Q: SSD mentioned as storage but received eMMC on Lenovo Yoga 310 11|AP

Hi,I recently purchased a Yoga 310 11|AP. The device has a bad performance even if I use it for just internet browsing or word processing. I can see the storage type mentioned on the box pack is 32GB SSD, but it has an eMMC type storage, whose performance level compared to a SSD is very low. Kindly let me know what can be done regarding this. 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.)

I have only ever used it to write word docs and search internet.all of a sudden the storage space is saying no memory.i have deleted items and only have four word docs saved to computer. Please help. This is causing me huge frustrations and I cannot work at all. When I try to write in my saved docs it is not letting me save. What do I need to do? 

A:Lenovo Yoga 300 major storage issue please help

Let's try the easy stuff first. 
Open File Explorer (WIndows-E) and right click on the C: drive. Select properties and, under the General tab, click on disk cleanup. 
Thumbnails, Temporary Internet Files and Downloaded Program Files should already be checked. Go ahead and tick the Recycle Bin box, too, then click on OK.

Hi, I recently upgraded the Storage with a WD green 120 GB M.2 SSD. Post upgradation, i installed Windows 7 into the new Drive. After dealing with several error messages and trying all workarounds the system was able to boot and became a working machine again.  I accidentally formatted the eMMC i.e. previously my C: drive and faced a lot of difficulty in making it work. However happy that finally the system is back to its normal working condition. The only problem i am facing now is, i am not able to see the 32GB eMMC card in Disk Management or in MY Computer. Though the same is visible in Advanced Troubleshooting during pre-boot (Repair your system Option) . Though the volume is visible and is empty there, its not visible inside windows explorer after windows starts. Though it doesnt affect the system's performance now, i would like to use the 32GB memory. I tried looking for the driver but not didnt find any. I am currently using Win 7 Enterprise. My next attempt would be to upgrade to Windows 10 and see if that resolves the issue.  Please Help !

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

And I'm getting more and more worried now. Two years ago, I had really bad experience of damaged computer parts due to rough UPS handling.I know many of you are long-time patrons of Lenovo. I'd like to ask a few questions and get myself prepared for possible event where my package arrive damaged.QuestionsQ1: How do Lenovo.com package Thinkpad sales?Do Lenovo.com simply place a UPS shipping label on a Thinkpad retail box and ship? Or do they place Thinkpad in additional shipping box filled up with cushion materials and ship? If the latter, is the shipping box sturdy?It'd be very helpful if someone has a photo of freshely arrived unopened ThinkPad shipment.Q2: AFAIK UPS has reputation for rough shipment handling. But that too depends on area of shipment's destination. How is the UPS service in Baltimore area zip code 21030? Anyone from there?Q3: If I find my ThinkPad shipment arrive evidently damaged, can I refuse the shipment? If I do so, is there any fee that may incur to my end?Q4: After receiving my ThinkPad, if ThinkPad and/or its accessories are found damaged due to shipping, can I return it to Lenovo.com with no fees charged?

A:Bought off Lenovo.com, Shipped via UPS and Received Damaged ThinkPad Package

1. It is just the laptop box. The laptop itself has 0 cushioning, just 2 pieces of plastic to hold it in place and a piece of cardboard under it which also houses the manuals.2. Can't help you there.3. I believe there is a sticker on the thing that says "Do not deliver if box is damaged" on all laptops because they have Li ion batteries. Call Lenovo if it is damaged.4. Yes, if you contact them. You have 21 days from the day that it ships from the warehouse, normally, I believe. I think this also means that if it took 20 calender days to actually make it to your house, you have only 1 day left, but I'm sure that Lenovo will be understanding enough if you report it promptly.5. Highly doubt it, for both parts.Don't be paranoid about it. If it arrives damaged, take it up with UPS or Lenovo. Worrying will not help you or change the fact that it may arrive damaged. Most, as in probably almost all, laptops ship undamaged, so I wouldn't worry about it.

Hello Dws520Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Was this the creators update?
If so, have a look on the following post, this should show if your device has been tested with the update yet:
https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht503655
 
From what I can see, your unit does not seems to have made the list, which leads me to believe that this will be the cause of the issue, I would recommend that you revert back to the previous version of Windows, and observe if the fault still occurs or not.
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

Disclaimer: I received the Yoga 920 as a review loaner unit from Lenovo. All opinions are my own, nobody is paying for my review, and no one is reviewing this content before it's posted. 

                                                                     Left: Yoga 920 in Bronze. Right: Yoga 910 in Silver
 
On the surface, both the Yoga 910 and Yoga 920 look nearly identical, but in my testing, I prefer one over the other. Let's dig deeper to see the differences between the two!To get this out of the way, both machines have 1TB PCIe storage, 16GB memory, and the Yoga 910 has the 7th gen i7-7550U processor, and the Yoga 920 has the 8th gen i7-8550U processor. 
 
Hardware & Design
Both the Yoga 910 and Yoga 920 are built out of aluminum, which gives them a high quality feel to them.  Both laptops have the keyboard integrated into the chassis, which means less keyboard flex. One thing that I find better in the Yoga 920 is the fact that it's all smooth edges around.  The Yoga 910 has pretty sharp edges which means you could scratch your surface or yourself.  The sharp edges of the Yoga 910 was a common complaint, and I'm glad they rectified it. 
 
 
The Yoga 920 also has a little slit on the display lid that makes it much easier to open the lap... Read more

Is it possible without too much hassle? I know it's not a big deal but the logo is simply terrible in so many ways. If nothing, then at least I'm raising awareness and maybe Lenovo will choose a better graphic designer for our collective startup screens. I mean, seriously?

Try getting into BIOS first and loading default settings. To do this, press the small "Novo" button (you'll need a paperclip for this), and select "BIOS setup". From there, use the arrow keys to get to the "exit" tab and select load default settings.

I read other posts and none specifically addressed this for the 920 and the use of what is actually a good Lenovo config tool seems to be poorly documented.   I would think it would be the same for any Yoga model with Windows 10 and Lenovo Vantage installed.   I can't seem to find a version for Vantage, so hopefully this works on all versions.    1) Find and open Lenovo Vantage on your machine (use Cortana if needed).   This is the Responsive view and yours may look different...don't worry, options are the same.  Click on Hardware settings  2)  Click on Input (again, responsive view...whatever view you have should have this button labeled the same)  3)  This will open the Hardware Setting - Input UI.   Under 'Function Keys' click on the one that is labeled 'F1-F12' (should look like below, highlighted in blue) to make that the the Function the default setting for those keys...to further clarify: it will now be a Function Key (F1-F12) by default.    With this change, you will press the FN+ one of the function key for the Hot Key option (e.g. FN+F1=mute/unmute, FN+F2=volume down, etc.)     4)  Your change is already saved, so you can now X-out (click X in the upper right) of the pop-up windows created by that were created

Also, 128 GB is an estimate. No HDD/SSD will ever have the stated space or more. All HDDs/SSD will always be smaller than advertise. Install iOrbit Uninstaller, sort program from largest to smallest and then remove the large programs you no longer use. Use Disk Cleanup and before pressing the clean/delete button, select ?Clean System files?.... This way you can delete the Window?s Update installers left on your computer (usually takes up a few gigs if never removed). The above 2 recommendations will make a huge difference

Hi I have a 2nd Gen X1 Yoga (20JES00N00) which is not even a year old and, for the third time now, is giving me an error ("2100 Detection Error on Storage Device (M.2) \\ Press Esc to continue.") when I start it up (and pressing Esc as instructed only prompts a question where to boot from, and then leads to the same error again). First time this happened (in March), Lenovo Hotline Zagreb sent me a new SSD, which I had installed by an expert (turned out it was impossible to do without special tools, because a screw had been overtightened at the factory). Second time (in May), I got a new SSD and mainboard installed. (Needless to say, each time with significant downtime and hassle setting up the system by myself again). Now the error is back a third time. Does anybody know of a solution which really works? This is rather frustrating.

Hello everyone, my name is Atai and I have a question about my netbook. Last year i bought Lenovo S 10-2 and was happy with it but recently it broke down and wouldn't start. I have a warranty and would like to send it to be repared.

I have credit card information, personal e mail exchanges as well as family photos on the computer however and would rather repairmen couldn't go through my content.

My friend took out the hard disk but I remember that Windows 7 or One Key Recovery program was on separate drive that also contains personal information.

Does S 10-2 have one 160 GB hard disk that contains 2 partitions (one for storage and other for Windows 7 and OKR) or does it have one 160 GB hard disk + separate storage medium for Windows 7?

In other words, am I removing all personal content from the netbook by taking out the 160 GB hard disk?

Thanks for your help,

Atai
 

A:Storage on Lenovo S10-2 netbook

It has a single Western Digital 160GB notebook hard drive, that may contain more than one partition. Usually there is a Windows partition and a separate system recovery partition. You can remove this hard drive, send the net-book in for service and reinstall the hard drive when you get the net-book back, if the drive itself was not the problem and the net-book should boot normally with all your files intact

About a month of regular use with my Yoga 3rd Gen. laptop, I started getting an inconsistent error whenever I attempted to power up the device. For about a week or two I attributed this 2100 error to the software side as nothing hardware had changed, or at least to my knowledge. After no avail after windows updates/intel updates, I then switched to the hardware aspect after reading online posts with a similar issue and potential solutions. I unscrewed the back cover with little difficulty and located the M2 drive. My plan was to reseat the drive as I had read online that this could be a quick fix. However, the stubborn M2 drive would not budge, resulting in some unfortunate stripping. I then tried to increase the padding to the drive as I had hoped the issue was stemming from my daily commute and movement the laptop was experiencing. I first using some eletrical tape as a way to decrease the distance between the back cover to the drive. After using the computer that night, this attempt appeared to be successful as I did not run into any error. However, the next day when I powered on the device, I was faced with the familiar black screen 2100 error. Once again, I then tried to increase the artificial padding and to see if I was on the right track. Today, the first day after the weekend, I had to see if I had finally found a solution but was faced with 2100 errors and constant blue screens/crashes after a few minutes of use. The only options that I have left whic... Read more

I have a Lenovo Yoga 720 15" and I'm having issues when connecting my Akitio Thunder3 Quad Thunderbolt 3 4-Bay HDD storage enclosure. I have updated all the drivers for my laptop, Windows 10, and the enclosure, but I'm still having issues. Whenever I connect the Thunder3 all four drives in the enclosure register fine, but then my laptop's touchscreen and fingerprint reader stop working. Restarting while the enclosure is plugged in does not solve the situation. I can get the touchscreen and fingerprint reader to start working again if I power down the computer with the enclosure plugged in, then unplug it, turn on the computer, and then restart the computer again. The minute I plug the enclosure back in, the touchscreen and fingerprint reader stop working. I also cannot plug and unplug the enclosure without restarting Windows. Basically, if I have the enclosure connected (registered properly), then safetly eject it, I cannot get the drives to register if I reconnect the enclosure. The thunderbolt interface registers the enclosure itself, just not the drives. If I restart Windows, then I can reconnec the enclosure and get the drives working properly. Anyone else having this issue? I'm guessing it's a driver issue, but doesn't seem to be any other threads out there about the same issue. I've spoken with Akitio but they said it must be my laptop drivers.

Santa delivered a Lenovo 510-AST looks great, santa?s Elves at the store said that a Lenovo Active Pen 1 GX80K32884 would work with it..... The laptop seems great, the usual mega GB of updates from windows, and setting Gmail up with outlook was like code breaking the CIA !!! The the pen, how can Lenovo not have instructions on how to turn it on ??????  I don?t know if its on or not, doesn?t appear in the Bluetooth device list on the laptop... So is this Active Pen computable with this laptop ?If it is, how the chuff do you turn it on ? If not compatible, what Other active pens are comparable ? frustrated... grrrrrrr

Initial problem:On the  29th June 2016 my laptop suddenly turned off and now only the backlit keyboard lights up and goes off again and the power button just goes on and off.After about 5 minutes of use before the error the screen went blue and shut down. After restarting, as it went onto the desktop the screen flickered constantly and was unusable. I then turned it off again and it wont turn on since. My issue now:Anyway after emailing lenovo, and sending it off they said it was the RAM. However after enquiring over a month after sending it off and paying for the repair they replied with:'We have received feedback from our repair provider in relation to your device in repair. Unfortunately due to non-availability of parts we are unable to complete this repair. We will send your faulty device back to you free of charge. Once we have the part in stock you can re-book the repair again free of charge.' Since last summer, I have emailed multiple times and they have replied saying it still isn't in stock. I just feel like I am being treated unfairly as the laptop wasn't even 2 years old and it's broke and they will not fix it. I don't want to have to  do it myself as that will probably cause its own problem, but its the principal that they should fix their mistake! I have seen a youtube video of the same problem on the same laptop so it is obviously an issue. Any ideas on what I can do to get this issue solved would be great, even if its the email to ...

Hello everyone I was wondering if anyone knows whether the Lenovo Active Pen is also compatible with the yoga 920, or whether only the Lenovo Active Pen 2 works. Moreover, I was wondering if the Lenovo Active Pen also looses contact when writing if you hold the pen close to the nub. Thanks! for your help

A:Lenovo yoga 920 compatible with Lenovo active pen

Hi huQbbTCi,
 
Greetings.
 
Lenovo active pen 1 is also compatible with Yoga 920 as shown in the accessories search tool here PART # GX80K32884. It would be less sensitive to depth perception but with palm rejection enabled then you may not have the same issue on losing contact with it. 
 
It would also be favorable to have it tried first before any purchase specially if you have someone that have it and compare it with other active pens whichever would be comfortable and efficient to your writing style.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Does anybody know who mfg of the Lenovo is using for the 1TB SSD M.2 PCIe NVMe Opal2 card for P52?

A:Lenovo P52 NVMe Opal2 Storage?

I don't think there is a parts list published yet for the P52.  Looking at the Lenovo site, right now, I don't see a way to order a machine that has a 1TB SSD.  Right now, configuration choices are still limited and some options are not yet availabile, do to some parts being in short supply.  All I can say is that on the P51, the 1TB PCIe SSDs were generally made by samsung.
