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, If it's not one thing, it's another! I feel like my laptop bought in 2013 is falling apart on me now all of a sudden! When it pours, it rains, basically. Not happy. 1) the cover cracked at the hinges a few months after I got the laptop. Didn't think it was an issue. Wasn't an issue until number 2 happened. I then put black electric tape across the cracks on the cover.2) the display is separated from the cover. I put black electric tape all over it.3) the right hinge is popping in and out. I keep popping it in and out. Can't really open or close it without the hinge acting up, so can't use it as a laptop, only as a desktop. That is really annoying, if you ask me. and now, for the piece de resistance: 4) the AC converter is no longer working. Where do I find an AC converter for Lenovo Ideapad S510p Touch model # WB12764324? In the meantime, I'm borrowing a Lenovo Thinkpad AC converter. I need to return it soon, so I need a new AC converter for my Ideapad SOON. Thanks, much.

Hi Zeropatience50 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
After trying all advance recovery options and that you are willing to start fresh, you may want to factory restore it.
One Key Recovery (page 20) can be launch by pressing the Novo button (item8 page 74) while the pc is off to power on. Novo Menu should appear to offer System Recovery , one key recovery from initial backup. 
 
Hoping that the harddisk / OKR image is still viable , things should proceed as plan .
Else check on this option:
Booting to Recovery Environment with Windows 8/8.1 installation media or Recovery Drive/System Repai... 
 
Hope this helps.
Update us how it goes for you.

Hi Has1988, 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Can you describe how it would not shutdown completely?
 
Go to Control panel and choose Power options.
Under System Settings, click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.
Ensure Power button settings are set to shutdown.
Look at the Shutdown settings and uncheck the box for Turn on fast start up.
Save changes and shutdown.
 
Another option is to go to Device Manager.
Under system devices right click on Intel Management Interface and choose properties.
Choose the Power Managent tab and uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
 
Update us how it goes.

Couple months ago I purchased my new laptop, so far it's worked great, just getting use to Windows 8 is a bit tough. I frequently take my laptop to locations that have no power outlets available and so have to rely on the battery, typically I'm working with Video and audio files which put a big drain on the battery. I thought no biggie, I'll go buy a second battery from Batteries Plus, a local battery store, problem is they can't find any information on this laptop or the battery, so I went on the Lenovo website and I also can't find the information on my laptop which is the i3 series Ideapad S510p Touch with the 500gb hdd 6gb ram, Does Lenovo use different numbers for this system? I purchased the laptop from Office Depot and haven't checked with them yet regarding parts specific to this laptop because I think the company that makes this thing should have information about it. Not too encouraging to see the number of support complaints regarding Lenovo computers, but mine is working as expected so far, just need a second or larger battery and then I'll upgrade the memory and be good.Any one got a link to help? Thanks

Hello,My 3 year old Ideapad S510P/Windows 10 started with a boot problem a few weeks ago. The symptom was that the power light came on, the disk started to spin and then 2 seconds later it shut down with the power light extinguished. About 15 seconds later this repeated and after a few attempts it would boot normally.Last week it just stuck with the routine of trying to start - as above - and kept trying until I removed the battery.The disk has been connected to another PC and is functional. I tried a new memory module to no effect, and also tried the routine of removing the battery, pressing power a few times and then trying to boot. Problem is identical on battery, battery + external charge and external charge only.Nothing moves it beyond repeatedly doing the 2-3 second start-up loop.Anyone got a suggestion other than send it for recycling?Thanks,

I have a Lenovo Ideapad S510p, running on Windows 10, but I've had this problem since before I upgraded (I don't remember if it was Windows 7 or 8). Basically, my CD drive is nowhere to be found under My Computer, nor in the Hardware tab. When I press the button on the drive, though, the light lights up, but doesn't eject. Inserting a pin into the tiny hole beside the button (as suggested in another forum) did not help. Following the instructions here didn't help either; I couldn't find the registry entry. I believe it may be a software problem, but I have no idea how to fix it.

I know a few others have asked this question, but I haven't seen anyone report a solution or any follow-up to suggestions given. Here's what happened: my touch screen worked normally on Friday, then I went away for the weekend and didn't use my laptop and when I started working on Monday I realized my touch screen didn't work. Here's what I have done to try to fix it:1. Restarted the computer2. Disabled & enabled the HID-compliant touch screen in the Device Manager 3. Disabled & enabled the Generic PnP Monitor in the Device Manager4. Checked for driver updates for the touch screen (it said the most up-to-date driver is already installed)5. Tried to roll back the driver for the touch screen, but that button was greyed out, so it wasn't an option6. Unstalled the most recent Windows updates (there were a couple from the previous week)7. Unstalled the HID-compliant touch screen (but when I restarted the computer, there it was again)8. Talked to the IT guy for my work, who said I did everything he would have done, and suggested that I write a post on this forum. I saw a suggestion in another thread that the driver for the touch screen could be corrupted, but I didn't really see any instructions on how to unstall/reinstall the driver itself. I would like to try that if someone could tell me how that's done. Any other ideas? My Lenovo is probably 4-5 years old, Windows 10 for well over a year, installed a new anti-virus software a few months ago with no issues... Read more

This computer is not even a week old. When this first happened I saw that on the bottom side of the laptop were two switches, one for the battery and I guess one for the touch screen, by the way there is not literature on what so ever, and after flipping the switch the touch screen worked perfectly for about a day. Now it has stopped working again, but the switch is in the correct position. All of my drivers are up to date. I am so frustrated with this. the mouse works fine, it is just the touch screen. Please, someone tell me you have had a similar issue with this series of the ideapad and that you have been able to fix it, I really don't want to have to send it in as I use it everyday for work.

Hi eking4044, welcome to the forum,
 
     Here is your user guide:
http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_s410ps410ptouchs510ps510ptouch_ug_english.pd...
 
     Here is your HMM:
 
http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_s410ps410ptouchs510ps510ptouch_hmm.pdf
 
     Both of those "switches" on the bottom are for the battery. One is a spring loaded switch to open battery, after you push the other one into the open position. This is how you remove the battery, and have nothing to do with the Touch Screen.
 
      Did you delete any of the software that came with your system? The easiest thing you could do is backup your user files to a CD, or some external hard drive, then reset your system using the system recovery. See page 20 of the user guide for the recovery routine. Make sure you have a backup of your user files, before attempting the recovery, as it will set up your system like new. This should solve your problem, but if it doesn't, please post back with further information.

Hi all. About a week ago I started getting constant notifications that my Local Drive E was running low on space, and that I could "click here" to clean up some space. When I clicked, the Disk Cleanup would open for the E drive, but only with two folders which were both empty (Direct X Shader Cache and Recycle Bin). I downloaded the TreeSize app and it shows that there is one big Recovery file that was modified 8 days ago, which is taking up almost all the space. Problem is, I don't know what to do about it. When I try to open the E drive in the Windows Explorer it says the folder is empty, so I can't seem to delete that file. Help?

A:Ideapad S510p touch - Battery discharging too fast

hi Bhan168,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
To check the battery, can you try and run following:
1. Download and install BatteryCare and post the detailed info on the battery.
   - Sample info
 
2. Open an elevated Command Prompt (press the Windows key? +X and choose Command Prompt (Admin))
   - on the command prompt box, type powercfg -energy
   - once It generates the energy-report.html file, move this to your desktop and double click it. It will help if you can post a screenshot of the report or upload it (eg. Dropbox) so we can check if there's an app or a driver running on the background that's eating up power and making the battery drain much faster.

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

Few years back we bought a Lenovo IdeaPad S510P.  The hard drive failed and I had to get a new one for it.  Problem is I didn't make backup disk for the computer and I can't remember but don't think we got windows disk with it.  If we did we've misplaced them.  How do I go about getting this new hardrive formatted and the computer up and running again?  Will Lenovo allow me to download a replacement if I suppy serial number?  Will they mail me disk?  It came with windows 8.  If I do get that am I able to switch to 7 or 10 at no cost?  I'm also unclear on how this would be done.  I'm assuming if downloading I would have to make some kind of bootable thumb drive?  Any suggestions and links that would be helpful would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance

WIth an active warranty  then calling technical support would definitely send you some recovery disc or bootable drive. You can also check using your serial number here if your machine qualifies for the free recovery media download.
 
If you availed of the free upgrade from Microsoft from Win 8 to Win 10 or your machine have a Windows 7 downgrade rights from the original purchase then you can switch to that version at no cost else you have to purchase a product key from Microsoft.
 
A clean WIndows 8 image is free here to download and it would automatically activate as long as you use the same version of Windows that came with your machine. Drivers are also free here on the support website.
 
I hope this helps answer your query.
Update us how it goes best for you.
 
Regards

My S510p's headphone jack is damaged due to physical impact as depicted in the photo below, now the headphone plug keeps falling out (I have to hold it in place for it to work properly).  What do I do? Is the headphone jack on the main board in this model? Can it be repaired?  ?

RELEVANCY SCORE 59.2

To be plain and simple I got this laptop as a replacement to finish my college classes with. It connects to my home wifi (AT&T U-verse gateway), our college wifi (Eduroam by Clemson), and most other internet. It just won't connect when I visit my parent's home. I have tried their password, clicking the auto-connect on the router, resetting the router, restarting my computer, updating all my Windows 8 64bit stuff, updating my wireless driver, etc.The computer DOES connect via an ethernet cable. Interestingly enough my husband's Lenovo will also not connect. My iPhone and most other devices in the house connect to NETGEAR 33-5G even though the actual network is called NETGEAR 33. My own Lenovo however does not see any other network besides NETGEAR 33.
