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.)

I bought the Yoga 720 13IKB Type 81C3 - Model 81C3005LPG - last week to use it for photo edit and I noticied that the screen have strong yellowish tint.I tried to find a calibrated ICM (or ICC) color profile on the vga_drivers folder but could not find it.Also tried to use the windows 10 color calibration tool with no satisaftory results. I'm really disapointed and before start to tell the world on photo forums that this laptop is not suited to photo edit because of this super strong yellowish tint screen I decided to ask here if any members of the comunity or the Lenovo support team have any ICM color profile file that minimizes it.Note that this model have the BOE06FA panel and not the LG (like some USA models I believe).Thanks in advanceHugo Veríssimo

Looking for the part number and where I can buy a screen replacement for my Yoga 920-13IKB Laptop (ideapad) - Type 80Y7.

Welcome to forums.
 
Have you tried parts lookup and then Lenovo Encompass store?  Don't post you serial number online.  If you input at the parts lookup site you  should be able to confirm the part number.  I input just generic 920-13ikb at parts lookup.
 
I'm not saying price is great but they do have it at Encompass store.

I have a Yoga 14 (Type 20FY) running Windows 10 64-bit, and my screen works fine in notebook, stand, and tent mode, but turns off the second I rotate it past tent mode and into tablet mode. I heard this may be related to a (relatively) recent Windows 10 update, but I honestly don't know. My computer is out of warranty and I have no income at the time, so I'd love to be able to fix this without taking it to a professional.

Good evening I am hoping that we as a community can get this issue solved. Lenovo must do a recall on the Yoga 730 for the very clear and apparent screen flicker problem that has affected 100s and possibly 1000s of people. This is an obvious design flaw that causes the hinge design to cause stress on the display cable attached to the motherboard. I have called Lenovo support but because the warranty is past (of course) they cannot do anything. If this was a random issue it would make sense. But since this is a very common issue that warrants some form of recall I must share my frustration as the Yoga 730-13IKB Laptop (ideapad) - Type 81CT is othewise a fine computer. Join me in calling for an official response from Lenovo so that they will fix this problem that is clearly their fault. Thanks

My Yoga is randomly going into tablet mode when I move the lid. All drivers and BIOS are up to date. I'm noticing it most often when I open the lid after closing it while the laptop is powered on. The fingerprint reader still functions, but the keyboard is unresponsive. I recognize that it's going into tablet mode because the keyboard backlight turns off and the keyboard stops sending input, and Windows shows the "auto-rotate on" message. I normally open the lid to about a 90 degree angle, maybe a touch past that - not nearly far enough to where tablet mode should be kicking in. I have to play with the lid, moving it back and forth by small increments to make it realize it's not nearly positioned far enough back to be in tablet mode. Sometimes I have to push it all the way back to ~180 degrees, and then bring it back to ~90 before it realizes it. Extremely annoying.

Having an issue with my X1 Yoga  riinning Win10 64-bit and all firmware & drivers are up to date. I often plug in an HDMI screen to my machine and when I do and step away for a few mins the screen goes blank to save power etc. When I return and click these or hit a key the backlight on the laptop comes back on but no image is displayed on either the laptop nor the HDMI monitor. If I unplug the HDMI cable then the laptop screen comes back perfectly and then I can plug the HDMI back in and get the image back on my larger monitor. This seems much different issue then the "blank screen" I read up on and appears to be a detecing from sleep state issue in the driver etc. Anyone else have this? Any fixes for this as I'm plugging the HDMI in/out/in 5 times a day or more... This never occured in the past so appears to be an update issue.

A:Extra mSATA on LENOVO 81C3 Lenovo YOGA 720-13IKB

Hi Helenvds1982,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Checking with the hardware manual (page26) and specs sheet shows that there is no extra slot for another mSATA on the model.
 
An option for replacing the storage with a larger (up to 1TB PCIe 3.0 x 4 NVMe m.2 2280) capacity can be a solution for needed storage space.
 
I hope this helps answer your query.

I've had my Yoga 2 Pro Laptop for a few years now.  For the past month, it randomly goes into tablet mode, despite it being in the "Don't ask me and don't switch" tablet mode.  This disables the keyboard and mouse, and the screen just rotates around as if I'm rorating my computer in circles.  I have to do a hard reset to get it back to laptop mode.  And within 15 minutes after rebooting, its back in rotating tablet sadness.   Thanks for any advice you might have!

So my yoga 2 jumps back and forth from laptop mode to tablet mode for no reason at all. The slighest tap or just randomness will change the mode of the compter. I have gone in the display settings and selected the option that says something like "do not ask me and do not switch modes" for my display, but it still does it anyway.  Once it is in tablet mode, the only way to get it back is to push the power buttom till its sleeping, then wake it up.  Also potentially unrealted, or maybe not, the screen has a random habit of flikering unprovoked. Thank you for your ideas at a solution in advance!

I have a basic model of the YOGA 300 (11 BY).  Due to size limitations of the eMMC drive, I couldn't upgrade to windows 10 (not enough disk space). So I downloaded the windows 10 installer/ISO to a 32gb SD Card, and upgraded from there.. actually (probably a mistake in retrospect) I did a clean install.. Windows 10 runs with no problems, and I downloaded./installed all the Lenovo drivers for windows 10 for this machine. Unfortunately I now have two issues: 1. When I flip the screen into tablet mode, the laptop doesn't seem to realise, and so I don't get the auto-tablet mode that I would expect? 2. Even with all the Lenovo drivers for this machine installed, I do not get any touch-screen response at all.. only mouse driven. Any help would be appreciated. P.S:  Anyone with the same version of YOGA 300 with an eMMC who wish to gain more drive space?  You can buy a cheap USB 3.0 slimline USB disk (because the SD Card sticks out a bit) and create a VHD which gives you a second "real drive"... this was particularlly useful when wanting to store my dropbox/onedrive sync locations!

Dear Community, Dear Lenovo, For a while now my screen keyboard in tablet mode doesn´t work. Always when I´m in tablet mode and try to tipe something in you can see how the system wants to automatically open the screen keyboard, but it´s just a transparent bar across the bottom third of the screen.Due to that issue the yoga is just useless in tablet mode, which is really annoying, because obviously that´s one of the reasons you buy that laptop. Hopefully someone can help me soon, maybe someone had the same problem and has already fixed it. Kind regards

When I'm using my laptop in tablet mode and I touch a text entry box to try to type something in, the on-screen keyboar activates, but is essentially invisible - I can only see the outline of where the keyboard is supposed to be. As a result, I can't type anything while I'm in tablet mode, which is rather bothersome.

Hello, I have a pretty new Yoga 920-13IKB.  The USB Type A port just stopped working out of the blue yesterday.  I tried the normal stuff like deleting the usb entries in device manager, disabling fastboot and trying different devices, but nothing is recognized.  I have a USB C to USB A adapter and when I plug a USB A device into the laptop via the USB C port/adapter, that does work fine.  The USB A port does charge my phone though, so it's not totally dead. Anything else I can check on the software side?  It certainly seems like a hardware issue to me. As far as warranty support, I do have Microcenter nearby.  How does support with them work?  It looks like the USB A assembly is a separate board and is not part of the motherboard, so that should be easily replaceable.  Does Microcenter carry parts like that or do they still send it out for that? Thanks!

Hi there! My 2 month old yoga 720 occasionally does this weird thing, when turning the screen from laptop mode to tablet/stand, and back. The screen sometimes glitches out with grey stripes vertically filling the whole screen, or it just might go black. It seems like a bad connection to the mb or something, so the opening or closing of the screen twists or yanks a wire or something. This is of course irritating and now I'm not overly confident in using the laptop to it's fullest potential, fearing that I'll break something. So is there any self remedy for the issue, or can I open the machine and check if something is pinched or something? Specs:Make: YOGA 72015IKBType: 80X7BIOS: 4MCN25WWV1.10

Hey there, after hours of tinkering and countless threads with no obvious answer I have managed to install Ubuntu 18.04 in UEFI mode. Touchpad and Active pen (v1) work. Onscreeen keyboard pops on touch input, keyboard lock in tablet mode and screen ratation work as well. Many of you asked these questions without answers. Thank you nameless developers who made it work.  It's not a definite guide. I want to show you how I did it. I will make it short, it will be chaotic enough. I will not cover the basics and assume you are starting from windows 10. 1) To create USB installer get Rufus. I have used 3.0 USB pendrive, Kingston Datatraveler 100 G3. During Rufus configuration set partition scheme to GPT. When you are ready click start. Window will pop, choose ISO.2) Get to the UEFI configuration in Windows 10. Under Configuration tab select SATA setting to AHCI (It will brick your windows 10, there are guides about it if you care). Go further to Secutity tab and select "Reset to Setup Mode". Go to Boot tab and set it to Legacy Support.3) F10, select whatever and your Live version or insaller should start.4) After you finish the installation you can paste in[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo "EFI boot on HDD" || echo "Legacy boot on HDD"to check if your system is using UEFI.5) If the output was positive you can now go to the UEFI again and select "UEFI Only" boot option.systemctl reboot --firmware-setup Happy lurking,Rudenick

Hi all, I've noticed that my Yoga 910 is not auto rotatingwhen I set it to tent mode nor to tablet mode. Not only it doesn't auto rotate but it also keep the keyboard active... Not sure if this is a faulty sensor problem or just some bug. I've tried to follow the solutions presented in other topics but without success even tried a system restore but the problem is still here. I can't really identify which update has created this situtation but I know that when a couple of months ago it was still working. I also have the impression that more are affected, so could Lenovo release a patch to troubleshoot and solve such an important issue for a Yoga product (basically there is no Yoga functionality with this problem). Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!

I have recently purchased and installed a new battery for my old laptop hoping I could get away from the wall with it as it's previous battery had died some time ago and in order to use the computer I had to have it plugged in like a desktop. After installation I booted the laptop up while plugged into the wall. The battery was displayed as charging. I believed this was a good sign. I let it charge till it read "100%" and then unplugged it to test the battery. The moment I unplugged it from the charger the screen went black... But the computer did not die or shut off. The fans were spinning and I could turn volume up or down using my keyboard and find it different from before unplugging. It's as if the screen is just off. Like turning a monitor off on a desktop, you still have full access you just can't see anything. To answer some people's questions in advance; yes, I am sure it's not a brightness problem. The screen is 100% black and changing brightness on my keyboard will change the brightness but not visibly, only after I plug the charger back in will I see any difference.
