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.)

My Ideacentre has been working fine since I bought it a couple of months ago. Last night it went to sleep and this morning when I tried to wake it up, it wouldn't start up. When I touch the keyboard, or press the power button, the LEDs at the front of the box flash and the fans start spinning, and then everything dies. It looks like there's power for about half a second after which there's nothing. Does anyone have any suggestions on what might be wrong?

Hello,  Having an issue with my Y700 ideapad that just popped up yesterday. Whenever I boot my computer up and get to the desktop there will be an audible beep followed by the screen starting to flash black. Every second or so it alternates between black and the desktop preventing anything from being done. Not sure where to start with troubleshooting it but I do have a warranty still on it since this issue only popped up about 6 months into owning it. Any help is much appreciated since I'd like to be able to use my computer again.

if someone else asked that already i am sorry i couldn't find it.i have a Y700-15ISK 80NV and i am just curious about how much ram can i put in it.in almost every site i see 16gb is the max but that doesn't seem right. the cpu supports up to 64 gb so thats not problem.and ddr4 can be found 16gb per stick so on most models that has 2 slots. it means 32gb.which leads me to the strangest thing. by specs of all y700 (and mine) it has only 2 slots of ram.but according to the task manager and cpu z (program) i have 4 slots! which means 64gb of ram!!what is going on??   

A:lenovo y700 max ram

Which Y700 is this?
 
 
Pretty much it looks like that all Y700 models support Upto 16GB RAM.
http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/y700-series/y700-15-inch/
 
The hardware maintenance manual also says about 8GB per slot and there are only 2 slots (Pg 78) -
https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_y700-15_17isk_15acz_touch-15isk_hmm_201510....
 
Anyways, for gaming you dont need more than 8gb of RAM, atleast not yet. I am playing Witcher 3 on Ultra settings with ONLY 8gb of RAM.

Had this laptop for about a year now and it has worked wonderfully. But the past few weeks it has randomly stopped charging for about a second or 2 then it starts charging again. Except just now, it stopped charging altogether. There are a few times here and there where it would charge for a fraction of a second. Think the problem is the laptop itself or the charger?

A:Lenovo y700 not charging

There is actually no real way to determine whether it's the charger or the laptop right off the bat, we can only speculate and make assumptions that are MOST LIKELY true.BUY A NEW CHARGER. If your laptop does charge, most likely it's your charger. EDIT: Also, let me mention that if your charger will charge for a second then stop, and it keeps doing that or you keep plugging it in and out while it's doing that, you can very quickly damage your battery. It happened to me.

Hello, 
 
I'm hoping this is the right section for my problems,
Moderator comment: Moved it for you.
 
I decided to invest in a new laptop as my other one had fallen on the ground, and lately for the past two month's all I've been having with it was troubles. Ther first problem I had was with the external microphone I used (Blue Yeti) It wouldn't detect or something and eventually made my speakers and microphone stop working all together. With no clue on how to fix it I ended up factory resetting my product. Everything's been fine with this problem, but if you have a fix to it if it arrises again then that'd be helpful.
 
Just yesterday I had a problem with my laptop where I was using it and the screen suddenly went black, I restarted it and the LENOVO loading screen came up only to have it stuck on the screen with a loading symbol and my curser. I contacted a live agent who told me to factory reset my laptop which brings me onto what happens when I do that below;
 
I have also had a problem where It would update from windows 8.1 to windows 10 & "Windows Explorer" would continue to crash and refresh every second thus making the laptop un-useable in this state unless I open a program through "Task Manager". Due to this problem I had to factory reset my laptop about five times as I cannot resolve it and it continues to arrise if I set a background to my laptop - I have tried everything, from updating drivers to much more and have yet to find a fix t...

However my questions is, can I install an SSD to my laptop which has no SSD to begin with. Also, if there is a way I can, can you please suggest a good model of SSD? Thank you guys for your attention.

Hi all,  I'm planning on upgrading the RAM in my Y700-15ISK system, I recently installed a 1tb SSHD and this is my next step. My only issue is that I'm not sure on what RAM is applicable, using sites such as Kingston's system scanner and also Crucial's doesn't show my system specs accurately and therefore I don't feel all too confident about their results. After looking into is seems I need DDR4 SO-DDIM which is running at 1.2v and 2133MHz. I currently have (1x4GB) installed and I am planning on upgrading to a 16GB kit (2x8GB). After looking about I came to find this: http://www.ebuyer.com/728407-corsair-16gb-2x8gb-ddr4-sodimm-2133mhz-c15-memory-kit-cmso16gx4m2a2133c...Does anyone have any opinions? Thanks.

Hi!I've purchased my Lenovo Y700 a month ago. But ever since, laptop keeps crashing. Usually it was twice a day. But today since 10 AM (2PM here as I am writing) it have crashed 3 times already.I talked to the shop owner where I've bought the laptop. He have 'tested' it for 2 days and said everything is alright.But after i got it back, it still kept crashing. When i say crashing I mean laptop freezes, artifacts appear on the screen and weird noises get out of the speakers.Since i got laptop back from the shop I've started taking pictures of screen when it freezes and taking videos of it. Here is the link to my folder with photos and videos i've taken.link to the folder I have no idea how to reproduce those crashes.They appear as random. Not necessarily while gaming. It often happens when I am just browsing internet, listening to music, programming, watching videos on youtube. After some research i got to the conclusion that my processor might be defective. After turning off my dedicated GPU (gtx 960m) in BIOS, I've tried to turn CS:GO on integrated graphics (intel graphics hd 530) and it crashed like after 3 minutes. Please. I need some help. I use this laptop for work and those crashes are both dangerous and irritating for me. Specs of laptop:i7 6700HQGTX 960madditional SSD: SAMSUNG MZVPV256 256GBadditional RAM: 16GB (2X 8GB 2133mhz GOODRAM)

Hi everyone! I'm having a few problems which seem serious to me. My laptop (Lenovo Y700 15-ACZ) sometimes restarts randomly without any warning, usually when Youtube, Adobe Reader and Microsoft Word are open, at least that is what I've observed. I'm running Windows 8.1 64 bit. I did some tests through the Lenovo Solution Center, all tests came back OK, except the following: -the Memory test gets stuck on the first element, the "Quick random pattern test"-the Graphics test gets stuck on the first one as well, the "Video memory" part The bar wouldn't fill, but I can hear the laptop working and it slowly starts to heat up. Another, miscellaneous problem is an "Unknown device" in the Device Manager, "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)", "on Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Embedded Controller". What could be the problem? Could it be a faulty RAM?

Hi, so I recently got a Lenovo Y700. I haven't had a computer in a while and since I'm going to attend college soon but also enjoy gaming I decided to get this laptop, as it's mobile and seems to be quite powerful.

Initially when I got the laptop, it was having a ton of problems, couldn't connect to the internet, didn't want to install or save certain things, and was a real mess. So I returned it and got a replacement. The replacement has been working much better, but I'm still having some issues with it, mostly with gaming. I've had the new one for about a week or so.

I'm aware games will be crashing more often on a computer than a console, but the frequency just seems unusual to me. I'm having a particularly weird crash when I'm playing skyrim. Instead of completely crashing, the game will minimize every 10 or 15 minutes. I can easily just reopen it, but it seems to become more and more frequent. The most irritating part of this is that after reopening it for the second or third time, the desktop cursor will also appear in game giving me 2 cursors. I looked this up and couldn't really find a solution to it, and it seemed to be exclusive to skyrim, but it's just another nuisance. It seems like the problem may be when an app attempts to launch in the background but I haven't noticed any when this happens for me. Also, just today skyrim has started freezing. Vanilla, my computer opened skyrim on ultra, and was getting pretty good (at least 30 fps? don't have fraps insta... Read more

I'm hoping someone can guide me as to which is the correct m.2 SSD for this laptop, as Lenovo's website is a little confusing. They talk about a B end socket and an M end socket which I understand. I'm wondering if a Samsung Evo 850 m.2 which appear to have both B & M slots can be used for either socket application by simply flipping the drive over?? I have heard that the EVO 850 can be used as a boot device, but the EVO 950 cannot. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Lenovo 80NV005CUS Y700 15.6 - m.2 SSD

Wikipedia actually gives a decent explanation of this form factor. The Samsung supports B+M keys, giving you the option to use it in the manner outlined by Wikipedia. However, it really should be inserted one way; there's no such way to flip it over in the manner you outlined. In fact, if you did something like that, there's a possibility you could damage the drive.

So I have a Lenovo Y700 15ISK. I got the model with the 1 TB harddrive and no SSD. I decided to install my own 500 gig M.2 SSD, specifically this. My problem is that my computer doesn't seem to recognize it. I'm not sure if I'm missing something here, or if I maybe got a defective SSD. But I'm not seeing anything other than the HDD in disk management or in device manager. I thought it was probably because it just wasn't seated properly, but I've tried 3 or 4 times now and I'm pretty sure it's placed in there the way it's supposed to be. So I'm not really sure what to do now. I think it's worth mentioning that I got the SSD refurbished so it could be that, but I didn't wanna jump the gun before making sure that it's not me messing up here.  Thank you guys in advance!

Hi, I recently purchased this laptop and it was working fine for the few days. Now, after about 5 minutes into a game, the screen freezes and I am unable to do anything leaving me to turn off the power manually (WoW, CSGO, LoL all share this trait). I have run tests on how hot the computer is getting and it starts off around 60 and raises to 71-75 before staying at that level for about 3 minutes then freezing. I have factory reset this laptop in hopes there was a software option but the problem persists. For a gaming laptop, this seems like a problem that should never exist and I am left to believe that this may be a factory defect and return it. Any thoughts?
