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 was using my laptop last night when I got the notification that the battery was low. I just got a new power bank and I wanted to try charging the laptop from it. It didn't work so I decided to charge it the regular why. Before I managed to plug the charger in the screen went black but the power button still had it's light on. I figure that the battery was very low and waited about 10 minutes before I pushed it again, trying to restart the computer. Nothing happened, the power button was still on but the laptop still wouldn't start. I pressed and held and then the power button went off. After that, with the laptop still charging, I tried to turn it on again but it doesn't react. The white light by the charger port is on and not blinking anymore which probably means it's fully charged but other than that there is no sign of activity. I tried pressing the power button and holding up to one minute... nothing! I even tried restarting it via the Novo button, didn't work either. I've had it for 8 months and didn't have any problems with it up until now. Do you have any suggestions?

There are very little documentation for a lenovo yoga 900s.I would like to know if I can connect two displays to my lenovo yoga 900s over usb type c. I am looking for a hub that will work on my device and will include at least one USB 2.0, 2x HDMI (one can be VGA) and an ethernet port. Can you recomend any?

A:Does lenovo yoga 900s (900s not 900) usb type c supports thunderbolt 3? Can I connect two displays?

Hello and welcome,
 
I can't answer your question directly  but looking at the base spec, the implication is USB-C but not Thunderbolt, single external display supported.

Purchased a 900s from a friend. I always like a fresh install so formatted the drive and reinstalled windows 10. The machine works fine on the basic windows drivers but as soon as the proper video drivers are installed the screen flickers and goes crazy. I have tried about 10 different versions of the graphics driver but all give the same output with varying degrees of crazy flickering.  Any advice greatly appreciated.

Hello experts, I am suddenly having a problem with my Yoga 900s not sleeping properly. I will close the lid, and the machine will stay alert (power light steady and not blinking). Then, when I try to wake it, the screen will remain blank, and I have to hard reboot. I am perplexed as to what is causing this issue. The laptop worked last night, and as far as I can tell, no updates or programs have been installed since then. Power settings are all fine. Laptop is set to sleep when lid is closed. CPU and memory usage seem fine. I've tried multiple reboots. Please let me know if you've encountered this before. I'm at my wit's end since nothing has changed since yesterday. Thanks. - Archana

Hello everyone,
 
Thanks to Lenovo I had the opportunity to test and use the new Yoga 900S. As I also have Yoga 3 Pro I'll also compare the two.
 
Size, weight and build quality.
Yoga 900S is smaller and lighter (by 200 grams). However, they're both skinny 12.8mm thick.
The materials appear to be the same, but somehow 900S has much more metallic feel to it. It also feels more sturdy. It might be related to the smaller size of the 900S. The case on the inside has more of a leather feel to it compared to the rubbery feel in Y3P.
 


Keyboard:
 
I have mixed feelings with this one, because:
+ dedicated F~ key row - great!
+ 2 level backlight - love it too.
- much lower key travel compared to Y3P, but still comfortable enough.
? awkward placement of the right shift key. This could just be me, as I got used to Y3P's layout, which had the right shift key on the left side of the up arrow key instead of the right side.
 

(picture by Cnet)
 
Touchpad:
Slightly smaller, but still comfortable to use. I have no remarks. It does its job. It happened couple of times that the cursor jumped to the bottom right corner when I tried to click using left index finger while swiping with the right index finger. Not sure what happened, but it was so minor I'm suprised I still remember it did!
 
Screen:
The model I received has a Full HD screen (1920 x 1080). I've seen 1440p being mentioned around the net, but this particular model definitely has a FHD screen. I ... Read more

Hi, my Yoga 900s has D-drive (named LENOVO) and it includes drivers as well as installation files for two applications (McAfee and YMC, Yoga Mode Control). I'm thinking of deleting this part and repartitioning my harddrive to increase the size of C-drive. I found some information suggesting that in this case OneKey Recovery migt not work, but I did not find any definitive about it. Does any of you know whether there is indeed harm on doing what I'm planning?

The trackpad might break me here... it's absolutely terrible if you're the kind of user that likes to use single finger click and two finger right click exclusively. You can set it up for this behaviour but it basically disables the entire bottom third of the trackpad.

A:Lenovo Yoga 900S - trackpad behavior

Are there tactile click locations for left and right click in the bottom corners?  Or is it totally "tap" sensing?  Mine shipped out yesterday and this was one of my concerns.  Another option that just went on sale, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet, has dedicated buttons like a traditional ThinkPad.  It's much pricier for the same hardware, though, and I like the Yoga flexibility compared to a Surface type setup.

6 months ago I bought a Lenovo Yoga 520 14IKBR, and now it won't charge any more while turned on. If we plug it in, the led goes white - and starts flickering orange after a few second, the computer seems to think that the power is not plugged in, and the battery doesn't charge. However, if we first switch off the computer, and then plug it in, it does charge normally. I guess therefore that there is no hardware problem, but a software issue.Somewhere on the internet we found a similar story, and according to them the solution would be a BIOS update. And indeed, the computer says there is a BIOS update waiting to be installed.However - because the computer thinks that the power is not plugged in, the BIOS update refuses to install - 'please plug in power'... So ... first question is of course if that BIOS update would indeed solve our problem. If not, is there another solution? If yes, how can we install that BIOS update safely while the computer thinks it is on battery power?

Hi guys, I had a Yoga Pro 2 but I got it replaced by Lenovo under warranty because it was having some major major issues. They sent me a Yoga 900 and I am already noticing problems with its connection to my bluetooth mouse. I used this same bluetooth mouse on my Yoga Pro 2 and it always connected fine without any problems at all but with my Yoga 900 it seems that the mouse will be connected for 5 minutes max and then the Yoga 900 will no longer recognize the mouse. Any help is appreciated, this is very frustrating and I have had been having a lot of problems with Lenovo's devices. Their warranty is great but I am getting tired of so many problems for such expensive machines.

Similar problem here.  Yoga 900 just a couple of months old, and I decided to try a bluetooth mouse.  It connected and worked just fine for a couple of minutes and then stopped.  Windows still says the mouse is paired and connected, but it doesnt work.  Turn bluetooth off, turn mouse off, remove mouse from bluetooth devices, re pair mouse and it works for a couple of minutes and then stops.  Lather, rinse, repeat.  I'm hoping this is a Windows problem and not a Lenovo problem, but if anyone finds a solution I would love to hear it.

My laptop suddenly stopped charging. I've checked the adapter, it still provides the USB power to charge my mobile phone. I can also charge my phone from the residual charge in the battery. So the remaining possibilities are that the charger isn't producing 20V power, the wire has gone bad or there's a problem within the laptop.  The replacement charger costs a pretty penny and will take time. Is there any way of checking if the wire or the charger block are working or not ? The alternative of taking it to Lenovo sucks, can't work for a while. ThanksRahul

A:Lenovo Yoga Pro 3 1370 not charging

First, is it still under warranty? Many are.   If it is, call support.   Do you know anyone with another machine where you can borrow an adapter?  The Yoga 700 and Yoga 900 use the same sort of plug except they have a max power draw of 65W.  The 700 and 900 don't work right on the Y. 3 pro's 40-w adapter, but your machine is OK with the larger one.  I looked at the adapter and the power cord and  it would be difficult to test the output with a meter, without shorting something out.  I have all sorts of tools and meters, and I takeapart and fix machines, so if it were mine, I would open the machine and pick up the input leads from inside and test with a meter.  If you are not comfortable doing that kind of thing, don't risk making it worse.  DON'T OPEN UP AND WORK ON A MACHINE THAT IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY.
