Lenovo Y520 Wifi Problem

Q: Lenovo Y520 Wifi Problem

Hey all, Just recently bought a Lenovo Y520 gaming laptop. Overall very satisified with it! Last week I added an SSD drive to it and decided to do a fresh reformat from the BIOS so the laptop would run at full power without any bloatware holding it back. Did the reformat sucessfully, installed all drivers, and now the laptop is running perfectly, except for one thing. Since the reformat, Wifi has been giving me constant problems. I've tried just about every solution available on the net but so far have had no luck. It's main issue is: when I go to power on the laptop after being turned off for an extended period of time (at least 8-10 hours), there's no wifi at all whatsoever. Windows doesn't detect my wifi at all, even under network adapters! I've downloaded the latest drivers directly from Lenovo and even took it one step further by getting direct drivers from intel themselves. In this condition, it only detects my ethernet port, so when I go to diagnose it, it doesn't consider Wifi an issue because it doesn't think it exists. The ONLY solution to get Wifi to work for me is to restart the computer at least once, load up the BIOS, go to the Configurations tab and disable/re-enable Wireless Lan. After that, I boot it with the saved changes and boom, Wifi suddenly works again. Thing is, I shouldn't have to do this every time to get Wifi to work. Before the reformat, the Wifi was working absolutely fine with no issues whatsoever. It wasn't until after the reformat that this started. I've already changed the settings under device manager so that the Wifi stays on all the time. Unfortunately it made no difference at all. I should add that when this problem is occurring, Bluetooth isn't detectable at all either. Until I do the BIOS trick, Wifi or bluetooth don't exist. As I've said, I've already scoured the internet trying to fix this incredibly annoying issue but so far no luck. Every suggestion put forward I've attempted with no luck at all. Please help!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

My Lenovo Y520 is facing this very weird issue, I am sitting nearly 6 feets from my Wifi router to which network both my phone and my Lenovo machine are connected to. But Internet speed test (tested on fast.com  on phone gives me a 40Mbps speed while on my Legion Y520 gives a measly 1 Mbps at a stretch. What could be going on?

Hello all. I am about to buy the Legion Y520-15IKBN. It's the i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060  version. I have 2 questions though before I buy it.  1. I have a Seagate Barracuda 5TB 2,5" HDD, a Samsung 960 Evo NVMe 500GB and a HyperX Impact 16GB DDR4-2400 laptop RAM. Can I install them on this model or if I open it it will void the warranty?  2. The laptop comes with no OS. I have Windows 10 on my desktop PC. Since Windows are connected to the Outlook account (I think), will I be able to install and activate them on the laptop or I have to buy new? Thank you very much for any answers

Hey guys, I just bought this computer today and I have encountered this problem. When I go to control panel -> display / dxdiag / AIDA64, I can only see Intel HD 630, but not my GTX 1050. I have tried reinstalling latest drivers and I changed the settings in NVIDIA control panel. I am using Windows 10 Pro. Thank you  

A:Lenovo Y520 dedicated GPU not showing

Hi Adomce123, 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Have you tried running dx diag with a high graphic application software running alongside?
 
The automatic switch from Intel to NVIDIA would happen when there is demand for it thus you were allowed to re install NVIDIA drivers and use the NVIDIA control setting since it was available in your system. This can also be checked in your device manager as well as lenovo diagnostics to confirm if the NVIDIA device if available.
 
Try going in the BIOS and verify options under Configuration Menu for graphic device to run on Discrete or UMA only as option. F10 to save setting before exit.
 
Update us how it goes.
 
Regards

I have recently purchased a brand new Lenovo Legion Y520 15IKBM (Specs: i7 7700HQ, 16GB RAM, 128gb SSD + 1TB HDD, GTX 1060) and I'm liking it so far. It would be perfect for me if it wasn't for a couple issue that have been plaguing me. First: sometimes the system takes relatively long to boot. Usually it'll just show me Lenovo's logo for a couple of seconds and take me straight to the login screen, but sometimes it would stay on the logo for 10-15 seconds (without even showing the circling "loading" dots), then the screen would go blank for a few extra seconds and only then I would be on the login screen. And when it does that, the system continues to be considerably slower than usual even after login. Rebooting the system (sometimes twice) fixes the issue entirely. This happens regardless of whether or not the laptop is plugged in, but it seems to happen consistently on the first time I turn on the laptop after unplugging it. There are also times where, when I turn off the laptop, the screen turns off but the keyboard, power LED and fans are still powered for a LONG time. The second issue would be the system freezing seemingly at random, no matter if I'm playing a game or doing lightweight work. The whole OS would just lock up and either unfreeze after 10 to 30 seconds or straight up bluescreen with a KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR. I would provide a memory dump, but apparently the system is set by default to not create any. That, and sometimes it would just bluescreen ... Read more

A:Lenovo Y520 stability issues

Hello there!I came here to share these same issues with my own Y520, when I saw your post. The difference is that MY Legion don't even let me to factory reset it, or run chkdsk, but beside these, I've tried everything. This is a pretty good laptop, but if it continues working like this, I will have to take it back, because I can't work on it properly like this.

My lenovo legion Y520 touchpad isn't responding at all, it is working fine for the first 1-2 hours when i use it, then suddenly it stops working for no reason at all, it got fixed everytime i restart the laptop, but it's too troublesome when im doing some work, here's some weird thing :1. When i go to the setting, the touchpad didn't have any option available but the touchpad sensivity,2. On the device manager the ELAN pointing device is up and running3. On the mouse properties it also says that the smartpad is enabled, but it didn't respond, not even the left-click and the right-click4. Everything else is working normally, Fn+F6 shows that the touchpad is on or off but the touchpad isnt responding when it was turned onI tried googling but couldn't found any similar problems to mine, i hope some experts could help up, thanks in advance! Edit : Im currently using windows 10
