Preferred Solution: Lenovo edge 15 & edge 2 hard disk running at 100 %

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, The new disk (SSD) is smaller in size 128 GB instead of 250 GB. (Only using about 80GB) How can I transfer the current installation to the new disk? How can I make a new installation (factory settings) ot the OS on the new SSD disk? What options do I have? Thanks in advance!Uno

Answer:Best way to transfer/reinstall the OS to a new SSD disk. on a Lenovo Edge 13?

Hello Uno and welcome to community,
 
To have Operating System on SSD is good as the performance is better.
 
If you have the rescue and recovery disc available then install SSD and boot the laptop with the rescue and recovery disc and select SSD while installing Operating System
 
Choose factory default and you will get in a same position as when you got the laptop.
 
 
Best Regards,
Tanuj

Me again! At this point (after 2 lost days of work!) We don't have anything special saved on there, it's all in the cloud (scary), so a reset would be awesome. My partner tried the a USB boot (since the battery is integrated and we can't remove and there are no cd/dvd drives, we made a usb flash drive). No success. Also: It's been 'upgraded' to windows 10.

Hi guys, I just got a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge S430 and the default installation wouldn't recognize my external hard drive. I formatted the computer and reinstalled Windows 7 64bit, and it worked fine. Now I have installed all Lenovo Programs and suddently it again doesn't recognize it. The Hard Drive lights as it is powered, but Windows doesn't make the sound of a USB plugged in nor does it show up on my list of hard drives under Computer. The external uhard drive works fine on my backup computer, and USB sticks works fine on my new Lenovo. Does anyone know if any particular Lenovo program can block my computer from finding my larger external hard drive, or what could be the problem? Cheers!

Answer:Thinkpad Edge 13 - Windows Installation on new Hard Disk Key issue

Hi Gooose,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
We understood that you are facing the issue with Windows key activation on ThinkPad Edge 13.
 
Check removing the battery on the backside of the system, for some system the Windows license sticker will be placed under battery.
 
Please click here to know how to remove the battery from the system, and go to page no 69.
 
And also verify the Windows version you had earlier in your system is Windows Ultimate.
 
Hope this helps. 
 
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

Hello to all, This is my first post.
Today I found out that Google had limited its search service on Edge by MicrosoftInsider.es, and this happens
This is a great hoax, and also seems to make it or for two reasons:
1. Attempt of Stop of growth of Microsoft Edge
or 2. Google Revenge
What is the solution? This:
Press F12 (if you are on a laptop press Fn + F12), This open the F12 Tools
After go to Emulation, in Browser select or Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and Solutionated.
Well, I hope to see their opinions and also see that users of Google in Edge make.

PD: i use Bing

Answer:Google limits the search service in Microsoft Edge ¿this is a hazard for the grow of Edge?

I'm not exactly sure about what you're saying.. Afaik Google hasn't implemented any limits for Edge users. Do you have proof of this? The picture you have added does not proof that Google has implemented a limited number of searches for Edge users

Microsoft Edge does not have any control buttons, from the opening page you have to search to get to any website.
Does anyone know how to get these to work in edge? As of right now it is a useless program and a huge step backwards from IE11.

Answer:Edge has no back, forward, home, url, favorites, or settings. How can I get all of these to work in Edge?

if you are talking about the mobile version i have to say it haves all of the above exept the forward button

I've been having this problem since I upgraded to the creator's update. Sometimes everything works perfectly, but most of the time I have these issues:

Edge won't connect to internet or load anythingI can't close tabs in EdgeThe "Close all tabs" option in edge doesn't work, only closes 1 tabI can only get Edge to close using Task ManagerWindows Store apps like Twitter and Netflix won't connect and also sometimes won't closeI can't check for Windows updates through settings (won't connect again)

The internet works on third party apps that weren't downloaded in the Windows Store, like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Spotify. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this or how I could fix it? Thanks so much!

Hi ineedhelppls. Welcome to the TenForums @ineedhelppls

First thing I would do is run these commands at command prompt(admin). In the following commands do not key in the information in brackets, it is there to tell you what command does.

ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
nbtstat -RR (release and refesh NetBIOS names)
netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)

Test.

Then I would disable IPv6. You will notice it can be enabled just as easy.

If you still get issues I would recommend a network reset. You will lose wireless passwords.

I ve bought thinkpade edge 13 (0221RY6) and formated my hdd (was trying to install win XP). But now i am ready to switch on Windows seven and i am very sorry that i ve formated my HDD with pre installed windows 7.Somebody who has same machine PLS Can u give me your copy of recovery usb or link on it! Or any other help.THANKS!

Answer:I have lost my Recovery HDD with pre installed windows 7 on ThinkPad Edge 13 edge PLS Need HElp!

This is why one should burn recovery media before fiddling with the HD.
 
One option would be to download a legal Windows 7 ISO and install it.  Or borrow one.  You can use the product key on the bottom of your machine (or in the battery compartment) to activate the installation.  You may have to use the phone option to activate.
 
Working Legal Windows 7 Download Links 
 
To do this you must install the same version of Windows that came on your machine - but it can be either 32 or 64 bit.
 
Your machine came with Win7 Home Basic 32.  I can't say for certain that these "all version" ISOs include that version, but you can try and see.
 
Once you have Windows installed, go to the Lenovo support page and enter your machine type.  That will take you to a list of drivers and apps to download.  Expand the ThinkVantage option and install ThinkVantage System Update.  You can then run it and it will download and install the other software automatically.
 
I'm basing this on what I see on the US pages.  Yours may be different.
 
Good luck,
Z.

I tried upping from recommended 250% to 350% for use of a genealogy program made that program larger but nothing else and if I use pinch to spread out and enlarge then screen impossible to work on because it just jumps from side to side I set everything back and restated and still the same display smaller than before.  I have Nvided GEForce 960M video card and right now laptop is useless.

Answer:Display on XPS Infiniti edge to edge now so small cannot read anything

I didn't even realize you could go that high.  When I tried 250%, some things became so large that it became impossible to click important buttons since there wasn't enough display area to present them.  It sounds like your genealogy program isn't scaling-aware.  Also note that in some cases, after changing the scaling setting, you need to log off and back onto Windows for the change to fully take effect.
Also, what version of Windows are you running?  The display scaling functionality has changed significantly with each release of Windows from Win7 on, including within the various releases of Windows 10.

I have the same exact set up on both machines (very darn close) and Ive always noticed that Edge consumes around 500mb-1GB of mem upon start up with my predesignated 5 tabs.
After the TH2 update on my desktop, I was blown away that Edge now only consumed 30-150mb, even with a twitch stream rolling in the background for extra measure. However, on the SP3 (after TH2) the memory usage is still the same
What gives?

Hello, I just bought an Edge 15 and I'm wondering if backlight bleed is a common problem with it. There are several places around the edge of the display where the backlight discolors the screen. I've attached a picture; note the top edge of the screen especially. Is this normal, or is it worth looking into a repair?  Also, I'm surprised that this model does not appear on Lenovo's website at all. I have only found one review for it, and it seems Best Buy was the only one to sell it. Anyone know about that? EDIT: Apparently my thread was moved to the ThinkPad Edge forum, though I'm pretty sure that this is not a ThinkPad Edge series device (as far as I can tell that series was discontinued and this was not ThinkPad branded). If someone could clarify that would be awesome. Thanks!

Using Windows 10 version 1511 and all updates.  Used the Lenovo System Update and everything has been updated.  I wanted to turn on the built-in camera on my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 530, the F5 key, and it came up with a message saying, "This key combination opens the Lenovo Settings Program. You do not have the Lenovo Settings Program installed on your computer. To launch the program using this key combination, install the program first." I went and downloaded the Thinkpad Settings Dependency for Windows 10, restarted the laptop and it still doesn't work. Even the Lenovo System Update program has it and I also downloaded it.  I restarted the laptop again and it still doesn't work. I then went to install the Lenovo Settings App on the Windows store and it doesn't look like the right one plus it still didn't work. My other problem is with the Lenovo Companion App from the Windows Store.  It worked before but now it ask to "Please install or update the Lenovo System Interface Driver for full functionality of Companion, then restart the app after installation."  I have installed the Lenovo System Interface Driver multiple times and it still popped up that message.  Yes, I have restarted the laptop and Companion.   Is there a reason why these issues are happening and how to fix it?  Thank you in advance.

Good evening! I have a Lenovo Edge 2 that has been babied since purchased. Never abused, dropped, no scratches or dents, it's in fantastic condition still. I purchased the extended warranty, hoping I'd never need it.Last year, it stopped charging properly. The battery power dropped to 0%, and hasn't increased since. The machine will only power on when plugged in to AC power, and will immediately power down when the adapter is disconnected. The charging status indicator LED on the right side of the machine flashes orange in a non-steady, intermittent pattern, and the charging indicator in the taskbar in Windows 10 does the same thing. I returned the machine to Best Buy, they sent it to their "Geek Squad" facility for repairs, and the AC Adaptor and battery were replaced, under warranty. The machine was returned to me, and still doesn't charge.I contacted Lenovo, they advised I would need to return it to their facility for repairs. I put it in the provided box, and dropped it off to FedEx on 6/24/17. It's now been 2 weeks. I contacted Lenovo to inquire about the status of the repair, and was told "The technician found evidence of damage, and the upper case will need to be replaced as well, but damage isn't covered under warranty, so you'll need to cover the cost of the repair." I asked for the price, was told "A technician will email you with the price."

Question: Lenovo edge 15

Okay so, I left my laptop on while I went to go feed my dogs, and when I came back I couldn't view the desktop or anything, it was just a black screen with a gray and blue box in the middle
In the box it says
Boot menu
1. windows boot manager
2.ATA HDD: DISK
And then there is another tab labeled app menu and it has a setup and diagnostic splash
Any time I try to exit the screen goes black for a few seconds then goes back to the boot menu, same thing happens when I try to click anything in the boot menu. can someone please help me?

I just purchased a Lenovo Edge 15 As seen here I am wanting to maybe upgrade to a SSD in the near future and I was wondering if anyone knew if a  mSATA drive can be installed along with the conventional 1TB drive. I did not see anything listed on the product manual (Here) and my laptop is too "new" to go breaking into for exploration.

I am looking for a high quality edge to edge printer for lowish volume A4 and letter format paper.To be used professionally for brochurs and flyers. Quality is more important than speed.Anybody got any direct experience and recommendations - I noticed this question doesn't google too well.

Answer:Edge to Edge printer recommendations

If by "edge to edge" you mean borderless printing then there are many Epson printers available. I have an Epson 895 Borderless (very old now and not available anymore) and an Epson R200, both of which do borderless printing. But the Epson r200, r300, C66 and C86 are all borderless.Try here and check out specifications and prices.click here

Hi,I have an edge 15 first gen (with i7 4510u) and my digitizer broke. I bought a new one and only then found out the hard way I can't seperate the digitizer and the LCD - and broke both.Thinking about how worn my machine is (touchpad is flimsy and the metel is bent everywhere), I was thinking of buying the cheapest new i3 (I think it's edge 2, model is 80k9) off ebay, then swapping my old mainboard in place of the new i3 mainboard. Then I may get an almost new laptop.Do you think it will work, will the older mainboard fit in the newer machine?Thanks.

Windows 7 I am on a Gateway Intel 400 2 gb Ram 1 Tb harddrive using my large screen TV Mitsibuish as my monitor. Since installing Windows 7 my display has been edge to edge on my TV display. Recently after downloading a startup utility called starstartup my display changed with a two inch border on all sides. I have since deleted the startup utility but the border remain. I restored my computer to an earlier restore point nothing changed. So I think there must be another reason for this change in the display. On another hard drive with Windows XP which was also displaying edge to edge display but after I installed windows 8 beta the same thing occurred there was a border instead of the edge to edge display. I attempted to change the resolution which was on 1920 X 1080 to a lesser resolution but that didn't correct the display. So the resolution is back to 1920 X 1080. I clicked on full screen mode stay the same. Would like to get back to the edge to edge display. Hope you can help. Xandr

I was going to make a compare thread between Microsoft Edge and Chrome, but because it was so blatantly obvious that Chrome was going to tear Edge a new one in the polls, I didn't bother. Instead, I open up this discussion for you all here. Since evolving out of internet explorer, do you find yourself ever using Microsoft Edge?

I will talk only about security, i don't care about design and personalization.

Chrome by default is weaker than Edge, Edge as all Windows Apps run under Appcontainer (aka Windows' sandbox) , this Integrity Level is even deeper than Sandboxie or any other sandboxing softs.

Now Chrome has a native sandbox that use Windows' mechanisms, so a tweak can be applied to Chrome to make it run under Appcontainer as Edge. it is why i use it for now.

We all know that Edge will progressively use extensions , so in the end Edge will be as good or better than Chrome; when extensions will be available, i will have no more reasons to use Chrome.

Is this machine Windows 10 compatible?

Answer:Lenovo Edge 15 - 0319-3UG

Good day.
 
That model is not in the compatibility list: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht103535
That doesn't mean that it can't be made to work with Win10, just that if it is possible, it will likely take extra effort to find appropriate drivers for your devices. There may also be cases where no drivers will be available.
 
If you choose to try it, please share your results.

Hi all.  Quick question: I just purchased a Lenovo Edge 15 - 80K9000AUS and was wondering if the mainboard supports SATA II or III? I'm planning to buy a new SSD to replace the normal 1TB HDD and cannot find the information online. Also, does anyone have a good guide for me to transfer Windows 8 to the new SSD? (there is no system DVD). Thank-you! 

Answer:SATA II or III on Lenovo Edge 15?

Hi Adams3355,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are looking for drive up-gradation from HDD to SSD 3.0 for your ThinkPad Edge 15.
 
Yes it will support SSD 3.0 you can check for the detailed specification of supported hardware for your system from the below link.
 
http://support.lenovo.com/en/documents/migr-75358#stor
 
And regarding transfer of Windows 8 from HDD to SSD, I suggest you to create the recovery media first and then run the same after replacing the drive. Below is the procedure on how to create the recovery media.
 
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht076024
 
Hope this helps.
 
Best regards,

You do not have the Lenovo Settings Program installed on your computer. To launch the program using this key combination, install the program first." I went and downloaded the Thinkpad Settings Dependency for Windows 10, restarted the laptop and it still doesn't work.

Answer:Running windows 10 AEd . confused over IE11 and EDGE

Windows 10 comes with both IE11 and Edge built in. Edge is Microsoft's recommended browser and the one where all future development will concentrate. But the business world would throw up their hand in horror if IE was removed - many bespoke company Intranet applications will only work with IE because only IE can run Microsoft ActiveX controls. Indeed Microsoft's own Update Catalog website will only work with IE for the same reason.

You have IE if you really need it but MS don't really want you to use it, so it's hidden away on an infrequently visited part of the All Apps list. It's to be found under 'Windows Accessories'. The only other place you can find it is (ironically) in Edge. Open any webpage, click on the 'three dots' icon at the top right and one of the items in the menu that appears is 'Open with Internet Explorer'. However you get to it, once running you can pin it to the taskbar.

But finding IE isn't necessarily going to help you fix Edge's video problems, the settings you need to change may be in Edge, not IE. It's not clear what you mean by 10 A.Ed. Can you type Winver in the search box next to Start and run it. To be of more help we need to know the full set of numbers shown there for the version and OS build.

What I can tell you is that for my version 1607 (OS Build 14393.187) Edge has no such problems showing videos from MSN.

When starting the machine, the red light turns on, the fan spins up (after a second or two, it briefly spins down and then spins up again) and the screen remains blank. I attached an external monitor, but that one stayed in its sleep mode, so there's probably no signal on the port. Anything I can try before spending money on a new laptop? Best,Koen

Hi. I am experincing an annoying problem with my Edge 13. When running on battery it suddenly goes into hibernation while im working with the pc - not because it was left untouced for some time. It does this "trick" at all battery levels, it has happened some times while battery level was between 80 and 90 % It seems to bappen 2-4 times while using up a full charge. I have tried changing the critical battery level action in windows power mgt from hibernate to sleep, so instead it goes into sleep. Seems like windows/power mgt. software receives a faulty critical battery level signal from the hardware. (edited: changing the critcal battery level action makes it go into sleep instead of hibernation) K625, bios 1.17, newest verision of power mgt. software. Anyone else having experienced this kind of problem ? I hate these non-dead/periodical problems; bringing the machine in for warranty will probably result in it being returned with the standard "no errors found, cleaned and adjusted" :-( Best regards,Erik

Anybody familiar with this product? Our corporate security guys have mandated it for all laptops. No problem right? Well until I installed it on the old Toshiba they gave me to use. Installed it, reboot, everything's fine. Take it home, leave it for a couple weeks, boot it up, no joy. I get the black screen that says Guardian Edge, blah blah version 9.3.0.... then it goes black and says preparing pre-windows environment, then a black screen with blinking cursor. Forever. I left it for 2 days and no joy. Called the corporate honks and of course that had never happened before, format reinstall. Cool. Did that. All is well. Install Guardian Edge again, reboot, runs perfectly. Let it stay on overnight to finish doing the encryption as I thought maybe the first time it didn't complete which was why it crapped out. Anyway, shut it off and left it for a few hours, turn it on, same black screen. Now it won't even let me format the drive and gives me STOP 0x0000006b. Process1 initialization failed. The corporate honks said that it wouldn't be locked and that even if it was they would need it to boot farther than that to get in and unlock it. So now what?

Answer:Why don't Lenovo care about Edge owners?

Do you have an invoice of your laptop? If so, check it to see the purchase date is the same as it says on the website.The website shows the MANUFACTURING DATE for my laptop, not that I bought it last August. And even if it shows the right date, your waranty is valid up to Februari 5th, which is today. They can't say it's out of waranty until tomorrow.

For the past few monthes I have been experiencing ghost touches on the screen of my Lenovo Edge 15. I have disable the touchscreen because this problem leaves it unusable. I know a solution has been found to solve this for the Yoga but have not found one for the Edge 15. Has anyone found a fix?

I got a Lenovo Edge 15 with preinstalled Windows 7. However, it didn't come with any Windows disc. I usually like to format, repartition and install everything from scratch. I made a windows recovery DVD, but that's only ~250 MB in size. Is that it, or am I missing something?If I completely format my hard disc, will that dvd be enought to reinstall windows? Thanks.

In control panel, backup and restore, there's options for burning a system repair disc and a image disc. The system repair disc is probably what you burned.  You would also need the image, but again, that will just put everything back on there.
 
You should do all that before you do anything else.  Once you do all that, you "can" do this:
 
You can download a windows 7 image and use your key on the bottom of your machine.  Download the image to disc or usb flash drive and intall it on your machine.  When it says to enter the key, don't.  Let it intall and go to the desktop.  Don't let it get online yet.  Reboot.  Get to the desktop and before you go online, go to control panel, system and at the bottom enter the key.  Reboot.  When you get back to the desktop, get online and go to system and at the bottom, activate windows.  You'll probably have to activate it by phone, it only takes about 10 minutes and that will give you a clean install.
 
Before you do that though I would burn your restore discs and get a system repair disc and an ima... Read more
