Lenovo Yoga 720 YOGA 720-15IKB Fans always on.

Q: Lenovo Yoga 720 YOGA 720-15IKB Fans always on.

The fans of my Yoga 720 are always running. When it shuts down, the fans go on max until it's done shutting down, then when it boots up, the fans go on max again. It calms down for the few seconds it takes me to open up Google Chrome. Then it goes on max again. It doesn't matter whether or not I'm running an intensive program or literally just having 1 tab open in Chome, the fans are always on. I obviously expect it to be running at max speed when I'm playing games but not when there's 1 tab open in Google Chrome. Is anyone else having this issue? If so, how was it solved? I tried searching around and still didn't find a definitive answer so I really appreciated all the feedback that everyone has to give.

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.)

Hi there,  My very new Lenovo Yoga 710 (15" IKB) laptop/two-in-one has been fantastic so far except in one regard. Whenever I play a game, the fan gets quite loud and the temperature shoots up. I'm not one hundred percent sure if this happened in the first few days but I have come to notice it far more recently. When playing a pretty standard game, such as World of Warcraft, the temp will shoot up to somewhere around 65 degrees celsius (sometimes up to 70) with the bottom getting quite hot, and the fans will become quite loud. Even a very low requirement game, like FIFA 15 (which is obviously 2 years old now), can cause the temp to reach about 60 degrees and the fans to get loud, and when dowloading a driver from Nvidia I noticed that the temperature had again risen, this time to 52 degrees with the fans spinning loudly again. I had earlier had a display issue that I fixed by downloading diplay drivers from Lenovo's website. I'm not sure if there's any driver I could download to rectify this issue (I already updated BIOS from the download on Lenovo's website)?

Sorry fo language mistakes. Yesterday I buy Lenovo yoga 720 720-15ikb wth gtx 1050 model. I update everything (Windows 10 home update, lenovo drivers (lenovo vantage and additionally from pcsupport.lenovo.com)). When i try to draw with my "lenovo active pen 2" pen works unstable. Sometimes dont work, sometimes work and sometimes work even pen dont touch screen !!! (i can write in distance 10 mm  above the screen without touching it) Working or not depends on pen "location/angle" to the screen.   I don't know what causes this behavior .... bad battery, domaged nib, damaged screen, damaged pen, additional drivers are required. Has anyone encountered such a problem ?

Hello, Does anybody tried to charge the Device by USB-PD? Technically it should be possible with a >90W Charger, but I read different Statements. Some say, it's only charging, if the device is off. But that's not the target, it should be possible to work & charge with it.Others say, that only the 13" Yoga can be charged, the 15" (4k Display btw.) seems to need too much energy and doesn't push it to the battery But 90W, as the original dedicated non-usb-Power-Charger, is 90W, so there seems to be negotiating-issues. But as I said: Too many different statements. My Dream-Configuration would look something like this:- 1 USB-C-Charger like Dell TDK33 (4,[email protected])- 1 USB-C-Hub (primarly for LAN & Display), e.g. Andobil 9-in-1. It's too expensive to buy & try. Especially if there are Negotiating-Issues, you have to try different Chargers until you find a working one or to come to the conclusion, that its impossible. TL;DR: Can I Charge the 730-15ikb (4k) over USB-C while working? Which Charger is known to work? Thanks

Let me start by saying that I am posting this for my mother-in-law; the Lenovo Yoga 710-15IKB is hers and I am trying to help her resolve this problem. She purchased the laptop in June of 2017. It started in mid-November 2019 when she said her desktop icons kept disappearing. When I looked at it, it seemed as if whenever you double-clicked a desktop icon, it would proceed to open that app or document, but it was acting as if you also pressed the Delete key at the same time, and the icon would disappear as it opened. I changed the Recycle Bin settings so that it would ask you to confirm before moving items into the Recycle Bin. Afterwards, it acted the same way -- as you double-clicked an icon, it would open it, but also try to delete it, but now it gives you the confirmation dialog box to ask "Are you sure you want to move this item to the Recycle Bin?" It does the same thing not just from the Desktop, but if you open a document located in a folder anywhere on the hard drive. As I delved into it further, there are several other wonky things happening that seem to be related to the keyboard:When the laptop boots up, as soon as the password or PIN screen appears, it acts like you are holding the number 6 key down, and it repeatedly types "6" in the password or PIN box. You have to press another key to get it to stop, and you have to be quick about it, otherwise it keeps trying to enter a string of 6's as the password or PIN, and you eventually get locked out your acco...

Hi, I just bought this laptop 2 days ago, and i really am impressed with how it performs. The only problem i've incountered earlier this morning is that some of the keys in the keyboard didn't work (the P,Z,C keys). I left it on sleep the night before.  After i restarted and remove my mouse from the laptop, it suddenly works again. My question is, is this showing some sign of malfunctioning keyboard? I don't want to always have to restart my laptop and doing all the steps above. Any advice?

Currently I'm playing music on Google Play music which plays fine until I'm about to click on another page or go to the home of google play for example and it stutters for a few seconds.Also not sure if this is related, when I use my bluetooth speaker, audio stutters really bad, worse than when using internal speakers. Possibly two different problems but for now I really only care about the internal speakers stuttering as I rarely use my bluetooth speakers on my pc. Any hardware can be specified.

I bought a Lenovo Yoga 720 - 15IKB two weeks ago. The laptop works fine except for one important detail: it has never recognized the AC adapter as being plugged in. Basically when the PC is on, even if plugged in, it will drain down to 5% and turn itself off. But when it is off and plugged in, it charges up to 100% battery without a problem. How can I get my laptop to charge while plugged in? As it charges without issue when turned off, I want to think it is more of an issue with drivers or BIOS than the AC adapter and power connection.  All Windows updates and Lenovo System Updates have been installed, except for one: BIOS Update - 10 [64]When I install and then run this update, I get this blue screen of death Windows Error DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Battery drivers in the Device Manager several times. I restored battery settings to default, tweaked them, and set them back to default with no avail. Can anyone help or make any suggestions??? Thank you very much!

Hello, A few days ago I bought lenovo yoga 730-15IKB, practically since the first charging I had a problem with a quick battery discharging -  yoga lasts only for 3-4 hours. I installed  latest drivers that I could find on the Internet - nothing changed.Yesterday I checked the battery tab in the program HWiNFO64 - it shows that the battery consumption level is 27%! and the battery only charges up to 37490 mWh. I tried to find instructions on how to perform a battery reset on the Internet - however in the lenovo vantage program I miss the option Battery gauge reset. I have uninstalled the lenovo vantage from the Microsoft store and tried to install several versions from the offline files - there is no battery gauge option, only a power saving mode, fast charging, active USB connections, the lenovo vantage toolbar and that's all! Has anyone had similar problems?

You can find out what you have installed by going to the properties dialog for your C: drive (Windows+E > This PC > Right click on the C: drive and choose Properties, then the Hardware tab). You can then use that information to find and compare the specs of what you have vs the 970.

I thought nothing of it and restarted my computer and nothing happened after that. So I thought I was free to enjoy my good looking device. But now after my third usage I closed my laptop and went out to run some errands I came back an hour later or so and tried to open my computer and keep on using it but to my surprise the screen stayed black. Completely black, no flickering or anything. So i tried to reboot it by holding the start button down for 10s giving the computer a minute or so to rest then turned it back on. Same thing happens Keyboard lights up for a second or two then the fans just keep running and the screen stays completely black. This is extremely frustrating since this is a brand new computer and I desperately need it for studying and work. Screen black, computer starts and runs I can hear the fans keyboard lights up at first but screen is completely black. I would appreciate a quick response Lenovo, I had so high hopes for my new laptop. Best regards, Elisabet.

Looking for some help troubleshooting my Yoga 2 Pro 13-inch. Laptop has been amazing for years, we mostly use it to watch movies on a projector. Recently it began shutting off without any warning or anything. I start it back up and it shuts off randomly again... I then downloaded an app to check CPU temps and they were getting high quickly, up to 90c, which I knew was not right.What I tried: I took the bottom off and really cleaned the dust from the fan and vent areas. It wasn't too bad, but that didn't work. I then fired it up and noticed the fans were not moving at all... I just bought a new fans and heat sink unit on Amazon (about 50 bucks) and installed that. Thought this would fix it, but the new fans are not spinning at all, and again the temps go high... It is odd, because time to time I hear a high pitch sound from the one fan, and it wiggles a little as if it wants to spin, but it never does. Then this happens with the other fan.Not sure what else to try, and even though years old, this laptop is still really great. Would love to fix it. Thoughts?

It has come to my attention that the graphics drivers on my lenovo yoga 720 are out of date. A bit of background info, I have an Intel HD Graphics 630 graphics card, with windows 10 x64. The lenovo website states that the graphics drivers you are supposed to use on your computer are supposed to be downloaded from the manufacturer that made your computer's graphics card. Since I have an intel graphics card, I attempted to download the most recent graphics driver avaiable on the intel website, the Widnows 10 DCH drivers. The problem is that I always recieve this error message after trying to install it: "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer." Considering my computer is telling me I need to recieve the driver from Lenovo, and the Lenovo website is telling me I need to get the driver from Intel, I am not exactly sure how I am supposed to resolve this problem. It is worth nothing that intel does not provide the .zip file for the graphics driver, which means the method of manually uploading the drivers does not work anymore. Can anyone help me figure out how to bypass this error message/get the driver from lenovo themselves?

I cycled through probably all subjects releated and tried possible solutions but couldn't get anywhere. I had the following USB-C to HDMI Adapter : https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories-and-monitors/cables-and-adapters/adapters/CABLE-BO-USB-C-to...... delivered with product. A HDMI to VGA (With Audio (USB to Audio Jack)) Adapter : (Tested and works fine on another PC)A Standart HDMI to VGA Adapter : (Tested and works fine on another PC) An Acer monitor : https://www.acer.com/ac/en/NZ/content/model/UM.WW3SA.001 (1920 x 1080) Previously tried adding "USB-C to HDMI" and "HDMI to VGA" adapters end to end, managed to extend my old PCs display.  Lenovo device detects the monitor for a couple of seconds, refreshes the screen and losts connection( can't detect anymore ). detects and undetects, and so on. This process cycles/loops through over and over again. And "No Signal" message displays at the monitor whole time. I updated my Intel Drivers using following Link : https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27988/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-10?product=122139... rebooted.

(The mouse curser is painfully slow, even on the hightest pointer speed setting).However, I can?t seem to find any place to change these settings?I have tried the following: Navigating the touchpad settings via taskbar, looking at each tab (including the ELAN tab). There is no place to make touchpad gesture changes.Going into Windows 10 control panel settings for the touchpad. The only adjustment I can make is ?touchpad sensitivity?.Updating the ELAN driver in Windows 10 via ELAN tab > properties. This does nothing.Downloading and installing various ELAN/Synaptics touchpad drivers from Lenovo.com, none of them activating any ?gesture? settings that I can find. This one specifically did not even work? http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds118370 My questions: Does the Yoga 710-15IKB even support touchpad gestures?Are there any owners with this model who have success with activating gestures? Thanks for your...
