Preferred Solution: I cannot open my Lenovo ideapad 11s after 4 days.

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.)

I bought this Y580 in Malaysia. My aunt, to be precise, who bought it about a month ago, while she went there with my grandparents for medical check-up. We weren't able to see each other (due to the fact that we live in different city) until 3 days after Chinese New Year, 17th February.  But after only used it for 2 DAYS (YES, TWO DAYS), something's wrong with the screen. It turned blank. After going through some diagnoses finally I found out that the problem is on the screen, I don't know if it's only the wire or the screen panel. The technician didn't tell me.Being extremely busy, I was only able to take it two days ago to the service center. But the technician said some things about the time of the repair, due to some problems Lenovo Indonesia suffered recently, like it's gonna take a long time to get it done Fyi, this model isn't available in Indonesia so I immediately assume that it'll take a LONG TIME to repair, because they have to ship this sparepart from another country, I pressume, which will take a long time while I need it for my studies.Why did I buy this thing in Malaysia instead of Indonesia ? I'm in Indonesia maybe only for 4 monthsand then I'll go to Malaysia for years and actually, this model comes with international warranty. I should have some peace in mind, right ? But the truth is now I'm panicking. And the irony is I only used it for 2 DAYS. You may say that I'm impatient or what, but I'm being realistic here. I'm not sure ... Read more

im thinking of buying the y410p and wondering if i can return it if the box is open. if so, how many days do i have?

Answer:can i return my lenovo ideapad y410p if it is open?

hi nbrar96,
 
Im very sorry to hear that but,
   You will have to call Lenovo Technical Support first for you to have the case logged,
this will serve as the Sales Team reference as Technical Support check about your concern with the computer as it may be resolved over the phone(Software or Settings problem)  or the system really needs replacement if having hardware Issues.
 
Can you share the problems you have with the system maybe we can help.
 
Thanks and Regards

My lenovo ideapad y700 15isk touch laptop refuses to open up aplications that i assigned shortcut function keys to, microsoft says that you can use icons on the desktop to do this and also in the start menu. I right click on the icon properties and set the shortcut as ctrl+alt+s to open STEAM, yet none of the short cut commands work, i even made sure no other aplications and or fuctions use the same key combinations. I did ficgure out that the lenovo user interface driver was the cause of the issue, but i want to use the shortcut conds with the driver fully functional.

Hi there. I recently bought this notebook (on Dec. 24, 2010) and it's been fine though I've been having this bizarre issue with the screen going black while the computer is on and I am unable to get out of it unless I force; shut down, the computer (holding down the power button) and then turning it back on. The first occurance was when I was trying to get a system rating score (Start > Computer (Right Click) > Properties > System : Rating)  The process seems as if it is going fine but then a little over half way in (or about half way) the screen goes black and doesn't return from that.  At first I thought it was just some power setting (new computer) so I tried pressing keys, trying to switch to the built in monitor (Fn + F3), moving the mouse, and nothing was working, so I forced it to shut down and turned it back on and it works. The second occurance was with just leaving it idle for maybe 30 minutes, which again, I thought was just a power setting and again I could not get out of it.  I did another forced shut down and when it turned on again everything was working.  From here I investigated the power settings more thoroughly.  I made sure that it wouldn't put the computer to sleep (even though the computer stays on during the problem), and I made sure in the advanced power settings that the hard disk were to 'never' be turned off if idling. After this I decided to try to test to get a system rating again and of c...

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

I had a virus a few days ago. I tried to delete the virus after downloading a scanner. My laptop rebooted and had a blue screen that gave me options to fix, reset to factory, etc however the keyboard wasn't working so I couldn't put in my password. The only option without the password was to reset totally so I did. After a while another screen popped up saying there was an issue with the resetting. Long story short when I reboot only the lenovo splash comes up, F2 and F12 at the bottom of the screen, and the curser in the top left corner blinks a few times and then disappears. I can't get it to boot for nothing. I am able to plug another keyboard in but now all I get is the black screen and have no options to reset. I've read that the bios is probably the issue but have not clue how to get this set back up. Won't read usb flash. Please help.

 Hi, my name is Ben and i own a 2 year old Lenovo Y530 laptop with windows Vista Home Premium.Everything was working fine, when one day about a month and a half ago, i got the "blue screen of death".Better known as an error code, where your computer crashes.I then proceeded to re-install windows vista, where then it failed to install the updates, and only after a very short amount of time of actually being in the desktop of the computer, it crashed once more, giving the classic error message of it might be something new that was installed, or new hardware, when in reality i didn't install or add/remove any new equipment whatsoever.I bought this Laptop in the US 2 years ago in late 2008, and then moved to Israel.So here is the real problem, after checking the HDD for bugs, or viruses, it was fpormatted, and put back in, also following a system recovery from Lenovos one click recovery system.And found that neither the HDD, or the OS was trhe problem.So since i live in Israel, i sent it to my local Lenovo shop, where they said they do not fix these types of lenovo laptops!So how am i supposed to get to the bottom of this issue? if my local computer lenovo store does not fix my model of computer?I would like an answer ASAP because i need this computer for school and such, and the information that was lost is irrelevant, i would just like the computer to be functioning and stable again.Thank you, and much regards,Ben. 

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad Y530 Crashed, not working, no tech support, need expert/lenovo technician advice

To be covered by warranty, your laptop must have IWS (International Warranty Service). That's the only way to get covered. http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/UserFiles/IWS/20100909035858_62.htm Best regards.

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!

Currently I have a mail setup using fetchmail to grab mail from my pop accounts, then using procmail it is filtered through spam-assassin which has tons of custom rules. It works pretty well, but it's a really old setup. I don't even know if procmail exists anymore, if I was to update the distro. It's currently running on FC9. Yes, 9.

While the setup works well, it's kinda dirty as I have one linux user per pop account. I'm looking at moving over to a kerberos based setup so I want to get rid of all these accounts if possible.

Just curious what everyone here is doing for spam filtering these days. Note that I'm looking specificly at open source solutions, that work with Postfix, in Linux. Probably still Spamassassin, more looking at how is it normally setup.

A bonus would also be if I can set some per user rules at the virtual user level. Or perhaps have some users who don't have it enabled at all.

I'm also debating on if I want to drop the fetchmail stuff, and just do the spam filtering directly at the online server. Then I just imap directly to that server to access my mail. Would also enable me to setup webmail so I can login from anywhere. In fact, maybe skip imap and use only web mail. Just need to find a decent client where I can have all my accounts show up in one login. I'm open for suggestions for that as well.
 

Answer:Open Source only: what's the best way these days for spam filtering?

iRedMail? It's what I use to run my personal mail server. Just a bunch of scripts to automate the installation of the various opensource packages.

I was moving some files around and renaming folders and stuff and then all of a sudden I can't open any of the folders. The ones I was using that were accessible through my favourite list are still there but they've turned white and when I double click on them it comes up with the following warning-

Windows cannot find ''. make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

Also the Pictures folder is in my favourites and it's white and doesn't open up anything, but it has now disappeared from the Libraries list.

I was just in the process of organising some work I needed to back up and now I've lost it all. I have Card Recovery so I can probably use that to recover the files but would I get them in the order I want and would they be named files? I still have the original files just I had it all organised for the next stage of work.

I hope someone can help me here, and there is an easy fix to this, otherwise I'm screwed.

Answer:HELP ! Can't open folders ! Just lost three days of work !

OK I'm just about to do a system restore from 5 days ago when I updated something, if anyone knows a better way to fix this please let me know in the next 5 minutes as there is still a little bit of work that I will lose if I go back. This is work from a while back I should have backed up but neglected to and now I'm paying the price for that. I'm hoping that the system restore will fix this.

Like I say, it's something to do with the Pictures folder, it has corrupted because i renaming folders or something. I don't know why this has happened but maybe it's a common bug that someone knows about.

I installed Windows 10 a few days ago and it was working fine. As far as I remember, the only thing I tinkered with today were mouse settings (tails, click speed, etc). Now I have the following problems:

1) Most/all of it is related starting up programs
Left click on Start Menu does nothing. Right click brings up normal Start Menu items in black/white.

2) When I left click on items in the list only some of the items on the Start Menu will launch
"Do launch" list:
Event viewer
Disk management
Computer management
Powershell
Powershell (Admin)
Task manager
Run
Shut down or sign out

"Don't launch" list:
Programs and Features
Power Options
System
Device manager
Network Connections
Control panel
File Explorer
Search

Things I have tried:
Restart
Restart with shift held down
Power off button
Checked Task Manager to verify nothing is running/hogging the system
Checked Task Manager: Kaspersky is running using using 5% of memory.

Related problems?
Earlier I could click on the up arrow on the right end of the task bar that normally shows things like Kaspersky, Bluetooth and other resident programs. The only thing that would show up was a "dot" icon for something. Kaspersky icon would show up gray and then disappear. Now there is no up arrow at all to click on.
Clicking on a shortcut for Internet Explorer blinks but does nothing.
Clicking on a shortcut for the calculator brings up a window with a small stylized calculator image and that is all.

Hello, I need help on my Lenovo Companion app with it's dust removal option.
 
I just bought my Lenovo ideapad 700 for a week now.
 
Previously I had the dust removal option in the Lenovo Quick Optimizer widget on taskbar.
 
After I turned it on, the option never existed anymore in the quick widget and even in Lenovo Companion app itself.

Hi, I purchased by yoga 2 11" on Sunday afternoon, and as of this morning it is completely lifeless. I was woking on the laptop Tuesday night absolutely fine. I shut the system down and plugged in the charger so that it could charge overnight. I tried to turn in on and absolutely nothing happened. I unplugged the charger and tried again, still nothing. It is worth mentioning that the battery had ~50% power left when I powered down. I thought that maybe it was just an unlucky moment, so took it to work anyway to continue trying throughout the day to get it to turn on, but still nothing. I have tried using the charger in a different socket, just incase that was the cause, but still nothing. I phoned customer support from the number on my reciept to be continually told that all of the agents are busy, one will be with me shortly! I looked online and found that the phone are not manned after 6PM. Awefully nice of you to let me know that on the phone whilst I was waiting for an agent... I have searched online for results, with none coming to light and it seems that this is not a rare problem for these machines. Lenovo, what can you do about my £400 paperweight? My work it important to me and the fact that these machines fail so often is extremely worrying.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 2 11" - 3 days old & completely lifeless.

If Lenovo does not fix the machine, open it up and unplug the battery for 1 hour. Really, by 15 min it should be up and ready to boot again.... Once the battery is plugged in, press the OKR button (NOT the POWER button). Select BIOS and disable secure and fast boot.

Replaced a 7 year old HP last week with this Lenova. WOW!! extremely qyiet(I mean whisper quiet) found all my drivers including one for my HP 6L and installed all my old XP programs without a hitch. This is my first experience with Windows 7 so I am still getting used to the "change" loathe change!!! anyway this PC is so slow....I mean if this was a running race my old HP would hav left thr lenovo at the start line....I am not sure if its the PC or the DSL or maybe the gateway combo router/modem which is almost 2 years old. Frankly I only had a 1,000 ram with my HP & 200 HD..so having 6G of ram and a terabyte HD is HUGE to me...I did try to remove alot of the junk off of it, and am still trying to find that site that had the definititons for all the programs so you know what to get rid of.....I am thinking I need the NEW gateway combo router, which AT & T just came out with, I also increased my speed from 1-3(getting 2) to 3-6(starts tomorrow) so I hopefully will get at least 4 on that. any other ideas? thanks

H Security said:



Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) has released information on a security problem in McAfee's Security-as-a-Service products (SaaS). The vulnerability broker says that it told McAfee about the hole in April 2011, and that it has now decided to publicly release the information because the vendor still hasn't provided a patch.
The flaw is contained in the myCIOScn.dll program library. In this library, the MyCioScan.Scan.ShowReport() method insufficiently filters user input and executes embedded commands within the context of the browser. The flaw can be exploited when a user opens a specially crafted file or web page. ZDI rates the issue as very severe and has given it a CVSS score of 9 ? maximum severity is 10.
ZDI's advisory doesn't state exactly which products are affected. McAfee's range of SaaS products includes "SaaS Email Encryption" for encrypting emails and "Vulnerability Assessment SaaS", which checks software for potential vulnerabilities.
As a workaround, ZDI recommends that users set the kill bit in the registry to prevent Internet Explorer from instantiating the affected ActiveX control. To do so, the "Compatibility Flags" DWORD entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\209EBDEE-065C-11D4-A6B8-00C04F0D38B7 must be set to "0x00000400".

Win 7 Ultra 64 since when first came out and only recently and seems randomly open programs icons "hide" behind taskbar and only on primary monitor (have 4 - 24" ).

I have read old reports of taskbar blocking desktop etc but not exactly the same. (some back a few years) and tried killing explorer.exe and restarting, tried all the various combinations of options for the taskbar, moved it from bottom to top to side Pinned items are fine. The running programs do not overlap (to right of pinned) and the taskbar is somewhat transparent so I can faintly see them blurry behind the taskbar bar. But they will not respond (have to use task manager to switch to them). Using landscape mode on primary so lots of room.

Rebooting clears up but then comes back but can not identify what could cause it.

No recent updates (maybe one for Windows) that I know of.

Not sure if related to windows or could be multi-monitor program also use but no changes in that for years either - so wondering if others have experienced and if could be windows related with a solution

Thanks

Answer:Open programs hide behind task bar only last few days/week

Hi davephx and welcome to the Forum.
Try doing a system restore to a point before this problem occured. If you have an Anti Virus software like Norton you may have to go into Safe Mode for the system restore to work.

Hi everyone, I'm from Argentina, so I apologize for my english.My problem with Lenovo G470 is this: every 10, 12 days it shutdowns and can't use it for a time. I'm doing anything (listening to music, writting a text, etc) or sometimes I'm afk and just doing nothing and it happens anyway. And then, for a time it's impossible to start windows. I turn on the laptop and the Lenovo logo appears, but then just shuts down.Maybe 4-5 hours later it starts to work ok again. Im not sure aboout this because when this happen i usually leave it there and come back the next day.I've been reading a lot of posts in this forum about similar problems, but I couldn't find this exact same problem that I have.Also, this happens on battery or plugged in. Is the same. Another weird thing that occurs sometimes is that when I'm using it on battery and I turn it off, the laptop shutdown, but the on/off button light doesn't turns off. I need to plug it in to solve this.I don't know if could be related, but I replaced the W7 home basic with the ultimate version. While I had it with home basic this didn't happened, but it was a short time (2 days) so I couldn't determine if this is related. Anyway I have the recovery CDs if a probable solution would be that.I've read here about solutions like flashing the bios. I didn't do it but I could try it if you think it could work.

I've noticed that if I leave my XP machine on for a few days straight that the Task Manager won't open. Also, Notepad doesn't work nor a few other programs.

I have scanned the computer in safe mode w/Networking with Malware Bytes, Microsoft Security Essentials, and in regular mode with Spybot Search and Destroy and Avira.

They didn't find anything.

However a few weeks ago Microsoft Security Essentials found:
Win32/TightVNC

and removed it twice in a few days.

I'm not sure what that is or how it got there. But I do know this:
I have some issues with the task manager not opening after the machine has run a few days. And the computer is about 5 years old with two hard drives. Both have XP loaded on them but I boot from only one.

Curious what the problem may be. I figured virus but none of the programs I use are finding one.

I have run:
-Spybot Search and Destroy
-Malware Bytes
-Microsoft Security Essentials
-Avira Antivirus

thanks for any help!

I opened the Lenovo Welcome Screen after downloading the preload from the Lenovo supplied CDs for a 6418-12U (A61e). Lenovo service provided the CDs after a CMOS error prevented my system from rebooting. A Levono onsite service person installed the preload. The message appears at the bottom of the screen under View your computer.  I have Vista Business and SP1 is not installed as yet. I selected the activate now and received the msg " this is not a genuine copy of Vista' .  Then 3 options were presented: enter the proper product code, buy a new copy of Vista or contact Lenovo Support" I called Lenovo. .. they do not give out product codes (the one displayed on the screen is not it and the sticker on the side of the A61 should not be entered either).  Support informs me that one is not required to repond to this message. I would expect that this may cause some confusion when Vista SP1 gets installed as it requires a genuine product code.   Anyone elese have this message and have you successfully installed SP1?

Answer:Activate windows (Lenovo Welcome Screen/View your Computer) within next 2 days

I am replying to my own message as I now have a fix for the problem...hope this helps anyone else who experiences it. This is a known microsoft problem. A patch is required:   KB931573    for download instructions go to ...  http://support.microsoft.com/support Lenovo support did not know about this patch. They suggest a call to microsoft or do another preload. Just install the patch, restart and enter the product code from the sticker on the side of your system (this is a valid code). Windows Vista must be validated before SP1 is installed or your system will quit in the time given on the counter. You get about 3 days.

I purchased a brand new Yoga 2 Pro in  the US. SHipped to the UK, and workd fine for 10 days when the SSD suddenly failed. Shipped to Levovo for warranty repair. After 6 weeks they decalred it unrepairable bacause they "cannot get the parts". This a system currently being sold on the Lenovo UK and US web sites, where they specifically mention that "You can count on lightning fast read/write speeds with up to 512GB of reliable solid-state drive (SSD) storage". Does anyone else find it incredible that they should reach such a conclusion for a system that is only a few weeks old. Thay are effectively sellingb systems that they cannot repair, which seems very sharp practice. I suspect that part of the problem is that they sent the system to Germany for repair, and that particular model is out of stock on the German website. Hardly a global approac h to customer service.

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro SSD failed after 10 days - Lenovo claim system is unrepairable

I feel for you, but shortages on high-end or high demand electronic components is nothing new to any manufacturer.  It's unfortunate for us consumers, but it happens to every manufacturer at some point. They should be sending you a new machine if they cannot repair the old one. Stinks that you're stuck in this, but it doesn't seem like they didn't try.  There are other companies that are much worse, they could just ignore you for months. Good luck, ask them to send you a replacement system.

A few weeks ago I saw the Lenovo K430 on NewEgg while shopping for a new Desktop. I was amazed by the K430?s features and great looks. However, after doing some research I became very baffled about the Power Turbo Switch and the many horror stories about upgrading the graphics card. I called Lenovo Technical Support to talk about possibilities and get advice about the graphics card, a woman answered the phone and informed me she had no idea or information about graphics card; but she recommended I speak to Sales. I was transferred to sales and they too informed me that they knew nothing about the computer or graphics card. I decided to call B&H Photo, the name sounds deceiving but they really are the best with support. The Technical Support told me if I really wanted a great computer I should think about building my own. So today, I embarked on the journey to build my own computer and I want to say thank you to Lenovo. If it wasn?t for Lenovo's extremely bad Tech Support and Sales I would not have built my own computer. Lenovo you are so terrible and clueless, you have inspired me, you have driven me by showing me your lack of knowledge and sense of awareness, the idea that a company has a sales and tech department that knows absolutely nothing about their own product.

Hi,

I am requesting help again. I am taking a bit of a different approach. While it will be declined, I will pay for the fix from an established member, if not declined you got it.

Fresh install of Windows 10 which upgraded me to build 1709 (11/2/2017).
5-8 months ago problems with disk usage spiking to 100%. Resources being "Hijacked"/stolen or lost(task manager). This has been an issue with many since Win 8. I've tried EVERY recommended fix. 3 people on MSTECHNET/MS Community said this spiking to 100% resource usage could be the cause of the other errors. Is there an out of the box fix?

Picture is less than .1% of the errors. Image is just there as "proof of problem" not really for diagnostics in my mind. Also keep in mind event viewer was slammed with absurd amounts of errors prior to this fresh install (Weeks/Months ago). And the first week after the install (5-8ish months ago). This is a home PC, nothing special.

If you have a valid copy of windows 7 with a legit COA sticker and can activate it without problems i dont see any need to even have an evaluation period.If your copy of windows 7 isnt valid and the COA sticker isnt anygood id suggest you buy a proper copy of windows 7 with a legit COA sticker and go from there.Because eventually it wont work anymore and you will be locked out of the computer.

You didn't need to set the boot mode to Legacy Support, you should install it without legacy support, but install on the UEFI, so next time turn the legacy support OFF, and install the Windows on the UEFI. If you turn legacy off, it automatically should be UEFI

Hello, I have the latest windows 10 updates installed. but one day my laptop started to lag. because I usually watch movie and listen to music with my laptop, it ruins my experience of watching and listening. I thought it was because of heavy applications so I used the fresh start tool. and it removed most of my applications and the windows worked properly without any lags until I decided to restart it and again the lags came back. now that I don't have any applications or games that can possibly fill the memory or the CPU, I don't know where the lag comes from. so i'm open to suggestions.thank you

Question: Lenovo Ideapad S10

Hi, I've a Ideapad S10 with One Key Rescue System 6.0. Its come preloaded with Windows XP Home. What are my options in changing the OS to either XP Pro or Vista Business? Will One Key still work - additional configuration tasks required? Also, whats the ti-ti-ti-ti sound that comes on system bootup and dies after 2/3 seconds? Regards,Edwin

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad S10

this is just my hunch. since lenovo is offering a licensed OS, the recovery button's software suite might be tied with it. installing another OS with an entirely different license set might not work. but then again, that is just a hunch. by the way, is you s10 heating up? as most people commented?or feared?i am planning to get one but i am not just sure if i have to settle with toaty hot nettie or maybe just buy a samsung nc10 if it won't emit too much heat.

My father bought a Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t. Does anyone know, if the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t, can be upgraded from Win 7 Starter, to Win 7 home basic or premium? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t

The short answer is "yes".

Check out Jesse Andersen's site on the S10-3t. He's pretty much the expert on that machine.

The relevant section for you is Lenovo S10-3T: Windows 7 Starter vs Home Basic vs Home Premium vs Professional vs Enterprise vs Ultimate

I'm thinking about getting one of these, myself.

Hello,since I bought my new laptop back in Dec 2016 and aside from the fact that I had to struggle a bit with the delivery process that ended up to be a non-issue, I was happy with this machine... Til about three weeks ago. Unfortunately, the return period has expired and since the whole story is not relevant here (other than just venting my frustration) I will just try to turn this into a positive experience by asking and perhaps offering advise out there.My ask is: Does any one out there know if there is a way for me to have similar functionality that an Integrated Microphone Array via an outside device or anything on this machine? The Ideapad 310 unfortunately does not come with this device which is embeded in the motherboard. Since I had bought HP laptops in the past which bring it as part of the standard build, I didn't even think (nor did I know) of finding out if this machine had this component. But it doesn't come with it. Yes I know, my bad, I should've sticked to HP, but anyway, I have this piece of expensive hardware (at least for me) and I can't use it for what I need because it does not come with that feature. Please, I've done quite a lot already, so don't offer anything else than what I am asking, please, if you don't know what an IMA does then it is basically an internal microphone that you can use as opposed to a headset. I need that to work that way. Period. So, I don't know, Lenovo tech support had already given their veredict but perhaps some savvy pe... Read more

am looking at S10-2 2957 and S9 -17114, but other models are ok too... i need a six cell battery i need (mostly) lightweight  want cool running -- but not constant fan use... mostly for word processing, but bells and whistle are ok mostly will be composing text documents (compatible with home docs) and will be showing some pix on the road (good graphics) above all, portability and (lengthy) offline document production is key (lots of menial screen use) my understanding is that unit size is about the same for both models, but  s10 provides larger monitor for same specs what is my pick?
