Lenovo Flex 4 graphics issue

Question: Lenovo Flex 4 graphics issue

I had bought Lenovo Flex 4 1580 in December 2016, Lenovo official website shows that this laptop has AMD R7 M460 Graphics Card, but my system shows AMD R7 M360 Graphics Card. Why is this showing me previous version graphics card? Will it get restrored to default if i reset my Windows 10?

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Flex 4 graphics 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.)

Hi All, I seem to be suffering the same problems as many others. I was using a second screen via a displaylink adaptor on my Flex 15 laptop up until installing Windows10.
My laptop has an intel 4400 GPU, which appears to be unsupported by Windows 10, and is stopping the displaylink adaptor from working. It refuses to accept the latest official Intel drivers, saying they are not supported by Windows 10, and for older drivers it refuses to use them, saying that WIndows has detected an error with the device and stopped it (code 43)
That was the major issue up until today, when my usb DVD drive (a Lenovo Slim USB DVD-RW) stopped working also - it has been working for the last few weeks without any problems. - Again Windows won't accept the correct drivers for the device.


Wondering if the I made a major mistake in upgrading now, especially as my opportunity to revert back to Windows 8.1 disappeared at the weekend.

Has anyone got any glimmers of hope about how/when the correct drivers will be released, and how to get the OS to accept them? Really regretting 'upgrading' to Windows10 at present...

Cheers

Rob

Answer:Lenovo Flex 15 - graphics & now DVD problems

What Intel drivers are you using? Intel claims to support the 4400 graphics:

Intel Download Center

What drivers are you trying for the DVD drive? I haven't seen an optical drive in many years that used anything other than the generic Microsoft drivers.

Hello,I bought flex 2-14 (pentium, intel vga version).Unfortunately, it has a problem with its monitor (or intel graphics adapter).The monitor works fine on generic win7/win8 driver, but as soon as I install Intel HD video driver, display stops showing anything (its on, but just black screen). It turns on only if I connect external monitor (through hdmi). As soon as I disconnect ext.monitor, then flex monitor goes black.If I disable Intel HD video adapter, then the monitor starts working fine again.This happens both in the original Windows 8.1 (in factory version and in after hundreds of updates to this day) and in Windows 7 (fully updated). I tried video drivers from lenovo support system and through Windows Update system (they have different versions), but it does not change anything.If I connect ext.monitor, uninstall Intel video drivers and then install them again, then Windows and Intel software sees both monitors (external and internal). I can disconnect ext.monitor and then everything is displayed properly in the internal monitor... until I restart the computer. It seems like Windows or Intel HD drivers forget that there is internal monitor. Is there anything I can do?

I recently updated to the Windwos 10 Fall Creators update (Build 1709, 16299.125), and as soon as I updated, the graphics driver failed and switched to the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter. I tried updating and rolling back the driver without success. My driver right now is at the latest version (10.18.10.4358). I already tried fixing this issue with Microsoft support but they couldn't find any solutions. Microsoft Support Link: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/intel-hd-graphics-not-working-...

Hello,I have been facing a problem with my Flex 2 15 after windows 10 home upgrade.I've set the power options to do nothing when I close the lid, sometimes I close the lid and open it to find the machine shut down. This doesn't happen everytime though. Has anyone else had this problem before? Edit: I also noticed that after I start the laptop again, the battery conservation mode is disabled -which I normaly keep on all the time-, could this be related to the issue? Edit 2: I noticed that this happens in conservation mode -since the battery is not charging- and when I press a certain area under the laptop. I guess it's a loose battery. Is this common in this model? Edit 3: It's not a power issue. whenever a certain area right under the ventillation opennings below is pressed the laptop goes off. Any body ever experienced this?

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. I also noticed that there is some sort of unusual color shift on the lower left part of the screen where an rgb(0,0,0) still display a different color other than black.

To whom it may concern,
I have a Lenovo Flex 2-14, and had problems with Lenovo Transition after I had upgraded my operating system to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1.
Simply, Lenovo Transition stopped working in stand and tent modes.
Here is how I have fixed the problem.
Step-1: Uninstall Lenovo Transition and reboot your laptop.
Step-2: Install Lenovo Transition 2.1  from http://lenovo.support.com/tr/tr/downloads/ds101908
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.
I hope this helps.

I accidentally deleted my nvidia graphics drivers, and the latest version doesnt work. Knowing the drivers which came with the computer will let me re install them. Thanks.

Answer:Lenovo flex 3 1580 Nvidia graphics drivers fabric version

You might check to see if the earlier drivers are still present on your system by doing the following Right-click on StartSelect Device ManagerLeft-click on Display Adapters to expand.Right-click on your display adapter, and select Update DriverSelect "Browse my computer for driver software"Select "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer"This should provide a list of drivers previously installed on your systemTo switch to one of them, choose an older driver and click Next.It would be hard to know exactly what driver was installed when your system was new, because Lenovo does not provide release notes for its drivers as its certifies them, but older drivers for the Nvidia 940M card should be available from Nvidia, as well as newer driver versions that those release by Lenovo that may resolve your problem. which can be found here https://www.geforce.com/drivers Good Luck,

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

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.

Hi, I recently purchased a refurb Lenovo Flex 3 1480 model and I am starting to see problems with the display that others have noted on here.  It sometimes flickers on and off and occassionally completely turns off and will not come back on without a restart.   So in troubleshooting this issue I have upgraded my BIOS to version DCN32WW from DCN28WW.  This was more difficult than it sounds because for some reason the PC identified the older DCN28WW as the newer firmware.  I had to override the setting in the BIOS to allow it to install the "older"firmware DCN32WW.  Made no sense. The latest thing I am trying to do is update the Intel VGA 520 display driver to the latest version published on 7/16/16 ver. 20.19.15.4454.  I downloaded the installer from the Flex 3 1480 section of the suppport site. When I try to install it, however, it tells me it is not compatible with my device.  I have tried uninstalling the driver and then installing the newest one and it still won't install.  The driver currently on my machine is 20.19.15.4364.  Can someone explain why I cannot get the newest display driver to install on my laptop?

Hi all,
 
i just purchased a new Lenovo Flex 2-15D Laptop for my Child.
 
I just started it an on the right side of the screen there are some points on the screen where the screen is brighter flickering. It looks as the screen is registering input touches, even if there are none.
 
In fact, working with the device is only possible if i'm switching thr touch device off in the Device manager in windows, otherwise the lapttop closes windows and is doing some other nonsense.
 
The same trouble comes up after upgrading on windows 10.
 
Is there anyone could help with tht issue, please?
 
Thank you very much indeed!

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...

There are 2 available.1) Intel ME Driver 63.6 MB Windows 10 (64-bit) 11.0.0.1176 - Release 30/8/20162) Intel Management Engine Interface Driver 81.5 MB Windows 10 (64-bit) 11.6.0.1015 - Release 29/11/20163) Both drivers, in release date/version ascending order.

Hello, I have had my Lenovo Flex 4-1470 laptop for about half a year now, have always taken careful precaution when carrying it, etc. Recently, Upon touching the touchscreen on the right side and bottom of the screen, I am experiencing these "ghost" or "phantom" touches where I touch that part of the screen and it presses on a random part of the screen. The middle and left sides of the screen do not seem to be affected, however, the top of the screen seems to refuse to calibrate to my finger correctly despite calibrating the screen many times. I have updated the touchscreen driver to find that I already have the best and newest version so that cannot be my issue. I have seen that this was a common issue on the Yoga 3-14, and that there was a firmware fix to this... So far the only "fix" I have seen to this issue is disabling the touchscreen altogether, but I bought this laptop specifically for the touchscreen capabilities. I have not physically damaged the laptop, so I am curious on why this is happening.  Is there a firmware fix or something to that extent or will I have to send the laptop to Lenovo and get it repaired? Any Help would be appreciated --Kaitlyn

Answer:Lenovo Flex 4-1470 Auto touch/Ghost touches issue

Hi there, Kaitlyn         -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Ghost touches on the screen are most of the time caused by a faulty digitizer (this is the touch screen panel that enables touchscreen functionality) or the Touch panel module (LED panel w/ Touch).
 
Can you try the following? 
 

Under theDevice Manager> Human Interface Devices, can you do a right click and disable on anything that says HID-compliant device (this is the driver that controls the touchscreen). 

 

When finished, reboot the system and observe if you still get the same issue.

 
Update us how it goes.

Hey guys. I've had this laptop for about 2 years now, and at first it ran pretty much any game on high settings. Then one day my framerate dropped off out of the blue. Games I used to play on High (Star Wars The Old Republic, and Minecraft) I'd get a solid 50-60fps. Now I'm lucky if I get 10fps. Even League Of Legends, which isnt so graphic intensive, only runs at about 25fps. What's the deall? I've tried updated drivers, direct x, and whatever else needed to keep my system current. I've tried both methods of switchable graphics. No change. What's even weirder is that sometimes while trying to play swtor my card seems to "wake up" and runs smooth as silk. Perfect framerate, looks great....then back down to horrible. Any suggestions of what I might be able to try or what the issue could be? As far as I can remember this happend overnight without any warning signs.

Hi
 
Welcome To Lenovo Community
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing,  
Based from what i read in your post, seems like the setting needs to be verified under bios  and the switchable graphics  hardware switch need to be changed in windows mode to use Nvdia graphics
Please try to go into the BIOS and double check the Graphics have been set to the correct settings .
I.e. Optimus  or switchable , Save and restart the system , Under windows press the switchable graphics  hardware switch  then check under device manager if two graphics cards are listed . Then try to run the game .
 
 
 
Do give this a try and let us know  
 
 
 
Hope This Helps
Cheers!!!

Hello, I recently got a Lenovo G580 that has Intel HD Graphics in it. I sent a message to Intel about the issue and they said that the graphics card that came with this computer has 1.7GB of VRAM. They said to ask Lenovo here if they limited it. I was wanting to know that and how I can fix it. How can I allow my computer to be less choppy when playing games? I need the answer. If I can't fix it, would it be efficient to buy a 2GB PNY graphics card? The one that I was looking at is here: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/PNY+-+GeForce+GT+630+Graphic+Card+-+780+MHz+Core+-+2+GB+DDR3+SDRAM+-+PCI.... Would this be logical?

Answer:Lenovo G580 Graphics Issue

hi r3cebarnett
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
The Intel HD Graphics you have has no limitation attached on it, in fact If your system has the
Intel Core i5-3210M processor (2 cores / 4 threads, 2.50GHz, 3MB cache)
Intel Core i5-3230M processor (2 cores / 4 threads, 2.60GHz, 3MB cache)
Your system is capable of Turbo Boost which Improves the Performance by automatically adjusting the Clock speed of your Processor
 
But for High Quality Graphics Games Like BF3 or games a like it will really have a hard time rendering because of The games GPU Requirement
You can try what's on this Post to somehow improve it
http://www.pvladov.com/2013/01/improve-intel-hd-graphics-performance.html
 
- the GPU you posted from Bestbuy will not work because it is meant for Desktop
Laptops are very limited when it come to GPU Upgrades.

Hello, so about 4, maybe 5 years ago I bought a Y530 and its still in great condition besides missing 1 key that I popped off cause some kid knocked chips under the keyboard and I thought I could pop it back on like my last computer. The issue I'm having is whenever I run a 3d game, or sometimes watching a video (usually online ones cause it), after about 5 minutes it starts to lag heavily. What I mean is everything runs in slow motion (literally when I watch a video, the sound comes out like it does in slo-mo videos) and when I'm playing a game it just drops to maybe 1 frame per second. This lasts about 1-2 minutes every time, and during that time nothing in the game happens responsively. The odd thing is if I alt tab outta a game that's lagging like this, I can continue to use chrome, and move the mouse normally. It almost feels like the computer just decides to forget it has a 512 mb graphics card, and 4 gbs of ram, and then after the 1-2 minutes are over (it varies) the game/video will start to run at normal speed for another 5 minutes~. I'm not currently in the USA, but when I get back I'm going to reinstall windows and see if that does anything, but I was hoping someone here would have a solution for it. Thanks for reading.

Answer:Lenovo g500 graphics card issue

hi kiranhaardy,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
From your description, it seems like there's a problem with the GPU.
 
To check, can you run OCCT and run a GPU Stress Test / Video Memory Test or run a Lenovo Video Test (see Quick Tests).
 
Guide:
How to Test NVIDIA/AMD Performance with OCCT
 
If you get errors, you may need to contact lenovo for service.

Answer:Lenovo G570 Graphics drivers issue

hi aadishivan,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
 
On this Screen shot the you provided

 
It is saying "Standard VGA Adapter"
I think that the system is not taking the drivers that's why your getting minimal performance from the Graphics Adapter.
 
Can you shar a screenshot of your Device Manager with the Display adapter open,
Also Get the Hardware Id of the Display adapter device under Device Manager as well
Because it may be that the Graphics you have is not an Intel but an AMD which this driver should work
 AMD Video Driver  
 
 
Best Regards

Hi. I bought a Lenovo G510 last year without a pre-installed windows, so I gave it to a specialist in my town and he set it up for me with windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. It worked perfectly fine until I decided to upgrade it myself to windows 8.1 pro. I could play every possible game almost perfectly until i installed this **bleep** windows. Now my dedicated AMD Radeon HD 8750M is not detected by any game (i tried to play call of duty advanced warfare 2 multiplayer, i went to advanced video settings and it only showed me Intel HD Graphics 4600 and microsoft render device or whatever ). I searched through the forum and i saw this topic where a guy said I should uninstall the drivers and install them back again. I did so and it still doesnt show me the dedicated video card. Please help me i cant even play cs 1.6 in 100 fps

Answer:G50-70 - issue regarding amd r5 m230 graphics card 2gb on lenovo g50-70

hi Ashish1793,
 
If you're running on Windows 7 64bit, can you consider the following:
1. Navugate to the Control Panel (icon views) > Display Adapters and uninstall both the Intel and AMD Display driver then reboot.
2. Install the Intel Display Driver first then reboot.
3. Install the AMD Dislpay Driver (the files will be extracted drivers to the C:\Drivers\VGA folder - overwrite if prompted and reboot if necessary)
 
When finished,  you should now have both the Intel HD Graphics 4600 and AMD R5 M230 in the Device Manager > Display Adapters
 
If you get a Code 43 error on the AMD Display Device Manager, try to install the AMD R5 M230 driver directly from AMD website and observe.
 
If you have Windows 8.1, download the Intel and AMD Display driver from the G50-70 drivers page and install them respectively.

I reccomended the Lenovo Yoga 13 to my sister. Everything was working fine and I thought I made a good reccomendation. However, yestertay I borrowed it in order to watch a BluRay on an external Screen and connected the Yoga via HDMI. However, after 15min the following happened.
I forced a hard reboot. After 5 minutes it happened again. Anyone any idea what could be the cause of this? Hardware related? Software related?

Greetings, I have some problems with the performance of my Lenovo g570 (with Radeon HD6370M graphics card) while playing video games, While I understand that this is NOT a super gaming machine, games that should be easily playable (games where I pass the recommended system requirements easily) are unplayable (3-5 FPS) at the lowest settings. I think the system (WIN7 64bit) has trouble recognizing the graphics card even when the switchable graphics are switched to high performance, as the performance in games is exactly the same when I play with the graphics card "on" or "off".Another thing that leads me to believe there is a problem is also that my OS while assessing the performance of the system gives me a low score because it doesn't recognize me having a graphics card at all.All my drivers are up to date and I would like to know how to fix this problem or atleast how to find the reason for this lack of performance. Cheers and thanks in advance

Greetings, I have currently installd a fresh version of windows 7 professional onto a lenovo aio A700. After doing all the updates for the operating system as well as reinstalling the drivers using the disk that came with the pc. I have since done updates to those drivers. Basically I have installed and reinstalled them a few times now trying to resolve the issue that the PC continues to freeze when adjusting any graphic settings as well as just having the pc promt me for the admin password. The freeze will take place when trying to change background both in aero and basic themes. The changes ultimately process but the PC is unresponsive for an average of 5minutes while it resolves itself.  The drivers used were on the driver disk and also those provided on the lenovo site and on the intel site as of today 12/14/16 Aside from that issue the PC is perfect in how the rest of it works. If any one has any solutions thank you!

Hello all, Im experiencing an issue with my quadro card specifically. It seems like within the last week or two most apps that I have associated with the quadro specifically do not start and just hang, not responding. Additionally, though maybe unrelatedly, the lock screen occasionally freezes and does not come into focus. Other times the screensaver tries to load a slideshow, but ultimately fails to show anything until I click on somewhere and it flashes by briefly before returning to the login prompt. According to the "solution center", the GPU is functioning and passes the tests with green. I have disabled the usual windows update cycle and only update manually occasionally, the most recent being within a month of these issues beginning. The following may be unrelated: I did recently install Duet so I can use an Apple tablet as a mobile second screen, which is when I first noticed something potentially wrong, but possibly it was wrong before that. After installing that program I noticed flickering on Chrome while scrolling, which I had to solve by disabling hardware accelleration in the flags. The following programs were tested for this issue and work fine with the intel integrated graphics:Visual Studio CodeSpace EngineersPhotoshop (CS5 and CC)I tried a few others, but I tried these multiple times. I attempted the following:Updating graphics drivers (from both lenovo and nvidia driver sites)Rolling back to previously working drivers (no effect)Del...

Ok, so I just received my new Lenovo Ideapad Z560 in the mail about a week ago. I have been enjoying it up until I realized it seemed to have an issue with some graphics. Every time I watch this youtube video that works normally for everyone else, instead of seeing normal video images like everyone else, I see things like these images:http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/139/youtubeproblem.png It does it on other youtube videos as well. Anyways, it does this not only for this youtube video but also did it three times (it turned green, blocky, and pixelated) while watching Teen Mom 2 on MTV.com. So I'm thinking it's a graphics card issue...or is there anything anyone can suggest to fix it? I already went to device manager and tried updating the drivers. It said they were all updated. Btw, I have Windows 7 Premium, 64 bit. Intel Core i5 2.53 GHz, 4 GB RAM, and Intel HD Graphics. Thank you!

  locked on the Intel Motherboard and unable to switch to ATI Radeon 3650 My W500 is locked into the motherboard Intel graphics card and I want to switch it to the ATI Radeon HD 3650 chip/ card. I want to switch the graphics drivers to the ATI Radeon drivers and chipsets /video card. My Catalyst Controll Center drivers are installed but they won't load because another driver or application or system is blocking them. I do not know which is the case because the error message is incomplete and I can not read the complete message.. I am also mystified because the product I purchased from Lenovo was a W500 with the ATI FirePro V5700 card (512 MB of VRAM). I used to see this card in my device driver when I first used the PC. But since last November the Device Manager has declaimed that the card is an HD 3650 card. I've made no physical change in the system. Also, the little green battery icon system that used to reside in the TASKBAR haqs disappeared. I don't understand where this icon went to and why did it go? I need help in restoring this icon to my taskbar. My current ATI Radeon driver inforce is: ATI Radeon HD 3650, Driver version: 8.051.0.0, effective 6/02/2008 Thank you. BEK477.

Answer:Lenovo W500 Issue. Switchable graphics feature

How should one go about determining that the video card is properly installed and working? I am assuming that the ATI Radeon HD 3650 or FirePro V5700 card is installed but how can I tell. Is there a way to open the back of the laptop W500 and to visually confirm that the video card is properly installed in the motherboard. I am refering to the idea that the card has been disconnected from the motherboard. I recall that the Lenovo support site had a schematic diagram of the video card's installation but I can not find it today. Does anyone have any idea as to how I can confirm the that the video card is plugged in and working?

Hi Guys, I am having an issue with my Lenovo Y580 Graphics card!Here's how all the trouble began...I was fiddling around in my main drive's program files (86) folder. I was trying to free up some space on my tiny 32GB SSD Hard drive.I erased some Nvidia files from the Nvidia folder. While trying to reinstall the latest drivers from the Nvidia Website, the screen turns black right in the middle of the installation!Thinking that this was a normal black out for Nvidia driver installation, It just stayed black! I waited for about 5 to 10 minutes before I did a Hard reboot.Upon doing so I landed on the desktop again to reinstall the latest driver (331.82) and It does it's thing. It tells me to restart, I restart. Now, when I reach the windows logo sign, it dances for a bit, then stops all of a sudden: A Freeze! I repeat the process and its the same over and over. I get into safe mode, and remove the drivers with a Display Driver Uninstaller software. I try to reinstall the drivers same thing happens.When I try to reinstall the latest drivers from the Lenovo website, this time I get a Blue Screen!! Error codes (0x0000007E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0X0000000000000000, 0XFFFFF880033C40A8, 0XFFFFF880033C3900). I believe the 0x07E is a hardware issue with displays (so I read), and the other I have no clue about.End game!I do a fresh install of windows 7 64-bit trying to reinstall the drivers once more same issue....The only way I can gain access to the desktop is by disabling the GTX ...

Answer:Lenovo Y580 GTX 660m Graphics Driver Issue!?

IMO you have a hardware issue... If you look around you'll see you're not the only one with problems with this laptop. It seems like those GPUs are extremely prone to failure. I have similar issue, but more like in this topic:http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/y580-GT660m-blue-screen-when-launching-gpu-...Mine usually just froze or BSODed few minutes after starting an app using Nvidia GPU (usually games of course) or few seconds after desktop appeared. Sometimes Windows manages to recover withour crashing, but my GPU is not available until I do a restart. Same when it crashes. Lately the problem seems to disappeared by itself. How? No idea.If your computer is not on warranty anymore I'd recommend trying unlocked BIOS with increased voltage and clocks. It does sound strange, but I'm running it now with such BIOS and it's running better than ever.

hi WillMiller70,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you weren't able to capture the Bluescreen error (BSOD), can you try these steps:
1. Follow this guide on how to disable automatic restart on system failure (this should make the computer stay on the BSOD error which allows you to capture the error messages).
 
2. Upload the Bluescreen error (dump) files located at C:\Windows\minidump online (e.g., Google Drive) for analysis.
 
In addition, consider also the following:
3. Update the display driver 
AMD Driver (VGA, HDAudio, SATA) for Windows 8.1 (64-bit) - Lenovo G40-45, G50-45
 
4. Run a diagnostic scan on the GPU using the utility below and post the resut here.
 
Lenovo Individual Diagnostic (see Video Test)
 
 
 
 
Let me know how it goes.

I've been using conservation mode for my new (1 month) lenovo laptop every time I put the AC adapter in it. I thought that this was going to help me endure my battery life, but in the end I've stacked with the fact, that battery's stamina went much more lower. For example, I could use my laptop in a battery economy mode/conservation turned off for 5-6 hours, now it barely lasts 3 hrs with the same settings and the same pattern of usage. Just for record, 21 minute of watching a film costs my battery from 10-20% now, while before it was not an issue at all, I hardly can tell that it drained me more than 5%. Also, right now, while typing this, I've noticed, that behaviour of my percentage bar is also really strange: first it shows 75%, then, after 5 minutes, it showes 73%, without getting through 74%. And as a one big plus to that, my battery status says that my battery is normal, just normal, while before it was great or something like that. I find it strange because it is 1 month old notebook, as I mentioned earlyer. Now I am trying to recalibrate my battery, for the 3d time, hoping it would help me, but I really wish to hear your opinion about that, maybe there is something that I don't know about, something that can help me. P.S. It is 70% now, gezus

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad Z470 switchable graphics display(flickering) issue

Does moving the hinge have any affect on screen issues? Maybe a pinched monitor cable? Have you tried using an extrnal monitor via vga or hdmi? Seems if its an issue with the motherboard/gpu you'd get similar problems externally. Also you mention switchable graphics, can you test integrated and dedicated solutions seperately by changing bios settings?

Right, you mentioned it turned blue with a sad face, that is a Blue Screen of Death (or proper term is Kernel bugcheck) which indicates something has gone wrong.

Then I tried just to use the flatscreen as the first output. Because of that, I don't get any picture any more, because the laptop tries to use the output as my first screen, but there, I don't get any picture. I already tried different HDMI cables.I use the latest drivers (Windows says 10.18.10.3621). The Intel download page for new drivers for this chipset isn't working too.Thanks a lot for help!

Hi. I currently own a Ideapad Flex 14 Notebook and i mostly use it to play Videogames. However i was wondering if there is a way to improve the Performance of Inte HD Graphics since Flex Series usualy dont have a seperate Graphic-Card inclusive.I guess i need to upgrade my CPU Hardware but im not sure which one could give me a better ( or best ) Performance compared to my current one  ( Intel Core i5 4200U CPU ).Or is there a way to get a really tiny Graphic Card, since Flex Series are really thin and i actually dont see Space for some additional stuff :^).However my big Question is:New CPU? If yes: Which one ( should provide best Performance for Videogames ).Side Question is:Is there a Graphic Card out there that fits into the thin Case of the Flex Series? If yes: Whats the Name of it

Question: lenovo flex 2

Is there anyway in Windows 8.1 to enlarge the text over all applicatinos and programs? I checked the MS support and it sais to go to Display and select one of Small, medium or large, but these options were not available.

Answer:lenovo flex 2

hello. pc settings also has under ease of access a selection to make things bigger rocker switch. trial that too. here found link to all display properties dialogue.  you were there. seems like check that box for ALL displays will show what you wish to set. Windows logo key+P. resolution is the whole screen change.  dpi scaling is the whole screen change. or at the lower display properties box is text only (by item, very handy) http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/28310-dpi-scaling-size-change-displays-windows-8-1-a.html

Hi,I just received my Lenovo Flex 20 today and i was very dissapointed to find out that wireless display was not supported. I thought it will be compatible as i checked the Graphics card and processor prior of buying it but unfortunately it doesnt have a compatible wireless card. I really need widi for my job as i want to present everything wirelessly on another compatible WIDI TV . I was wondering whether if i buy The INTEL 7260AC wireless card and upgrade the system if i will be able to use widi. Will the system accept this wireless card? And if yes will i then just be able to install WI-DI software and make it functional? I just wanted to add that i already tried another 2 x card (which i took out from my laptop - A Railink card made in 2010 and from an old HP MINI netbook - A Broadcom card) and they had been accepted by the lenovo flex 20. What are your thoughts then? Will INTEL 7260AC be accepted by Lenovo Flex 20? If yes will this be enough to enable widi after installing appropriate software? Thanks for your kind help!

Answer:LENOVO FLEX 20 WI-DI

Hi BLueArMy, welcome to the forum!
 
     I don't know if you can install a Intel 7260AC wireless card in your Flex, however: if you are running Win 8.1 (update 1) you shouldn't need to upgrade the card. Win 8.1 has the ability to use Miracast, to wirelessly connect to your compatible TV.
 
     I have the Lenovo A520, with a Realtek RTL8188CUS Wireless card, and it connects well with my Belkin SreenCast F7D4501 unit. I bought the Belkin ScreenCast to connect, via WiDi, my Y470 with Win 7. After I received the A520, and updated the  Win 8, to Win 8.1, I noticed that I had the "Connect To Another Wireless Device" in the charm bar Devices display. Just make sure you have the WiDi unit (or the setting in your TV) turned on, and the TV input is selected.
 
     It may take you a little tweaking to get it all set up. IIRC on the first setup, my A520 needed to download some Windows updates during the process. After that, all of the remote display settings are under the Intel HD Graphics manager.
 
     Let us all know how it goes.
 
Cheers

Question: Lenovo Flex 10

Problem: Press power button, turns on and no display. Press power button to turn off then press to turn on, doesn't turn on but power button light is flashing. Plug in the charger and turn the Flex 10 off and on again, still not on. Tapping the keyboard, touchpad hoping something happens, no. Give it a couple more seconds then it turns on. Lenovo loading sign comes up then goes to blue screen saying "collecting data because there was an error then will restart for you", restarts. "There was an error with loading Windows. Given two options; option 1: Choose a recovery setting or option 2: restart". Both options have been clicked before and nothing has happened. This time tried choosing option 1 again and the screen starts flickering and Flex 10 turns off. Flex 10 has been opened from the back to check if memory, HDD and all else is correctly in place.  Any solutions? Could the battery be the problem?Is it worth replacing it altogether? Thanks,Scott

Replacing is not that easys as with other laptops / tablett, as there are no service doors on the back. You might need to take off the whole back plate with '1000's of screws ;-)( But there is a related service manual around ).ref. to warranty it might depend on local rules, get them a call to verifiy

Earlier today I booted up my computer and noticed the Nvidia control panel wasn't an option on the right click context menu. After going to services.msc, I noticed the Nvidia display driver service wasn't running, and if I tried to start it, it would immediately crash. I then went to device manager, and saw that under Display Adapters, the only visible one was Intel Integrated Graphics. I wiped the Nvidia drivers, and when I tried installing the latest ones I was told that "This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware." I've already tried resetting BIOS, which did nothing. My concern here is that either the graphics card has died, or it has been shaken out of place somehow. Are there any suggestions you can offer to fix this, or will I have to take apart the laptop? Thanks for your help.Specs: CPU: Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-4200U @ 1.60GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHzRAM: 4GB (4096 MB)GPU: Intel Integrated Graphics (Onboard), Nvidia Geforce GT 720M (Discrete)Model: Lenovo Flex 14

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to read this.I got a Lenovo Flex 2 15 a while ago. Over these three months I've tried to find information wether this laptop supports a stylus to draw with to begin with, and which models would those be.After searching in forums, sent pms to Lenovo support via Facebook and being utterly ignored, contacting support of styluses makers (Adonit for example) I always get the same copy pasted get X stylus for Ipad and X for *other lenovo models, like Yoga700, etc* which do not seem to list my model among them. Perhaps it is because of the year or because Lenovo Flex 2 is not being made anymore, which I noticed after getting it, sadly. So I ask once again... perhaps this time someone will know! Does the Lenovo Flex 2 15 support Wacom or any other brand styluses to draw on the screen with? If so, which is the model I should go for? Thank you again for any answer that you could provide.

It doesn't support Wacom digitizers, but you can get a capacitive stylus and that'll work.

Does anyone have a Lenovo - Flex 4 1470? (Win10/64bit) I bought mine in July 2016 and yesterday when I signed on I got a pop-up from Lenovo telling me about a "critical" Lenovo update. I am pretty sure if was referring to BIOS update = v.0vcn.22ww / 120 MB.
I clicked for it to install and then another pop-up saying something about it (possibly) changing binaries, etc. I didn't know what that was all about and so I cancelled the downlod.
Today I phoned Lenovo and spoke to a woman who said "they" didn't recommend downloading/installing updates to BIOS unless I was having problem with this laptop.
As I asked, does anyone else have a Lenovo Flex 4.1470? If so, did you get this critical update notice and if you did, did you install it?
I am 81 years old and know nothing about these things and wonder if I should just forget about downloading the BIOS update? Or whether it MUST be downloaded for this Lenovo to operate properly.
Thanks for any help.

The other day my lenovo flex 2.14 (running on windows 10) went into what I can only assume was sleep mode: the power light was flashing (which the usermanuel says indicates sleep mode). I read somewhere that taking the battery out and holding the power button for 30 seconds would help (something to do with draining charge or something). I couldn't get access ot the battery as I didn't  have any screws so I took the charger out and tried the same thing, put the charge back in and hey presto it seemed to work. - Then the same thing happened again a few days later, but the same solution didn't seem to work. This time I managed to take the back off - but then didn't know where the battery was. I carried on pressing the power button and disconnected any wires that I could see (turns out these were the ones to the wireless card) and reconnected them. At some point the sleep button turned off and wouldn't turn on again, at this point I put the charger back in and the computer started working again. - Then , a few days later, the same thing happened AGAIN, this time I worked out where the battery, but couldn't work out how to disconnect it. While I was fiddling with it trying work out how to do so (I should point out that I never managed to disconnect it) the sleep light turned off and wouldn't turn on again.
