova IdeaPad 510-15IKB. It has just the features I was looking for and a couple extra. After checking a full on review of this laptop, I am still convinced it is the one for me but I do have just a wee bit of reservation. The review noted a weakness in the WIFI card provided by Realtek as being "surprisingly slow".  So I wonder, how much trouble would it be to just upgrade the wifi card after buying this laptop. Well the answer turns out to be, it may be difficult or impossible to upgrade the wifi. So here I am looking for some help. Is the wifi card upgradable? If so what cards are compatible and can they be installed after the purchase? And perhaps the most important question, is my concern about this "slow" wifi legitimate?

Ever since I got turned on my 510 for the first time, its fan has been spinning loudly, as if it was under a heavy load. Yet it isn't. Using HWMonitor I can see the temps resides at a cool ~30 degrees when idle, but the fans spins at the same level whether the temperature is 30 or 50, idle or under load. I figured perhaps a BIOS update would fix this problem, but I'm met with this error message. http://imgur.com/a/7FP0S Now, reading the error message, I can see that it addresses a EFI address. When I first got the computer, I did a clean install of Windows 10. To do this, I had to disable multiple things in BIOS such as Secure boot, Intel PTT, and enable legacy boot.  The BIOS update in question is the one below.http://support.lenovo.com/dk/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/500-Series/510-15IKB/80SV/downloads/DS...

Hi Nour-J, The page error might have been a temporary issue. I just check the support site and its currently working.  In any case the system should also have a copy of the drivers in "D:\drivers\" if it had windows pre-installed.If any case installing the camera drivers does not work, try re-installing the chipset drivers also. Hope this helps. Cheers,

Currently I'm playing music on Google Play music which plays fine until I'm about to click on another page or go to the home of google play for example and it stutters for a few seconds.Also not sure if this is related, when I use my bluetooth speaker, audio stutters really bad, worse than when using internal speakers. Possibly two different problems but for now I really only care about the internal speakers stuttering as I rarely use my bluetooth speakers on my pc. Any hardware can be specified.

Hello, last thursday I got my brand new Lenovo laptop Yoga 710-15IKB. Everything went smoothly with the setup and the computer looked great was working fine. When I finished setting up some essential programs browser etc, and was watching a youtube video my laptop just froze, fan was running but the screen keyboard cursor frozen. I thought nothing of it and restarted my computer and nothing happened after that. So I thought I was free to enjoy my good looking device. But now after my third usage I closed my laptop and went out to run some errands I came back an hour later or so and tried to open my computer and keep on using it but to my surprise the screen stayed black. Completely black, no flickering or anything. So i tried to reboot it by holding the start button down for 10s giving the computer a minute or so to rest then turned it back on. Same thing happens Keyboard lights up for a second or two then the fans just keep running and the screen stays completely black. This is extremely frustrating since this is a brand new computer and I desperately need it for studying and work. Screen black, computer starts and runs I can hear the fans keyboard lights up at first but screen is completely black. I would appreciate a quick response Lenovo, I had so high hopes for my new laptop. Best regards, Elisabet.

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.

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