Q: Lenovo yoga 2.1 startup problem

Greetings. I have the Lenovo Yoga 2.1 with the sad and it will not start. It was in the charger all night. I came home, the white light in the power button was on.

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 bought a Lenovo laptop in August 2016 and it has been fine till I system restored it because of space  that were being used up to try and clear all of it out. I system restored this laptop February 26 and it is in a start up loop. Lenovo appears on the screen and it says welcome and a little circle thing spins then it goes black then loops again. I can go into bios I can press all buttons but nothing happens even if I try to switch settings so I am asking for any suggesting and resolutions. Because I don't have the money right now to replace the labtop. Thank you for all the responses in advanced.

When I start up my Lenovo Yoga 910, I don't seem to have an issue.  As in, it starts quickly, the computer seems to work fine.  However, the splash screen is messed up somehow.  I've searched online for a solution but can't seem to find anybody else that is having the problem. Here is what it looks like: I tried updating the bios, but I am on the latest version.  I really don't want to try and do a factory restart.

I bought Lenovo YOGA 51014IKB a while back and when I turn it on I need to wait for 15 minute to use it smoothly and the screen blinks and go black or negative picture from time to time and I don't know why  I send it to the company and told them the problem ..they changed the HD and told me there isn't a thing wrong with the screen that did not solve any of the problems above that did not solve any of the problems above and when I decided to send back again the screen got a crack on it ..it's superfacial and the touch and the display aren't affected but I worry that they will refuse to take it and say that the problem from the crack and not before  so my questions are : 1- what causes the slow startup and the blinking screen? 2- what are the solutions? 3- am I still covered by the warranty or not? and thank you

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.

Hi, I have a Lenovo yoga 910.  I lost my charger, so i die buy a new one. Did't work so i got a other one. Still not working. Problems i have: 1. It won't charge (no light to the indicator)2. It won't start up (no little sound, nothing.)3. Battery is empty so i can't do anything on the laptop it self. So that's not a option. I die try the 30 to 60 seconds power button press. With and without the battery.  Also the novo button.  Still nothing. So what can i do?   Is it a option to try a other adapter (got only a weaker adapter from a tablet) or   just use a normal c USB cable in the powerknop and connecting that with the laptop to see  what the laptop does?   (Need to be sure i won't  do anything to the laptop it self.) Thanks for the help anyway!

Just booted up my old Lenovo Yoga 12 from a few years ago. I erased all partitions and installed Windows 10 from an ISO file on a USB flash drive and it's been freezing constantly. Sometimes to the point that it's unusable. I've wiped and reinstalled 4-5 times and still keeps freezing so I wiped and reinstalled Windows 8.1 from and ISO file and it still freezes. Once it freezes, everything locks except for the cursor. I can't open or close anything or even use CTRL-ALT-DEL to pull up task manager. Anyone with any thoughts on this? At first I suspected it was the OS but now trying 2 different OS's and still freezing I suspect it could be a hardware issue? Totally lost and don't know where to proceed with this.

Hi! I recently bought the Lenovo Yoga 460 and the Lenovo Thinkpad Active Capacitive Pen. When drawing I experience problems with "cursor jittering" trying to draw a smooth line is impossible. Even if I place a ruler on the screen and draw the line end up jagged and bumpy. It's the same using both the built in pen and the Active pen, and in every art program. The effect is worse if I try to draw slow. Is this normal? Is the digitizer this bad? /Tobias

Hello! I'm having a rotatation problem - the screen doesn't rotate itself automaticly on Win10 - I actually have to turn on and off the auto-rotate button to do the rotation - but it's not the cause right now.  After that I decided to update the BIOS in order to eliminate that problem (at least I hoped for that) - so I downloaded a file from Lenovo site (bacna0ww). It updated itself but it didn't actually turned off the computer (the closing screen turned on for a second and got back to my desktop), so I had to turn it off by myself. After that it got updated (shortly saying) and then the "boot menu" appeard with a boot device to choose - which is my SSD (nothing else). I can choose the device by clicking enter but nothing happens. Screen flickers for a moment and got back immiedietly to the same boot menu with a SSD to choose as a boot device.  I was able to boot it by setting "legacy boot" and turning off UEFI by it - but why it actually happend? Can I turn it back as it was before? I tried installing the older BIOS version (it installed with an automatic restart without a problem) but it didn't help. The "boot menu" on UEFI still appears and still holds me back, so I can't boot by simply choosing my SSD and clicking enter on it. Will you be able to help me? Moreover - the auto rotation still doesn't work.

we've dealt with these problems before, unfortunately this time we cannot find the onekey recovery for this particular model.  ive scoured the net and come up null.  basically the system image and recovery image is corrupted on the msata ssd.  regular recovery media will not detect the ssd nor will the bios.  the OS partition is intact and not corrupt.  ive tried rebuilding the bcd to no avail.  normally we can generally get a system image from the manufacturer and backup files and reinstall via image, but Lenovo refuses to issue a recovery as the warranty expired on Jan 1st 2016.  So basically the customer is out a pricey computer because lenovo will not provide a recovery, even with serial and proof of purchase.  Traditional reinstall will not work either as it needs to be flashed via an image.  i find it to be ridiculous as the customer has no recourse to correct the issue.  i have verified the ssd is functioning correctly via an external adapter that I use to work with msata/m.2/mpcie etc.  Im at a loss here on what to do as Lenovo is zero help.  Does anyone here have the recovery for the yoga 2 pro please and thank you.

It sometimes has fan noise like running a huge apps, althought i just starting up it and open light apps like internet, and office. When it comes, the battery just can hold up to 2-3 hours. But, the other time with the same condition (openning the same apps), the fan noise literally too silent that i have to get my ear to the source to hear the noise. and it comes with the battery life much longer between 7-10 hours. Why it comes like that? Is that any settings that I have to set? or? Thank you.

Hi, I just got a Surface Pro 3 stylus from a friend, to use with my Lenovo Yoga 2. The stylus is designed for capacitive screen. So I assume it should works with the Lenovo Yoga 2 (At least I hope).I paired it both of them together (see screenshot). But I have to admit during the pairing, the bar stopped at like 10 % and then it said Paired (my other bluetooth devices goes up to 100% before it pairs).But it does not seems to works.I can't use the pen at all. My friend admitted it was not the orriginal pen as he lost it, but it still worked perfectly like the original. It is called Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 N-trig  Stylus Capacitive electromagnetic pen, he said. My bluetooth driver are updated to the latest available for the lenovo yoga pro. I really wish to be able to use this pen to draw. Thank you very much for all help you may provide.

Hello, last thursday I got my brand new Lenovo laptop Yoga 710-15IKB. Everything went smoothly with the setup and the computer looked great was working fine. When I finished setting up some essential programs browser etc, and was watching a youtube video my laptop just froze, fan was running but the screen keyboard cursor frozen. I thought nothing of it and restarted my computer and nothing happened after that. So I thought I was free to enjoy my good looking device. But now after my third usage I closed my laptop and went out to run some errands I came back an hour later or so and tried to open my computer and keep on using it but to my surprise the screen stayed black. Completely black, no flickering or anything. So i tried to reboot it by holding the start button down for 10s giving the computer a minute or so to rest then turned it back on. Same thing happens Keyboard lights up for a second or two then the fans just keep running and the screen stays completely black. This is extremely frustrating since this is a brand new computer and I desperately need it for studying and work. Screen black, computer starts and runs I can hear the fans keyboard lights up at first but screen is completely black. I would appreciate a quick response Lenovo, I had so high hopes for my new laptop. Best regards, Elisabet.

Hi I just got a new Lenovo Yoga 710 14IKB today and i've been noticing that sometimes when I'm watching video's on Youtube the sound only starts playing after 5 seconds. So the video is already playing but the sound starts at 0:05 (the delay is always the same amount of time). I don't have this problem with every video, it seems to be a random thing and it only happens when watching videos on speaker, the problem does not happen when I'm listening through my earphones. It's not a major problem but it's still quite annoying.Is there a way I can fix this myself? I'm not realy knowledgeable when it comes to these kind of things, the only thing I know how to do is reinstall the drivers.

Worked without any problem. Now changed the screen: DELL 27" (Dell U2713HM) . This screen should be able to provide WQHD 2560 x 1440 pixel but max I can choose in the set up (Win 10) is Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel. I did the full program; 1. deleting drivers (Graphic and Monitor) reinstalled newest versions provided from Lenovo/Dell website,2. tried 3 different cables (HDMI and DVI), no differences :-(3. Installed Dell SetUp tool4. Installed intel set up tool (Could enter the high resolution manually here as personal setting, but does not work either) Nothing helped :-( screent stays on 1920 x 1080 :-( This 27" screen was running connected to a MacBook Pro without any problem in max. resolution 2560 x 1440 before.  Due to my research the Intel HD 5300 should be able to handle 2560 x 1440. Looking forward to helpful repliesDennis
