Lenovo Ideapad 310 Stuttering Sound & Customer Service Problems

Q: Lenovo Ideapad 310 Stuttering Sound & Customer Service Problems

I purchased my computer on Nov. 26, 2016 less than 3 months later, on Feb 2, 2017, the sound when I played music or videos started to stutter and become distorted. This happened when using the laptop speakers, external speakers and headphones. If I restarted the computer the stuttering would stop for a few hours then come back. I researched online for a fix and couldn't find one that worked. After a month of this happening I finally called Lenovo customer service. They had me reinstall the drivers. That didn't work so they suggested a factory reset. So I backed up my files and did one. That still didn't make the stuttering stop. It was still under warrenty, so per their advice I had to send the laptop in to Louisville, KY. (Which I had to pay $60 to ship them, because they only cover return shipping, this is the sign of a terrible company.) I sent it in on 3/13 and they have been waiting on a part since 3/20. Today 3/30 I call costumer service for an update and they tell me the part will not be in until APRIL 10th!!! Of course costumer service can not tell me why the part is taking so long to get there. I'm very upset with this whole process. My computer only worked for a little over 2 months and now Lenovo is keeping my computer for a month at least? This is not what I paid for. I use my computer for work so this is a major. Has anyone else had any of these same issues?

I am very dissatisfied with the lenovo services, that can not be accepted. I sent my laptop to the lenovo uk service to repair it on 06.12.2017 and since then I have not repaired it until now, already there for two and a half months. Only promises and lies come from them. I bought the laptop with 2000 euros and I invested in upgrades 600 euros to fill the empty slots (rams and ssd disks) and broke after 3 months of operation, but I still have not got my laptop repaired or new one. In this way, lenovo appreciates customers who give a lot of money on their products.. so their customers are so appreciated..I have decided if the case will not be resolved soon, I will sue (will go to the court) and complain to the police.. It's a big shame for such a big company to do that with his clients..there are many incidents in which customers are cheated.. manny people i have the same problem with customers lenovo just look: https://youtu.be/g5s35cfqeKUhttps://youtu.be/mwHGZ4MJFvc and there are many cases of that kind.... so this is lenovo's support!!!!

Hello everyone, I would like to share my Lenovo Customer Service experience. While on holidays in Poland last August, I decided to buy a new laptop in one of the big electronic stores. The laptop, however, developed a fault on the second day. I thought it was a case of bad drivers causing the problem. After I returned from my holidays, the fault was still there.  I contacted the Lenovo Customer Service who requested a proof of purchase. I explained that the laptop was bought in Poland on holidays and sent them on the receipt. A day later, I got an email saying: "Your machine has been booked in for a full repair at our service centre. Thank you for your proof of purchase. In 2-3 working days you will receive a letter containing instructions regarding the booking of your collection. The letter will also contain very important terms and conditions in particular with regards to data loss. Please follow the instructions and your machine will be repaired under warranty." A few days later the machine was taken off me by a DPD courier for almost 2 weeks. In the meantime I had no other option but to use my father's laptop to do my final year college project. I was delighted when I got the email: "We have completed the servicing of your item.Your item is now being packed and prepared for dispatch. You can track your package online..." However, 30 mins after using the "newly repaired" laptop, the stripy screen came back! Needless to... Read more

A:Truly Terrible Customer Service- Problems With Lenovo U410

I find it absolutely deplorable of Lenovo that there has been no posted response to this customer service issue. I have been trying to decide for a while now if it was worth purchasing a Yoga 2 Pro as it looked to have all the specs of a PC Hybrid I was hoping for. Well....how wrong could I have been...I had no idea how appalling the customer service is from this company! Firstly, in the UK...there have been some nightmare stories of faulty items and ridiculous product shipping delays that just seem to keep changing without any thought for the consumer in explaining what the hold up is. If you want to see a fantastic daily updated example of this alone just have a look at the Lenovo UK Facebook product page. Just reading it for ten minutes is tragic. There are so many upset customers in there that it almost seems comical.  The shipping delays are pathetic, they will glady take people's money (including warranties on items that arent there!) and hold it in the Lenovo bank accounts but the slow service and response to those with faults displays a complete disregard for the consumer. I can understand a company being unable to keep up with high demand of a product if it is very good and in demand but this needs to be addressed with admission in communication. Simply advertising a product that people cannot access and dealing with the irate customer-in-waiting afterwards is not acceptable. Let it be known that Lenovo through their own incompetence have lost a c...

I have had problems with my Thinkpad A475 and Lenovo has been troubleshooting my laptop for over a month now. They decided to come and pick up my laptop last week to run a diagnostic and they found out that the bluetooth connection problems that I had was caused by currupted Windows 10 built in my laptop. So they fixed it by installing a new Windows 10 but when I asked them what am I gonna do if I decides to reset my laptop again? Their answer is that I have to install it from a flash drive.. I am extremely disappointed that they are unwilling to replace me a new laptop when they cannot guarantee me that I can reset my laptop without using any USB drives. I do not pay 3000 in my local currency for a Thinkpad that I have to boot or reset from an USB drive in the future.  I am also very disappointed about the quality of their keyboards. When I first got it, it had a problem and then they replaced it and I had a problem again with the space key registering two times sometimes. Okay they checked it and said it had no problems but they replaced a new keyboard for me anyways. I really wonder how many problems I have ro go through again before this business laptop can be used for my business. My whole workflow has been ruined and also the reputation of Thinkpad and Lenovo customer service as well. I am just doomed from the moment I bought this laptop. None of my work has been done...what a joke!! The serial number of my laptop is PF1F67GC. I hope someone that sti... Read more

Hello all, I purchased a Lenovo Ideapad Y700-17ISK part # 80Q00011US, and according to case manager assigned to my case, 100 days ago. The notebook was mis-represented by a sales rep, and when I got the machine and it didn't have the second hard drive bay in rear of machine, which I was told the 80Q00011US had. The machine also had a mild display issue, but rather than report it and spend 2+ weeks without a machine, I ignore the issue. It didn't affect daily usage anyways. So 10 days ago, the machine dies during a reboot. Seems the MB fried. I have been fighting and waiting (mostly waiting) for over a week for a case manager (Crystal) to contact me, which finally happen @ 7:30 AM PST yesterday. The case manager was not customer friendly, refused the replacement or refund options I requested, stated they would ONLY repair the system. Her cause for "rejecting" those options was because I didn't report the display issue in the first 30 days (I have enough exp. (35 Yrs.) in computers to know a bad spot in display is NOT going to fried a MB). Conservation got heated. I refuse the repair option because I know what they will do is replace MB & Display, and return other parts back to the machine (parts that very well could have been damaged when MB died, leaving me with a US$1,300 refurbished machine). I then requested to speak with her supervisor since I was tired of being BS-ed, only for her to claim there was no-one higher to speak to, and her actually hang... Read more

Nearly six weeks my P52 has been out for repair & every time I call they say the same thing.  They claim they're waiting on a motherboard to come in from China.  Given that I could purchase a brand new P52 & have it shipped to me in a few days it's unbelievable that Lenovo's own repair centers still can't get a replacement board!  This is absurd for what I thought was a business class machine.  I've already had to purchase another laptop since I cannot do my work without a capable machine & I spent a few hundred more & bought a Dell mobile workstation like I should have the first time.  Never again will I buy a Lenovo product, it's obvious to me they only care about selling computers & have no clue how to support them.

That is exactly what I was told by one of the tech support assistance. My wife's chrome book has given up the ghost and was sent for repair over two weeks ago. Finally I receive an email from a third party company looking for 460 to repair a chrome book worth about 200! They rely on that age-old claim of liquid ingress! My wife is a middle-aged secretary and not prone to giving her laptop a drink. The chrome book is only 10 months old and I thought Lenovo were going to repair it but clearly they have some other shady company that they farm the repairs out to. I just can't believe that Lenovo has such little regard for its customers that it would allow this to happen. If there is a customer support function within Lenovo, please would you contact me and I will give you the details of this matter and hopefully you can help me. This device is still in guarantee and you should not try to avoid the guarantee by behaving like this.

I am also so frustrated with the lack of responsive customer service.  I have a new laptop (August 2018) and purchased the 3 Year Onsite Upgrade and am looking for a complete refund after encountering the worst customer service experience for a failed battery.  The actual service provider on this contract has been quite disappointing in lack of responsiveness or representatives without authority to do anything!  And try to reach someone at lenovo.  I have spent literally hours trying to get to the right person.  Maybe  through social media I can. Basically - how do I get a complete refund for the service contract?

I bought a brand new Lenovo Yoga 13 from a Lenovo shop in China. Windows 8 was pre-installed. In the shop, I requested (on 3 occasions) that Windows 8 be set for English. They told me that I could easily change the language settings when I got home.

However, when I got home I was unable to change the settings. After a quick google, I discovered that Windows in China is a special single-language installation named Windows 8 PRC. It is impossible to change the language.
Obviously, this is no use to me as I don?t speak China. I contacted Lenovo who passed me on to Microsoft. I contacted Microsoft who said that I had to go to Lenovo. Microsoft insisted that Lenovo could simply change the installation to a multi-language version. Here is part of the transcript from online Microsoft chat support:

?Since this is a preinstalled product or Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) This was bought by the manufacturer of your computer to Microsoft and they were the one who installed it as well on your computer. The manufacturer have the capability to change the installation to all language installation.?

I have been back to Lenovo (both the original shop and the after sales service office) several times but have had no success. On my latest visit, 4 days ago, I refused to leave the shop until I received a full refund or a multi-language edition was installed. In the end (after a lot of arguing via a translator), they agreed to install the multi-language version. They said I could collec... Read more

A:Microsoft and Lenovo - VERY poor customer service

I also have a Lenovo that I just bought here in the US (G700 model) and like it quite a bit. I cant speak one way or the other on Lenovo's customer service, since I've never dealt with them. I hate to say it, but your best bet is to download a Windows 8/8.1 iso from the Net (make sure it's multi-language/english first!), format your HDD, and then do a clean install and call MS. The downside is that they may or may not help you activate it. Good luck!

Lenovo has the worst customer service I have experienced in years.  This is regardless of industry or product.  My ThinkPad recently displayed a message indicating it had an internal defect and directed me to place a service call.  I called repeatedly -- at least 6X -- and the Lenovo phone system kept hanging up on me!  This happened over a 3-day period.  I finally gave up, turned the machine off, rebooted and was up and running again.  Is the problem still out there?  Probably.  But I can't rely on Lenovo to stand behind its product and help get it fixed. I received a new error message from Lenovo Solution Center today and was directed to contact support for assistance.  I tried this time to do a live chat.  After repeated attempts to log into this so-called service, I received a grayed-out live chat window which did absolutely nothing.  I shut down the window after 10 minutes and tried live chat again.  I received a grayed-out live chat window which has been spinning for 45 minutes and I'm still without someone to talk to about the problem.  I guess the answer from Lenovo is to make it so difficult for customers to reach them that they finally give up.  Saves on support expense.  I can't wait for this machine to die -- I'll take great satisfaction in throwing it in the trash ... where it belongs! I will never again use a Lenovo product and would strongly recommend anyone reading this entry ...

When i enquired last week at the customer service no. they told me itll come shortly, on enquiriing again after 2 days, they told itll take a week. This week i enquired again and now they are saying that it'll come only after 2 WEEKS since the part is not available in India.

Some years ago I came to the IBM/Lenovo brand and immediately got hooked up. From an IBM R61 (inherited from deceased friends) I was able to upgrade to a Lenovo W510 - a true workhorse! After two years of saving I intended to buy a W701DS to do professional photo work. However, no new machine was still available. So I opted for a ThinkPad P70. At the end of May 2016 I found a brand new Xeon-processor based P70 laptop on ebay USA which I bought. It was considerably less expensive than here in France and even less expensive than advertised on Lenovo US homepage (please note, I have little money?) At the beginning of June 2016 friends of mine brought the computer from the States to Paris, France, where I live. While setting up the computer I noticed that some pixels on the display were defective ? a major blow to my conviction that Lenovo builds the best computers in the world. I contacted Lenovo repair service and got instructions what and how to do to send the laptop to the appropriate service center (in France). Having sent it off on the 10th of June (including my coordinates ? address, email etc.) a few days later I got an email confirming the reception of the computer and also letting me know that repair would take a maximum of 5 working days!

I bought my Lenovo Y700 laptop last December and I started having battery issues around 6 months back. The battery randomly goes to zero even when the charge is at 30-40% and the charger is not connected. The battery of this laptop doesnt last more than 90 minutes even when full charged on moderate use(browsing/reading word docs). First raised this issue with Lenovo around July and did many troubleshooting steps but to no avail. Finally I ended up shipping my laptop to Lenovo depot for a week to get this fixed but even when the laptop was returned from the facility it had the SAME ISSUE!Called the customer care yesterday to ask for a Refund but they denied and asked me to send the laptop back to the facility for another repair. Horrible customer service. How is a customer supposed to keep sending their device back to their centers every other week? Asked the customer service people to escalate this to Customer Relationship team and they denied saying there system wont let them escalate the issue. They offered a warranty extension but then backed out of it saying we can only offer that when you send the device back to us. I cannot send the machine back without having a spare machine as it obstructs my work. This is by far the worst customer service I have ever experienced.

I bought a Dell XPS 8700 last Aug ('15) for $999 from Costco online. We had problems almost immediately with the PC not powering up (at all). but since it occasionally worked, we waited too long to actually return the PC to Costco (beyond 90 days). We also did not install the PC until Nov '15 because we bought 5 PC's at once and it took time to install them all.
We called tech support and after four hours of getting the run around and "trouble-shooting" via phone with Dell's non-English speaking tech support staff, they finally agreed to send out a technician. Technician replaced power supply and on/off button. We thought it was fixed but no. We didn't really call Dale back because we never had time to spend another three or four hours on the phone and schedule another technician just way too time-consuming for us to do that and run a business so instead we suffered a long barely using the computer and using other computers that were working fine instead.
Fast-forward the clock today May 30, 2016. The computer is still under warranty till August 2016 I call Dell and explain the situation, and that we've already unsuccessfully had a field technician trying to fix the problem and they were unable to do so.

Ordered a customized Lenovo X1 Extreme ( Touch UHD, 64 GB RAM, 1 Tb + 512 GB SSD) in November 2018 and received it on the 22nd December 2018. On arrival I noticed that the bottom shell cover was not "locked" in properly with the main shell even though the screws were tightened. I proceeded to gently snap it back into place. Then during the next 2 days I noticed extreme heatign and battery drain. Called Lenovo Tech support who looked into the issue and suggested that this was not normal and I would need to get a replacement. So, I called custoemr service and ordered a replacement while being allowed to keep the 'defective" unit until the replacement arrived. I was promised the replacement within 10 days whic finally streteched out to 22nd of January 2019. Well, I got the replacement and found out that it had exactly the same issue with the shell cover not locked in properly as the same unit EXACTLY in the same place - guess the moulds mut not be very good if the assembly line cannot properly close them. Also the screws seem to be loose in spite of my trying to tighten them - they freely rotate!  Then to make matters worse,  on close inspection of the screen (with the unit off) I noticed some strange marks in form of six rings on either side of the screen running vertically - similar to a small suction cup marks.

The sound with both speakers/ headphones on my laptop is constantly making "popping" sounds, and sometimes it even stutters - very aggressively and without putting any load on the laptop - even with a simple mp3 playback.I've tried EVERYTHING - Realtek / Lenovo / Windows drivers, uninstalled Windows, wasted so much precious time on it.This is the second damaged unit I get from lenovo in a month's time. I hope they can provide a quick solution for this problem, or else I'm returning this laptop and never buying / recommending Lenovo ever again.

Hi,

I'm having problems with my sound, i am getting a stuttering sound more and more frequently when watching videos online/dvds.

I have tried going into the device manager and updating my drivers in the sound section, but apparently they are up-to-date. Really don't know what to do next!

I have a Toshiba laptop, satellite series. I've had no joy on that website with support. I am using Windows 7.

Any ideas?!

Thanks!
 

A:Problems with sound when watching dvd, stuttering sound

Hmm well first of all Id make sure that you are experiencing this problem while watching dvds as well as online. The reason I say this is because if its just online it could be bandwidth and if its just the dvd, it could be the damaged media.

Assuming you are consistently having sound issues watching videos online and via dvd my first guess would be overheating.

Do you have the ability to play sound files without issues? Is the problem only with video?

Recently on playback of MP3's, videos, anything, the sound stutters every so often, the CPU usage can be at 0-1% when running foobar, or 1by1, or any other media player, and nothing else (nothing in the background anywhere) and still stutter, I don't understand it, before my sound worked fine, this is a new motherboard (approx 3 months old), its a Biostar NF61S Micro, using the onboard Realtek HD audio, Geforce 6600 PCI-express card, PCI 1x SATA RAID card (with 2 hd's running in raid0) and one sata drive single on the onboard nvidia sata controller (just going into detail here so people can help me figure it out) I'm running Windows XP x64 bit edition (I was running XP Pro 32bit for a while, didn't have the problem initially then it popped up just before I upgraded to x64).

I have no standard PCI cards installed, just my Geforce 6600 on the PCI-E x16 slot, and my SATA raid controller on the 1x slot, I'm using the onboard lan, I don't know why it stutters, but heres a list of things I've done so far to try and fix it:

I've defragmented my HDD, ran AV/Spyware checks, everythings clean, I disabled the onboard sound and I tried a different soundcard (albeit not a great soundcard, some cheap crystal soundcard that I had on hand, I do however know the card works as it works fine in other systems), I tried the soundcard in every PCI slot, no fix.

I also changed the DirectX acceleration on both the onboard and PCI card to try and ... Read more
