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.)

How did you try to do the restoral? Did you attempt it via the One-Key Recovery button or did you use the factory restore discs that you created when you received the initial notification during setup?

Hi all,
Having more BSOD's on a second Lenova A63 desktop thats maybe 3 months old. Bought 4 machine total, 2 have had these issues and 2 have run flawlessly. Same programs installed. Windows 7 Pro 32bit, AMD Athlon II X2 processor, original OEM OS with no re-installs. AVG 2011, Activant Eagle 4 Windows retail app and thats about it. Never had Acronis on this one . Today I removed all obvious bloatware from Lenova hoping that may stop them (like IBM Thinkcentre and their Power Management Tool ((still have W7 version)). BSOD came again....ugg.
First post I sent you guys dealing with machine #1 gave some good tips. I tried everything you suggested to no avail on #1. Hoping the dumps I am posting today for machine #2 sheds more light on what seems to be a flaw with these Lenova machines. Video cards? Motherboard?
Thanks Shawn

My mom recently bought a Yoga 910 and has been using it for about a month now. Today, she was just using her ultrabook (while charged) before picking me up from uni. When we arrived, we had dinner then when she tried to turn it on, it wouldn't work. She is confident it was fully charged before she shut it down. Aside from it not starting, there is also no indicator whether or not the ultrabook is gaining any power when plugged in through the charger.

A:G70-80 - NEED TECHNOLOGY HELP WITH LENOVA LAPTOP

Hi RabbitKit232 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Would you have the machine number?
Your query may be similar to this discussion .
 
"The amount of video memory your computer has is dependent on the amount of pre-allocated memory set for your system plus the Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT). DVMT dynamically allocates system memory for use as video memory creating the most efficient use of available resources for maximum 2D/3D graphics performance."
 
If you do not have the options on BIOS , OEM presets on designated RAM are already configured by manufacturer as optimal for the system model. 
 
Adding physical RAM would not increase would not increase dedicated video memory. 
More about this here on the Intel graphics FAQ :
" Adding more physical memory may or may not increase your graphics memory. For example, adding more memory would not make a difference if your computer is configured to use a fixed allocation method for the graphics memory. "
 
Updating the Intel Graphics drivers may allow settings customized as others may increase performance gains by increasing virtual memory instead and or playing the games in lower resolution. 
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

Hi

Think I need to replace my adaptor for Lenova laptop 3000-c200 series as its not charging battery, have a new battery too so assume its not that

The existing one has a 20v output & 65w power.
Have checked out credible sites to purchase one and the exact match retails approx 50 on Lenova website, whereas one listed A..z..n website is being sold for 15, same 20v output but 90w power.Says it's compatable for my make and model.

Am I safe to purchase the less expensive one or will the extra wattage blow the b.....y lid off !!

And am I right in thinking that a device will only draw what power it needs and no more?
Thanks

I am trying to fix a Lenova T60 Laptop that will not start due to a fan error message. The Laptop starts for 2-3 sec while the fan is making a really loud noise, then it says fan error and turns itself off. Could this be due to dust in and around the fan. I was told that it was running very warm the last few days prior to this happening. To clean the fan effectively, how do I get to the fan. Take the Keyboard off or unscrew all the screws underneath the laptop. Is there a chance that the fan will be no longer working correctly? Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

The first time it has happen I have been able to use the "remove battery" method to where I remove it and re-insert it back in, this has work the first time when I had this issue but when I had to update windows 10 again the issue returned and I have tried the "remove battery" method but to no avail. I was hoping to get some clarity with this issue, thank you.

Hi, all, first post here, so bear with me. I've had this Y580 for a few years now, and it's been functioning rather nicely throughout, just with consistently high temperatures. A few days ago, the performance abruptly dropped considerably, and so I checked my temperatures. They were absolutely ridiculous, even for what this thing averages; I was doing around 95 degrees on the GPU, and it was eternally downclocking to 135MHz. I thought it was just a cooling issue at first, and tried everything, but then when playing around in Energy Management, I noticed something really strange. If I hit the dust removal button, the fan wouldn't change in sound at all. In fact, I could barely hear the fan. I opened up the back cover and inspected the fan. While it was running, it was running at a ridiculously low speed, and would not speed up no matter what I was doing. This is a serious issue; have any of you encountered this before? Anyone have good suggestions for how I should go about dealing with this?

Hi ThunderBIrd2678 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Manual cleaning using compressed air can , checking the gears itself if there are strands slowing it down and reapplying thermal paste ensuring contacts are good as initial step.
 
Uninstalling and reinstalling the energy manager tool from the support site  under power management can help.
 
Since fan system is still mechanical in nature, as wear and tear may now be affecting its performance, you may decide on replacing it if you have neccessary tools and skills using the manual (page 58) as guide.

I just bought a Lenovo Yoga 2 pro and installed windows 8.1 by itsef. During Windows 8.1 initial setup I was able to use keyboard to type in PC Name, but after that the keyboard and touch pad was not working/no any response any more. After Windows 8.1 lunched the keyboard also no any response. I have to use touch screen soft keyboard. But when laptop in BIOS mode (turn power off and press a small round button next to power button) the keyboard was working fine. So I think that the keyboard hardware is ok, but some thing iwas wrong with Windows 8.1 software issue. I also un-selected all on Easy of Access->Keyboard section in Windows 8.1. Did anyone has same experience and know how to resolve this problem? Thanks a lot!

Sounds like the laptop is thinking you are in tablet mode and the keyboard/touchpad are being disabled. Try moving the screen into tablet mode and back. See if that fixes it. You can also try to run an update on the Lenovo Transition software (it is currently at version 2.0.13.8221). This is done from the About tab of the software (when you run it from the start/search box).

Hi,  I recently upgraded my laptop to the Yoga 3. This initally looked like a great decision but boy was i wrong!!!Initally encountered the keyboard issue after 2-3 months. Went through all the steps online and in the forums to resolve,RebootChecked DriversStarted in BIOSConnect external USB Tries turning on the backlight to via lenova setting to check if anythign worked on keyboardRe0-installed drivers - note: the were already the latest drivers...... After all that and more everything turned out to be hardware issue when returned to the shop. Needless to say been optimistic and prob as it was a sunny day in Ireland i decided ok i will get it replaced with another Yoga 3. Whats the chances of this happening again..... Famous last words....Brought it home and bear in mind i did not upgrade to windows 10 this time the same thing happened. Long story short brought it back to shop and the replaced again with yoga 3....Now yet again after 2 months the laptop keyboard does not work again... AT this stage feel like the product design should have just removed the keyboard in the first place and market it as a tablet.  Oh BTW; screen rotation is another issue as does not work. Really feel at this stage i would be more productive going back to writing with a pencil and checking out books from library that using this laptop anymore.  Now that my rant is over.... depp breath in..... Can anyone help :-)

First off I would like to say that I very much enjoyed my laptop right up until last night. I had the machine since early 2013 and it worked great, best laptop for gaming I have ever used. However I noticed that the last few months the battery cannot hold a charge (for menial tasks) and the fan or gpu was making an odd noise under load. This began to bother me so I took it upon myself to do a battery gauge reset, to see if maybe the battery was just mis calibrated. After this I decided to check the fan and clean out any dust from the vents and inside the fan, as I've noticed it having to work harder than normal under load, and Temps have been higher than normal. I put everything back together, put the motherboard back in, and plugged everything back into the motherboard, but now the laptop won't turn on. What's weird is I have done this a few times before and the laptop has always been fine. This has really bummed me out, I really liked this laptop. Now I don't have a computer to play games on or do anything. I also rely on the laptop for school. I am not sure what to do. I am guessing that the problem lies in the motherboard, and I know the laptop is out of warranty as I have had it awhile. Any idea how much it would cost for a repair like this? I am a poor college student and I don't know that I could even afford a repair let alone a new computer. Why I am frustrated: thing is, about 2 years ago I got a keyboard bezel replacement from Lenovo and sen...

I am turning to the community to find out if anyone has installed 16GB of memory in their Y580. Lenovo's manual and website says that 8GB is the maximum supported, but some posts have indicated that it might support 16GB. I need to hear from someone who has actually tried 16GB of RAM in their Y580 as to whether it worked as this is the only thing holding me back from purchasing the Y580.












Solved!

A:Y580 16GB RAM Support

According to Crucial on their site the max is 8 GB for the Y580 And since Lenovo says the same,i would go with that. However i would be interested to hear otherwise.

Hi,i need your help to figure out how to repair my Y580,first of a video of my problem: gif of broken displayIt happens with the start of the laptop and sometimes gets better for a few seconds.The angle of the display doesnt seem to have an influence on the problem. Do I have to replace the whole display or could it be a smaller malfunctioning part?And where can i find a serial number for a proper replacement part? Thanks in advance!

I'm getting low battery life from just the Power Saver Mode (about 2 hours).The Y580 was advertised to last as long as 5 hours. What configurations are people using to get this long of battery life?

Y580, Win10 I just purchased a used Y580 cheap because it has non-functional USB 3.0 ports. The USB 2.0 port works fine.When I plug in a USB cable, it doesn't register anything, as if there's no power to the ports. Which leads me to believe it's not a driver issue...but I could be wrong about that. My thought was that the controller on the motherboard might be bad, but I don't know much about laptops, honestly. I'm more of a desktop guy when it comes to hardware. I'm not even sure if the USB controller is onboard or a separate board in the laptop. Any ideas on how to fix this, or am I just out of luck? Thanks. - Brian
