Can I connect dual monitors to my Lenovo Ideapad FLEX 4-1570?

Q: Can I connect dual monitors to my Lenovo Ideapad FLEX 4-1570?

My small company does not have an IT department, so they cannot give me guidance. They gave me a Lenovo ideapad FLEX 4-1570. I had wished to connect it to my dual monitors, as I had previously done with my old Dell (in a docking station). Can I buy anything that will allow me to connect my 2 monitors to this new Lenovo?

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.)

A:Ideapad FLEX 5-1570 shows 5.64 GB of 15.87 GB memory on the Lenovo Vantage App ?

Hi @j3443ry!
 
A Memory Leak is a misplacement of resource in a computer program due to faulty memory allocation. It happens when a RAM location not in use remains unreleased. Have you tried to restart the machine and observe if you'll see the same info in Lenovo Vantagae? You may try to install an older version of Lenovo Vantage as well to further isolate the problem.

Just got a Lenova Idea Pad Flex 5 1570 and got an update for BIOS, but it says,  "This package is built for Lenovo ideapad 520S-14IKB/ 320S-14IKB/ 320S-15IKB/ 320S-15ISK/ FLEX 5-1470/ FLEX 5-1570/ 2in1 14 , Lenovo XiaoXin CHAO7000/ XiaoXin CHAO7000-15/ YOGA 520-14IKB  only, do not try it on other machines."   Altho, it does indicate FLEX 5-1570/2in1 14 in the update, the description on my system does not show the 2in1 14.  I don't want to risk creating problems if it is only for 2in1 14.   How can I be sure the update is for this model? Frustrated Phyllis

I got my Ideapad yesterday, and I have noticed that the spacebar is squeaky.  It doesn't do it every single time, but when it does it is pretty loud and annoying.  It only seems to happen on the right side of the spacebar, but unfortuantely that's the side I use.  I'm not sure if I should try to get it fixed, try and get a replacement system or just hope that it goes away as I continue to use it.  I type a lot and I'm going to be taking notes with it in college so it's going to be a problem if it persists.  Has anyone had this happen before or have advice about what I should do?

I opened my one month old Lenovo Flex 5-1570 to see what is going on inside because what I read / see is confusing and have these questions (I?m aware that my actions may void the warranty): The maintenance manual say to first unplug the battery plug and then remove the battery but I can?t unplug it. The only place to pull the plug out is the wires and I don?t want to apply too much pressure doing so. I also tried to pry out the plug with no success. Perhaps the plug is locked and I wonder if on the attached picture the 2 small holes shown on the top of the plugs socket are the locks and maybe I should put something to press into these holes to release the plug. Anyone knows if the battery plug is locked? For the benefit of other users, as per attached picture (noticed I'm only allowed to post 1 picture only) the HDD includes the bracket required to install the HDD and there is no cable required. Looks like the new HDD just plugs in. Also the manual says to remove 2 screws to remove the HDD but there are 3 screws to remove.

?I bought a laptop, Lenovo flex -1570 from US through amazon.com, for my father's birthday present. Thanks for ruining it in a way that I could have never imagined. In just 2 days of laptop usage, the mouse pad has come out. The amazing service center in India (ticket no. HT014716010) said that the glue that held mousepad to the laptop "WASN'T STICKY ENOUGH" and added that they do not support this laptop as its "international warranty" is limited to US and China and I need to take it to your US service center to fix it. $619 laptop, 2 days, and it is nothing more than a junk box to me. As a birthday present I have gifted my father nothing more than added tension and thanks to you guys for making that happen. Attaching a pic for your reference. ?

I need help regarding the pink screen problem I am experiencing recently on my laptop. I see pink in place of white, green in place of black. There is screen image on the screen even after it has beenclosed or minimized- Ghost effect.(Not sure about terminology).External monitor works fine with HDMI.2 years old laptop. No more warranty. I have opened my laptop, unplugged the lcd screen and lcd cable and replugged everything back together hoping it was a lcd inverter or backlight problem. But nothing changed. The cable looked fine without any damage, and the screen looked fine from the inside. Please suggest if is a problem is with lcd cable or lcd digitzer or  something I do not know. I don't see the point of taking the laptop to repair and getting charged 250-300$ where as I can get a decent new laptop for 350-450$. I would rather buy the necessary part and replace it myself.screen faultyIll be glad if you could provide service. Thank you for your time.

Having trouble here would be super grateful for your help. I connected one external monitor to this alptop but failed in connecting a second monitor to it. My Ideapad 720s is a 4k laptop and so are both my external monitors. When I connected the HDMI cable into the USB port on my laptop the monitor was VERY blurry! So I was forced to use this adapter to plug the HDMI into it and the adpater pligged into the USB-C on my laptop. This is the adapter I used: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/j5creat...?skuId=5930600 So that adapter worked to connect one external monitor but I wasn't able to get a 2nd monitor to work sucessfully. I don't know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks for any input!

Got this notebook two days ago and tried to use the tablet mode. I realized that the touch screen wasn't working and went to check the device manager only to find out that the HID compliant touch screen driver is missing. While checking, I noticed that Wacom device driver also could not start as well (Code 10). Does anyone have a clue as to what is going on?

I have just purchased a Lenovo Y900i and I am having an issue with connecting dual monitors on my PC.My computer has two HDMI ports and one VGA port. However, only one HDMI port actually seems to work and the VGA does not.I have test both monitors and neither monitor is faulty.When I connect the monitors to the non-working HDMI port or to the VGA; they seem to sense that they are connected to something, but obviously do not display anything. However, when I go to the display options in System, it does not detect the monitor.I have also tried going into the NVDIA Control Panel to try to detect the device, but that is not working either.I have tried changing resolution settings, but to no avail. I have checked BIOS and there seems to be nothing about display or port options that would assist me in activating any particular port.I have a feeling that the issue has something to do with adaptor settings, but alas I am not tech savvy enough to figure this one out by myself.Currently both monitors are connected to HDMI ports.Model: Lenovo Y900iOperating System: Windows 10Graphics Card: NVDIA GeForce GTX 1080

Hi, my CPU is i7-8550u and my GPU is MX150. V2.05 of the BIOS (4qcn41ww) works well. However, the big issue is that the fan curve is so high that fans will spin 24/7, even on idle. The laptop is able to overclock/underclock in response to demand needs. Excellent, but too loud. I upgraded to V2.07, which definitely fixed the fan curve problem, especially when "Quiet Mode" is selected in the BIOS. HOWEVER, there is one extreme issue, the clock speed will be fixed to a single speed indefinitely until reboot. The clock speed is not able to dynamically change. This is terrible because it either is fixed to 0.4Ghz (EXTREMELY SLOW) or 1.8Ghz (still slow, bearable, but I shouldn't have to deal with this in my purchase). These clock speeds were provided by Windows Task Manager. The throttle starts at a random time, and doesn't end until the computer is rebooted. After dealing with V2.07, I've reverted to V2.05 (provided by a Lenovo Chat assistant). I'm back to loud fans, but a properly running device. This issue is not heat related, I don't think. I have a CPU temperature reading, and it throttles to 0.4Ghz even at 45C (which is idle). I've attempted to fix this problem, if it may be thermals, by applying an undervolt via Throttlestop. However, the issue persists regardless of it throttlestop is running or not. I've ran an Official Lenovo Hardware Scan, and my computer comes up clean. For a $1000 laptop, I'm really surprised at how shoddy o... Read more

Hi everyone. I can see that people with other similar style Lenovo laptops (Yoga 900) complain about the same issue so was wondering if there is a solution or an optimized version of this software. I did an update of the BIOS and the Power Management driver and still a constant power usage.  Once the laptop is flipped the YMC detects it and turns off the keyboard functionality to prevent accidental presses and that is pretty much all until it flipped back and enabled. And all of this requires a constant high CPU usage? Any help would be highly appreciated. I also tried rolling back to older drivers without luck in decreasing this CPU hog usage. To put such load on a i5 6th gen CPU really implies an inferior service integration....

Hello there, I have an Ideapad S340, I'm thinking about getting an update, but I'm not sure of something.My PC's product number is 81NB and the series number is MP1LMKEL This PC comes with a Ryzen 3 3200U an integrated GPU (AMD) Vega 3 GFX, 4GB of RAM DRR4 2667Mhz, a SSD of aprox 120GB and a 1TB HDD I want to update my RAM, the original one is solded (Sadly) and I want to achieve DUAL SLOT Ram use.I have two options, the secure one is buying another 4GB RAM and then having just 8GB in Dual RAM but I really want to ask about having 12GB of RAM (1x4 and 1x8). I know that Flex Mode exist, it's meanted to having two different sized RAMs and still having Dual Ram. (Just in the first 4GB of the 8GB one but still an improvement, having the another 4GB in Single Slot) But, does this Laptop supports Flex Mode? I ask this because I want to unleash all the Integrated GPU Power by using Dual Slot but if the Laptop doesn't support Flex Mode, it would be a terrible money waste for me, so I wanna be sure if this PC supports Flex Mode and I can have 12GB (Having 4GB and 8GB of RAM) and the iGPU would use all the capacities of Dual Slot in Flex. I'll be right here, thanks for letting me ask here!

I've just got the Flex 3 1570, it's a refurbished unit.

Actually, according to Disk Management they're all empty except for the C: partition of course. So it seems as though the system didn't even ship with the recovery image backed up. Is it safe to delete these partitions(particularly the LENOVO partition)?

A:Partitions on Flex 3 1570

I am tring to repartition my hardrive. Unfortunately the partitions I want to resize are separated by 'recovery partitions'. I don't know where these partitions came from. I think when the computer was bought I had the C: partition and the D: partition holding the Lenovo recovery stuff. I provided a screenshot of my current partition scheme, if someone from Lenovo could provide a screen shot of a 'factory-fresh' Flex 3 partition scheme so I can see what is necessary, I would be very grateful.  Thanks,Matt

I have a Flex 15. I bought a USB-C Hub with Ethernet connection. I naively thought that this would allow me to establish a wired connection from my router to my PC. But it appears that the machine doesn't automatically connect to my LAN through the adapter I purchased.
Is there any way to get a wired connection to the LAN with this machine so I can get better-than-wifi (54.0Mbps) connection speed?I see that there is an option to "establish a Broadband Connection." Is this relevant? I can't figure out how to make it work.

Hi,
 
I don't have any model Flex, but the way I read the specs the Flex 15 already has an RJ45 Ethernet port and doesn't suppot USB-C.
 
Perhaps this is a different model?  A Flex 5 15 inch, maybe?
 
I'd expect a USB-whatever to Ethernet adapter to work but there's always a chance for individual compatibility issues.
 
How about a link to the adapter you purchased, and some clarity on the laptop model?  (And my apologies if I've mis-read your post...)

Dear Experts, I was noticing this problem just after my warranty is expired.  My Lenovo Ideapad flex 15 shuts down exactly in every 30 minutes. Here are some clues.Shutdown even when it is in bios, it is not a driver problem. Reset the bios to default but no outcome.Did comprehensive hardware test using Lenovo Solution Center but not showing any issue.All hardware temperature is normal. There was some dust in CPU fan, causing problem to run it smoothly. Removed the dust, now it is running smoothly. But still, I am having this problem.Removed the BIOS battery for the whole night, no outcome.If I put the laptop in sleep(before 30 min) and wake up immediately, I don't see this problem. I suspect this is some hardware or bios firmware issue (i.e probably some internal timer is shutting down laptop and putting the laptop into sleep may reinitialize the timer). Any idea how to resolve this problem? As another try, I want to flash the bios firmware, but I can't find any link in lenovo support center to get bios firmware for Lenovo Ideapad Flex 15.  Any help is highly appreciated. My BIOS version: 8ACN34WW Thanks/Babu
