Lenovo IdeaPad 500s Wifi Connectivity Problems

Q: Lenovo IdeaPad 500s Wifi Connectivity Problems

Hello all, I recently bought my Lenovo Ideapad 500s and I am experiencing wifi problems. The wifi would frequently disconnect and say that my network is limited. I would usually disconnect and reconnect and that solves my problem. I am wondering if there is a way to fix this wifi problem instead of continueously reconnecting. If you need any further information, please contact me. Edit- Does anyone know a way to remove the pop-up for whenever I use capslock? Thanks.

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.)

 Bought this machine in Dec 2016 and have not been able to use it at all because it keeps crashing every now and then with BSD.  It's under warranty.  Every time Lenovo engineer reinstalls the OS and it keeps crashing.  It's already 5 times they have done this. There seems to be no solution in sight and of late Lenovo engineers stopped responding to the issue in time.  It's nearly a week they collected coredump and event viewer data with no solution coming forward till now.  Lenovo is not willing to consider DOA. Currently, it's lying with me and unusable.  What's the solution to this problem?

A:Lenovo Ideapad 500S BSD Problem

Hard to tell because actaul StopCode is not visible in the image, but typically blue screens are an operating system issue related to hardware drivers, or corrupt system files, and are not hardware related.     It would if you could upload the actual C:\Windows\Memory.dmp file as it might point to the driver or system file at fault.

I got my laptop a year ago but now it won't charge properly. Sometimes it charges and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it charges on and off, with enough power to keep it on but not adding to the battery life (so if the laptop battery is at 14% for example, it would stay there not lower, not higher). Other times it would charge all the way to 100% and other times it wouldn't charge at all.At first I thought it was the charger but I just bought a new one and it's still doing the same thing.

I have recently bought an Ideapad 500s with an i7 processor and Intel HD Integrated Graphics 520. I have seen, through the use of some websites, that my dedicated video RAM is only 128mb. It appears that the way to increase this is through the use of Advanced Settings in BIOS, but this laptop does not appear to have that option in its' bios settings. Is there any way to either access the advanced BIOS settings or increase the dedicated video RAM by another method?

Hi.I have a problem with my battery not charging (at 1% left and power connected) and get an error message that my battery is not recognized by Lenovo, even though it's the same battery I've had for 4 years (the laptop is as good as new, and I don't want to change it).Apparently, a BIOS update should work, according to several web forums, and it worked when I had the same problem some time ago. But since then I have updated to Windows 10 and I can't find any BIOS updates for my laptop which is compatible with windows 10. And those that are compatible with windows 10 are not compatible with my laptop. Will there ever be an update, or do anyone have another solution to my battery problem?INFO:Windows 10 Home 64 bitIntel Core i5-3337U 1.80 GHz8GB RAMCurrent BIOS id: 7ECN19WW

I have no cursor control or keypad control, i changed all the sleep settings to never and nothing seems to be working. I have to completely restart the laptop to do anything again. On the reiliability report it usually says windows stopped working or was closed unexpectedly.

Hello So a while ago I posted about a problem I was having that caused my laptop(fairly new 1.5 months now) to randomly crash or go in a blacklit screen mode where the only option to get it working again is to hard reset it. I think a lenovo community memeber posted up a fix that i should download (Intel Management Enginer Hardware .. something like that). That fix did not work and then I tried the suggested method by a customer which only worked for a week. I also contancted lenovo and allowed them access to my computer and all that was done was updating the drivers.  My warranty is for a year and I would have to send it to get it fixed My questions are, is there anything else I can do myself to resolve this issue?If lenovo cannot solve this issue what can be done about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I just started university and I often find I fall behind on some programming for a course because I cannot bring my laptop to school as it is pretty much useless

Hello everybody,I've signed in this community right now. I have a laptop ideapad 500s-13 for a month, with windows 10 pre installed. the CPU is core i3-6100, Intel Graphics 520, Samsung SSD 128Gb, 4 GB ram. After some sumulative update of Win 10 1607 anniversary update, my laptop couldn't boot, it remains in black screen mode with circle of dots rotating but it can't enter in the system, even if i disconnected all the connection and USB cable. I've tried to boot in Safe mode, it works!! but not in normal mode!!So, what I did was to enter in Safe mode and disable the Intel Graphics 520 Driver from device manager (i don't remember the exact name). I restarted the PC, surprisingly it could enter in the system without any problem, but i couldn't change the brighness of the screen and some other feature related to screen. The problem cames up the exact moment when i tried to enable the graphic driver from pc device manager ,the screen turned black with only cursor. So I think the main problem is the incompatibility of the win10 and the intel graphics driver. My current version of intel HD graphic 520 driver is 21.20.16.4550, driver date 11/11/2016. Please, do you have any solutions??? ps. sorry for any mistake in the text, english is not my native language.  thank you in advance

I've had this problem eversince I've gotten this laptop.The wifi works fine, only when a monitor (either the TV or my external monitor, using different cords) is plugged in I lose my internet connection, even though it still shows full wifi connection. It works very briefly if I disconnect the wifi and connect again. Starting the computer while the monitor is already plugged in does not help.

Hi I was unfortunate enough to buy a Lenovo laptop for the first time two weeks in Kuala Lumpur. It wasnt too long before I realised that the laptop had a serious problem with the Wifi. The internet connection either runs very slowly or not at all, i'm using my old trusty HP laptop at the moment and there are no problems at all, even my cheapo smartphone works better than the Lenovo. The model is Ideapad 310-14IKBModel name 80TUS/N PF0Q5ZXD After a little research(wish I did it before I purchased) I found out that the older Ideapad 310 is plagued by bad Wifi, but it shoudn't affect the new models, this laptop says it was manufactured on 18/12/2016. Two years international warranty came with the device, so I am planning to visit Lenovo when I return home. In the meantime is there any quick fix for this? It's driving me mad. Thanks

I bought my Lenovo ideapad from a best buy in Canada at the end of August 2016, I have been having unprovoked screen issues so I called the Lenovo support number on July 24th, last week and explained the issue. They said my warranty was up and so I explained the situation and showed them the reciept that proved I bought it at the end of August, and so they rightly accepted that I was still applicable for the warranty. I was then told that within three business days they would send me a shipping box to send the laptop back to them in. It has been a week now and there is no sign of the box and no real update or explanation from Lenovo. When I check the status of my repair order online, it shows: Order status: New OrderOverall Status: in Progress which isn't very helpful because I have no idea if theyre still processing the shipping of the box, or if the box has been shipped and is just delayed or if there was an issue for some reason with sending it. Any explanation or insight would be greatly appreciated. Connor

I have a one year old Ideapad 500S - 141SK with mousepad problems.  Everything worked well until recently, when the mousepad suddenly got far too sensitive.  I have changed to as little sensitive as possible, but this does not work - it seems like the sensitivity is the same regardless of the settings. I can see in other forums that deactivating the "click-funktion" may solve this problem.  But I do not find any place to do this...   I also have an other problem with the pad:  Sometimes it seems like there is "sand" under the pad.  I don't know if there is a connection between these two errors.  A theory:  May be small particles (crumbles etc?) gets under the mousepad because the sealents are not good enough? Anyone else who have experienced this and know why? I would be very thankful if anyone out there could help me

Just before the July 29 deadline I updated my Lenovo G40 IdeaPad to Win 10.
Everything appeared fine except that I couldn't get a WiFi link!
Eventually Lenovo "support" advised that there was no available WiFi driver for the G480.
Desperately, I had to uninstall Win 10 and revert to Win 8.1.
Can anyone advise on this. I find it somewhat unbelievable that there isn't a driver for the G480 model - it's not that old.
If anyone can help, I also need advice on how to update to Win 10 beyond the July 29th boundary

We have the AT&T gigapower speed with the Pace router with 2.4 & 5 ghz wifi dual modes.  I checked with AT&T and they advised that different devices can have different speeds if the hardware or drivers are old or not up-to-date.  AT&T has stated that everyone won't get 1ghz speeds (disclaimer says up to 1ghz).  So, I have another Lenovo 540w laptop that I use for work and it is getting 330 mbps download speeds for the 5ghz wireless and 500+ mbps download when connected with the ethernet cable to the router.I connected the Flex 3 directly to the router with the ethernet cable and tested at speedtest.net and received 320 mbps download speed.I went to speedtest.net and ran a test on the wireless and the best I could get is 30 mpbs download speed.  I noticed that the flex 3 would only connect to 2.4ghz.  When I tried to connect with 5ghz, I received and error that it would not connect.  So I searched on the Lenovo website for updated wifi drivers and found newer drivers.  My current driver was for Intel AC-3165 dual band wireless adapter version 18.12.1.2 date 7/29/2015.  I dowloaded and installed version 19.10.0.9 date 9/28/2016, rebooted and saw some improvement.

RELEVANCY SCORE 65.2

New machine bought 4th June 2016. Has been working fine until yesterday. Then "all of a sudden"... Failure of WLAN driver (appears to pick up wireless network for 1-2 minutes then drops). Wireless connection either showing as ?no internet, secured? or simply no network connections shown Wi-fi vanishes from Network & Internet. WLAN driver vanishes from Drivers list. Windows Troubleshooter indicates software/hardware issues with the WLAN DriverDriver Power state failure (cannot properly restart or shut down)USB 2 and 3 ports not recognising devices (flash drive, mouse etc.)Reset PC not working from Settings; need to do it via Advanced Startup I have done a full Reset several times and problems persist. Has anyone got an idea of what is going on here? Many thanks
