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.

Hi everyone!I've had a Lenovo G710 laptop for a long time and have had no issues with it. But today when I for the second time booted it to edit a video for a good friend of mine the laptop won't start. The Lenovo logo shows up, but after that nothing happens. When I hold down the power button and reboot it "the hard way" It says something along the lines of "automatic repair in progress". After the laptop has been on that screen for a while it goes over to a blue page where I can choose to either restart the laptop (which just sets me back to square one, the screen just showing the Lenovo logo) or I can choose to go to advanced alternatives. From there I can choose either to: "Continue and go to windows 10", "Use a USB-stick, internet or DVD recovery disk to boot", "go to (even more) advanced settings" or simply turn the laptop off. the first and last two of these has been tried without success. What do I do? There is really isn't an option for me to reset it. Cause I have programs and several projects that aren't backed up.

Also, when I on Windows 10 and need to restart, to apply the updates, I have to repeat the same operation, move the lid, to able the computer to start... This thing is making me crazy!!!

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.

Hi everyone,Bought Lenovo y700 ideapad laptop last week, and since then im having problems with Wi-Fi, tried many offered solutions on the internet like updating my drivers, reinstalling them, the power settings options etc.. some of them worked just for few hours and then the problem returned.I think it's a problem with the driver because everytime the problem occurs my intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 has that exclamation mark and it issues the Error 10 and when troubleshooting by right clicking the Wi-Fi icon it says "The intel(R) dual band wireless AC 3165 adapter is experiencing driver or hardware related problems".and sometimes my Wi-Fi options in settings disappears..I'm really out of ideas looking hours for solutions but can't find any that completely solves the problem.I would really appreciate if someone has a solution for me.(sorry for my english).Thanks for the support, Roee.

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

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!

I asked this question on a solved thread, so I wasn't sure if it would ever get answered. Anyway, I bought a Lenovo Y700(model 80NW000PUS), but the 1TB WD blue slim 5400rpm didn't sound too sexy for me. I'm a power user(gaming, AutoCAD, misc.media) so I ordered a 1TB WD Black 7200rpm(It wasn't slim, but it still fit-maybe that was the problem?) and the machine didn't read it at all (the disk manager, nor the BIOS would pick it up), but worked when I switched back to the WD Blue that came with it. I figured the HDD was DOA, so I called Lenovo just to be sure and they told me that the laptop didn't support HDD beyond 1TB 5400rpm. They suggested if I wanted more performance, I could go with an SSHD so long it was still 5400rpm, which I don't believe is worth the trouble. So, I want to know my options, because I can't imagine why a GAMING laptop would not support 7200rpm. I already have an 128GB SSD in the M.2 slot that I boot from. So, basically should I just suck it up and deal with the HDD that it shipped with, or has someone had success with a 7200rpm HDD. If so, is the performance worth the upgrade? Or is an SSHD at 5400rpm worth it? I'm trying to stay at 1TB, so SSDs are out(expensive! Plus, the laptop doesn't support it). Thanks!

Trying to install mantioned above HDD into laptop I found that for SSD versions Lenovo does not include required HDD cable. I spent hours searching amazon and ebay - but nothing, than i contacted Lenovo support and they told that lenovo is not provideng such a spare part, and advice me not to open up laptop t keep warranty. Do somone have a solution for such an issue? Dear Lenovo team, is such a thing is a normal course of Lenovo business?I think a lot of people around the world will purchase SDD versions to be able to use their HDD with tonnes of informations instead oferred by Lenovo WD slim (which also is not best bay in terms of quality and performance), please advise!

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. Recently I have bought SSD M.2 disk (so far using only HDD). I installed win 7 64bit on it, updated BIOS from v52 to v53 (using .exe from Y700 support page). That's where the problem starts.As soon as the BIOS logo shows up, the fan starts to run quite loud. If I enter BIOS settings, it just keeps going and won't stop, which wasn't happening on previous BIOS version. I even tried installing previous version v35, then go back again to 53. Also restoring default settngs. Nothing worked.If I start system normally, after loading everything and 1-2 minutes of waiting fan goes queit, as it should be. But when I start e.g. browsing internet fan goes loud again. I checked temperatures - cpu, gpu and disks are all below 40 C degree, CPU usage is also low (10-15%), so I can't find a reason fans would be so loud.I also have installed (reinstalled too) Lenovo Energy Management. What I have noticed, is that when fan is running, if I open LEM, and then close it, fan stops for a second the very same moment I close it, and then start running again.Also, changing active/passive cooling CPU doesn't have any effect. To sum up:- fan is running non-stop in BIOS ( I don't think it's normal)- if I don't do anything, fan is quiet, but doing even simple thing like internet browsing makes it run loud. I have read many topics about fan problems but nothing is working for me so far.  Edit:Also, from what I have read, there is no possibility to manually control fan/set temperature t...
