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.

My ideapad laptop has had decreased battery life since the end of last summer.  I chalked it up to playing too many games for an extended period of time - leaving battery and AC adapter in for days (in hindsight, bad idea, but I didn't want to crack it open quite yet). After running some tests here and there, I figured probably the best thing to do was replace the battery.  I had previously had to replace the AC adapter for a very minor issue, but I bought the replacement from Lenovo.  I also bought a new replacement battery from Lenovo. Today is the first day I've placed the battery in the laptop (it's been boxed for a few months while I've been at college).  While there is a drastic increase in performance (the old battery would last maybe 45 minutes at BEST on power saver mode), I am still only getting maybe 1.5 on my new battery.  I've tried updating the battery driver.  I tried updating the BIOS, but I'm getting an error which says something along the lines of the rom is the same, leading me to believe my BIOS is already updated. I've tried calibrating the battery using this guide by howtogeek.  (edit)  I don't think it's very effective, as I still see sometimes the time suddenly drop or increases, no steady prediction of time, and the percentage seems to drop very quickly as soon as it is unplugged.  I am not sure when or if it levels off. Is this an issue with calibration or capacity?  I ha...

Hey, I just recently bought a Lenovo Y700. Paricular model's specs (if of any use):i7-6700HqNvidia GeForce 960M 4GB16 GB RAM250 M2 Samsung 850 SSD1TB HDD 5400RPM The question I want to ask - is anyone here had a Lenovo y700-ISK15 for a while now and can say anything about the battery life? Like in the long run, not how much it last in a day. Around what time does it begin to underperform, does it suffer from long term charging way after 100% is reached, most importantly - when should you expect to change it?Thank you for your response,Dear user

Hello,I am the proud owner of a Y700-15isk and for the past few weeks, I can't get my battery to charge up. First there was a problem with the AC adaptor. So I bought a new one. When my battery still wouldn't charge, I also bought a new one.Now I have a brand new AC adaptor & battery but the battery still won't charge. Do you have any idea what's wrong with my laptop and how to repair it ?

I'm having an issue with the battery on my Y700. I generally work from my dining room table where I have the laptop connected to the charger and the charger plugged into the wall.  It sits getting power all day as I work. Consistetly in the mid-afternoon if I'm around I will discover that my laptop is no longer charging and that the power has run down to single digits.  If I unplug the charger from the laptop and plug it back in occasionally it will detect the charger and start taking a charge again.  Sometimes it will start charging again if I remove it from the wall.  Sometimes it will start taking a charge again if I remove the power cord from the charger. I replaced the charger with one that has a power light on it to see what was happening.  When the laptop gets down to single digits the power light is off.  If I disconnect from the laptop and re-plug it in to the wall the light comes back on.  However when I plug it in to the laptop the light will dim and then turn off. It's almost like the laptop is essentially forcing itself to discharge the battery once a day, which now that I type it sounds like a GREAT thing to preserve battery life, but not knowing where this feature is so I can make changes to it is not helping me be confident in using the laptop for a whole lot. Anyone else found this issue occuring?

Hello community. I'm passively testing the battery of my newly purchased laptop and something happened that gives me doubts. Firstly, yesterday after suspending windows I realized that the Nvidia GPU stopped working totally, it is assumed that Nvidia optimus can decrease the performance of the GPU but not turn it off completely, as was my case. At that moment I can not make it work and I had to restart windows.  Today this happened to me again and I immediately noticed that the estimated battery time increased dramatically. What I want to know is if this is the preamble of a problem with the GPU or if it is a normal function of the Power saver. In case it is the second, I would like to know if there is any way to turn on the GPU without restarting windows. Thanks!

My laptop worked normally in France, but on September 20th I activated the express charge function and the battery only charged to 63%. After that, I noticed that the battery doesn't charge at all, and that I have to work with my computer plugged in to the power outlet, otherwise it dies.

Hi, I've been experiencing this throttling issue for the past month now ( I've had this laptop since January). The fps drop from 170 to 60 for a couple of seconds and go back up to the initial value. I've had this issue a couple of times before but it would fix itself after restart (usually had it when I wake the laptop from sleep and immediately load CS:GO).  Now, I notice that this happens everytime I start playing and the temp goes above 69 degrees - I used to play with 170-200fps before with GPU temps surpassing 80 degrees with no fps drops at all.  This is really frustrating, especially when knowing that my brother has no FPS drops using my 5 year old Lenovo Y570 with  geforce GT 555m...Is there any way to fix this? I mean the gaming experience, as stated above was fine until a week ago, when I started getting these FPS drops, so that means that this issue can actually be fixed. Specs are Intel Core i7-6700HQGTX960M 4GB12 GB DDR4256GB SSD  ( CS:GO is on the SSD if that matters)I use Speedfan to check the temps. CS:GO is using the nvidia gpu, and the gpu is se to performance, power saving is disabled i am using balanced performance and set all advanced settings to maximum performance.

Hello, I recently bought a Lenovo Y700-15ISK with i5 6300HQ, Geforce GTX 960, 1 TB WD HDD (No SSD). I really like this laptop. But there are some serious issues that I don't know how to fix. First of all, I have installed Windows 10 Home edition. I disabled all the windows 10 problems, that were eating my memory, hdd. But I still find my computer quite slow when working... I expected it to be a beast. Actually it takes about 90 seconds to boot Windows 10. It's not normal... I saw worse laptops boot much faster... And the programs: When I double click My computer it takes like 3-4 seconds to open it. The second time I double click it it's much faster. Right click also lags. Opening chrome takes like 5 to 10 seconds. And when I install programs, install from ISO files, copy files I can't do anything else. The laptop lags a lot, sometimes freezes. But games like GTA, Fifa work fine - no lag in high graphics. I've done a lot of things, reinstalled the windows - nothing helps. Is this normal? Do I need a SSD for windows 10 or what?.... Or do I need to install windwos 10 as UEFI? But I read that there is not a big difference. The HDD has no errors, checked it many times, the transfer speeds are good. The next thing, I decided to go to Windows 7 64 bit on this notebook. The good old windows that I always liked. I installed it. And... I also have problems... Actually this windows works much faster, better. But I can't install the Audio device and Bluetooth (well bluetooth i... Read more

Hello Guys,I have my Y700 with specification bellow +- 5month and it for some reason starts overheating.Processor: Intel Core i5-6300HQGraphic card: Nvidia gefore 960m (is set as default for games) I didn't have such a problems in the end of the summer, when I was playing Dead by Dayling on ultra settings. Before 3 weeks it begins overheating more and more even if the air around is much cooler then before. I tried to put the game settings on the minimum specs- still no changes. I have my cooling pad, so the air can go out under the laptop. I even tried a fresh new instalation of windows 10, but nothing helps. What came to my mind was, that the dust can be inside, but after 5 months, it can't be so bad.

Hello All, I have several issues with my Y700-15ISK. I have the latest BIOS (CDCN35NWW or something from 2016/03/29) (in EUFI mode). The latest one, before all BIOS updates in connection with Y700 15ISKi disappeared from the Lenovo sites. I mostly use the latop with an external monitor via HDMI. Sometimes (I could not find a rule when) it starts to display red dots over the screen. If it is 3D graphics it moves along with the texture. You can see screenshots in the link below. The second problem is that the display goes black at random times and then it comes back after a 1-2 seconds. It is like when you change the resolution. The 3rd problem is when the BIOS is in EUFI mode sometimes I get a VGA error 43 in the Windows Device Manager. The system tells me that it had problems with the device and disabled it completely. The solution for this is to reset the BIOS back to factory defaults and reconfigure it to the desired state. This is jus ta workaround because this problem can occur also totally random. I've tested my external display with my other laptop Lenovo T440s with DisplayPort to HDMI converter and the same HDMI cable. Never experienced any problems. Tried Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 64 bit systems and all the Chipset, and VGA drivers which came out since then (provided by both Lenovo and Nvidia). Pictures of the screen:https://1drv.ms/f/s!AmvQYqr8ukT-gYg6a85wd6zmvNESxw Could you help me identify the core of the problem?  Tha...

Hi I recently bought an Ideapad Y700-14isk. The model is 80NU000WUS. I am having issues with the battery. Since the first day the battery life has been very poor. While using windows 10 power saving settings, and also graphics options set to power save, I am only able to get 1.5-2 hours when running minimal programs and no games. I just use chrome to study but the battery life is incredibly poor. Has anyone else been having issues with the 14" version? I was wondering if the battery is upgradeable to a higher capacity, and where I could possibly buy one from. I understand its a gaming laptop but 2 hours on a full charge while studying power point slides in the chrome browser is just too poor for me. Please let me know if any of you have this issue, and if there is a way to buy a higher capacity battery. Any input helps. Thanks in advance.  I spoke to tech support twice and both times they seemed very clueless.

So I wanted to ask: 1. Does it have a free M.2 port? all models of the Y700-15ISK should have them, or am I wrong? 2. Which type of M.2 SSD does it support? M or B+M? I already sent the same questions to the retailer, but I am still waiting for an answer so thought I'd ask here as well.

I was going on a train, so i turned off my laptop to get it in my backpack. When i tried to boot it in the train, the screen was not turning on. It stayed like that. I've tried many things (battery drain, bios update and else) but it just doesn't work. I can plug in an external monitor an it is just fine. I'm just reminding you that the screen is OFF, it doesn't show anything through the bootup and in the windows. The external monitor is considered as a main one, and i can go to bios through it. I really don't know what happened, and i couldn't find any way to fix it in the internet. So i ask, do you know the problem ? If yes, then can i do something besides just sending it to service ?

Hi! The latest V53 BIOS have two annoying bugs: 1. After putting laptop into sleep mode and turning it on again after 'some' time front speakers not working, only subwoofer works and playing lofreq only. After system reboot front speakers backs and plays normally. Sometimes that problem doesn't happen, all works nominally after laptop wake up. 2. After putting headphone plug into socket and remove it and putting plug again headphones output not work anymore - front speakers going to off state and no any sound output goes to headphones. After plug remove speakers back to playing normally, but headphone output not. Thats happens after laptop wake up from sleep mode and 'clean' reboot state too. In my opinion that problem is related to EC? firmware, after laptop wake up controller not properly reinitialized to 'normal' state and broke Realtek chip or drivers. System reboot fixes that problem because EC restarting/resetting when you done this. Tried reflashing BIOS to the same version - not fixing that problem too. Also I tested various Relatek drivers versions - from oldest to newest (and latest official Lenovo and latest official Realtek) - the problem exist at any tested drivers version. For reference what I use:- BIOS V53- UEFI mode with Secure Boot turned on and System Optimized enabled- Clean installed Windows 10 x64 1607 from MSDN with all latest updates and drivers installed- Realtek drivers v6.0.1.8018 WHQL (and from ...

I recently bought this laptop and I have two problems:1. Especially when the screen is black, there is a green light on the upper part of the screen. I don't know what causes it maybe a led or something is installed badly (it's a 5 cm² area). Should I take it back and ask for a new one?2. This problem is related to scaling. When it is set to 100%, everything is small but crystal clear. When at 150%, everything looks normal but some apps like Steam, BitTorrent... are blurry like they were just zoomed on. Reinstalling windows and drivers should solve this? Simply reinstalling drivers didn't help.Thanks!

A:Lenovo Y700-15ISK screen issues

I don't know anything about your first problem (it may be a hardware problem), but I do know something about the second. Some programs (Steam, for example) aren't made for high-dpi screens. for these programs that appear blurry, right click on their icon (on the desktop), and click properties. Under the compatibility tab, check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". This should work after you restart the program.

Hey everyone. I have a small problem with my Lenovo Y700-15ISK laptop. The laptop is in the 8gb RAM, 960M graphics card and 1tb HDD configuration. The HDD is clearly the bottleneck for me, so I've bought an m.2 SSD that I'd like to install alongside the main HDD. The SSD that I've bought is a Kingston 240GB (SUV500M8) that has SATA III connectivity. I've installed the SSD, but as soon as I start the laptop, it stays stuck at the Lenovo splash screen. Also, when the SSD is installed, I can't enter the bios. As soon as I take it off, the laptop works as normal again. Does that mean that the SSD I've bought is not compatible with this laptop, or am I missing something (like some bios setting)?Thanks in advance for anyone who will (hopefully) reply and help me shed some light on my problem.
