Differences: Lenovo Yoga 330 vs Lenovo Miix 320

Q: Differences: Lenovo Yoga 330 vs Lenovo Miix 320

Hello, guys. This is my first post. Please be kind. Been an Apple user ever since (Mac, iPhone, iPad, etc.). But lately have been excited with the hardware from "the dark side", especially that of Microsoft (Surface Pro 6 and Surface Go) and Lenovo (Yoga 530). I've also been window shopping for a secondary device which can be used for most basic tasks like surfing the web, checking e-mails, social media, chat, YouTube and Netflix, and maybe working on some office documents like Word, Excel, PPT and Outlook. Need something small and lightweight. Seeing both the Yoga 330 and Miix 320 in the market, seems like their specs are exactly or very much the same, even the price. Apart from their sexy form factors (360 convertible vs detachable), what other differences do they have? I've seen the 4GB/64GB models of both of them. TIA. Additional: If you were to choose one, which would it be and why?

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.)

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.

Hello I have a Lenovo Miix 700 since last week and it just has not been working. I think its particularly the touch screen. in tablet mode, it becomes unresponsive, and the only way to get it back is to press the on/off button which  will bring responsiveness for a few seconds only. It does it if i am in laptop mode and switch to tablet or if I start it in tablet mode alone. using the laptop seems ok, though slow at times. any ideas?

Good day, This post is to comment about my experience of installing Fedora 28 in my MiiX 310. I will be brief, I just installed yesterday and I am checking multiple things recently. First, you don't need to put "nomodeset" "i915.modeset=1" on grub in Fedora 28, it runs without that. It will take a little time and the screen will look weird for some minutes but bear with it and you will get into desktop without problems. Installation runs great without problems (I didn't activate the wifi card). The only thing you have to do manually is rotating the screen, you can do it in grub or using "xrandr --output DSI-1 --rotate right" without "sudo". You have to calibrate the touchscreen when you put it into panoramic view, check this guide how to do it: https://esc.sh/blog/linux-on-lenovo-miix-320/ So far, the external SD is recognized and works ok. I am having problems with the sound but I will try blacklisting a module some people mentioned  before. Camera is not working and there is no work around (yet). I will try the "disablewhiletyping" option with libinput for the touchpad. I am using Fedora 28 Xfce spin. I have it updated with only the official opensource repos.   If any of you had luck activating the camera, let me know please. I hope this brief and humble post is helpful to anyone.

Hey there, ever since I reinstalled Windows 10 on this tablet my wifi connection's been really funky, dropping the connection quite often. It dosen't matter if I am a meter away from the router. Usually, the connection completely cuts off leaving me with no wifi at all. I am not sure what to do. The problem consists in regular as in energy saving mode. It also dosen't matter if the tablet is docked. I've already installed all necessary drivers, whether it be wifi or chipset drivers. It just won't change. Even got the official wifi drivers off the realtek website, although with zero success. What can I do to fix this issue? Is it hardware related? I assume it's some kind of energy delivery problem, as it dosen't matter if the tablet is moving or not.

I am having trouble with the trackpad on the MiiX 510. It is often hard to correctly position the cursor, and sometimes I have to remove my finger from the trackpad in order to get it to respond. I have turned off all of the gestures but still don't always get good response. The driver is just a Microsoft driver and I don't see a Synaptics or other trackpad driver available.Any ideas on how to make the trackpad function more reliably? This is my only complaint on an otherwise fine product.

I purchased the Lenovo Miix 320-10ICR Tablet (IdeaPad) on 07/24/2017 at my local Office Depot in Lake Zurich, IL. I have two issues: (1) According to Lenovo, the warranty started on 05/11/2017, more than two months BEFORE it was purchased. They say the warranty end date was 07/09/2018, which is two weeks LESS THAN the full year promised. (2) The round tip of the charger has broken off and I cannot find a replacement. According to the "Hardware Maintenance Manual", the part number is 5A10N38133. It is not available on the Lenovo website. It is not available anywhere else in the United States. The laptop is less than a year old - how am I supposed to keep it charged? Please help! Thank you!

Hi AnnieB345,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Here is the article guide to correct the warranty entitlement.
 
How to correct an incorrect Warranty Date
 
"If you had purchased your machine from a retailer, business partner, reseller, Lenovo starts the Base Warranty at the time the shipment was purchased by the retailer, business partner, or reseller from Lenovo. To compensate for the time the computer may have sat in a warehouse or on the shelf unsold, Lenovo generally adds an additional month to theBase Warranty, Lenovo allows date to be adjusted." 
 
Call in technical support. Have the receipt (proof of purchase) handy to send via email so that they can have it updated and likewise inform them about the adapter so both issues would be handled at the same time.
 
I hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

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....

I have some problems with the Lenovo software. Lenovo Account Portal does not launch Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Settings. Also, Lenovo Solution Center is missing from the Start Menu. The second problem is that some tiles are blank in Start Menu. Seemingly it's the apps that aren't Metro. I'm not sure when the problem started, but I think it was like that since I got the PC. If I right click the apps, the only option will be "Pin to Start", and with some apps: Share and Rate. Here's a picture of the problem:I did already try:Restarting the PC.Doing scannow, DISM, and scannow again.Fixing Registry errors with CCleaner.Updating BIOS and drivers. What can I do to fix the problem?

A:Lenovo Yoga 910 wont load pass the Lenovo screen.

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. 
 
If this doesn't work, let me know.

Hi! I own a Lenovo Yoga 14-ARR (Ryzen 2500U), and there are tons of bugs in need of fixing, but how do we reach Lenovo and the development teams so they can actually be aware of the faults? BIOS- After latest BIOS/UEFI update the CPU clocks is downclocked to 400MHz when battery drops below 20%, after that the unit runs at 400MHz until hard shutdown (holding down the power button), charging doesn't help. one time it did get back again to normal speeds when plugging and unplugging the cable several times. This is NOT a windows power setting. (because it doesn't do anything the CPU clocks when battery level has hit 20% one time)- Adobe Photoshop, Premiere and Da Vinci resolve hangs due to insufficient dedicated VRAM. Please let us choose the amount ourselves in the UEFI! 240MB is abysmall in 2019. 0.5MB or even 1GB is bare minimum for creative work today.- Freesync doesn't work properly on external monitors although it is advertised by AMD. The hardware doesn't recognize the monitors supported resolutions and refresh rates either. although they are fully working on other AMD GPUs with the same generation drivers.- External monitor issues - some resolutions results in flickering, not displaying correctly (even when using "GPU scaling"). and no it's not the cable. I have certified HDMI cables that can run [email protected] just fine on my other computer.- HDMI doesn't support 2560x1440 @ 120Hz, although the Ryzen 2500U should support it technically.

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
