Lenovo Erazer X315, Constantly drops Wifi.

Q: Lenovo Erazer X315, Constantly drops Wifi.

Good Evening, I recently purchased a Lenovo Erazer x315 for my girlfriend which worked fine for the first week. Now however the Wi-Fi keeps dropping connection, though it shows it?s still connected and she has to manually disconnect and reconnect to the Wi-Fi. It has disconnected her 4 times in the last hour as I've been trying to google solutions. She did the scan via the diagnostics page on this website and nothing failed. We thought it could be her router taking a dump, but her old laptop has been able to maintain a connection throughout her disconnects. The tower is primarily used for Teamspeak, Archeage, Minecraft, YouTube, FB, and a few artsy programs she has. Don?t know if any of that would affect it. Any help would be appreciated, being that I'm in the military, gaming is our main source of keeping in touch. The constant DC's are kind of aggravating to say the least.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have a Lenovo Erazer X315 (Windows 10), and in the AMD Radeon Settings window, if I go to the System tab, one of the 4 new tabs at the top is, "Hardware  AMD Radeon(TM) R7 Graphics (Primary)."  Another one is, "Hardware  AMD Radeon R9 360 (Disabled)."  When I look at the numbers for each one under its tab, the R9 360 is much, much better.  But it says it's disabled.  I can't figure out a way to enable it in the program.  Why is it disabled and how do I enable it?

I cannot get my desktop to connect to the internet. It keeps telling me my router needs to be reset but its not fixing the issue. Its had issues in the past but eventually would work after resting the router and disabling/enabling the connection. I have no idea what else to try. I honestly would never recommend another Lenovo product to another person or buy another one myself. The support is awful.  Nevermind I got it to work without Lenovos awful tech support.

Hi branb,
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
Looking at the HMM, page 39 of this model GPUs like Nvidia's Geforce GTX 760, Geforce GTX 750, Geforce GTX 745 are tested to work with your system and also regarding processor upgrade I can only find AMD processors, HMM page 37 compatible with it. And for more insight please check this thread with similar discussion.

It's a question that many have asked before, but I can't find any proper solution to. I have an Erazer X315, and the keyboard that was shipped with the computer has the Fn key on the lower left, with the Ctrl key to the right of it. I have already tried looking for the option to switch it in the bios, as well as downloading multiple programs that could remap the keys. As none of these have worked, I am desperate for help from someone who has a working solution.

I have a new Erazer X315 Desktop computer. The graphics card is an AMD Radeon R9 360 2GB. I bought the computer because I wanted to run software that was supposedly compatible with the R9 360. Unfortuantely the software won't recognize the card and the software manufacturer now says, sorry our software is not compatible with that card. My question is, can I use a different graphics card in that computer. I had a chat session with someone, not in technical support, who says I can only use an R9 series card. My question is, is that right? And if so why? Doesn't the computer have a pci bus (the lenovo solution center snapshot says the network card is pci-E)? Why wouldn't a different graphics card work in the Erazer when most computers can use any card?  When the software manufacturer was trying to help me they asked me to run a 2 line script:regsvr32 atimpenc.dllregsvr32 atixcode.dllIt produced errors, can't file the files. That's when they said the card is not compatible with the software.  What are the implications of that? Most graphics cards would use those dll's but R9 doesn't? Are they part of an api? Does it have implications for using a different card in the computer?   Thanks, Mike

Hi Mike,Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.As I understand that you have query regarding GPU for your Erazer X315

Hello, My Erazer X315 has been having a couple of issues I think may be related. The more recent one is where, when my computer goes to screen saver, it occasionally freezes and requires a hard shut down. This will not happen and work fine more often than not. But when I'm listening to music (Spotify) and this happens, the music turns into a loud buzzing noise pretty much right when the screen saver comes on. The other issue happens when I've been watching videos or playing games for a long time. Occasionally, groups of large squares start flashing on the screen. It's as if a 3x5 (size differs) group of pixels was blown up in size and shows random colors that flash. It can often be removed by exiting out of full screen, reloading, or closing the program and reopening. It usually persists until I do one of those things. This happens mostly after a couple hours of watching mlb.tv or playing League of Legends. I have long suspected that my video card was faulty but Lenovo's Hardware Diagnostics Simple Scan found no errors. Often times keeping the computer cool keeps the pixels from happening. But I can't find any pattern about the screen saver issue. I've updated drivers, ran hardware diagnostics on the video card, memory, and hard drive. I've spent a couple of weeks searching for a solution online with no luck. Is anyone familiar with this? System: Lenovo Erazer X315Video card(s) listed in Diplay Adapters: AMD Radeon R9 260 and AMD Radeon R7 GraphicsProcesso... Read more

All,
I have an Erazer X315 (Machine Type Model: 90AY000CUS) on Windows 10.  The SATA Controller was switched to IDE from AHCI.  It ran a bios update now the machine wont start.  The power will kick on the HDD, and fans will kick on at 150% after 5-7 seconds.  I switched my monitor to the onboard graphics (vga) but still do not get a display (anything). I have removed the redeon GPU and reset the CMOS through the battery and the jumper. Again no display.  I have tried multiple monitors as well.  Im sure this is due to the AHCI being switched to IDE, but I cant return to the bios to switch it back.  Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

I've always thought so highly of HP and as such, decided to purchase an HP laptop - an HP Envy 15-K233ca Notebook. I have had some issues from the start and one in particular, is making for a rather unpleasant experience. The wifi connection keeps dropping.  It drops when the system is put in sleep mode, when I surf the net and even after a reboot.   I walked through the issue (and a few others) with HP's  help desk this evening and after 2 hours was met with the same problem.  I am now having to reboot the computer and troubleshoot to try and maintain a wifi connection.  This is my first experience with an HP Laptop and I'm disappointed.  It's unfortunate, but I may have to return it.  I'll be walking over to Apple for a replacement.   If someone from HP can resolve this for once and for all, it would be helpful. Otherwise, I will have no choice but to return the unit. Note:  I've noticed that others experience the same issue.  I requested that HP's Help Desk install drivers to resolve the issue.  If this didn't work after our session this evening, then I'm afraid it may be a hardware issue.

Sometimes as I connect to a website, this pops up:
"Your connection was interrupted
A network change was detected

Or sometimes:
"There is no Internet connection
Try:
Checking network cables (these are fine since other devices work)
Reconnecting to WiFi (also fine since my laptop says I am connected and have Internet access even though I don't)
Running Windows Diagnostics (when I did this last time it just said "No problems detected" or something along those lines).
I am using Windows 10 and when I open the WiFi list, it says I am "Connected, secured" to my WiFi.
I have run Malwarebytes AntiMalware, CCleaner, Adware Cleaner, Malwarebytes JunkWare Removal Tool, MalwareBytes AntiRootkit and Avast Antivirus Free.
No viruses/trojans found.
Could someone help me to see if there is anything hidden or if its something else?
Thank you!

My computer is a Toshiba Sattelite o/s win 7. My wi fi signal is excellent, yet my signal keeps dropping or saying limited access. I have tried resetting the router and resetting my default windows settings on the computer. All other lap tops and wireless devices in the house do not have an issue. I discovered the other day as long as the laptop ( not the router) is plugged in and not running on batter power that i do not have a problem staying connected. For fun i wondered if it had something to do with the power cord making some kind of connection when plugged into the lap top, (since everything is more compact in them) I tried having the power cord plugged into the lap top but not into a power source but I still lost signal. Any suggestions?
 

A:Wifi connection constantly drops when lap top is operating on battery power

Sounds like you may have some power saving option for the wireless adapter when on battery. If so, try a higher (e.g., maximum performance) setting.

My attachment shows that for the plan I'm using I have 'medium power saving' for the wireless when on battery. If I were having your problem I would change that setting to 'Maximum Performance' and test.

It keeps dropping regularly even though tablet is within a feet distance from the WIFI router.In the WIFI menu the router name comes but if i select nothing happens and you can see that the tablet is not connected to any WIFI. The only way to temporarly solve the issue is to restart the tablet but that too lasts maybe 1 hr before the WIFI connection goes away. I saw in another thread of this community where it was suggested to do factory reset. I have done that too but the issue still exists. I have another PC and 2 mobiles which connects to the same router. So there is no problem with the router  Any suggestions how to fix?  Thanks.

Last year I had the laptop sent to Lenovo to replace my screen because my brightness would not change. Since then, the wifi adapter would "disappear*" randomly, though not often, sand I would have to reinstall the intel WLAN drivers to fix it. I though it wasn't going to be a problem. However, in the past two days, the wifi driver would disappear every time I turn on the laptop. Reinstallation did not bring it back and repairs did not work. I had to resort to using an external wireless adapter.The volume down button seems to be stuck down, not physically but more like it was "stickied".*disappear- the drivers would be missing, not disabled.

Then the same problem occurs after some time. I tried updating all the drivers, as well as the BIOS. I also tried removing the wifi apapter driver through Device Manager and reinstalling but this did not solve the isse. In fact, the wifi seems slower after doing this. As a note, whenever I run a scan using LSC, under WIreless > Local Connection Test, I get a warning sign.

Hello, I just recently purchased a Lenovo Ideapad U310. I'm very satisfied with everything about it... except for one little problem.

It constantly drops the wireless connection, unless I'm in the same room as the router. If I'm in the same room, everything runs super fast, however, if I'm across the house or upstairs (the router is downstairs), it'll drop connection every 20-30 minutes. The weird thing is, other devices (4 laptops & 3 iPhones) work just fine. Even my old HP laptop has fine connection upstairs, so I'm starting to think it's a problem with my laptop's wireless card.

Another thing that makes me think it's the laptop's problem... I was with my dad at a public library using their wifi the other day. My dad's computer ran at an average speed while mine was ridiculously slow.

The card is Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200. I've updated the driver directly from the Intel website, but no help. I've tried changing channels, no help. I'm not sure what else I can do. Is it just simply because the laptop has a weak wireless network card? It can't be the router's problem right? Since all other devices work?

For the next two years I'll be living in a dorm, most likely using a ethernet cable, will this problem still appear if I'm not using the internet wirelessly?

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium, Intel Core i5, and since the laptop is new, I haven't downloaded/installed... Read more

My laptop is an Intel Pentium Inside, made by Toshiba.

From what I can tell, my laptop is the only one in the house that seems to have issues with its wireless connectivity. At any given point in time, it will just seem to have issues staying connected, drop the connection for a few moments, and then restore it a few seconds later.

Now, while this doesn't interfere with internet usage very often, this does mean that Instant Messengers and things such as chatrooms are frequently exited out of for me, which has grown to be very annoying.

Every time I move my laptop from one room to another or shut down the computer and start it back up, it drops the connection. Recently, it has even started randomly dropping the connection throughout the day.

I'm at wit's end, and I have no idea what to do. Can anyone help me with this?

HiI hope someone can help me, this problem has been ongoing since the first day i bought it in 2012 december. the wifi disconnects to a 'limited' state. upon checking the device manager, the wireless adaptor is disabled. so i enable it and it gets back on again but no sooner is it on, it drops again. in 2014 i got dell tech to replace a new wifi card. on the spot, he too see how the new card didnt solve the problem. he nevertheless still left with the problem unsolved.recently the problem got very bad to a point it disconnects almost right away when i connect it back. i googled and found theres tonnes of issue with this wireless n2230. i came across a solution (disabling bluetooth). it worked for a day but the same thing came back after.i have done all sorts. factory reset, disabling and re-enabling, update windows and browsers and everything i can think of, its updated. im currently on win8, i do not know what other info i need to provide. i hope someone can help me im on the verge of smashing it out the window

My first question would be if you have upgraded to Windows 8.1. If not that would be the first thing I would do.
 
If you have 8.1 then I am assuming it is 64bit.
 
What is the make and model of the computer?

I have an Alienware M14x, Windows 7 and Killer Wireless N1202 Wireless Adapter. My issue is that I'll be on a game server humming along just fine (lets say Minecraft for now) when all of a sudden I notice that I haven't been getting connection for about 7 seconds then. Once its over everythings okay. However, it happens almost once every minute and it lasts for much longer at times resulting in my getting kicked for no response. It doesn't hamper normal browsing but its an obvious pain for gaming. I solved it once before, a while back, but its come back in its original form. I couldn't find the method I used before. All I remember is reading a forum that said to uninstall something from my Device Manager that Windows had added in and once I did it worked beautifully. I think it might have cropped back up in an update or something. But I have tried renewing my IP, turning off power saving on my network adapter, restarting everything, but I can't find that utility to uninstall nor the forum I saw. I could really use some help here...

This is an area I have less knowledge on than other areas.

Is there a way to optimise my wireless router/connection?

When I'm in games, it drops me out, but I still have internetivity.

I'm baffled, and I'd like to give wireless a good chance, instead of thinking it is useless. I know a couple other people who use wireless, but don't get dropped, but experience ping spikes.

I gather that my dropping out is a result of some ping spiking, but it's not all because of a ping spike, am I correct?

_________________________________________________________________

Also:
I put in a DVDROM, to install UT3 and COD4. I had previously done some MS updates and needed to restart after installing COD4. When I restarted the DVDrom was no longer detected. The DVDrom does have power, but it gets cut off, when the Windows Loading screen starts up. Is this a problem I can fix in setup.

Also, my monitor connection worked it's way loose, and I tightened it, is this just a coincidence that I tightened the monitor cable and then the DVDrom no longer worked?

Thanks for any help.

A:Gamer, wireless network drops me out constantly.

I don't know much at all about networks, so I can't help there, but...

about the DVDROM I believe it is coincidence, but you may wann check once more that all the connections are tight on the DVDROM.

Ok to make things as clear as possible:

Equipment Used:
I am using a Belkin 802.11g Wireless Router - "54g"

Along with a:

2WIRE Modem provided by Telstra Bigpond (Australia) [Not sure what model] (it's not a modem/router, just a plain modem)

Now I bought the Belkin router and it's an Australian Model as seen here
PROBLEM:
Brief:
The connection from my computer to the internet drops every few mins for a few seconds (About 20-30)

Detailed Life Story:
I had Optus net using a motorola netstream 4200 modem prior on the OptusNet ISP "DSL" network (512/128). After some problems with payment/money issues I upgraded to Telstra Bigpond's ADSL Network (1500/256).

Now supplied with the new modem stated above I installed it normally then attached it to the router once I finished configuring it using the ISP's provided CD.

The Internet was working fine for the first few hours and I didn't notice any dropouts or what ever (Maybe because I wasn't very attentive). A couple days later I started noticing drop outs frequently ie. D/Cing from MSN, Downloads Stopping, Firefox not loading during the drop causing me to refresh, D/C during Counterstrike Games.

Now I thought it was the modem at first so I did the process of elimination and directly connected the modem to my computer (Removed the router from the equation) and BAM no dropouts. Only problem is now my sister has no net! So obviously I have to reconnect the router on to and blah b... Read more

The new P70 Docking Station constantly drops peripheral connection with. There is never a reconnection, just constant drop sound.I can tell which by the beeps. And the beeps are annoying. I don't know what it is, but it happens every ten minutes or so, sometimes every minute. The only thing connected is monitor, mouse, keyboard. Thoughts on how to diagnose? I've tried watching Device Manager, etc, but can't notice any change (or it's buried too deep)
