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 there, I have a Lenovo Yoga Book (Windows 10-edition). Which does not charge the battery, when plugging in but also in use. The taskbar indicates that the tablet is charging, but the battery still goes down (albeit much more slowly). If I shut Windows down, charging then starts correctly. Does anything else have the same problem? Has anyone managed to solve this issue? Thanks  -cycle63

I was wondering if anyone here had succesfully charged+USB hosted with the yoga book via a USB y cable or a charge and data hub? I'm an artist and I recently invested in a windows Yoga Book. I often have a USB drive, keyboard and mouse connected to the device via a powered USB hub. This is great, except for the fact I can't charge my yoga book while I do this- so the time I can spend working on projects that require both the keyboard and realpen is limited (and I like to really hunker down for many hours at a time. If I'm not using it it charges up to full in about 2 hours, which isn't bad in the great scheme but it's not always great).I know some devices support simultanious USB charging and USB hosting, but it's unclear to me if the yoga book's USB hardware in particular does. I checked the specification sheet for the intel xHCI chipset, but I'm not an engineer and the 500 pages didn't convey much to my tiny brain at all, which is why I'm asking here.

Hi all and happy new year!  I got a new Lenovo Yoga Book (Windows) and I'm shocked with the amount of problems i'm facing. Keep in mind i switched from Mac recently by getting first a Surface Book that works amazing + a $45 windows tablet that also works with no issues at all.  I'm literally shocked with the amount of problems i've had with Lenovo (wish I knew) and how bad their support is.  Let me start (keep in mind i'm not a windows epxert so if you have any solution please explain in details - really appreciated)  1. Split screen on tablet mode won't work. When i try to split screen the screen goes crazy (upside down) and then goes back to full screen (support told me that spil screen on tablet mode is a windows 8 feauture - LOL.)  2. Mic is not working all the time - many times when I restart it won't just work and therefore cortana doesn't work which I love  3. Laptop won't go to sleep. I close the lid and then i can still hear the notifications sound going on. the other night i charged it and woke up to 0 battery (i read the forum here and that many people have the same issue)  4. Also the problem of not waking up many times. I press the power button and nothing. it seems plugin it in might work - not 100% sure.  These are the main problems.I've tried all the basics, as updating windows, updating drivers through device manager, checkin on power/sleep settings etc.  If anyone can h...

Hi  I upgraded to Windows 10 and ever since then my laptop battery is not charging. I am a computer illiterate and travelling at the moment so can not even seek my IT departments help. The problem is that the battery shows 1% charge and when connected it to AC the laptop works well - as soon as I disconnected, it goes into hibernate. The symbol for AC connection does show so the laptop is detecting the charger. Along with this I keep on getting a battery calibration suggestion and says that I have not calibrated my battery in a long long time - although I do it every time it shows up. So I dont know what that is. Before the Windows 10 upgrade, my laptop on a 100% charge was giving me up to 6 hours of usage so I doubt there's anything wrong with the battery physically.  Would appreciate an experts advice on this. Please speak to me as you would to a 4 year old as like I said I'm completely computer illiterate!  Thanks & Regards

Hey, I just got my Lenovo Yoga Book with Windows 10 today, brand new. When I first booted the machine up there was no new user startup, it automatically logged me in to the "Administrator" account. The desktop has some generic wallpaper with bright red Chinese text one it, with programs on the desktop like WoaProc.exe, rework.cmd, Server_RunInPad.exe, shutdown.cmd, and TelephonyTool_Eng_V1.1.exe. There is also another user account, "WWTE." Upon researching this myself it seems that I have a test unit that Lenovo forgot to wipe. Is it okay for me to continue using? Should I just use it as is? Do I wipe the unit and reinstall Windows (btw, the unit itself has no recovery drive). Should I return it for a new unit? This is the first time something like this has happened to me, so any help would be appreciated.  Thanks, Jon

I bought this machine in May 2015.  I began to have problems with it not too long after but since I was abroad I coud not send it out.  I finally sent it out in April 2016 (right before warranty ended).  They fixed some of the issues and sent it back, sadly I had to go back before I could get my laptop in May 2016.  I came back about 4 weeks ago and have been using it again since. Today as I was working on it after I plugged it in (it was at 7% battery), I noticed it only charged to 99%, it didn't show 100% like it typically does.  I didn't think anything of it and just went about my work. When I changed stations and moved upstairs I plugged it back in and noticed it is not charging at all. Tried several outlets, and tested the adapter, all is fine.  The kicker is when I unplug the adapter the laptop shuts off too, even tough I was 70% battery life.  Then it takes 10 or more seconds of holding the power button to fire it back up. I am pretty distraught over this. Would be grateful for any advice on what is going on. This machine is basically new! I have used only a handful of months and now my warranty is over! I can't afford another one or repairs

This has been happening the last two days. I'll go watch a YouTube video in laptop mode and the screen will rotate so it'll be upside down when it goes full-screen. It does the same thing in tablet mode as well. I'm pretty sure everything is up to date and I've restarted the device, but the issue still persists. Even with Rotation Lock on, it'll still rotate. I haven't seen others with this issue which brings me here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. I recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 500 laptop, and I'm quite disappointed. When I plug in my charger, 9/10 times it starts to charge, then immediately stop charging, then charge again for a second. This results in never charging. Eventually it charges normally, but it's completely random and sometimes requires 5+ restarts. I need this laptop for school so taking it off for repair is hard for me but I will do it if there is no other way. I got a second charger from a friend and this still occurs, so the problem isn't with the charger. Anyone have any idea for a fix? Thanks

I like my yoga book but just lost my real pen and for the life of me cannot find any replacement anywhere .  Anyone knows if or when it would be once more available? Reached out to lenovo 3 times and no one seems to know anything.  Clearly they stopped it.  Without it the yoga book is useless and as it is only a few months old I am disappointed. If there are alternative to allow for both usage  (screen and paper) let me know. Thanks!

I've looked at the problems concerning the pen on the forums here and none of them seem to pertain to my problem specifically so I figured I would go ahead and ask. I have a Lenovo Yoga Book (the 64GB version). I reinstalled Windows 10 because it was locked out due to bitlocker, the Halo Keyboard wouldn't switch to the sketch pad mode so I reinstalled the drivers for that per the official instructions by Lenovo, and now the pen only interacts with the very top left hand corner of the screen no matter where I use the pen. I'd really like to start drawing again!Thanks in advance for any help I might receive!

Hi everybody, ever since a friend showed me the Lenovo Yoga Book online I've been in love with the device. I'm a big note taker and writer, and I think this could be perfect for me. However, I live abroad in a country where they don't sell the Lenovo Yoga Book. I'm soon going for a short visit to the Netherlands where I can finally see (and most likely buy) it, but I have a couple of questions that I can't seem to figure out from searching online (and I will not have enough time in the Netherlands to keep going to the shop ).  I am interested in buying the Android version. First of all, because I am buying it as a tablet and not a laptop; second because of the 100 euros price difference (yes, welcome to Europe...) and third because of the ability to take notes in tablet mode with the screen off. However, I struggle to find out how to digitalize handwriting notes and I read contradicting statements on this.  From handwriting to textAs I understood, you can't digitalize (meaning change handwriting into text) with the app that Lenovo installed (Note Saver). Is that correct? If that is the case, I am looking for a programme that can do this. Does it exist for Android? I've been looking into OneNote. Is it possible to write using OneNote and then convert the handwriting to text? Or do you know of any other apps? Evernote for example? Furthermore, when using those apps (especially OneNote), can you convert it do a .doc document?  Taking notesAnoth... Read more

According to their support staff the issue is that the wintab32.dll driver isn't loading. I've been searching for the driver on Microsoft's website, but I know the Yoga Book works a bit differently. Is there a version of the wintab driver for the Yoga Book, and will it still coexist with the keyboard?

Devo con rammarico pronunciarmi negativamente sulla scarsa funzionalitą e su una scarsa assistenza nel quale mi sono inbattuto nonostante che il prodotto sia in garanzia. Uso da qualche mese il Notebook Yoga book e l'idea di maneggiare file di sistema non mi ha mai sfiorato, piccoli bug saltuariamente ma nulla di significativo, poi dopo aver disinstallato una applicazione game domino il sistema si č riavviato e da quel momento si riavvia in continuazione senza riuscire ad accedere al desktop. Ho provato ad accedere al bios ma non vorrei effettuare un ripristino dell'apparecchio, anche se non saprei nemmeno come procedere. A meno che non voglia commettere un rischio il quale non voglio assolutamente compiere. Dunque vi chiedo come procedere per completare la corretta accensione del dispositivo. Qualcuno che conosca le operazioni presenti nel bios, oppure booh! Grazie
