Lenovo Flex 15 - graphics & now DVD problems

Question: Lenovo Flex 15 - graphics & now DVD problems

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

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.

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.

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-...

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've noticed for some time that my relatively new ~1 year Lenovo Flex 4 yoga, which has switchable graphics, has been running slower.  For instance, VLC has been unable to run certain movies, and running gameshow to record my powerpoint talks now leads to freezing and inability to save movies.  I finally found some free time to try a very basic 3D game (broforce, the overworld, 2 seconds into the game), and then my computer instantly slowed and shut itself off.  I downloaded the Heaven Benchmark 4.0 and the same issue occured, it barely rendered graphics and then froze.  I have all of the latest drivers and updates installed via a clean install.   Put simply, my computer is now completely unable to perform the most basic tasks that seem to be gpu related without slowing to a crawl and shutting itself off.  This includes very old games, new games, benchmarks, and even python rendering medium to large images.   Please please advise some tests I can do to see if this is a software issue.  I work a very very very hard job and this computer is my lifeline, and I need it not to have this issue.

I see that the AMD driver is indeed being used for broforce and for the horizon test, and that the GPU usage shoots to 100% and the gpu gets to over 100C instantly (within 5 seconds).   Hardware or software issue, thoughts?

Hi,I have bought a Lenovo Flex 14 a few month ago - and I'm starting to REALLY HATE it! - Wifi collapses at high speed and needs to be reconnected -> I had to buy a usb wifi dongle to repair this- USB 3.0 does not work: When I connect a USB 3.0 device it does not show up. I've tried this with different USB 3.0 HDD.- Driver Power State Bluescreens at least every 14 days I thought maybe this a driver issue, so I reinstalled them all. Helped nothingNow I was trying to reinstall Windows 8, just in case it is a software issue. -> Great! No product key, no manual of how to download and install windows 8.And on top of it all, there is not even a real Support Team, I can write an email to? **bleep** Lenovo! What were you thinking? Please tell me you can at least solve some of the issues, because backing up all my data and sending it back to amazon ist a lot of work...

I bought my flex 3 14" just over a year ago. A few month before my warranty expired, the battery stopped working. It would not charge past 0%. I had to have it pulgged in in order to be able to use it, but as soon as I unplugged it, it would die. I sent the computer into the lenovo shop to be repaired, and when it came back the battery was working... for 24 hours. Now my computer has trouble charging up. It stays at it's current battery level. Also, it will charge for half a second, not charge, charge, not charge. This causes my brightness to go up and down. Unfortunately, my warranty has expired, so I can't send it again (idk if you even can do that). The only thing that I could think of that might be causing this is some damage to the wire. Right where the wire leaves the AC adapter and heads towards the laptops there is some fraying in the rubber casing around the wire and I can feel the wire itself. I don't want to buy a new charge just to find that the charger wasn't the problem. Please help.

Answer:Lenovo flex 3 14" battery problems

Hello Finn3Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Are you able to try to charge with an alternate charger, sounds like it might be just a faulty charger at this point.
 
Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)1. Turn the unit off2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter5. Turn the unit on as normal

HI,So I got a Flex 2 15 for Christmas 2014, after about a year the display would sometimes flicker with a red tint and the image would look like it had burn-in. If I closed the lid and opened it back it would go away.Last week the same thing happened but this time its permanent. My display is stuck with this red tint and screen burn in.I tried support but as my luck would have it its out of warranty. I youtubed how to do a disassembly to get to the LCD connector to see if it was a loose connector but it wasn't. Is there any fix for this short of replacing it?Any help would be appreciated.Thanks. Attached is a photo of what I'm experiencing.

I did this stupid mistake and paid a load of money for a worthless pc - lenovo flex 15 (where lenovo is the key word).
Now I need some help to contain the problem.
First - is there ANY way I can improve on Wi-Fi connectivity? beside the low performance (low speed) it also stop working every 5 or 10 minutes. I have to disable and enable adapter in order to get internet access again.
Second - when I plug the audio jack the POS shoots down (like pressing power on button once).
 
Note 1: I went to service with it and they told me I lost warranty since they found some missing (!) screws inside! The POS was 2 weeks old (after purchasing) and NEVER opened by NO ONE after taking out of the box! And the box was sealed.
 
Note 2: on my invoice it says core I5 inside and the price is for an I5 based pc. On the board (the label on the POS is CORE I7. The explanations I get from service: some analphabetic chinese must be mistaken - they couldn?t read.

I have had my lenovo flex 4 1580 for less than a year, and while I love it there seem to be problems. And I am a law student so this is causing me a lot of anxiety. In the last few weeks the computer has started to freeze, and requires me to physically press the power button to restart it. I have tried a system recovery before the installation of windows 10 creative, I have tried unistalling/reinstalling java, I continue to check my system for updates. I have disabled the background apps. I am not running alot just mozillafoxfire, microsoft word, spotity (maybe), google chrome, and that is about it. And yet the CPU and or memory will  just shoot through the roof and it will freeze. It feels like there is some big program running in the backgroud but I have checked the task master and I do not know what it is..... Now it says that the computer is plugged in and it is not charging...I have checked the conservation mode is off, I tried the settings airplane mode is off,  I do not see any other other problems...am I missing something. I am hoping that these problems can be fixed, quickly,

Hello,One month ago, i bought a lenovo flex 3 1470 (8GB ram, I5-6200), it came with WIN 10 righ out of the box.Since than, im having some trouble with part of the laptop capabilities. First of all - the WIFI:For some reason, once a while, the wifi connection disappeared and than i cant get no signal from any network around me.After that happens, i look into the device manager and i cant see the WIFI adapter no more.Usually restart the laptop solve the problem, but that not a solution.Second, is the pc performance.For a notebook with 8 gb of ram and a brand new i5 processor (6 generation) it runs so slow!More than 2 minutes startup, having a restart or shut down will take much more than than.It's important to say that there's almost nothing intalled on it.The last problem which i saw twice, it that the laptop just turn on by it self without me pressing anything.I've tried running a diagnostic utility from the lenovo support web, didn't find anything special / not functioning.Please help me, this is my work laptop and so far i'm very disappointed with it.

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

Hi, i'm having a problem with a B50-30 aio that wont recognize the Nvidia 840A in programs such as AutoCAD 2017. The integrated intel GPU cant be disabled through the BIOS in that particular model, so no luck with that method. Both cards are detected correctly in the device manager. I already tried disabling the igpu in the device manager.Setting the particular program to default to the Nvidia GPU in the nvidia control panel.Setting the 840A as global GPU with all programs.Uninstalling and reinstalling both the igpu and the nvidia gpu drivers, both the factory ones for Win10 and the latest ones. I'm running out of ideas over here, the nvidia gpu used to run fine and be detected with AutoCAD 2015 and windows 7, but i had to wipe the install and upgrade to Win10 due to other problems introduced when the previous user downgraded the computer to windows 7. I was thinking maybe a ACPI driver is missing but no luck finding something like that for that particular machine. No such thing as nvidia optimus either in the drivers. Anyone might have an idea what could be missing? I haven't tried downgrading to AutoCAD 2015 but it would seem weird for 2015 to detect the gpu and not 2017.

Hi there.So I'm having a problem with my graphics card. I am using the recommended settings for games such as League of Legends and Diablo 3 which are well within the abilities of my Y570. I have the nvidia graphics card switch turned on and in the nvidia control panel i have it set to use the nvidia graphics card. I have the fan turned onto thethermal heat disappation setting.   However every so often I get a massive drop in FPS for around 30s (from 80fps down to 5 or so).I guessed it may be a heat problem, so having cleaned the fan, it improved slightly. Although I then discovered it is not my Nvidia GPU that is hot, it is the intel on board GPU (around 85*C) while the nvidia is only at 45-50*C. (Information from GPU-Z program).I therefore would like to ask, if anyone has any suggestions as to why my nvidia graphics card appears to not be enabled?Thanks very muchMax

At first I tried downloading the drivers from the lenovo support page (both intel and nvidia driver). When I tried installing the intel driver a message came up saying "this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software". It was the same story with the nvidia driver, but the message was shown in the nvidia installation and worded differently. I then tried installing drivers from nvidia and intel themselves by downloading the lastest drivers and I still had the same problem. I'm currently running on the standard VGA adapter. Help would be great!

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.

Graphics display problems Lenovo G50 AMD A6 Win 8.1 Greetings to all. After having spent a number of days trying to find a solution to a display problem, I turn to this forum for help. I own a Lenovo G50 AMD A6 Win 8.1 ever since November 2014, and have had display problems ever since the first day, be it while using internet (Firefox or Explorer) or various software (Text editors, etc.). Many dialog boxes, including colour settings and controls (open, close etc.) either have an inappropriate appearance or even do not appear at all! I manage to "click" on the right places using memory: most areas are INVISIBLE! Another example would be that I do not see any backround colour or image on most webpages such as this one).  Some suggestions included checking for graphics updates (but the drivers used were already up-to-date).  I 'd be most obliged for any new suggestions. Thank you very much. George

Answer:Graphics display problems (dialog boxes) Lenovo G50 AMD A6 Win 8.1

Hi Gkm,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with dialog box not visible in your Lenovo G50 laptop.
 
As you have mentioned that the dialog boxes and color setting in the web browsers, please try to uninstall the firefox browser and also for the internet explorer try to clear the cache, browser history and check for the issue.
 
If still the issue persists then try to uninstall the graphic driver reboot the system and reinstall the graphic driver and check for the issue.
 
Click here for the graphic driver.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
 
Best regards,

Hi, I recently bought a Lenovo s205:AMD E-350It came with 1GB but I upgraded it to 4Gb RAM (1333 running at 1066)Windows 7 64 Ultimate.I have tried also Windows 7 32 (Professional, ultimate) and all versions give me the same problem, I will explain here:I have tried in AHCI mode and IDE mode from the bios and done fresh installs of Windows. Still the same.After installing all the drivers, I get randomly in different programs "black" or sometimes "white" menus. Whenever I set the cursor on the menu (White or black part), the letters start showing up.On Firefox for example, it happened where you write the address (Ex: www..) And when searching images too.I have tried the original drivers that the Lenovo's website has for the S205 and the latest from Ati/AMD and nothing solves the problem.What can this be? Faulty ram? Faulty OS? Problem with the graphic card drivers?Please help, it is so frustrating. Thank you so much. 

Answer:Lenovo S205 & Windows 7 64bit. Problems with graphics, please help

Hello! I think i came across a small bug. Don't know for sure which software is to blame, but i think it's the Lenovo Energy Management's  fault. I bought a lenovo g570, with intel integrated graphics driver. Installed w7 64 sp1, drivers from DVD. After a while windows update popuped with intel hd graphics new driver. After installing it, the brightness indicator (the thing that pops up when u change the brightness from the keyboard) got stuck at level 2 even if the display brightness was changing.After 2 days i changed my mind and installed w7 32 sp1  after finding out it was a bit pointless to have it these days when lots of programs are running on 32bits. The same thing happened on this windows. The brightness indicator got stuck.The mind**bleep** thing (or not) is that after reverting to the old graphics driver, everything was working ok and the brightness indicator got unstucked. 

Answer:lenovo g570 - problems after updating intel hd graphics

Yes, the drivers supplied fro Win update can cause problems.Use updated drivers from Lenovo if available.

Hi, I have a Lenovo 3000 n200 Type 0769 laptop which served me well at university with my 3D modelling in SolidWorks for my projects. However, when I tried to run games on it, the games always crash, even on a very low setting graphics setting which is extremely frustrating. The only game I have managed to run successfully with no problems is Football Manager (providing I dont use the 3d game play as when I do, like all other games I have tried, it crashes.). What do I need to upgrade to successfully run games on my laptop and also, (if it is only a new graphics card that is required) where can I find out which cards are compatible with my laptop? Running games is the only problem I am finding with the laptop and any help anyone can give me will be very much appreciated. Cheers. - Pete PS. The games I have tried running with no success include; The Sims 2, Lord Of The Rings - Battle For Middle Earth 1 & 2, Command & Conquer Generals, Command & Conquer 3 and Warhammer Dawn Of War

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

Hello!I've one question/problem: Every time I try to use a beamer, my flatscreen TV or monitor, I don't get any picture. I tried to clone the display first, but that didn't work. 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!

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?

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

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

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

HiI have a Lenovo flex 2 14 with mechanical hard drive. I bought an SSD to switch it but I encountered a problem opening the laptop.I followed the manual here:http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_flex_2_14_flex_2_14d_flex_2_15_flex_2_15d_hmm... I started by removing the keyboard, all went well.then came the part where it said to remove the optical drive, having no optical drive (14 inch don?t have it) I just skipped this part, the next part was taking off the back panel, I took all the screw off and then started peeling the panel off starting at the front. The back side of the panel didn?t seem to go out.Instead of using more pressure I stopped because i realized maybe the 14 inch version has something similar to the optical drive removal that needs to be done before the back panel removal. the manual just list the optical drive removal as a step, without any clarification about the 14 inch version. Anyone has experience with opening up the 14 version and can help?

Answer:Opening lenovo flex 2 14

Hi, I had the same problem, and I had missed one screw under the keyboard that has a lenovo sticker on. Remove the sticker and you'll find the last screw  There are 3 screws in total under the keyboard.

Not sure whats going on with the website, I entered in my serial number to make sure I was getting the specific drivers.  But nearly all the pieces of hardware have two different drivers. I havent had to download any yet so far since I havent done too much.  But, when it came down to video card drivers it listed Nvidia drivers and when I tried to install it it said that the compatible hardware was not found. Shouldnt there be only one driver? I mean.. maybe multiple versions, but they are listed completely different so I would believe they are different drivers completely.

Hi,This is my first post. I have just brought a Lenovo Flex 10 with a celeron n 2807 chip. I asked in the shop if they could do an ssd upgrade and they said they wouldn't recommend it because the celeron n2807 chip is not good enough to run an SSD internal flash drive. Would anyone recomened upgrading the interneral storage from the 5400rpm hard drive to an SSD?

Answer:Lenovo Flex 10 SSD upgrade

Pardon my lack of confidence in your shop, but that's a joke. SSDs will improve PC's right back to the beginning of the SATA offering. I have a NUC with the following Celeron:http://ark.intel.com/products/79052/Intel-Celeron-Processor-N2820-1M-Cache-up-to-2_39-GHzThere is a huge performance gain from running an SSD on these. The only factor in whether or not to get an SSD should be if the size within your budget will hold all your data.

Answer:Bluetooth on Lenovo Flex 10

hi xh28,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
I haven't seen this case on the Flex 10 but you may want to consider doing the following:
 
1. If you're trying to pair the Creative Wireless T30 speakers via Charms > PC & Devices (the Flex 10 can see the speakers butg won't connect), try to:
  - press the Windows key? +R, type control printers and press Enter. On the list of paired devices, check if you have the Creative Wireless T30 speakers on the list and remove it.
 
2. Open the Blueooth Settings (notification area > bluetooth tray icon) and ensure that the following settings are checked:
   - allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer
   - allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer
   - Link to picture
   - when finished, reset the Creative Wireless T30 speakers to the default settings (see this guide) and pair it using this guide.
   - after pairing the bluetooth speaker & successfuly setting it as the default playback device, try to disconnect it and pair it again (reboot if necessary)
   - Sample image

Hi, I'm having some trouble setting up my new notebook to wake on lan from shutdown.It works great from sleep, and I've gone through all the settings multiple times, with no luck. In the bios, there are no power management settings available, but since it works from sleep, it should also be possible from shutdown, especially since the setting is enabled in the network adapter properties. Thanks for any and all suggestions to help me get this up and running. Been using this feature on all our PCs for many years.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 2-15 WOL from shutdown?

I had the same issue. After many hours of screwing around with it, it turned out to be my misinterpretation of a parameter on my Ethernet card power management tab.I ASSummed that it was logical to leave "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" unchecked while selecting the other two options - "allow this device to wake the computer", and  "only allow a magic packet to wake the computer".  In my defence in the attached image you'll see the magic packet option remains selected in either case! Just a little greyed out.... (insert huge sigh here)... lesson learned! Correct:   Incorrect:

I'm getting a new Lenovo Flex 2 15.The problem is that it comes only with 256GB SSD, which is not enough for my needs.My question is if there's a place inside to add also an HDD drive. Thanks!

Answer:Lenovo Flex 2 15 storage

It looks like you could replace the main drive with a larger 7mm drive, or you can add another NGFF SSD.http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_flex_2_14_flex_2_14d_flex_2_15_flex_2_15d_hmm...

I am considering purchasing a new laptop for school-- particularly the Flex 2 14" laptop is appealing. If I install Windows 7 on this laptop, will the Windows 8 drivers still work? Thanks.

Hi guys, I have a Lenovo Flex 2-15, model name 20405,i3-4030U @ 1.9 GHz 6GB Ram etc. and was wondering if there's a M.2 NGFF on the motherboard of this laptop cause I want to use an SSD as a boot drive and my HDD as a mass storage. I don't really want to replace the HDD with a SSD though. I'm trying to buy this SDD. Can anyone give me any insight? I've been getting mixed information in some posts saying that some have m2 ports and some do not. I haven't opened my laptop yet. Thanks !

I replaced the battery pack of my lenovo flex 2 14 20404 following standard procedure(i THINK). Now, the laptop wont come on but the board recognizes the battery and the indicator(white) comes on when a charger is connected with the battery in place. please help. Is it possible that there's a failsafe put in by lenovo such that only service centers can replace batteries?
