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.)

After spending another harrowing half hour trying to get my computer to boot, I have to ask: is there a way to turn off the battery unseat via power button thing? In case my description of the issue is unclear (it may be), here's the situation: I actually carry my laptop places.  I know, portable computer being ported around, weird right?  Well, since lonovo decided we can't access our battery, they gave us a way to 'unseat' or 'disconnect' it, holding the power button down for 20 s or so.  Of course, this causes a lot of people to do this on accident and think their machne is broken.  Of course, allowing us to actually remove the battery would be a better  option, but we're sorta past that now. Anyhow, the issue I have is sometimes the battery unseat command is sent as a result of me walking places with the computer in my backpack.  As in, I get places, and the computer will not boot... and sometimes even the standard 'press for 20, plug in, boot' process fails.  Anyhow, just spent the last half hour trying to boot this thing... it finally worked, BUT I would love to know... is there a way to disable this 'feature'?  As in, is there a way to prevent the computer from disconnecting the battery via a power button press and hold sequence?  If so, please let me know, it would save me a lot of trouble.

Hi,Have been using Ideapad Z410 from past 6 months.  From past week the Laptop shuts down without warning, and the battery level is at 99% or 100%.  Only when the unit shutsdown, and when I start up again, that the battery indicator starts from 0 and goes to 99% or 100% and stays there.  I have also doen the Battery Meter Reset, but of no benefit.What is the problem, and what should I do.Should I claim under warranty ?

A:Idepad Z410 battery always at 99% or 100%

I wouldn't expect much of an answer from them, the same happens to the Z510 I have and it happens to the Z500 models before it, they'll tell you to send it in under warranty but that will not solve the problem as it will happen again after a few months and I need the laptop for work, I didn't buy it so that after half a year I would have to send it away for 2-3 weeks, I bought the thing because it is needed here. They need a battery firmware update but that too is too hard for them to do. These problems are being experienced by people worldwide and I am seriously considering reporting them to watchdog here in the UK. They should not be shipping laptops that have known issues and then offer no fix.

hi turtle7,
 
Yes That info is correct if a keyboard has a backlith Capability, it should have the icon on the Spacebar. and FN+Spacebar should trigger it.

I  bought this laptop lenovo idepad 510-15ISK from a shop in Greece. I added an SSD and upgraded the RAM the same day following sellers advice that the upgrade won't harm the warranty. The same day I detected that laptop were electrocuting me and the next day I returned the product to the seller for replacement. They verified the electric drain and the technician recovered the original HHD and removed the extra ram that I added so as to give it to the official technical support. I have been told that only if the technical support  say that this is a problem they will either replace the laptop or return my money back.It seems though that the technical support changed the motherboard of the laptop (approved that SSD and RAM upgrade didn't harm the laptop) and they don't approve the replacement or my money back. This laptop is no longer a new laptop but a refurbished one!!!!! I have already gone to local authorities for local seller, lenovo and official technical support for trying to cheat me and I am already contacting with local media to raise the issue in the Greek market about the tactics of lenovo. Can you please suggest me any other ways before this goes public not only in Greece but also in more European Countries?

Hello MArleoThanks for using the Lenovo forums.
 
Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)1. Turn the unit off2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter5. Turn the unit on as normal
 
If it doesn`t work, open it up again, make sure that there is no loose connections, it may be that one of the cables came loose when you put it back together again.

Hello Rembo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you have Windows 7 Ultimate, you could install a fully licensed XP Mode to have XP running on a Windows Virtual Machine.

Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup


About the only disadvantage is that it may run a bit slower as a virtual machine versus a normal clean install or dual boot.

Hope this helps,

Hello Friends.
This is my first post in this forum.
Actually, i need some suggestion about Window 10.

Currently i am using Window 7 64 BIT and Ubuntu. Both are working nice. Now I'm thinking to install one more OS (Window 10 basically). I have heard somewhere that Window 10 Trial version is available.

So guys could you please tell me, first is it possible to install three operating system? Or if not, then how can i replace my window 7 with window 10.
I don't want to loose my data of window 7.

Thank you.

A:Is it possible to install three OS window,Linux and Window 10?

Windows 10 is just a beta, an unfinished preview version only, not the release version. MS warn clearly that it's not intended for production purposes yet.

Try it in a virtual machine on either OS. Or if you know what you're doing, try allocating one more partition for it, but don't replace Win7 with it.

Hi fellow lenovo users,I started this thread because I have failed to reach a solution using the instructions from other threads and support pages about missing or not functional dolby app after windows update. I tried to find a specific thread for the Ideapad 320s about this problem but have't found one yet hence the creation of this thread. So, recently my laptop has just had a windows update, after the update lenovo vantage was added to my app list but I couldn't open the dolby setting and only being greeted by a "...missing component, reinstall software" prompt. I've downloaded the specific driver for my product on lenovo's web and have tried to uninstall conexant driver on my device manager AND ALSO DELETED the leftovers dolby files. Continuing, I installed the driver using the installer I got from lenovo's web. The installer does run and restores the conexant audio driver but the dolby app doesn't get installed. I checked the source folder to find that the installer did extract dolby config as I found several ".cab" files labeled DolbyAPI, DolbyGUI, etc. But I can't seem to find any installer program accompanying it. Am I missing something or is there any solutions present? If so do please point it out as I am really just wandering in the dark Cheers

I cannot find where to decrease the sensitivity of the beautiful touch screen on my new Yoga idepad... and the users manual Lenovo Vantage directs me to is something of a joke on the matter... IOW, not any help. There must be a setting that will reduce the number of times the screen sends me off on unintended internet websites. Another setting I have looked for is for screen enlargment commands... I'm used to using two-finger enlargement, but the yoga idepad seems to be set for one-finger. Perhaps that is in the same place as the sensitivity adjustment?
