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:

Dear Community, since a few days I have several problems with the hardware keyboard of my notebook. The on-screen keyboard works well!When I hit spacebar no blank is inserted in the text but all open tasks are opened in small windows (similar to pressing ALT+TAB, but with the task windows staying on screen). It is also not possible to use the Function keys (Increase / decrease brightness, loudness doesn't work) or to use the F-keys (ALT+F4 for example has no function). I opened a few websites, which visually show, which keys are pressed on the keyboard. All standard letter-keys work well. When I press F1 it says "F5", some F-Keys are shown as normal numbers or a letter. I am running Win10 with automatic updates. I tried to restore some older update-points but without having the problem solved. I tried to reinstall touchpad and keyboard drivers -> no results!There is maybe a problem with the keymapping or somekind of driver, which is perhaps not 100% compatible with some OS changes or updates?! Would like to hear any hints or solutions. Kind regardsHergesheim

Dear Experts, I was noticing this problem just after my warranty is expired.  My Lenovo Ideapad flex 15 shuts down exactly in every 30 minutes. Here are some clues.Shutdown even when it is in bios, it is not a driver problem. Reset the bios to default but no outcome.Did comprehensive hardware test using Lenovo Solution Center but not showing any issue.All hardware temperature is normal. There was some dust in CPU fan, causing problem to run it smoothly. Removed the dust, now it is running smoothly. But still, I am having this problem.Removed the BIOS battery for the whole night, no outcome.If I put the laptop in sleep(before 30 min) and wake up immediately, I don't see this problem. I suspect this is some hardware or bios firmware issue (i.e probably some internal timer is shutting down laptop and putting the laptop into sleep may reinitialize the timer). Any idea how to resolve this problem? As another try, I want to flash the bios firmware, but I can't find any link in lenovo support center to get bios firmware for Lenovo Ideapad Flex 15.  Any help is highly appreciated. My BIOS version: 8ACN34WW Thanks/Babu

Hi guys; I have the  Flex and I wanna change the HDD for a SSD and max out the RAM. How tough is this to do? I've worked on PCs and Laptops before..Firstly, will any 2.5 SATA2 SSD do?Secondly, the ram is 204pin DDR3 1333mhz right?Finally, does anyone have a quick readthrough of how to open it up and add these? Most laptops Ive worked on had access at the bottom, but , obviously this doesnt, hesistant to unscrew everything and just lift off the Keyboard in hope.Thnaks for loking guys.

No, some SSDs are incompatible, and there is no compatibility list. Crucial mx100 and Intel 530, for example, turned out to be incompatible.

I just got a new laptop last week, and i got the pen, but i am having issues with the sensitivity. I don't know if i accidently un-installed a driver for the pen, but all i have is the wacom pen desktop app for it. I've tried it in Paint 3D and the sketchpad, and still no sensitivity. I am trying to also work with Paint tool SAI, and it is not working for that either. I've tried everything to fix this, and i just can not. The pen works by itself, but i need sensitivity for me to work with my artwork properly. Please Help!

Hi all. So 2 days ago I was using the laptop for some course work, I then went asleep for maybe 2 hours and when I woke up I was unable to use the touchpad or kyboard. Now I had this issue before but it seemed to fix itself after a day or two. So far I have reset the computer while keeping all my own files, updated, deleted, reinstalled the drivers multiple times, removed the keypad to ensure the ribbon wasn't loose etc etc. I have since been able to get the touchpad to work by messing with the drivers but the keyboard remains the same. I oticed I am able to use it when either the laptop is held at an angle or if the screen if opened up almost flat. I'm guessing this is a driver issue but I can't for the life of me figure out how to resolve this. The laptop is a few years old so no warranty. I've done a lot of reading online about this issue and it seems many people have had the same problem but no posts gave me any real solution. Any help is very much appreciated. I relly don't know what to do now.

I spilled water on my laptop a few days ago. My screen was fine at first, but then (I assume) water got into some part of the hardware. Now the display is barely visible. I think it could be the inverter board that was affected, but I want to know how to fix it/what part(s) I need.In addition, my keyboard doesn't work. The touchscreen keyboard doesn't work either. I can tap on the keys, but nothing shows up. What is affected so that I can't even use the touchscreen keyboard? Any advice would be much appreciated.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 14-- screen dim, keyboard not working

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Water spilled into a laptop can cause a variety of problems as well as short  circuits.  It would be difficult to pin point exactly where your problems lie.  I suspect though that laptop isn't thoroughly dried out yet which maybe part of the problem.  I would suggest you open it up and let it continue to dry out, before proceeding further.  For your reference here is a link to your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual.......

Hello, I have had the laptop for nearly a year, still under warranty and, today, some keys stopped working on the keyboard, more concretly: 5 6 F1 F2 ? '  and CTRL (LEFT) keys (written with the touchscreen). The last time it worked I was using it in class taking some notes and those aforementioned keys were working. Once I finished, packed the laptop into the cover, and into the bag. ten minutes later I took it out in the library and they did not work.No water spilling had occurred (it was dry and the bag was dry too). And also there were no hits to the terminal. They just seemed to stop working, the pressure input feels pretty the same, so they are not stuck by any material underneath. I tried reinstalling the drives (through the hardware management), checked all options in keyboard assesment....tried with safe mode, still do not work.  Could it be some defect and should call for a replacement? Thanks beforehand.

Welcome to the Forums Bevvy! 
 
Press Windows+X.
- Select Device Manager.
- Find the Touchscreen driver under Mice and Other Pointing Devices>USB Touchscreen Controller(A111).  You're going to uninstall this and check the box that says "Delete the driver software for this device".  Don't worry, it won't blow up your computer.
- Restart your computer.
- Re-open the Device Manager, and confirm that the Touchscreen is now listed under Human Interface Devices.

Right now I'm still working with Windows 8, because I don't want to change to Windows 10 untill this is fixed. It should work in Windows 8, so changing to Windows 10 shouldn't make a diffrence in the first place.
 
My microphone has worked, the problem is that it shuts off randomly. I don't know what I can do?

If the Touchscreen feature is detected, proceed to Step 2.
 
2. Press the Windows key? +R, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter. On the Device Manager, navigate to the Human Interface Devices section and uninstall anything that says HID-compliant device (this is the driver that controls the touchscreen). When finished, reboot the system and observe.
 
3. If the Touchscreen is still not working, hold the Shift Key and hit the restart button inside Windows and you should be able to see the image below then try to tap on the screen to test and observe. I

I'm using windows 8.1, Lenovo G505s laptop. Recently I got replacement from Lenovo regarding touchpad after that this Fn(F7) touchpad enable/disable not working. This is happening only when I installied touchpad driver provided by lenovo and works well with standard microsoft driver (Ofcourse, no multigesture support with that driver). We perfomed following operations:1. HotKey mode enable/disable in BIOS2.Reinstallation of OS3. Reinstallation of driver(manually) All cases with microsoft driver this function working but with touchpad driver it is not working. It's almost 90days (88thday) daily contacting both Lenovo customer support and service center people but no use. If anybody having this problem and have a solution please share! (My machine under warranty!)

Answer:G505s - Touchpad hot key function not working with lenovo driver

hi phani_kumar,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
AFAIK, the hotkey for the Touchpad is F6 (hotkey mode is disabled in the BIOS).
  - Link to picture
 
If you already tried that though, can you consider the following:
1. Uninstall the Touchpad and the Lenovo Energy Managerment Driver from the Control Panel (icon views ) > Programs and Features
 
2. Install the following Win8 Drivers:
 
Lenovo Energy Management Driver for Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit)
Touchpad Driver (Synaptics, Elan) for Windows 8 (64-bit)
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

Hey - quick question. When I put my Lenovo X1 Yoga (2016 model) to sleep, whether via the start menu or the power button, it doesn't wake correctly. Usually it should display the lock screen when the mouse is moved or power button pressed and I then sign in. However, my PC instantly goes back to the desktop. Hence, if I put it to sleep and walk off, anyone could open the lid and instantly access my documents.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

Hi RK047,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that the Brightness feature is not working as expected in your Z510 Laptop. Hence, I would suggest un-install the display driver and also the LEM (Lenovo Energy Management) installed in your computer and the install them all again in administrator mode. While installing the driver right click on the downloaded file and select ?Run as administrator? option to get it installed without any error. Below is the link to download the same:

Hi community. This is my first post here, so please bear with me. I just installed Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit on my new T530. I used the upgrader to install all drivers and most software components. However the function keys, osd and the mute button do not work. I searched the forums and found a thread explaining the dependencies. I seem to have all the required software installed. However the processes for the function keys are not running. I checked the services and tracked down the error to the ThinkPad PM service. It fails to start with Error 2: "The system cannot find the file specified". However the file in question "System32/ibmpmsvc.exe" is present in the system32 directory. This is likely related to another oddity. Solution center identified an unknown device. It's located under system devices. Status is "working properly" though. It's the ACPI\LEN0068 which I understand is the PM device. There are two driver versions in the driver matrix for the PM device. I tried both with and without prior deinstallation of the device but no luck. I unsuccessfully tried to find more detailed information in the Windows event log. Likely I don't know where to look exactly though. I'm running out of ideas. Any suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks, Richard

Hi!  I do have trouble with a Lenovo Flex 2-14 (Model 20404).The Lenovo turns on, shows the Levono Boot screen and finishes with a black screen.  - I am able to enter the Bios (working screen)- I am able to run the internal recovery with a working screen - after recovery and a new boot up - the screens gets black again  How is that possible? I am not able to boot from a usb-stick (with working Linux or Windows installation - tested on other systems) cause I get a black screen (the USB is being recognized).  So... what are the next steps? This seems wierd, since the screen itself seems to work. I found some forum-topics saying it is a GPU-failure. Maybe thats the case?  I would appreciate any support!

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 aliir. It may be caused by several problems. You can try with diagnostic test of modules by Lenovo Solution Center.

I was wondering if anyone else has similar issues. I am using the laptop for text editing, watching a few videos online, nothing unsual or heavy. I have had two occaisions when I was either just checking my email on the web browser and the second when only the system was running and a few text files (notepad++) were open!The laptop showed a blue screen with reporting Windows kernel error (41) and that it had to restart. After the second time, I rebooted the laptop and copied the details of the error (which are below, see Note 1). I have noticed that the battery lasts for just under 3 hours (brightnes 25%, with notepad++ running), whereas Lenovo states 9 hours!! I have not made any hardware changes or drastic changes to the Windows 8.1 operating system. On the first start up Lenovo asked me to update the BIOS firmware, which I did. I updated the Windows 8.1 operating system. I uninstalled numerous apps in the metro Windows, and I have installed Kingsoft Office suite, Notepad ++, Itunes (via the PC app store), VLC and speccy. After searching for solutions and potential cause for the shutdown, I tested the ram (ran the memory test, 2 passes) and no issues.I am not using any external USB devices.

I have a Flex 3 that is only 4 months old and notice that even when the laptop is totally off (powered down, no lights on, not hibernate or sleep) after a day or two the batter charge upon bootup has gone down significantly. I am talking a reduction of say 40%. I am under warranty and I have to run this "Battery gauge reset" routine and do a few other checks before they replace the battery.  Although I can't imagine how looking at windows power options can impact what the battery draw is while the unit is OFF and windows is not running....but guess they have to go through their script. Anyway my question is on this Battery Gauge reset.  I have read things where this takes all night or something and people have to turn sleep mode off on their laptop? That is not in the official instructions so for those that have had this issue or run the reset do you just "press the button" or do I need to make sure the laptop stays awake.Also, what is it actually doing?? Is this type of battery drain a known issue?  To me it sure seems like just a bad battery....Thanks,BJBBJB

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

Welcome to SevenForums lovelymoon.

You can do this via Power Options in Control Panel.

Start > Control Panel > Search for Power Options > Edit Power Settings > Change Advanced Power Settings.

Then scroll down to 'Power buttons and lid' Then from the drop down menu click Hibernate.

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 am looking to get a decent stylus so I can take better notes using my Flex 4, but I have found that none of the active stylus on Amazon say that they work specifically for the Flex 4. I contacted support through web chat earlier and they informed me that if it says Lenovo Yoga 900, it should work. If it's marked for the Yoga 900s, would it still work? Does anyone happen to have a suggestion for a stylus that will be primarily used for taking notes and writing in general?

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,
