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 turned my Lenovo laptop on Friday to see the usual splash Lenovo on start up and then nothing else happened it kept continually doing that and going no further. Just so you know my laptop has no warranty left as I got it last Christmas second hand. I have been looking at demonstration videos on you tube and what I have tried so far is. I plugged in an external usb keyboard and got into bios and checked it was detecting my hard drive and it was. The next step I did was disconnect internal power/ battery and did the hold of the power button for 30 seconds to 1 minute  with the power cord connected only. And it was still doing the same. I then got advised to remove the cmos battery turn on laptop and then back off and put the battery back in. This has also failed to work so now I am looking for help here as I don't know what to do next and am hoping someone here has a different suggestion for me to try and hopefully get my laptop back up and running. Thank you in advance for any help given.

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 everyone! May I check if Lenovo Flex 2-14 (Model: 20404, Core i7 4510U) support 2TB 2.5" Seagate Firecuda HDD? The z-height is just 7mm so it should fit perfectly. Just that I am not sure if the particular size and model are supported or not. Hope to hear from you guys soon, thanks in advance.

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.

Just unboxed my Lenovo Flex 3 and so far I pretty much love it. My only problem is I cannot access the "Lenovo Settings" app on Windows 8.1. It asks if I want to send info back to the devs to help with the app but then it freezes and sends me back to the desktop. Is there a fix for this problem? Also, I am unsure how to change my preferences for my trackpad.

Hi, I was thinking of buying this hybrid:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16834332513 And then upgrading it with this:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820250085 I'm not clear on whether this voids the warranty or not? As close as I can understand it, it "may" if I mess something up? I've opened at least 100 laptops without messing anything up, so I'm confident I can do it without damaging anything, but I have also seen motherboards and touchscreens die in the first year, and don't want to mess up that part of the warranty for an SSD upgrade. I figured I'd make sure it powered on, then shutdown, crack it open, install the M.2 SSD, clone everything over, wipe the old SSD once into windows, and then finally perform the product registration. (Which uploads all your hardware specs? So they'd know everything was A-Okay with the new drive in place?) Thoughts? Anyone got more info on how strict they are with self service?

This comes with 16.0GB DDR4 2133 MHz and 1TB 5400 RPM+128GB PCIe SSD.  My question is as follows: Can I upgrade the Hard Drive to more capacity like 256 GB SSD or 512 GB SSD in future? If yes, can I get this done via Lenovo Support or do I need to do it on my own? Basically, I just want to know if the System provides me the ability to upgrade Hard Drive - both HDD and SSD.

Hello.. I'm new to the community and this is my first post. My name's Phil. I recently picked up a Lenovo flex 15. i7 4500u 8GB memory 500 GB HD and 8 GB SSD. The model I have does not include discreet graphics. I see that there is a flex 15 available that comes with an nvidia gt740m graphics card. Is it possible for me to open mine up and install this same card on the motherboard? Also curious about upgrading the SSD. Is the included 8 GB SSD attached in a hybrid fashion to the HD or is it an actual separate drive? I'm hoping I can replace the 8 GB SSD with a larger SSD to install Windows and my programs on and still keep the 500 GB HD on board.. Is this possible?

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.

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

I am looking at buying a Lenovo Flex 14 at a reasonable price but Im struggling to find if I have options that I want for HD.
I was going to go with a 1TB Hybrid drive but Im hearing bad reviews on them. The SSD that comes with it isnt near enough storage for me.
Then I thought, I could keep the SSD for the OS if I could install and additional HD for storage.
Can anyone tel me if there is a slot for an additional drive either as M.2, NGFF, mSATA or with an expansion using the optical drive slot?
Lenovo isnt very forthcoming with information on this that I can find.
 

Answer:Lenovo Flex 14 additional HD

According to the reviews I have read there are different versions of the flex 14. Some come with a 128Gb SSD, others come with a 500gb HDD. Also in the different version there are different CPUs. None of the reviews mention an optical drive and from the appearance of the case I see no ports that you could install one. Judging by the size of the case it doesn't appear to have a slot for a second hard drive.

Hi everybody! I bought a lenovo flex 2 pro and it is a very good product, but I have a little problem that is very annoying. Even if I am surfing with Google Chrome and I open facebook page, the fan start for few seconds. The temperature is 35*(displayed in lenovo settings app). Is there an option to change fan behaviour? I have updated to last bios.Thanks everybody

Answer:Lenovo Flex 2 Pro Fan Noise

up: I noticed that the "problem" is that when I open facebook page for example, the temperature raise to 50° and the fan starts. Is there an option to control the fan? Unfortunately there isn't in the bios and SpeedFan can't recognize it

My Lenovo Flex won't respond at all when I try to wake it up from sleep mode. I've tried to unplug it and hold the power button down for 30 seconds, but the light just keeps flashing. It's been unplugged all day, so to help battery should be really low, but it's not turning off. Any ideas or suggestions on what to do? I go back to classes soon and I need it for my classes, so I really need it up and running asap.

Answer:Lenovo Flex Won't Wake Up

This seems to be a widespread issue with Lenovo laptops for a very long time, but there appears to be very little effort being taken by Lenovo support to provide its customers with the solution, or a document with the steps to resolve the issue. Holding the power button down for 30 seconds should (on nearly all laptops and desktop computers) forces a hard power off, but apparently that does not work on Lenovo Laptops when they gets stuck in this state. From what I can gather from various forums on the Internet, the only way to get the system booting again, sort of waiting until the battery dies, is to remove the rear cover, and unplug the battery, wait a minute or so, and and then pug it back in.   Some users also report that updating the video driver, and perhaps the BIOS, will resolve the issue, but Lenovo Support has chosen to remain silent (publicly anyway) on which one, if any, is an actual fix on any of the many forum posts regarding the error, which leads me to believe that they haven't a clue. You do not mention what exact model of Flex you have, so I cannot point you too any of the instructions online on how to remove your cover and unplug the battery, so you might post the model number (not the serial number) in the forum,  or open a ticket with Lenovo Support, although I sounds like their phone support has not been too much help for others.  Good Luck,

Hi all! I have this notebook since March, it is absolutely fantastic. But there is a very annoying problem: the fan noise. Each time I open an application or surfing on the web, the fan starts (most times only for few seconds): it seems that  as soon as the cpu reaches 20-30% of usare, the fan starts. Is there a solution? I have the last bios update, it seems that it is impossible to control the fan in any way.Thanks all.

My lenovo flex 3 14 is heating up in the hdd area. It gets so hot that it becomes impossible to use the keyboard for typing. I checked the ventilations and everything was fine. The fan worked fine. I used speccy to check the temperatures.Temperatures were near 60 degrees C under normal load. What might be the problem? Will replacing the hdd with a ssd solve this heating issue.?please help...

Answer:Lenovo Flex 3 14 hdd overheating.

Under load, it is common for a system component to reach 60 degrees C, but it is uncommon for the exterior to be so hot that you can't touch it. Try cleaning the internals with compressed air so the fans will have an easier time spinning.

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:

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. I plugged the charger in, still nothing would turn on or off, I screwed the battery back in place and HEY it turned on.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 2.14 not turning on!

I am a little concerned that you have been mucking about with all those cables without knowing what you are doing. Having had a quick look at the manual, I can't see how you get to the battery, but sometimes this is intentional. Certainly, it seems that power is getting to the battery, but, I suspect, not beyond that, which implies either that the battery is not making contact, or the on/off switch has become faulty. Either way, I am not sure that you can fix the problem and you may have to take it to your vendor to service.

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.

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.

Answer:Stylus for Lenovo Flex 2 15

HiI have a Lenovo flex 2 14 with mechanical hard drive.

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?

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.

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

I have to turn it off by holding the power button and then turn it back on. And then it will start showing my normal desktop. How can I stop that "sign in" from showing? I never created a password and didn't think I need to do that.
Can anyone help?

In Sign In Options it has "Password.... Your account doesn't have a password. You must add a password before you can use the other sign-in options."
Whatever that means???? I never created a password and don't understand why it is asking me to "Sign In" when I turn in on from the Sleep mode.

After finishing with my work, i shut down, closed the lcd pane and left it on the table. Neither me or my husband had touched it after that. I again went to it on last friday, and shocked to see that it was craked from near the camera to the right side of the lcd.. It had not fallen down, not banged against wall, put on power, left heavy object on it, and nothing. I dont want to pay for a product fault. And its stlll within warranty period.

It should get you to a bios settings
   Go to the Configuration tab and look for the "Hotkey Mode" option Toggle that to Disable the hit F10 or Fn+F10 to save and Exit
 
It should switch the use of F keys to legacy
 
Hope this helps

hi HumanLucifer,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try the following:
1. Turn off the machine, press the Novo button and select System Recovery.
    - Sample image
 
2. On the System Recovery menu, plug in the mouse and observe if it's worknig.
 
If the mouse is working, I recommend you proceed with the factory restore. Otherwise, if the mouse is still not working in the recovery environment then there's likely a problem with the USB port(s) and I recommend you contact lenovo (for service) or the place of purchase (if it's still possible to exchange the unit).
