Preferred Solution: Ideapad 510s 14IKB black screen after update bios

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.)

How can I tell if this update is for my laptop? A message popped up saying I have a critical update and then this message says it is only for these models. Is it safe to say if I get this message then my laptop is one of these models? I can't find specifics within my computer to show if I have these models. I know I have a ideapad flex 4, but beyond that I don't know.

My fan is continuously on even at low CPU temps.  Ideapad 510S 14IKB Model 80UV001BUS. On average, my CPU#1 ,#2, and CPU Package temperatures are around 33-35C (89-94F).  I'm using Open Hardware Monitor to get CPU temps.  The fan never stops.  I updated to the latest BIOS and latest ACPI Power Management drivers. Thank you for any ideas.

There have been some security problems with this machine, and I would like to rewrite the bios.  As it happens it also needs to be updated anyway.I can open the self extracing .exe file, 0vcn29ww.exe, and it gives me a directory structure.  But what do I do with it?   I've tried running this .exe file in wine.  I get a dialog with a button to continue.  I push that then it crashes with a "string too long" error.  I've read on some forums that one should make a bootable USB, but with what image?Ah so how does one do a bios update for a 510S-14ISK that is running Linux?

But I can't load anything! It said that it had trouble with the proxy. I've had that problem before the update and solved it by restarting so I tried it again, but it doesn't work. Does anyone have any solution? I really need my laptop. Plenty thanks!

Hi everyone, I have this Ideapad 700 15ISK for a year and half now. The laptop started giving a random shut down issue 3 months back, after trying every possible solutions from the internet, none of them worked out. Someone suggested me to update the BIOS so I downloaded the BIOS for this model from the Lenovo support page. The update process went all fine from what I saw and the system tried to reboot but it's now stuck at the black screen only, the screen is however turned on but nothing shows up. The Lenovo logo does not appear and I can't access the BIOS settings either... None of the function keys seem to get me to the BIOS settings, even tried the NOVO key but still no luck. I read around that resetting the CMOS battery settings might solve the problem but I'm not sure about this am afraid of damaging the internal parts. Is there any ways I can solve this issue?

Till now everything was working great, but now I am expriencing weird issue with sound played back through speaker.  When I play any sound (music or video file) through speaker, sometimes everything is fine, but very often sound is muted for 6 second in the begining and then it plays normally. When I connect headphones, I do not experience any issue.Anybody who experienced similar problems? I tried to uninstall audio driver, install it again, update driver, etc... Nothing helped.

 Hi all,First post!  My Dad's Lenovo laptop goes to a black screen when starting up, so is unusable.I haven't seen it in the flesh yet but have started to research things for him and have found that 'black screen' shows up quite a lot for Windows 10 and Lenovo PCs! We were so impressed with my Dad's PC I've ended up with the same model myself:Lenovo YOGA 500 Convertible Laptop, Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 15.6" Touch Screen.Also labelled as: Yoga 500-15IBD Laptop (ideapad)  I see some people mentioning hardware failures and others device driver problems with the graphic card etc. but haven't read a definite cause/fix for this so far. I've just found this recent critical BIOS update for this PC which mentions the black screen problem:Software name: BDCN63WW Version 63[Important updates] Fix Win 10 lid close black screen issue.http://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Yoga-Series/yoga-500-15ibd/downloads/D...I haven't seen this mentioned in the forums? Has anyone else used this?If the PC always boots to a black screen I'll obviously have trouble installing this! I'm hoping that it will boot in Safe Mode or I'm going to have some trouble installing it?! I don't know whether to install the BIOS update on my own machine which is running fine - I think I'll wait until I see my Dad's laptop first which will be in a few weeks. Has anyone had any experience of this BIOS update or other comments on this?Thanks. &nb...

I'm still wondering about this... I've just updated the Lenovo Companion after seeing it mentioned in another thread. It looks like this s/w is supposed to scan the PC and recommend Lenovo updates - critical and nice to have ones. Initially the Companion was showing a critical update for Lenovo SHAREit and a recommended one for my BIOS. It says I'm currently on BDCN28WW and offered something like v61 and not the 63 I mentioned in my first post? After letting it update SHAREit and re-scanning the BIOS update is no longer being offered and still shows me on v28 ??? I'm not sure I trust this 'Companion' app!My laptop seems to be running fine so I don't want to break it updating the BIOS if it's not required. For all I know my Dad's broken one may be broken because it upgraded?! Does anyone else use/trust the Companion app?And has anyone else seen it change it's mind on recommended BIOS updates?Thanks.

My son attempted to upgrade it from Win8 to 10 about a year ago. Something went wrong I guess and he threw it in a drawer and left it. Now we are trying to get it going. If you turn it on, it starts up, fan comes on, keyboards lights up, etc. Screen illuminates but just stays black. No splash screen, nothing.  I have tried an external monitor and nothing there either. Just "no input". I can toggle Fn and F2 and the screen will turn off and on.  I search around and found someone saying that pulling the battery and AC, hold power button for 30 seconds, and reinstall power and fire it up and it may work. It didn't. Nothing....same thing. Button on the side will restart it but comes up the same.  Any ideas to get it to boot? At least into the bios so that I can get Windows reinstalled?

Since I'm having some issues with a double boot linux system, I'd need to run the live USB from the bios options.The problem is that when I'm trying to make the Bios show up at startup I press the keys fn+f2 (as I already did in the past), I hear the beeping sound, but the bios interface doesn't show up at all.Since grub is installed and I can access Windows, I tried to advance reboot into the bios from there.Here the situation is even weirder as I see the bios interface but when I move to the security tab, the bios freezes and I can't select anything else. This error is repeateble.I would like to know if this is a know issue, and I would be thankful if I could get any assistance to solve it. In  particular is it possible to somehow restore the bios to its original values (in case it's corrupted) or run some checks either from Windows or grub2?

Hi, I have an IdeaPad 510S. Is it possible to have a dual monitor setup with this laptop (i.e. connected to two additional monitors)? The laptop seems to only have one HDMI port, hence I'm wondering.

Hi, recently my wifes Lenovo Z585(AMD APU and GPU) got the superb Windows 10 1803 update and rendered it useless. With Rufus I created a bootalbe ISO based on 1803, downloaded with Microsoft Media Creation tool.I managed to  reinstall it(MBR Partition scheme), but under  installation the screen was completely black! Only managed to read the screen with a flashlight.  After boot, Win10 installed KB4284835 update which was supposed to fix the black screen issue. It did not. Just got worse. It won't even boot now. Tried to boot from a USB Windows 7 ISO. Still have the black screen, barely visible only with my phones flash.Now I removed the HDD and USB stick, but it still can't go to BIOS. If I remove AC Power and battery, sometimes after 30-60 minutes it boots and I can enter BIOS, or install Windows, but always goes back to back screen. Is this an issue with the notebook, or Windows? I don't know how to solve it now. BIOS version is 60CN97WW, the newest as far as I know. Can someone help, please?

I ordered an Ideapad 510S with the 256GB SSD, 7th generation i7, and AMD Radeon R7 graphics last month, and I was so excited to get my hands on it. I've never owned a Lenovo product before, but my friends convinced me that Lenovo is a fantastic brand, and so I placed the order for my new daily driver laptop. After a couple of weeks of waiting, it finally arrived! I followed the initial startup instructions (plugging in the power adapter and then booting via the power button), and to my dismay, the laptop did not boot windows first-time startup protocol, but instead directed me to a blue screen that said: "Your PC/Device needs to be repaired". FANTASTIC. Error code: 0xc0000185 was spat out at me. I tried to repair the laptop via the onscreen options but to no avail, and so began my conquest with the Lenovo technical support/sales departments. After describing my issue to someone at technical support over the phone, she was not able to fix my issue, and nor was she able to transfer me to anybody at the sales department to further help me. Instead, I was left to call someone at Lenovo sales, and re-explain to them the entirety of my issue. They simply informed me that I can return the laptop for a refund, or have a replacement PC sent to me. I couldn't believe it. I don't understand how a company as large as Lenovo, who is supposed to be focused on providing excellent customer service, can allow a completely defunct unit to arrive in my hands and then make me the one who has to ...

1: When the screen shows a dark picture, then when I immediately switch back to a mostly white picture, it's far duller, and gradually (over the course of about 10 seconds), the white screen lightens more and more. I presume this is a battery saving feature. Can I disable it somehow? 2: Fan issues. Although the fan is quiet, I'd rather it be quieter still (or even silent). From previous experience, I know Lenovo tends to (heavily) err on the side of caution, but I'd rather be able to control the fan speeds more directly. Can I somehow half the fan speed or by some other arbitray amount? I'll keep an eye on temperatures, and I know all the risks.
