Lenovo Flex 3 1570 80JM Keyboard issue.

Question: Lenovo Flex 3 1570 80JM Keyboard issue.

Keyboard is turning on and off when in normal laptop mode. the switching on and off is as though laptop is switching to tablet mode/ being turned. I think it may be loose keyboard wires. This started recently and can't relate to any software change or incident to system. Keyboard works fine when raising the laptop with a thumb while on table or plain surface.See the video I uploaded of the issue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbdehSyYGpg

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Flex 3 1570 80JM Keyboard issue.

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 Flex 3-1570 (80JM) is throttling the CPU to between 400-490MHz when connected to the charger. I have already checked my power profiles and advanced settings and it is occuring in both Linux and Windows 10. I applied the latest BIOS update as well, as suggested for other lenovo laptops with this issue. Looking for advice, or a BIOS update from Lenovo to address this. I have verified with a meter that the charger is providing a steady 20V with current capability up to 4.5A @ 20V.

?I bought a laptop, Lenovo flex -1570 from US through amazon.com, for my father's birthday present. Thanks for ruining it in a way that I could have never imagined. In just 2 days of laptop usage, the mouse pad has come out. The amazing service center in India (ticket no. HT014716010) said that the glue that held mousepad to the laptop "WASN'T STICKY ENOUGH" and added that they do not support this laptop as its "international warranty" is limited to US and China and I need to take it to your US service center to fix it. $619 laptop, 2 days, and it is nothing more than a junk box to me. As a birthday present I have gifted my father nothing more than added tension and thanks to you guys for making that happen. Attaching a pic for your reference. ?

I've run into a quagmire and need some help.

I purchased a Lenovo Flex3-1570 and a Crucial MX200 250GB SSD to upgrade to. I've had nothing but fits trying to get this SSD running.

1. The SSD is recognized in the bios
2. The SSD is not seen by windows 10 installer (fresh install)
3. Can't clone drive due to 512/4000 sector size mismatch. (tried macrium, acronis, minitool partition wizard)

I've tried the following steps to try to resolve the issue.

1. Boot from legacy instead of UEFI
2. initialized SSD on another PC
3. ran diskpart "clean" command on SSD
4. Installed IRST SATA driver during windows installation

In trying to resolve this issue i've decided all "support" departments should be renamed "not my problem" departments......seriously a joke.

The only thing i can think of is that it is some sort of SSD DEVSLP (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DevSlp) issue and the SSD is being put to sleep after the bios loads and before windows setup loads, but I can't get anyone at Lenovo to confirm this is the problem.

I've run across multiple posts online about similar issues but all were resolved by initializing the drive or fixing a corrupted MBR with the diskpart "clean" command.

Hoping someone here can maybe help shed some light on the issue and help to resolve it, even if it means getting a different model SSD that will work with this laptop.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Welcome to TenForums, mk12delta.

Have you tried completely imaging the old disk and restoring the image to the SSD? A very different thing from cloning.

I opened my one month old Lenovo Flex 5-1570 to see what is going on inside because what I read / see is confusing and have these questions (I?m aware that my actions may void the warranty): The maintenance manual say to first unplug the battery plug and then remove the battery but I can?t unplug it. The only place to pull the plug out is the wires and I don?t want to apply too much pressure doing so. I also tried to pry out the plug with no success. Perhaps the plug is locked and I wonder if on the attached picture the 2 small holes shown on the top of the plugs socket are the locks and maybe I should put something to press into these holes to release the plug. Anyone knows if the battery plug is locked? For the benefit of other users, as per attached picture (noticed I'm only allowed to post 1 picture only) the HDD includes the bracket required to install the HDD and there is no cable required. Looks like the new HDD just plugs in. Also the manual says to remove 2 screws to remove the HDD but there are 3 screws to remove.

I need help regarding the pink screen problem I am experiencing recently on my laptop. I see pink in place of white, green in place of black. There is screen image on the screen even after it has beenclosed or minimized- Ghost effect.(Not sure about terminology).External monitor works fine with HDMI.2 years old laptop. No more warranty. I have opened my laptop, unplugged the lcd screen and lcd cable and replugged everything back together hoping it was a lcd inverter or backlight problem. But nothing changed. The cable looked fine without any damage, and the screen looked fine from the inside. Please suggest if is a problem is with lcd cable or lcd digitzer or  something I do not know. I don't see the point of taking the laptop to repair and getting charged 250-300$ where as I can get a decent new laptop for 350-450$. I would rather buy the necessary part and replace it myself.screen faultyIll be glad if you could provide service. Thank you for your time.

Have noticed this problem with a few new lenovos now, when updated to windows 10 no matter what REALTEK driver you use wether it be from windows update, from realtek or from lenovo's site... the cursor will stutter when moving it and performance is degraded.  IF you uninstall the realtek driver and leave audio as "high definition audio device" this problem disappears.   It appears the issue stems from the dolby component that automatically is installed when installing the driver, even removing the dolby software does not remove it from the realtek control panel.  How can you COMPLETELY get rid of the dolby enhancements thus fixing the problem or is there another solution in the works?  

Answer:Flex 3 - 1570, Windows 10 Realtek/Dolby issue.

I am also experiencing stuttering from all input devices, keyboard, touchpad, mouse, and touchscreen. My Flex3-1570 is only 10 days old.  I didn't notice if the stuttering occured out of the box, before I updated all the drivers. I have tried all kinds of suggestions, including removing all antivirus, setting all power settings to 100%.  I do notice a corelation between having the A/C apapter plugged in or not.  If the A/C is plugged in, the stuttering can be stopped by unplugging the A/C adapter.  However, after some use with the A/C unplugged, the stuttering resumes.  The stuttering is not always there, I would say about 90% of the time.  It makes it almost impossible to use the touchscreen to scroll down a web page, because after the stutter is over, the finger swipe is detected as a fast swipe and the page scrolls all the way to the end.  It's very annoying.  I posted a Youtube video of this stuttering at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72garn6gFpI Also, it's almost impossible to use the touchpad with any accuracy with this stuttering, because the curser stalls, then jumps across the screen quickly when moving the cursor.  Anybody else experiencing this? -----Lenovo Flex3-1570 LaptopModel: 80JM002MUSProcessor 5th Generation Intel Core i7-5500U Processor (2.40GHz 1600MHz 4MB)Operating System Windows 10 Home 64Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 940M 2GBMemory 8.0GB PC3-12800 DDR3L 1600 MHz &nb...

Got this notebook two days ago and tried to use the tablet mode. I realized that the touch screen wasn't working and went to check the device manager only to find out that the HID compliant touch screen driver is missing. While checking, I noticed that Wacom device driver also could not start as well (Code 10). Does anyone have a clue as to what is going on? I really would like to use the tablet mode of this laptop instead of having to return it due to the touch screen not working.

I have a LeNovo Flex 3 1480 [80R3] for about a year with zero problems. The only modded thing is a Sandisk 480gb SSD drive, with a Windows 10 installation from scratch, installed in the very first day I bought this machine. I was running Windows 10 version 1607 normally, and really enjoying this machine, but since last week when I was booting up, the machine freezed at bootscreen (the one with the lenovo logo) and then restarted showing the message "Preparing Automatic Repair" that took almost a whole day to pass. The repair never happened and I had to use the option to reset windows maintaining my personal files. After this everytime I boot up, windows 10 take up to 10 minutes to boot, and my keyboard and touchpad won't work, leaving me with only the touchscreen option. I've been through a lot of different solutions attempts:- Upgraded BIOS to the latest version (Lenovo colored logo at bootscreen)- Uninstalled KB and Touchpad drivers manually and reinstalled with Lenovo provided drivers, and also repeated the procedure with Windows Update drivers.- Disabled the fast startup option- Done the 15s procedure with the power button- Deattached the battery plug for some minutes and reattached- Checked (unplug and replug) both KB and Touchpad flatwires- Reinstalled the latest Windows 10 version 1703 from scratch None of the solution mentioned above worked for me. KB works perfectly in BIOS, and even when booting up I can change de backlight settings usi...

Actually, according to Disk Management they're all empty except for the C: partition of course. So it seems as though the system didn't even ship with the recovery image backed up. Is it safe to delete these partitions(particularly the LENOVO partition)?

Bought my Flex 5 at Costco. There are no drivers for the touchpad which eliminate being able to scroll with one finger on the right side of the touchpad like most of us are used to. You can scroll with two fingers however.Called Lenovo who couldn't help. They said I would have to wait until drivers are released from them or Microsoft. Love the Laptop except for this issue.Wondering if anyone else has the same issue?

Answer:Flex 5 - 1570 Cannot scroll with one finger !

Hello Jmrgn59Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.I do not have this unit myself so I couldn`t confirm.
 
But from the sounds of things, this model does not support the convential scrolling on the right side, instead it will sport the multitouch / multigesture feature, this may be the reason for this, hopefully someone will be able to confirm this with their unit.

I recently bought my flex 5 and wanted to install a new SSD, Samsung 960 EVO, into the computer. I have disconnected the old HDD so the sdd is the only drive in the computer.  The SSD does show up in the bios as the only hard drive in the system, but it is not letting me boot from it.  In the bios, if i change the sata control to achi and boot mode to legacy I can get windows to install onto the drive, but when windows needs to reset to finish install the computer boots back to usb drive. In the bios the ssd is listed as one of the boot options and when you try to boot to it the computer says that there is no bootable drive in the computer.  I have also tried using the factory bios setting, with the sata controller set to intel rst and boot to uefi. In the windows installer, the SSD does not show up unless I install the intel rst drivers. I am them able to install windows on the drive. Upon restarting the computer boots back to the usb and the SSD is not visible in the bios as a boot device. I have also tried with secure boot enabled and disabled but that didn't change the results.  Any help will be appreciated. I have been trying to get this for the past couple of days now and it is starting to get annoying.

I'm trying to upgrade the RAM on my laptop but the base cover is preventing me from actually changing because it won't budge in some places.  I've been following its hardware maintenance manual which can be found on the laptop's product support page here. Page 34 shows how to remove the cover. It makes it looks so easy to remove as if it would just pop out. Nope. In fact, the part where the arrows are showing are the areas that seem immovable.  Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?

In Aug. 2017 I bought a new Flex 5 from Office Depot.It sits on an end table next to my chair and is plugged into ac adapter all day. I use it on my lap for web browsing, and some open office spreadsheets. It does not ever get bounced around. 3 weeks after purchase, I come out in morning to find PC will not accept any input. Power on cycle ends up with PC going into diagnosis and repair, which it fails to do. After that it would never go past the initial screen. Office Depot said bad harddrive and gave another Flex 5. The 2nd Flex 5 ran for 3 weeks, and then it also failed. This time the PC got extremely slow, and after power on cycle, it to tried to recover but failed. However, this time it did go far enough to let me get tothe advanced troubleshooting.

I was able to use xcopy to retrieve all of my data from C drive to a flash drive. The harddrive seemed to work fine, but it failed trying to do a RESET with save data, and a full RESET. It seemed to be due to the X: errors. Once again Office Depot decided to give me a new Flex 5. My current Flex 5 has been running fine since early November, until it started running slower on Monday night, and Tuesday morning it quit.

My unit as per label is: Ideapad Flex-5-1570, Model 80XB. On the left side I only have one button which is the power button and not the Novo button as the enclosed instructions state (it states I should have 2 buttons). Perhaps the Novo button is for another model?

I recently purchased the Flex 5, and thought it would be fun to get an active pen to go with it, so I picked up a Bamboo Ink pen. All was well for the first evening with the pen, I was able to control things with it, draw with it, everything you would expect from a pen. The next morning started fine, but after about an hour then pen stopped working. Nothing changed on the laptop, the pen simply went from working to not working. Thinking it might be something with the pen, I went ahead and purchased a Lenovo Active Pen. When it arrived and I installed the battery... nothing. No response from the computer at all to the pen. At this point I was worried that there might be some incompatability with some installed software, so I restored Windows, wiping out everything I had setup over the week that I had the computer. During the Windows setup process the pen started working. Hurray! All seemed well, until the next morning, when the pen stopped responding again. I now had two pens that had previously worked, but now were not responding. Exasperated, I restored Windows again, but this time, nothing. That brings us to this morning. I ran a complete re-install of Windows. Once again, nothing. I then found an update BIOS for the computer and installed it. This time on rebooting, both pens began working. For the rest of the day everything seemed fine.  Though you should have realized, I wouldn't be writing this if everything were still fine. Yes, this evening, the la... Read more

Hi everyone, I just received my 1570 Flex 5 and am a little concerned about its overall performance and am considering getting the 1080p version and ditching the 4k version. Most browsers get graphical tearing when scrolling up and down the pages (running the new Firefox) and I have all of the updates installed (i've checked multiple times over the past couple of days). Additionally theres a lot of programs that can't scale properly in the 4k range and get wonky.I've also never experienced this concept of running integrated graphics as primary and the discrete graphics as secondary and seems absurd. I was also pretty upset to see the onboard HDMI can't support 2560x1600 for my 30" monitor.Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? It basically seems that the computer is making too much of an effort to run the 4k monitor and would do better to get the 1080 version.

Answer:Brand New Flex 5 1570 performance issues

its works fine for me.I am wondering how is the brightness of screen for you. does it has pure white or it is more yellowish with white

Purchased this 2-1 recently.  Having a constant battle with getting it to recognize an external display connected to the HDMI port.   Test 1 - When I connect a display it does not recognize it. Test 2 - No displays are discovered when using the feature via right click on dashboard > display > detect. Test 3 - No displays are discovered or projected to when I use the system tray projection>extend display. Test 4 - When I go to the intel graphics settings control panel > display > multiple displays > detect, the display is recognized and the desktop is extended.  When I lock the computer and leave it so for more than 3 minutes, the display settings are lost.  Test 4 has to be repeated to extend displays again.  Is there a resolution for this?

Hello,I bought 2 month ago a Flex 3-1570 laptop.Most of the time I use it with the AC adaptor connected. Only sometimes I need to use the battery.The battery is not detachable and there is no "Battery Conservation Mode" or "Lenovo Power Manager".In these conditions how can I maximize the battery life?What is better:Connect and disconnect the AC adaptor several times a day, to maintain a charge level between 40% and 60%.orKeep the battery always 100% charged ?I had an older Lenovo laptop with a detachable battery and it was a very nice thing. I attached the battery only when I travelled and I think this was the best option to save the battery.Thank you

So last night I came home from dinner and my laptop was on the floor. It's fallen off my bed before so I didn't think much of it until I turned it on and it didn't respond to my touch. After some investigation, everything that has to do with the touch screen is gone. There are no setting on the laptop for the touch screen and there is no way to calibrate the screen. I'd like to try and avoid factory resetting the laptop as I do not have a way to backup my system right now. (My family member who helped me with this in the past lives in another state now) I also noticed that the computer itself didn't pick up the serial number... I'm not sure if this has anything to do with my problem but it was very off that the setting said the serial number was invalid. I called the support line (the only one I could find was the premium line, what happened to the old one???) and they wont do anything unless I sign up for their monthly package or pay $130 (plus tax I'm sure) to let them remote control my laptop. I've had bad experienced with this and so I'm not going to allow them to do this. Is there any way to download a driver or something that would fix this problem? I have full access to my computer (besides what lenovo has blocked me out of automatically) so let me know if there is something I could look at and show you for more information. I've tried to search for this topic and couldn't find anything related to this. Thanks for the help.Kass.

I have been in the market for a new laptop and decided to go with the Lenovo Flex 3 (which I didn't even know existed until a few days ago). It is so new that the only place that actually sells it is Lenovo.com. I got the one with the highest specs on sale. If you look on Flex 3 (15") | Affordable, Thin, & Light Multimode Laptop| Lenovo US you will notice something strange though. The keyboard for the i7 model is "Backlight French-English". None of the other ones are like that. The others all say "Backlight English".
I asked someone at Lenovo what that meant because I was concerned that it wasn't in QWERTY format. They said (and im not sure I believe them) that it only meant that some of the keys have French characters underneath them. The keys should be in the same spot. When I looked up images of French-English keyboards, a lot of them have 2 characters on EVERY key. It looks like the keyboard can either be in French or English mode, but it also looks confusing because the characters are the same size.
I asked Lenovo why the heck they would make 1 model that comes with a weird keyboard and every other model doesn't, and they didn't have an answer. I haven't received the laptop yet but im a little nervous as to what to expect. I love the specs and the design of the laptop, but if the keyboard is a jumbled mess of characters then I may regret my purchase. I don't look at the keyboard to type, but I still feel like it could be very confusing.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 3 keyboard is weird

If you'd like to see the keyboard up close, here is an image of what Lenovo does with French-English Keyboards. This is NOT a photo of the Flex 3, but of an older model laptop that they used a French-English keyboard. It may give you an idea of what one might look like. It basically makes it easier to enter French accent characters.

Hi everybody I am new in this forum. I have a new Flex 2 14 since some days and I am trying to figure out how the keyboard works. I used to work with one Mac and typing characters was pretty easy.. what appears just on the keys ti will be typed when I write. Now with my new  Flex 2 it doesn't seem to work like that anymore. I have some blue keys that work when the keyboard is set as English Canadian multilingual.. others that don't write at all what is written on them.. (example the blue key give me the " " when i type on it, and I found by chance how to type the " " character). Yesterday while I was writing an e-mail I needed to type the " " but I wasn't able to find the key equivalent on the keyboard so I had to use the touchscreen keyboard to get right my " ". Another time I was looking to insert the " [ " brackets but I had to change the language on my keyboard from " English Canadian" to "English US" to get them.Can I make my typing easier? Is there any way to get all the basic symbols on my keyboard without switching language or using the touchscreen keyboard?I would like to make faster writing as I was used to do with my Mac. I looked for instructions but nothing is specified. Thank you for your help

I just purchased a Lenovo Y50 UHD about a week ago, and the keyboard has been really bugging me. All the keys in the near vicinity of the 'G' and 'H' key in the center of the keyboard for some reason trigger a weird flex/trampoline style effect, which is very noticeable compared to keys near the edge of the keyboard (Tab, Q, number pad, etc.) I'm not sure if this is something that is prevalent in all models of the Y50 or Y50 UHD so it'd be great if i got some feedback from other owners. I'm definitely considering returning if this is a common problem. Thanks.

I noticed with the T500 I purchased there existed some keyboard flex. I got sort of used to it. One of the keys broke (my own doing). I replaced the keyboard from my old T60 (FRU No: 42T3209). Wow! What a huge difference. The old design is superior in every way. It does weigh a little more but the difference in feel and ruggedness make it a much better choice. I am going to order a second 42T3209 keyboard for the T60. If anyone gets annoyed with the keyboard flex, I suggest searching (ebay, parts surplus) for the 42T3209 keyboard. To Lenovo: Please consider the old keyboard design in future models. Thank you.

Hi all. So 2 days ago I was using the laptop for some course work, I then went asleep for maybe 2 hours and when I woke up I was unable to use the touchpad or kyboard. Now I had this issue before but it seemed to fix itself after a day or two. So far I have reset the computer while keeping all my own files, updated, deleted, reinstalled the drivers multiple times, removed the keypad to ensure the ribbon wasn't loose etc etc. I have since been able to get the touchpad to work by messing with the drivers but the keyboard remains the same. I oticed I am able to use it when either the laptop is held at an angle or if the screen if opened up almost flat. I'm guessing this is a driver issue but I can't for the life of me figure out how to resolve this. The laptop is a few years old so no warranty. I've done a lot of reading online about this issue and it seems many people have had the same problem but no posts gave me any real solution. Any help is very much appreciated. I relly don't know what to do now.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 14-- screen dim, keyboard not working

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Water spilled into a laptop can cause a variety of problems as well as short  circuits.  It would be difficult to pin point exactly where your problems lie.  I suspect though that laptop isn't thoroughly dried out yet which maybe part of the problem.  I would suggest you open it up and let it continue to dry out, before proceeding further.  For your reference here is a link to your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual.......

Answer:Lenovo Flex 3 1580 Keyboard problem

Hi 18jadietrich, 
 
Greetings. 
 
Try if you have the same issue using an external USB keyboard.
 
As the way described seems to be mechanical in nature and may need hardware servicing.
If your warranty is still active, best to call in technical support to avoid voiding warranty.
 
Users are not required to do manual troubleshooting other than checking if the W key is cleared from foreign materials causing this using compressed air cans.
 
Hope this help answer your query.

I haven't done any researches around the forums but I'll get straight to posting. I noticed that the camera is super black when I'm using it especially when using the Lenovo Motion Control feature. And the only way to make it brighter is to change the capture resolution on the Camera Man app. I tried reinstalling drivers and even fully recycling the PC. I guess that's not clear enough to make my question clear. The first time I use the Camera app was good enough. But the time I started using Lenovo Motion Control, it's unresponsive. I took a look at the camera app and found out that the camera wasn't really capturing anything. Well, it was but it's pitch black and it only captures very bright ilght sources. It's too annoying that I have to go to Camera Man app and change the capture resolution to make it lighter again for reuse. But it will revert back to pitch black again after quite some time not using it (or even in the next use seconds later). I also tried reinstalling the drivers with no luck. I reset my PC with no changes at all. Now I'm trying to fully recycle the PC to make sure that it's not a hardware issue. The last resort is bringing the unit back to the store and demand the same model even if they have to pull it out from different branches.

Step-3: Open Device Manager under Control Panel and update the driver for Intel(R) HD Graphics
Step-4: Make sure that Ctrl+Alt+Down Arrow rotates the screen 180 degrees. Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow will bring the screen to its normal position.
Step-5: Bring your laptop to the tent mode and check if the screen rotates.

Hi guys,I recently bought a lenovo Flex 2 -14" one. It's been almost two weeks now, and I suddenly face this problem.The keyboard and touchpad together keeps getting disconnected at times. The backlight also keeps blinking when turned on. During that time, I am not able to receive any response via the touchpad and keyboard. It's like a loose connection. Keeps turning on and off!!Please help me out asap!Thanks

Answer:Lenovo flex 2 -14 keyboard and touchpad giving irregular response

Hello, looks like i found the solution! I recently came across another post in this forum, where the user had reported his g5050 showing similar symptoms like mine. A lenovo admin had suggested that it might be due to excess charge stored on the laptop, causing the whole f the keyboard and the touchpad to act like its loosely connected. Solution:As soon as i find my laptop fully charged, immediatley i took off the power plug going into the laptop!And now, its all working fine!

Answer:Lenovo Flex 2 14 model 20404, keyboard backlighting problem

For keyboard backlight sticker, is there a word 'optional'? I learn that if the space bar does not have a light icon, then there is no backlight. That's what I see from my Flex 2-15

Hello, My Lenovo U310 exhibits terrible amounts of flex on the keyboard and the surrounding areas. Does anybody else with the same or similar model have this issue? And, more importantly, does anyone have a fix for this? ie. Home DIY fix etc. Cheers, Martin

As you see an end of the wire is connected to laptop circuit but the other one is not connected to keyboard body. In fact, I don't know where it must be connected. Check out further image below : http://i68.tinypic.com/fn8my1.jpghttp://i64.tinypic.com/219cvm8.jpghttp://i66.tinypic.com/30kf2wp.jpg

I recently purchased a new Pioneer DDJ SB2 DJ controller. Upon downloading the neccessary software and firmware from Serato DJ and Pioneer, I connected my controller to my computer via usb cord provided by Pioneer. However, when I opened Serato to start playing around, a error message came up saying that my hardware was disconnected. I looked up support from Serato as I thought it was a software issue. I quickly realized it wasn't after going through all the troubleshooting steps they provided. I then asked my friend to try out the program on his computer (MacBook), to see if it was a software issue or a computer problem. As expected it instantly worked on his laptop without any issues. I determined it was a problem with my computer. I took it to Geek Squad so they could have a look. Unable to fix it, they believe its a Windows 10 issue. So now I am coming to Lenovo to see if they can fix this problem. I find it ridiculous that out of nowhere my computer can no longer detect a usb plug in from my iPhone, external harddrive, and DJ controller.  Has anybody else had these issues?Specs: Windows 10Version 1607Intel Core i78.00GB RAM64-bit operating system
