Ideapad Y700 new firmware CDCN53WW is a disaster

Question: Ideapad Y700 new firmware CDCN53WW is a disaster

So yesterday I decided to update some drivers and I noticed there was a new BIOS version, version CDCN53WW.My Y700-15ISK was running the CDCN52WW. The new firmware was correctly updated and the armageddon started.I immediately noticed two things but I bet that's just the tip of the iceberg: 1. Some external HDD we not seen anymore by the system 2. The computer had a random crash watching a video, something I hadn't seen since more than a decade ago, the audio getting stuck, the image frozen (4 sec pressure on the OFF button necessary). The first case was interesting, I have 4 external HDDs, one has an issue with the USB 3.0 so I can only use it through a USB 2.0 cable, and curiously that one was the only one working; so I guess the problem was with the 3.0. I've encountered these two problems but I had enough.I decided to downgrade to version CDCN52WW. In order to do that, you need to enter the BIOS (press F2, reaaaally early on the boot process or you miss your moment) and find the setting where you can allow to downgrade the BIOS, if you don't do that the installer (CDCN52WW.exe) will refuse to install the BIOS claiming that the version installed is newer.After reinstalling version CDCN52WW all the problems went away.Someone at LENOVO should take a look at this update, I checked the changelog and not much has changed so, unless the modification was unmentioned, the thing that messed with all this was one of these items: [Modified] 1. Modify ME settings for Intel PTT disabled issue; 2. Set memory frequency limit from auto to 2133MHz. I wrote all this to help in case someone else has the same problem. No panic and downgrade the BIOS! :-)

Preferred Solution: Ideapad Y700 new firmware CDCN53WW is a disaster

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 latest V53 BIOS have two annoying bugs: 1. After putting laptop into sleep mode and turning it on again after 'some' time front speakers not working, only subwoofer works and playing lofreq only. After system reboot front speakers backs and plays normally. Sometimes that problem doesn't happen, all works nominally after laptop wake up. 2. After putting headphone plug into socket and remove it and putting plug again headphones output not work anymore - front speakers going to off state and no any sound output goes to headphones. After plug remove speakers back to playing normally, but headphone output not. Thats happens after laptop wake up from sleep mode and 'clean' reboot state too. In my opinion that problem is related to EC? firmware, after laptop wake up controller not properly reinitialized to 'normal' state and broke Realtek chip or drivers. System reboot fixes that problem because EC restarting/resetting when you done this. Tried reflashing BIOS to the same version - not fixing that problem too. Also I tested various Relatek drivers versions - from oldest to newest (and latest official Lenovo and latest official Realtek) - the problem exist at any tested drivers version. For reference what I use:- BIOS V53- UEFI mode with Secure Boot turned on and System Optimized enabled- Clean installed Windows 10 x64 1607 from MSDN with all latest updates and drivers installed- Realtek drivers v6.0.1.8018 WHQL (and from ...

Hi,In order to solve some problems that i thought were caused by the BIOS of my laptop (Y700-17ISK) i've upgraded my BIOS version from CDCN25WW to CDCN53WW with no problems in the process, but i've notice that with this newer version of the BIOS my Samsung 960EVO M.2 SSD is slower than ever. This BIOS version has decreased the speed of the M.2 port more than 50%. I've attached some pics that prooves the difference from one BIOS to another. I've tried to reflash my BIOS to CDCN35WW that is avaliable in the support download center, but it returns an error when it's trying to reflash the BIOS (YES, i've got admin privileges, i've executed the program as administrator and i've activated the flashback option in the BIOS).SSD Performance on CDCN25WW  SSD Performance on CDCN53WW  My question is: Where i can find the CDCN25WW BIOS for my laptop and how i can flashback to it? Thank you in advance.

Dear Lenovo, Please please get rid of the HIDEOUS Lenovo Pinata Color Explosion you guys have added to the bios with update cdcn53ww.Its GROSS, looks like vomit and an explosion of color. Hideous! Why would anyone want to see that HORRIBLE colored background behind the Lenovo logo? please get a new design director, or tell what ever programmer came up with this to stick to programming!! How can I edit this back to the standard white type on black. This has to be the most disgusting logo I have seen since the 80's!!!

I'm desperate as my computer is experiencing several crashed after firmware

update.... I need IT to work as soon as possible!

..so yesterday I updated the firmware of my Waitec Storm 40 cd burner. (I

used the winflash tool and the .bin file from Waitec website).
Winflash went smooth giving me a - Succesful Firmware Update! - at the end.
Everything seemed fine after restarting, except that my old burner still

didn't work - not big deal I thought as I already planned to buy a new

burner.

Half an hour later disaster - Blue Screen !

KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

WIN32K.SYS Address BF93095D base BF800000, Datestamp 41107f7a

I started to Panic about the firmware update.
As I restarted the machine I had the error: Searching for Boot Record from

IDE-0..Not Found.


Only after I left the machine few minute powered off, I had the chance to

full start up into windows - but, not long after I had the second Crash:

stop: 0x0000007E (0xC00001D, 0XF7577595, 0xF797A7B8, 0xF797A4B4)

Answer:32 GB Ram on Ideapad Y700-15ISK ?

Hi basitj  , 
 
 
Greetings . 
 
I was also waiting for other members to try going beyond 16 GB on this model.  
So far,  was not able to get a verified working upgrade on this model most likely since it was just released in the market and that it is using DDR4 already.  
 
Seen models that worked from beyond recommended RAM from OEM since memory controller of processor usually exceed whole system max ram. This is due to systemboard limitation and firmware identification set by OEM. 
 
If you can have your company IT group test it or have computer shop to try going beyong 16 GBDDR4 then it's the only time we can decide . 
 
Update us if possible , it would be a good reference for our community. 
 
 
Regards

My Y700 is less than 2-month old. Recently, I was facing the following issue. I am able to repeat the issue by only boot up the laptop and leave it without running any other applications. 1. First, the keyboard becomes non-responsive after sometime. At this point, the mouse from touch pad still works, and I can continue the applications (if any) I already started. However, trying to launch any new application, even as simple as "cmd" or "taskmgr" will fail. 2. Some time later, the laptop totally freezes. Sometimes, it will reboot and enter the "Nova button mode" - but still, the keyboard freezes and I can't select any other options (once I tried to attach an external USB keyboard before it freezes, then in the Nova button mode, the external keyboard works, but any option, "normal boot", "recovery mode", or whatever, simply fails and hangs). Sometimes, it simply hangs. In both cases, the only thing I can do is keep pressing the power button to force shut down. This is really annoying. Anybody has similar experience? Any solution? (I could try factory restore, but come on...it is only 2-month old!)

I just received my IdeaPad Y700, unboxed it, and plugged it in. Now it should be fine considering I literally just pulled it from the box, but no. I power it up and the screen does not turn on. There's also a weird clicking noise heard from the right hand corner. I research online that letting the battery die before restarting it could possibly fix this issue, so I do that. I give it some time to rest before plugging it back in and restarting it. Again, black screen. Now after this, I decide to just power it off look for a support number.The laptop keeps powering back on. No matter how many times I power this off, it keeps restarting itself. I've resolved to just letting the battery drain. Anyone else have this issue or anyway to resolve this?

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...

I don't know what to do anymore.The support of this company is terrible, I've called and called and called.I ordered a Ideapad Y700 back in november, it was shipped to me in December of 2016 damaged. I called and set up a repair, and it was recieved by the repair center on the 15th of December.It's now a month later since I sent it in, and still nothing. The repair center is now saying that it will be repaired in 83 to 87 bussiness days? It would be faster to just send me a new laptop, this is ridiculous. I've asked for multiple call-backs, trying to get my case escalated or something and I never recieve any calls. The phone support just brushes me off, or hangs up on me when I try to ask when it will be repaired. Terrible service I've recieved, I just want the laptop that I payed for. Not to wait around for 4+ months waiting for a simple repair to a machine that was sent to me damaged. What do I do to get this fixed.

Hey all!I bought a Lenovo Ideapad Y700 15ISK Laptop  (touch version) exactly a month ago through a seller, since I live in Pakistan & as far I know Lenovo doesn't officially function here. Other details: Windows 10; core i7; 16gb; 512gb memory. About a week ago i clicked on the wrong link and got a terrible virus because of which i had to reformat my hard drive by reloading my Windows 10 (through that full/all disk reset option). What that resulted in was a simple windows 10 (without the preloaded software which I kinda want back), and a heck of a lot of problems. Firstly, is there any way to get back that preloaded software? I've tried searching everywhere but can't really find it; found the nvidia and reltek stuff but that's it. Secondly, the black screen of death; this was something that happened to me the very first time i opened the laptop, and the second time after i reloaded it. It hasn't happened since, but was wondering if there's a way to fix without physically doing anything to the laptop. Thirdly, ever since I've reloaded windows, the on-screen indicators for caps lock and num lock do not show up, and I really want those because i'm still adjusting to this keyboard. I've tried looking for it here on the forum, but all the instructions are for windows 7 or maybe 8, nothing for windows 10 (the instructions for windows 7 can't apply to windows 10 because the options aren't the same).

Grettings. So, last year i bought this Ideapad Y700 Touch-15ISK gaming laptop and i really love it, just that i would like to make a small upgrade to it, like having a SSD (exclusively to load OS) and a HDD (to install games/software, etc), i just wonder if it's possible (if the hardware has the slot to do so). Also i was wondering if i can replace it's graphics card to a higher-tier one (it came with a GeForce GTX 960M, was thinking to get the GTX 980M), as i was thinking to assemble a gaming PC, i thought it would be easier to me to just upgrade my gaming laptop (and save a lot more money doing so) Thanks in advance

I recently picked up this laptop and personally prefer to use the microphone attached to my headset for voice recording rather than the one built into the laptop. I've got a a splitter to handle the combo jack on the headset. However the laptop doesn't seem to recognize the microphone and can't set it as a default device in the audio settings. I just picked up this laptop less than a week ago though so its possible I could be missing something that should be blantantly obvious. For reference the adapter and combo jack headset worked just fine on my previous device, which was a Microsoft Surface. Any help is appreciated!

Does anyone have any problem on playing Blade and Soul with Ideapad Y700 (Intel Core i5-6300HQ, 8GB, 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M, Windows 10)? I do not much problem playing other games (Tera, Aion, NFS, and etc) on this laptop but this is the only game that I have trouble playing. I personally, do like this laptop and it is value gaming laptop, so I should not expect much from it. But it runs other games perfectly... I tried changing the Nvidia 3d setting to high performance but I still get low FPS (30~40), even with the lowest setting.  Is this laptop not capable of playing this game or what is the problem? If you have any solution, please share with me.

I ordered a Lenovo IdeaPad y700 on Sept. 12th thinking it would be shipping out within a day or two (as advertised on the website). However, when the order finally went through and I checked the status, it says that my unit will be shipping out on October 10th (nearly a month after the initial purchase) and won't arrived until a week after that (Oct. 17th).Is this information accurate? I made the purchase due to my personal liking for the unit however, since I need it for my studies/recreation, I would like to have it sooner than a month from now as I am virtually without a computer until this arrives. I don't even understand how it's possible to take that long to ship a unit which comes stock with no modifications at all.If everything I've read on the order status is correct, I would prefer to just cancel my order and obtain the unit (or another similar unit) through  another avenue, because waiting a month from now for a stock laptop in 2016 is absolutely absurd. If anyone has any information that could help or has been through this run around before, I'd appreciate any assistance. Thanks in advance. Also if this is posted in the wrong section/forum, I'd gladly post it elsewhere upon request.

The carrizo fx 8800p is throttling heavily as for the 15wTDP.when playing assasin creed syndicate at high setting it does give 35-50 fps when running at 3.4ghz but it throttles to 1.3 within 5 seconds gap. SO IS THERE ANY WAY TO #FIX#!! IT ??? OR UNLOCK CPU VOLTAGE

Answer:ideapad y700-15ACZ APU throttle

Hey everyone I bought this same laptop and I am having the same issues that where discussed here I have the fx8800p model with r9 M385x.  Heatup to 80-85c then throttles hard loosing ~10fps  This is copied from that post which discribes what issues Im encountering http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/ideapad-y700-15acz-review.783192/    "Theoretically the performance is very good with framerates between 41 and 47 fps (~43 avg) but after 20 minutes i experienced heavy frame drops (last screenshot). Those are caused by the CPU that throttles down to 1,4 GHz for a few seconds and thus makes the game unplayable. No tools i checked would show the CPU temps so it is hard to say what the cause is. The GPU reaches 85 degree max. and this seems to be the point where the system starts to throttle and even GPU clock speeds are lower than they should (700 - 900 MHz)." I Would love to use this laptop to game on as it does give good proformance but as the cooling setup doesnt not seem up to the task.  Also this is what Im seeing.  I have yet to see the r9m385x run at 1000mhz ever and the memory is always at 1200mhz not the 1500mhz amd says it can be used at.  I really dont understand how this product can come out with such heat issues. Im seeing temps when gaming around 80-85c and up to 92c which is scary for me. I even have a cooling pad that doesnt seem to do much.  But regardless very poor cooling and I cannot... Read more

When I push the shut on button, laptop starts to turn on but after 1 or 2 seconds it turn off suddenly (like a cut of energy). After that, laptop turns on normally and works perfect. I'm worried because I think that the cut of energy could damage HDD or something else.I tried with solution center but it shows that everything is okRestored system and the problem still there. I'm afraid that is a hardware problem.

Hey all!I bought a Lenovo Ideapad Y700 15ISK Laptop  (touch version) exactly a month ago through a seller, since I live in Pakistan & as far I know Lenovo doesn't officially function here. Other details: Windows 10; core i7; 16gb; 512gb memory. About a week ago i clicked on the wrong link and got a terrible virus because of which i had to reformat my hard drive by reloading my Windows 10 (through that full/all disk reset option). What that resulted in was a simple windows 10 (without the preloaded software which I kinda want back), and a heck of a lot of problems. Firstly, is there any way to get back that preloaded software? I've tried searching everywhere but can't really find it; found the nvidia and reltek stuff but that's it. Secondly, the black screen of death; this was something that happened to me the very first time i opened the laptop, and the second time after i reloaded it. It hasn't happened since, but was wondering if there's a way to fix without physically doing anything to the laptop. Thirdly, ever since I've reloaded windows, the on-screen indicators for caps lock and num lock do not show up, and I really want those because i'm still adjusting to this keyboard. I've tried looking for it here on the forum, but all the instructions are for windows 7 or maybe 8, nothing for windows 10 (the instructions for windows 7 can't apply to windows 10 because the options aren't the same). ALSO, the on screen indicator for when i turn off the t... Read more

The second thing is what is the max RAM and storage the laptop can have? Lastly, will upgrading the RAM and SSD void my warranty?The "Hardware Maintenance Manual" (HMM) contains the specifications of your laptop (plus other information).  You can download it from the Lenovo web site.  Scroll to the bottom of this page and click "Manuals" in the "Support" column. I have an Ideapad 700-15ISK (not a Y700-15ISK), but I think that the answers to your questions are: (1) Two RAM sockets.  My 700 also has two RAM sockets, and the maximum RAM supported is 32 GB, but the Y700 might have a maximum of only 16 GB.  Look in the HMM to find out. (2) One M.2 SSD socket.  Note: not all brands and models of SSD are supported; you have to purchase an SSD that is on the list of supported SSDs (if you buy something else, there is no guarantee that it will work in the Y700).  Look in the HMM to see what SSD models are supported. (3) You can use an M.2 SSD with the HDD.  Alternatively, you could remove the HDD and replace it with a 2.5 inch SATA SSD. (4) I think (not sure) that the RAM, SSD, and HDD are regarded as "user replaceable parts", so you can change them without voiding your warranty.  But it needs someone from Lenovo to confirm...

Hi all,I'm in the need of restoring my Ideapad A10 model 20323 (loaned it to a friend who - genius - erased the internal sdcard to install a rom without backing up the disk).Nothing serious I said: it's simply a matter of downloading the firmware from Lenovo servers.Surprisingly, I couldn't find anything.I realize that the Ideapad A10 is an old model, but I think that Lenovo servers are big eneough to host the firmware of a discontinued model.Moreover, the netbook always worked well: so what should I do ? Throw it away only because of lack of such an easy remedy like downloading the restore image ?I am simply asking for what I paid for: the ability to use the product I purchased.I am confident that Lenovo will soon resolve this issue and will upload the firmware.

I am trying to install Windows 7 onto my new laptop because it came pre-installed with Windows 10, which I did not want. I was following the instructions here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Y700-15ISK-How-to-install-windows-7-64bit/td-p/... I reinstalled Windows and created the partitions as instructed, but when the Windows 10 installation finished, I went to install Windows 7 onto the other partition, but the other partition was nowhere to be found. Thinking I did something wrong when I created the partitions, I restarted the system with the intention of starting the process over again. I quickly found out that the boot menu no longer contained the option to access UEFI in the menu. It just simply is not there. I now have no way of changing my boot options to reinstall Windows or change any other BIOS options. Please help.

Hi,I bought an Ideapad Y700 about 2 months ago and I've been having problems with it since then. I contacted the costumer service lots of times but they weren't able to help me nor find any issue with my notebook. So, the problem I'm having is that I'm given a black screen RANDOMLY and it happens several times per day. The only way to get out of it is by manually reseting the computer. I was told to upgrade, downgrade, eveery single driver, bios or anything else you can think of but nothing seems to work. The worst part is that I bought it Poland I'm I'll have to take it back to Brazil, where I don't even know if they'll take a look at my problem.I realized that it seems that this problem happens when the computer is changing the video card priority from Intel HD Graphics 530 to my GTX 960M. If I do that often it seems to trigger the black screen, EVEN though de computer itself isn't that stressed. No heating problems or anything. And sometimes it just happens randomly while browsing or the net or doing anything else, honestly.Did anyone here had a similar issue or has any idea of what it could be? I searched A LOT on the net and tried almost everything possible, even factory reseted it lots of times. I'd be really grateful with any suggestions of what could be the issue.Also, here's a video of the problem happening in real time (runninf Furmark and watching a 4K video to stress it out):

If you have a multimeter, how much power is the AC adapter drawing while it is actually charging? Just to check if it is still powerful enough or dying.

Hi, I have just bought a new Ideapad Y700-15ISK for my wife. It works fine with Windows 10, but there is a small problem. The shop where I bought it changed the original 1T hard drive to a SSD and installed drivers and Windows 10 on that, however it seems that most Lenovo software, apart from a few Lenovo drivers, are missing. I am wondering if anybody here can tell me what Lenovo software is usually shipped with this PC. The drivers are easy to find on the support page, but I don't find a list of other software packages. I suppose it is of interest to install the Lenovo Power Management drivers and applications even if the PC seems to behave nicely on battery alone with the Windows/Intel power management. I have already worked several hours on battery only and I still have 66% left. Any ideas of what is necessary and what can safely be ignored is very wellcome. Regards,Frode

Hello everyone,I bought a brand new lenovo y700 last month and really like it. However, one problem that I am experiencing with this notebook, as well as my old lenovo z585 idea pad, is there are spikes in the dpc latency that cause audio stutter while watching youtube vidoes or listening to music. It is very frustrating and have already tried disabling some devices in an attempt to troubleshoot the issue. The issue can happen randomly, or when I intentionally put stress on the system (having 2 youtube videos open and music player on at the same time. The spikes happen in both high performance mode, albeit less frequently, and in power saving mode. 

Answer:ideapad Y700 Audio Stutter / DPC Latency

Hey! Have you found a solution to this problem? I'm having the same thing. Strangely enough, it doesn't happen if I plugin a usb mouse. Only with the elan touchpad. With the elan drivers uninstalled it doesn't spike. Think it's something wrong with the touchpad drivers.
