Lenovo IDEAPAD Y910-17ISK - Lenovo System Interface Foundation problem

Q: Lenovo IDEAPAD Y910-17ISK - Lenovo System Interface Foundation problem

HI!!! I have the above mentioned ntb. I noticed that the Lenovo Settings is saying that there is a problem with the Lenovo System Interface Foundation, the same goes with Lenovo Vantage, and it provided me with the possibility to update it. I downloaded the offered file, the instalation runs without a problem, I restart the computer but the problem with the LSIF was still there. I uninstaled Lenovo Settings and Vantage, and now I am not able to install it again. When I want to get Lenovo Vantage from the store, I am receiving and error message, that it canīt be installed, error code: 0x80073CFB. Thx for an advice how to deal with this. Ondrej

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.

I am very dissatisfied with the lenovo services, that can not be accepted. I sent my laptop to the lenovo uk service to repair it on 06.12.2017 and since then I have not repaired it until now, already there for two and a half months. Only promises and lies come from them. I bought the laptop with 2000 euros and I invested in upgrades 600 euros to fill the empty slots (rams and ssd disks) and broke after 3 months of operation, but I still have not got my laptop repaired or new one. In this way, lenovo appreciates customers who give a lot of money on their products.. so their customers are so appreciated..I have decided if the case will not be resolved soon, I will sue (will go to the court) and complain to the police.. It's a big shame for such a big company to do that with his clients..there are many incidents in which customers are cheated.. manny people i have the same problem with customers lenovo just look: https://youtu.be/g5s35cfqeKUhttps://youtu.be/mwHGZ4MJFvc and there are many cases of that kind.... so this is lenovo's support!!!!

Hello.  With a problem related to a gaming in DeusEx Mankind Devided on my Lenovo ideapad 300-17ISK with only intel HD 520 graphics I want to ask a question: how many memory dedicated to my graphics from RAM when very hungry application runed on Windows 10 x64? In CPU specs it value fixed on 32Gb max thats maximum of CPU support. I whant ask how many memory can my laptop dedicate to HD 520 when I use 4Gb of RAM or 8Gb of ram. Second question is about can my laptop support DDR4 memory or only DDR3L is avalible because I wanth to upgrade it.

Have my laptop an option to incrase a dedicated VRAM to a value of 4Gb? Because it is a minimal system requirements to play DeusEx Mankind Devided. Please give me the answers ...

Hi, I have 2 of these laptops and one has a battery problem. In Win10 it shows that it can only charge to 93%. I can leave it for few hours and it will still only say 93%. If I take power brick from the other (that can charge to 100%) charging stops at 94%. The light indicator is white when on 93% but the % in windows indicator is bothering (not to me, but to the user). I think that there is a problem in Win10 indicator (since light indicator lights white), but even formating (and converting from Legacy to EFI) didn't solved the problem. Is there a problem with battery? EDIT: At what % does LED turns from orange to white? I checked indicator for white LED when laptop was turned off and charging. So I can't confirm if it charged to 100% and if it charges to 100% when turned on.

Dear Lenovo Staff,I'm experiencing multiple issues running Ubuntu on Lenovo Y700-17ISK laptop:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/Problems-running-Ubuntu-on-Lenovo-Y700-17ISK/td-p/3278... At the end, I installed Windows 10 alongside with Ubuntu 16.04 only because of BIOS updating.During the last month or two, it was impossible to find any BIOS file on 'Y700-17ISK Laptop - Lenovo Support' web page.Today I finally found a new BIOS update file: Released 7/18/2016, Version CDCN35WW. But when - hoping to solve problems running Ubuntu on Lenovo Y700 - I attempted to install this latest BIOS update file through Windows 10, I got the following error message: "the version of ROM file is the same as that of BIOS". And then I found this forum post (05-18-2016):"Please be advised that Lenovo is in the process of removing the BIOS CDCN35WW for ideapad Y700-15ISK, Y700 Touch-15ISK, and Y700-17ISK laptops in response to customer reports that the software does not execute as expected. Once the issue has been corrected, CDCN35WW or a newer version of the BIOS will be made available". Once the issue has been corrected, CDCN35WW version of the BIOS will be made available again????????So I downgraded my BIOS CDCN35WW to BIOS CDCN30WW, and after that I installed again BIOS CDCN35WW - everything went well, but now my BIOS shows it is CDCN30WW version??? I would be very grateful for any help, thanks in advance.

Every time I turn on my computer I get messages telling me that I need to restart the computer to finish setting up the system interface foundation device. Everything is up to date, so what is wrong? In addition (I don't know if it is related), the computer has been freezing intermittently for a minute or so. The normal service resumes, but it is annoying and time-wasting. Any ideas?

ThinkPad Helix 2, came with Windows 8, upgraded to Windows 10.  Having quite a few problems that I am solving one by one.  Computer is running slow and the memory is saturated. 
 
Try to run "Lenovo Companion" to see if I can address some issues I am having.  When I go to use this program, I get a popup to install "Lenovo System Interface Driver" for "full functionality".  After the file is downloaded, it will not completely install.  Get error messages toward the end.
 
Two questions:  1) Is Lenovo Companion helpful, or just bloatware?  2) If it is helpful, how can I successfully install it?
 
Thank you.

Hello guys, Yesterday i bought a brand new Ideapad Y910-17ISK with GTX1070 8GB. There are two things that worries me.

Actually i can see in nerve center information for the fans and fan2 work with 3000rpm but fan1 is freeze on 0rpm. I can't feel any air flow  from the right side which is fan1.

The second thing is that i run Heaven benchmark 4.0 and the last screen with the info i saw that detect my videocard with 4GB but should be 8GB !

Since I purchased this AIO I have had an issue with the screen going blank/black at random times from the first day. It came installed with windows 10 home, it was not updated to windows 10. At Idle it has done it also, but most of the time it is during game play, surfing the internet, watching videos.  The screen will go black for about 5 seconds and come back on.  Sometimes it will do it 2 or 3 times in a row one after another.  I have tried everything, disconnecting all usb, printers etc.  I have uninstalled all programs and also did a complete reset of the machine and it still happens. I also thought it was a heat issue and monitored the fans and temps, not overheating. I updated all the drivers and windows updates nothing works. I am not sure if its a windows 10 problem or a hardware problem.  below is the specs: i7 6700gtx1080256 ssd2tb hd27 inch LED panelwindows 10 home Has anyone experienced this or have a fix.

I am using lenovo laptop from last december and I am unhappy with first day from using it. the hard disk is running super slow.  So After a lot of research and checking I remove the System interface software and my computer perform normal. My 35K Asus laptop perform faster than 45K Lenovo laptop. (Even lenovo laptop is 7th gen and Asus is 6th gen). Today I installed it back System interface and now when I backup (one key recovery). 9 hours is gone and the software say 6 more hours to complete the backup. Now if I remove it, it take only 1 hours 30 minutes to finish the backup. so it's performing 10% of what it perform without having system interface. Can someone from lenovo explain why they make garbage things like this. When I read about bluefish and now this thing happening blow my mind.

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

Is there a tried and proven solution out there? I have had a look at the solutions on the forum and am not satisfied that the solutions offered prove that the problem has been resolved.

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!
