I have had problems with the screen freezing whenever I use facebook or sometimes with other locations. I am very frustrated, especially since I have already gone through a recovery to clean the system. It did not help the problem!

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.

Hello everyone. I must say that it is a lovely laptop but the touch screen issue is making me very upset. I called  Lenovo and Microsoft support and those people doesn't even have a bit of knowledge. Many incertain process and lot of doubts in them. But it can't be a hardware problem. I bought it 1 week ago and when I opened the factory sealed box the touch screen worked perfectly! And a few hours later would stop working. No pen and touch input available, no hid compliant touch screen in device manager. I read almost every thread about this complain in this forum. Tried everything without success. The laptop is 99% good.. But without the touch screen is like trash. Hope someone can understand and if there's a solution, please tell me and I beg you send me specifics links or specifics procedures, please don't tell me "go to support.lenovo.com"  or "do a system recovery or windows 10 update", etc. Thank you.

After unpacking new Flex 3 1580, on first boot, renamed PC and clicked Restart.  Black screen.  Unplugged AC, held power for 30 sec, closed lid, plugged back in, opened lid, hit power, and it boots right up.  Okay.  Hit restart again.  Black screen.  Great.  Repeated previous steps, boots right up again. Updated all drivers, installed all Windows updates, flashed new BIOS, etc...still restarting computer causes black screen.  Did OneKey factory reset: no help.  Repeated previous fixes, no help.  Contacted Lenovo support - only offer was to mail in computer.  Now I realize anyone else would have sent it in, or returned it to the store long before now, but it was really nagging me that I couldn't figure out what was going on. I was getting very close to returning/exchanging it when: accidental discovery! After hitting restart (for the 9000th time), I bumped the screen with my arm.  FIRST SUCCESSFUL REBOOT.  **bleep**, okay.  After additional testing: restart works (every time) in tablet mode or tent mode, and 50% of the time if lid is actively being tweaked during boot. To summarize: something is causing it to think the lid is closed and boot to a (non-existent) external device.  Of course now that I've solved it, I think I should probably have the store replace it anyway.  Here's the question: Is this a firmware issue on all Lenovo Flex 3 1580s, or did this one just ship with a ...

As the subject says, the LED backlighting on the screen no longer lights up. The computer functions normally aside from that. I am forced to use an external monitor. Ive read there may be a BIOS update, but I do not run Windows. I am currently running Ubuntu. Is there a BIOS I can use that doesn't involve using Windows? Are there known issues with the VGA cable being severed or shorted out internally? I've already ordered a new VGA cable in case I have to replace it, however I'd rather not go through the trouble of replacing the cable if there is no need.

So I've had my ideapad for a bit longer than a year (less than a month since my year-long warranty expired, to be a little more exact), and just a couple days ago I noticed some cracking at the top of the screen, next to the camera. It has since progressed and now spans the screen. The touch screen still worked in places but now that the crack has reached the ede of the screen it's randomly clicking icons on the left side of the screen so I've turned the touch screen off.  I figured out the cause of the issue, since I haven't dropped it, because the crack originates from the location where I open the computer up from. That's right, over time opening of the laptop has actually cracked the screen. I'm very distraught at the crack crossing the laptop screen, but moreso I want Lenovo engineers to know that maybe the joints connecting the screen and the base are a little too tight. It's difficult to balance something that can be easily adjusted with something that will retain its structure when set at a certain angle, but maybe you should have a switch that allows the joints to change from a locked to an unlocked position. So in retrospect I'm wondering how else was I supposed to open the laptop, as apparently putting my hand at the top and flipping the screen up was not what the laptop was made for.

JUST BOUGHT THE LENOVA AND FANS RUNS SPORADIC.  have 5 days to return it is this normal.  I'm going to put negative reviews about this laptop due to fan issue.  Notice previous laptops and other Lenova's have this problem.  will ask the Amazon community about this issue

A:LENOVA FLEX 5 FAN NOISE SPORADIC JUST ON WEB BROWSER!!!!!!

I get that all the time. I blame bad code on some websites. I mostly run Chrome. When the fans spins up, I know something's taxing the processor. I can usually close a tab or two and it settles back down. And it varies by website. One day, a page at AVSForum.com won't do anything.. another day, an ad on the same page will start things ramping up. No-frills pages such as Gmail and this forum don't tax the processor much at all. I put on an adblocker which helps. 
 
What I really dislike is Windows 10's forced updates. I can be merrily typing along in Word without a browser open and the fan ramps up. I go into Task Manager and see that Windows is updating. A warning would be nice.
 
Anyway, next time it happens, hit airplane mode for a minute and see if it settles down. Or use Task Manager to identify what's taxing the processor. I had a Dell laptop I WISH had a bigger fan. After upgrading to Win 10, I had to replace the motherboard twice due to overheating. 
 
FWIW, I'm working with a i7 910 and an i5 920. Both pretty quiet with the browser closed.

Hi everyone, nice to be  a new member here. I'm currently using a Flex-15, that has been doing OK over the last few years, aside from ghost touches early on, then the touch screen died (still using 8.1).  Thinking of getting a Flex-3  80R40011US (i7/256 SSD/M940), but many reviews seem not so kind, and I am really torn about what to do.   I really like all of the features of the Flex-3, but reading of the black screen/shutting down issues, bad battery life, etc has me concerned.  The black screen shutting down is really a concern, even say after reading potential fixes here, and worried I will have a computer that can not be made to work properly...  Really don't want to get into a mess, right off of the bat, and can't afford to take a 15% restocking fee plus return shipping.  Is this issue over represented here, or do all owners experience this issue?  Is there an absolute 100% fix for this issue? Also would like to know about the display quality.  I had a 17" Y700 that had a golden cast, and despite a lot of fidling and BIOS update, it could not be corrected...  I hated it to be frank, and wonder if this type of issue, and/or other display issues are found in the Flex-3, with the 15.6" display? Thanks a lot for your help and insights, look forward to your replies.

Dear Lenovo, I purchased this device, Flex 3-1580, at Office Depot some time ago. At random times, it will do the following: Video goes black; Backlight remains on. Audio will stop as well. Can't tell if any fan is running or not, nor can I tell if HDD is running. Keyboard may or may not be lit, but is unresponsive. Only way to get out of it is to hold power button until it turns off, let things clear out for ten seconds, and restart. Here are the conditions under which, after some months of trying to reproduce the results consistently, this crash seems to happen: a) Does it regardless of power source, be it battery or AC adapter. b) Unit can sit on a table for hours, unused, and not crash; but it may crash - eventually (keep that in mind, it'll come in handy). c) Unit only seems to crash when I'm writing a Word document, working an Excell worksheet, or attempting something productive, like chatting with a Lenovo TS person to try and resolve this (which I've attempted three times, and all three times the thing has crashed mid-chat). I've read the forums about similar problems. I've updated the BIOS to the best of my ability. Installed the new ME software. I'm not updating the video driver because as far as I can tell that's impossible at my end, and there's no way I'm reinstalling Windows 10 if I don't have to. So let's revisit b) and c) above. Unit can sit on a table, perhaps just watching youtube or something, and nothing happens...

My Flex 3 1580 started to show messages about device being plugged into head phone jack (hence the on board speaker is cut off), and unplugged randomly, and then it just all stopped, there is no sound from speaker, but the sounds were fine if I plug in a head phone. I tried "troubleshoot" on Sound, it changed driver from Realtek driver to Microsoft High definition audio driver. The sound started to show up from speakers, but the volume keeps on fluctuating up and down, even when the volume slider keeps constant. Another troubleshoot was run, and somehow the problem was fixed. However, after some time (likely due to windows auto update), speaker becomes silent again. The Realtek driver was present in device manager.  I downloaded the most recent realtek driver from Lenovo support website, instealled it, still no sound from speaker (headphone works fine all this time). Tried to run trouble shooter again to install High Def Audio driver, the broken sound comes back to speaker. I plugged in a headphone, and the sound was normal, no volume fluctuation. But the speaker went silent again, when the headphone is unplugged.  Any one has any suggestion? I'm all ears. Art

Noticed how the keys are localized and aligned (Space, backspace, the center enter key, and the forward slash.) , as this maybe on the board level of the keyboard and not just the key itself. 
 
If the same failure would also happen in the BIOS then probable hardware issue should be reported to technical support team for in warranty repair.

I recently got a Flex 3 1580. It has both the integrated Intel 520 gpu and the nVidia 940M gpu.  Some of the games I'm playing for some reason don't seem to like the Intel gpu. I know for non windows store apps you can right click on the exe and tell it which gpu to use.   As far as I know you can't do that with the windows store apps. So my question is this.  Would it be okay to disable the Intel 520 in the device manager or would that cause problems with the machine or windows?

Hi, I was thinking of buying this hybrid:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16834332513 And then upgrading it with this:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820250085 I'm not clear on whether this voids the warranty or not? As close as I can understand it, it "may" if I mess something up? I've opened at least 100 laptops without messing anything up, so I'm confident I can do it without damaging anything, but I have also seen motherboards and touchscreens die in the first year, and don't want to mess up that part of the warranty for an SSD upgrade. I figured I'd make sure it powered on, then shutdown, crack it open, install the M.2 SSD, clone everything over, wipe the old SSD once into windows, and then finally perform the product registration. (Which uploads all your hardware specs? So they'd know everything was A-Okay with the new drive in place?) Thoughts? Anyone got more info on how strict they are with self service?
