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 there, I am planning to purchase ideapad laptop.Initially I was interested in Z series, but came to know that there is .77ghz stuck problem. So I have diverted my search to Flex and U series (U430 and U530). I need help to decide which one is the best and should I prefer either of them to Z series. Also please let me know pros and cons of Flex and U series. I'll appreciate your help. Thanks Apoorva p.s. I am not a gamer. So Y series is out of question.

I need I'm in so much trouble, I have 'bricked my mother's brand new Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 10 laptop (model: 20324) after an unsuccessful BIOS update.I'm hoping to restore the BIOS by unplugging the laptop, inserting USB with BIOS file on it, holding down fn+r and then plugging in laptop and powering on. The USB contains BIOS downloaded from Lenovo https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/93cn59ww(v9.9&v3.8).exe I extracted 93cn59ww.fd and used Andy's Phoenix Tool (from mydigitallife website) to find bios filename but Andy's Tool doesn't show what filename I should rename it to on USB.When I power on the laptop all that happens is the white power light comes on. However,If I hold fn+r while turning the laptop on the power light turns red and continues to blink. If I plugin or unplug the power cable the laptop beeps. I'm hopefull I can get this working if I can find out the filename. I've tried naming the file bios.bin, bios.fd, bios.wph, ect but I have had no luck.The original bios was InsydeH20 93cn55ww(v9.5).64bitPlease can anybody help me find the filename I need to rename 93cn59ww.fd to on the USB? I'm in so much trouble!I'm not smart enough to figure this out on my own but I'm hoping somebody else here can help. Many thanks in advance to somebody who knows how to do it.

Hello, I discovered that my Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2-15D was acting a little funny and whem I looked closer I noticed there was a hugh crack on the screen. I ordered it from BestBuy.com and got in touch with them and they directed me to calling Lenovo about 1 year warranty, I purchased in 5 months ago, they told me the cost to send it in would $489+$99 fee or send me the part itself which would be $310. I've tried looking for the part online but I couldn't seem to find it could someone point me on the right direction on where to go to find a new screen somewhere else online?

I just received this machine (from Costco https://www.costco.com/Lenovo-Flex-4-Series-2-in-1-Touchscreen-Laptop---Intel-Core-i7---2GB-Graphics...) in the mail and it's been a mess to get set up in regards to the graphics.  It has an integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 card and a dedicated 2GB AMD Radeon R7 M460 Graphics card.  I have two main issues: I keep getting a BSOD related to dxgmmm2.sys when the Radeon card is enabled.  I found the computer is stable and working just fine when it's disabled.  I've tried installing a new/updated driver but I have to enable the driver to do that (then the BSOD comes within seconds of the computer accessing it).  The Intel card does not output any image to the third monitor I have connected via a USB/VGA adapter.  Though the machine recognizes it and allows windows to move off into that monitor, there is no picture.  The monitor is on, connected, and works properly.  It flashes when I start up the computer and make changes to the display.  I've also done a factory reset on the monitor a couple of times to no avail. Any ideas how I can get this running correctly?

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

 HelloI have a flex 3 1470 (model 80JK001GUS) which comes with a NVIDIA graphics card (940m). I recently had a problem with power, I took it to a lenovo service center, and they replaced the motherboard to fix it. However, After replacing the motherboard, my laptop does not detect the presence of an NVIDIA card; I cannot install new drivers because it says that there is no card either.  The device manager lists it as "disconnected" (code 45) and has it hidden.  Here is what i have attempted to do so far(I have a restore point set before the attempts so if it doesnt work i can go back)1. Delete all NVIDIA drivers, programs (except GEFORCE EXPERIENCE), reboot run GEFORCE EXPERIENCE.-problem GEFORCE Does not detect NVIDIA GPU2.

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.

I did that to my 3 year old z570 (max on the manual says 8 gb.... now it has $50 16 gb ram chips)..... Works flawlessly. It really depends on the ram you have.... is it soldered or is it removable. If removable, I would not wait till the warranty period is over. Do it now.  if the computer needs repair, just swap back the old ram. Ram upgrade is the easiest thing to do on a computer and there are thousands of How-to videos on it.

Question: Ideapad flex 15

Just received my new Ideapad Flex 15 and I can't say that I'm that impressed. Firstly, it's taken me ages to upgrade from the installed Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, then the laptop started to develop problems and continually re-boots with some sort of error, and now it takes over 2mins to restart!!! In addition, when it restarts the monitor goes blank for about a minute. Can't say I'm very happy with this "investment". As a former IBM employee I expected much better.As the PC came with little or no documentation, does anyone know where can get support for this machine? Any help gratefully received. Regards

Answer:Ideapad flex 15

1. The upgrade from Windows 8 to Window 8.1 This issue is mainly down to the Microsoft servers, the estimated wait is predicted from 15mins to 45mins depending on your Internet speed, their server load and how fast the laptop specification is once the download is completed to initiate the "install" section. 2. Continually Reboots with some sort of error Mainly error codes indicate which piece of software as gone wrong, if your able to acquire the codes it would help isolate the fault and try give the board the means in which to help you rectify the issue. I say software because I would assume before 8.1 installed the continual reboot were not present. This being the only change and you have not installed any third party software after this then we can attribute 8.1 being the cause and that some part of the software you are running requires some updates. With your issue being around graphic interface I would hazard a guess and say you need to update your graphic drivers. When the laptop fires up press F8 and enter the pc in safe modefind out which graphics card is installed on your system - http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS037707- http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS039244 Hope this gives you something to look into

Hi SmileSmoke,
 
Have you contacted Lenovo Support and spoken to them about your situation? Did you contact them when the unit was returned to you to log the fault?
 
If you did for the second question then they should be able to help you and repair under warranty as it would be a failed repair.

Hey guys, not sure where to put this as I didn't see a place for the Flex 15 series. Anyways, for some reason the CPU seems to be stuck at .12 Ghz, this has the effect of making the computer extremely slow obviously. The HDD shows no SMART errors, and their is a noticable delay in the bios loading and when using the BIOS which has led me to believe that this is not a software problem.  I have been trying to download a program that will show CPU temps and fan speeds to see if the CPU is throttling itself for some reason but have been unsuccessful due to how slow the processor is running. I can hear the CPU fan running, which leads to the possibility that the heatsink has become unseated from the CPU and the CPU is now throttling down to avoid heat damage. Anyone encountered this problem before? I would like to avoid taking the laptop apart as it was only purchased new online in May.

I recently purchased a Flex 4 14 inch 1470 (80SA series) laptop. It comes with the Pentium 4405U processor and Intel HD Graphics 510 video adapter. The screen is a 366x768 TN panel (quite unfortunately, though I did know this in advance).  Looking at the Lenovo Flex 4 lineup, it seems that there are several similar models with the same processor and graphics adapter, but with a 1920x1080 IPS screen. Would it be possible to swap out the stock TN panel with one of the 1920x1080 IPS screens?  If links are allowed, I am looking at the following screens that are available for this series: https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/Lenovo/FLEX%204%2080SA%20SERIES/ Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the problem may be with you PXE server either not reachable, or is not passing the proper Network Boot Program files to the client.

Hi! I have the Lenovo IdeaPad 14 (US version) with a hybrid drive Seagate SSHD Thin (500GB HDD + 8GB SSD). I want to upgrade to an SSD and dual-boot with Ubuntu 14.04. My main issues are the following:     - Is the HDD user replaceble? Would I be voiding my warranty if I open my laptop?    - Can I use the mSATA and SATA to put two drives and dual-boot between them? Would the BIOS/UEFI allow me to do so? (I haven't previously worked with mSATA drive and I don't know how they are recognised by the motherboard or how they appear in device manager)    - How do I safely transfer my Windows 8.1 installation from the old SSHD to the new SSD in order to keep my files/settings and most importantly my Windows license?    - While I'm at it, why not upgrade the RAM as well. So does the laptop have one or two slots for RAM as I couldn't find any specs/service manual online?    - Where do I find a service manual in order to know how to properly disassemble the laptop? If anybody knows the answer to any of these, please write/post a link here. It will be much appreciated! Thank you!

As far as i know you do not. Windows will install on the biggest drive. If you were upgrading the M.2 and puttin windows on that instead so you could have a 250gb and a 1tb drive you would have to unplug the tb drive for the install.

Hello there, Not really sure whether this is a topic that i can post here on this particular section. If it is against the rule, please let me know i will removed it.  Earlier this year( around January) I purchased a ideapadd Flex 4 from the Microsoft store around my house. Everything is fine, until one day my screen started to go black and sometimes the screen color become very very red. I took the laptop to the store before i went back. The store told me that it is because the laptop's screen itself is kind damaged which require me to send my laptop back to Lenovo to fix the screen. When i bought my computer, I also have the one year warranty with this computer. My question right now is is it possible for me to say instead of asking Lenovo to fix the screen, can I say exchange this laptop for a new series? what I mean is I saw the Lenovo Legion online and was thinking is it possible to say i send in my old one and get Lenovo Legion and any price difference between the two laptop i will just pay? it is just that if i do send in my ideapad to Lenovo it will take 2 weeks for them to fix and i really really tried to avoid that because my class is about to start and without my only laptop for more than a week is a bit of stretch for me.

After approximately 1 week of this, it would only stay on with power cord attached even though battery indicated full.  Then suddenly would no longer turn on. Tried to use my extended warranty thru Costco. Was sent in to their repair station in Lawrenceville GA. They reported to Costco that there was water damage (which Costco won't cover without my having purchased another different warranty from them) and that the repair amount was over $700 (more than I paid for the machine).  I am a former IT employee, now retired, and I have NEVER spilled anything on this device. I cracked the back open and looked for damage or for any tags that had changed color on motherboard, or a possible detector on motherboard that had changed color.  Don't see anything - no corrosion.  Just prior to machine not turning on again, I connected to the Lenovo diagnostics and ran the dx on this laptop.  It showed no errors.  Are there any water exposure stickers on this device?  and what would indicate water damage?  thanks for any assistance

Hello! So I've been having this issue where my laptop keeps freezing an hour or so into using it. I've checked my storage space and my ram and it's all ok. My laptop isn't overheating either as I have a table with a fan built in underneath. I'm not sure what's causing the problem. I can move my mouse and my music still works but my screen is frozen. I'm also unable to alt tab or use ctrl alt del. I've resorted to having to power reset everytime my laptop fails.  Please advise me on what to do and thank you very much!

Answer:Ideapad flex 14 keeps freezing

Hi, RainbowMika ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
You can also start by flushing out all static, remove battery and AC adaptor and hold down power button for about 15 seconds.
 
Run a few tests from this link -
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/lenovodiagnosticsolutions/tools
 
You should try Storage test, memory test, motherboard test, CPU test. Open Command prompt and try sfc /scannow to check if your windows files are corrupted.
 
Update us how it goes.

Bought  Lenovo Ideapad Flex 15 in December from TigerDirect. The first problem was the error:"HDD EFI Driver Failed"I then tried to get into Legacy Mode but that did not work. Went on to trying to do a System Restore. Unfortunately, the computer was not plugged in and died half way through the system restore. Now it is in a continues loop of Preparing Automatic Repair and Diagnosing PC. Then it just restarts. I can get into the BIOS but I not sure where to go from there. I am not trying to save anything on the computer so any support on how to wipe the drive and reinstall Windows 8 would be great! I not sure where the key is for windows 8 and i never received anything from TigerDirect. Ideas?

Answer:Ideapad Flex 15 - restore

Are you encountering the same startup errors when booting straight from the One Key Recovery button? I assume the startup error is occuring while trying to boot the OS, and not booting the recovery.
 
As far as I know, Lenovo utilizes a corporate activation (no printed key) on the Flex 15. You may be able to get Lenovo to send you recovery media, or even have them just re-image if covered by your warranty.

I want to add a HDD on my Ideapad model 80XB0006 and although the manual shows how to remove both SSD and HDD there is no spec on the HDD. Since I will order online I must have a model / type which will fit on the space I have. Now I have a SSD 256GB. I did have a chat this morning with Lenovo rep but gave up after I got nowhere.Thanks

Answer:Adding HDD to Ideapad Flex 15

Hi oskarIT,
 
Greetings.
 
Using the model type 80XB here on the parts lookup page shows compatible harddrive :
Part number: 16200383 ST500LT012 6G 7mm 5.4K 500G HDD
Part number: 16200554 WD10SPCX-24HWST1 
 
On the same page would also show a number of substitute harddrives too that you can use as described here on the hardware manual page 36.
 
Hope this help answer your query.

I've had my Lenovo ideapad Flex 15 for just over a year now, so I guess this is the time at which things start going kerplooey. Today my touchscreen started going haywire, clicking rapidly and repeatedly in one random spot in the top left corner of my screen, so fast I couldn't use my touchpad to get the cursor away from the spot. After closing and reopening the computer, the problem stopped momentarily but then came back. I rebooted and when Windows restarted I received a pop up that "Windows Mouse and Keyboard Center has stopped working." The problem returned shortly after, and now my touchscreen has stopped working altogether. Can anyone help me?

Answer:Ideapad Flex 15 touchscreen woes

Update: The problem is now intermittently returning. If I close my laptop and reopen it, it seems to disable the touchscreen for a period of time so that I'm able to actually use my computer for a bit before it starts feverishly attacking that one area of the screen. All instructions I've found online to disable the touchscreen haven't worked... I'd love to have it functioning again though. Help?

Answer:BIOS password Ideapad Flex 15

It doesn't always work.First of all which adapter are you using? You need an adapter to convert the analog signal from VGA to a digital signal in HDMI. A simple cable isn't enough.

Answer:Ideapad Flex 15 touchscreen isn't working

hi acmaria,
 
Welcome to the Forums
 
Can you open System Properties and check if the OS is not detecting the Touchscreen functionality:
  - Link to picture (Touchscreen not detected)
  - Link to picture (Touchscreen is detected)
 
If the Touchscreen is not detected, try the following:
1. Hold the Shift Key and restart the machine to boot into the System Recovery Options screen. Once there, try to select any of the options by touching the screen and observe.
2. Shutdown the machine, press the OneKey Recovery button and select System Recovery. On the recovery menu, try to select any of the options by touching the screen and observe..
   - Link to picture
 
3. If the Touchscreen still doesn't work on one of the options above then it's likely that the digitizer have gone faulty and you need to contact lenovo for service.
 
Support phone list
 
If the Touchscreen detected, try uninstalling the HID Compliant Touchscreen first under the Device Manager > Human Interface Devices then reboot. If same problem, you may need to consider doing a System Restore or System Recovery to isolate the issue on the OS level.
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
