U530 touch laptop, WiFi extremely slow

Question: U530 touch laptop, WiFi extremely slow

Just received my new laptop last week. Over the course of the week, i noticed slow website loading, a 2.2mb fil taking 2 mins to download. I went to speedtest.net and shocked to see the download speeds from .09mb - 5.43mb. I have a 110MB down, 40MB up connection. So i tested this with my other laptop and getting close to 30MB's better and expected. I called Lenovo's tech suport they remoted into my machine and changed some configs in the advanced settings window of my adapter (Intel Wireless-N 7260). Reboot, not any better. Then they had me change the channel on my router from Auto to channel 9. Rebooted the router and tested again and now I am getting between 12-21mb and 7mb up. After we disconnected thinking everything was good now my dell latptop now is registering at 66-69MB down and 38-41mb up. So the channel change made everything faster but now I am left wondering what is wrong with my new Lenovo U530, specs says it up to a 300mb connection, and mind you when you check the connection in networking and shaing, it says its connected at 144mbps... what gives. I updated the BIOS on the machine, and even downloaded the new prowireless software from intels site but still getting 12mb-20mb download. Is anyone else having this eperience or had it and know the fix? Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks in advanced. John

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 all, this looks like a pretty good place to ask for some advice, so thanks for the help in advance.

I purchased an HP laptop today (http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0665000FS10107496&catid=)
and everything is running smoothly on it with no problems, except for the wireless internet. I usually get a max of around 120kbs on an average download on my old XP, but on my new Vista im getting 30kbs max. I found a few suggestions online and disabled my firewall, uninstalled the trial norton antivirus and tried to install an old driver, but it barely improved at all.

It has an Intel PRO/Wireless 4965AGN wireless card. Any suggestions on improving the speed? Heres what i got when i ran ipconfig /all:

Hi, recently the wifi on my laptop has been extremely slow and disconnects quite often (still shows as connected but says no internet) however the same wifi on my phone experiences no such issues. I was considering reinstalling windows to see if that fixes it but I'd rather avoid having to do that.
My wifi package is 100mb/s but on my laptop it ranges from a few mb to 20 or so if I'm lucky, is there any way to fix this without reinstalling windows & would that even solve the issue?
Thanks

Machine: Lenovo IdeaPad U530 Touch
 
Symptoms: pushing the power button turns the computer on for approximately 1 second.  Power button lights, backlit keyboard lights, fan starts up, then after one second, everything turns off.  When plugged in, the battery light is lit.
 
What I've already tried:
* The magic code - unplug adapter, disconnect the battery and press the power button 10 times, then hold it for 60 seconds. Then restart as normal.
* Leaving it plugged in for a day.
* Leaving it unplugged for a month.
* Reseat the RAM
* Replace the RAM with known working stick.
* Removing the RAM completely.
* Reseat the hard drive.
* Replace the hard drive with a HD from another Lenovo laptop.
* Removing the HD completely.
* Reseat the display cable where it connects to MB.
* Hold down enter while hitting the power button
* Tilting the laptop 45 while hitting the power button.
*Praying and offering to never look at porn again if it would just boot.
 
None of these had any effect.  Exact same process every time: powers on for one second, then powers off.
 
I've smelled the MB for any signs of fried components.  Nothing.  Everything looks good on the inside.
 
Possibly related: before this, I was having terrible times with the boot process.  System would take forever to boot, then blue screen, saying there was a problem and the system would reboot for me, then it would reboot as normal and everything would be fine.  ... Read more

Answer:U530 Touch - Laptop won't turn on

Hello Jsfrench,Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Try to see if you have any recovery media, if you are able to install an older OS on the unit, I had something similar happen, but in my case, the unit would not boot after trying to install Win 7 on it, Win 8.1 seemed to have fixed it.
 
Otherwise, by the sound of things you pretty much tried everything, including prayers
 
 If these steps do not work you can call your local Lenovo support line for a potential repair. Below is the link to the phone list where you can find these numbers
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

I got this laptop about a month & 1/2 ago.  Its been working fine and I installed the latest Windows 8.1 updates yesterday but today the Ideapad won't shut off.  It says Shutting down.... and the screen goes back but the power button stays on.  Is there anything I can do to fix this?  I ran checkdisk at the dos prompt and I thought that helped.

So when I first turn on the laptop(IdeaPad U530 Touch), I was required to register for a outlook account. Ever since then I have to login to that account to enter. I simply want to turn on my computer and not have to use a sign-in password each time. Would love a clear answer. Thank you for your time.

How do I upgrade the wireless adapter from an N type to something that can support a higher download speed?  

Answer:U530 Touch Laptop (ideapad) Wireless Adapter Upgrade

Hi lacord01 ,
 
Greetings.
 
Checking on the hardware manual (item 12 page 63) for OEM recommended WLAN card but seems do not offer faster AC 5Ghz card. Modifying BIOS would be risky to remove the whitelist for the model.
 
12 WLAN 2x2 BGN+BT4.0 Intel 7260BN 2x2BN+BT PCIE HMC20200412 N12 WLAN Cbt BCM943228HMB 2x2ABGN+BT4.0 HMC 20200221 N12 WLAN Liteon WB222 2x2ABGN+BT4.0 HMC 20200225 N
 
Other claims for upgrade on this discussion. Having a spare to test would be handy but can not guarantee it since it is outside OEM recommendation. Otherwise using an external USB AC wlan adapter can still be an option.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

Over the past two weeks I have been troubleshooting an U530 Touch Laptop (ideapad) - Type 80AS. The problem that im experiencing is a black screen on startup. Initially I thought that it mightve been a display driver issue, I went into safe mode and installed the said drivers and it worked for a little while until about a week later.(Drivers were from Lenovo website other drivers didnt seem to work). I am kind of confused of what could be the problem, perhaps hardware? I would appreciate any input or suggestions. I have tried using an alternate monitor and at times it works for a while but other times it wouldnt recieve any signal. I am running Windows 8.1 and can still boot into safe mode,  These are some things that I have tried:Reinstalling the entire OS from the Lenovo backup - this worked on the intitial startup, on reboot however black screen.Reinstalling drivers - Worked momentarily on and off, moderate success. Trying to login from the blackscreen doesnt workI have disabled Windows from automatically installing driver updates *Off topic- the hinges on the laptop screen have broken off, have tried to put it together with epoxy, hot glue, superglue and all have failed. (Warranty is expired)

I have an Ideapad U530 Touch running windows 8.1. I accidentially disabled the Nvidia GeForce GT730M graphics card and no I cannot get it back. When I initially disabled like an idiot I lost most video capabilities as the only thing I saw was a very dark screen. I rebooted and the computer would just load to a blue screen. I was able to get into BIOS and change to UMA only which allowed me to at least get back on the computer. However, now the Nvidia card is not being detected as being on the computer. Is there a way to re-enable it? The display is now running on the Intel set up but it is very fuzzy and I would prefer to have it back running like it used to. Thanks

Answer:Nvidia GeForce GT730M Graphic Card No longer Detected on Lenovo Ideapad U530 Touch Laptop

Hi adlb1300,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Switching to UMA will disable it physically leaving it undetected by the computer.
   Switch it back to Switchable or auto then I suggest you perform a Factory recovery to have the proper dirver on it.
Afte switching it back to Switchable in BIOS Turn the system OFF and press the Onekey Recovery Button to boot into recovery.

I just bought this computer a few days ago. It is a Toshiba Satellite C885D-S5116. I'm not sure what router i have. But please help, I've tried searching for multiple things to speed up the wifi some how, but i feel like it actually made it worse. On my windows 7 laptop i could actually get like 10 mbps download speed, but now when i did a speed test i've gotten as low as .2 mbps and 70+ ping... I seriously don't know what to do anymore. My wireless adapter is a Realtek RTL8188CE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC. Whenever i try to update my driver, it doesn't seem to help at all saying its already the most updated. I have tried switiching to high energy performance battery. I have tried everything even trying to troubleshoot.

I have even tried ipconfig /flushdns in Cmd prompt. In cmd prompt i have also tried "netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled". I don't know what else to try anymore. I am totally out of options, and with speeds @ .2 mbps, this will definitely not work out. Someone please help!
What's even worse is when i try to watch even youtube videos it automatically puts me on 144p and then even @ 144p it has to buffer....

I'm on a Toshiba Satellite C870-1HN;
WiFi adapter: Realtek RTL8723AE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E network interface;
OS: Windows 8.1 Home;
Brand new laptop.

95% of the time I cannot do anything on the network: I can't browse the internet, I can't transfer files between this laptop and another on the network, etc. The task manager network performance indicates 0 kbps sent, 0 kbps received. Occasionally there might be a slight change: sometimes 8 kbps, sometimes as much as 100 kbps. Even then, websites load extremely slow (even in the dial-up era it didn't take 30 minutes to load a website...)

The other 5% of the time I get download speeds of 2mbps or above. This is very random. I just tried transfering a 10mb file and for the first 20 minutes it did nothing, then it jumped to 1.5mbps, transfered most of the file in 10 seconds, then it got back to 0 kbps and 10 minutes later the remainder of the file got transfered in 1 second.
Other computers on the network (running windows 7 or below) have no issues at all.

The signal strength always reads 5/5 bars. Oddly enough, if I disconnect, the network will show up having 3/5 bars. I reconnect again, and I get full signal strength (but 0 kbps). The status is "Connected" (no "Limited Access" or anything, just "Connected")

The network speed reeds anywhere between 24.0 mbps to 56.0 mbps (and 100 mbps if next to the router)

Hello everyone, I recently purchased this laptop (about 6 hrs ago) and have been having issues with the wifi. The speeds vary between 20k to 200kbps, but my net is supposed to be 65mbps. My other laptop, the one that this replaced, is running at a constant 2.5 to 3.5mbps and my other devices are fine as well. I've had to hook up an ethernet cable just to surf the internet and try and figure this out. I've done about 5 hrs worth of research to see if I can figure out what's wrong, and have only found things to do with drivers or the windows 10 update. As far as drivers go, my computer says it has all the latast ones, so I'm at a loss. Has anyone had this problem yet and if so how did you fix it? Thanks for the help!

Ive only had this laptop for 3 days and I'm ripping my hair out with it already. the AC3160 wifi card/chip just isn't consistent with speeds or settings.Everyone else in the house, either on laptops, PCs or phones are getting 30mb to 37mg download speed, my old laptop gets 35mb download speed.I am only 10 feet away from the router which is a home hub 5 from BT, and I get between 2mb and 8mb. I have updated drivers, rolled back drivers, changed settings. I have spent the last 2 days searching the internet for a fix! sometimes I can get 35mb, and then when I reboot the laptop I'm back down to anything between 2mb and 8mb.... its really getting annoying now.

Answer:Lenovo Y70-70 wifi extremely slow

Just wanted to bump this up and also say that I have the 5.2GHz running at around 28mb-35mb, by setting the 5ghz in the router to a/n instead of a/n/ac I have no idea why that has made things better though (tech stuff isn't my kind of thing, but I'm at the stage where I'm just altering stuff in case it might have a positive impact) so better speed, but still very inconsistent, the speed jumps up and down, it isn't constant. The 2.4ghz is still low speeds, and very inconsistent. I have a feeling that its something to do with the wifi card not being fully compatible with the router, how frustrating, paying almost 1k for a laptop and it has this problem.

I first noticed the issue earlier when I was trying to play DOTA2 for the first time today (though after thinking about it, it has been going on for about a week...causing me to try a new AV program a few days ago). Anyway, today I noticed that I was getting random lag spikes into the 1000ms range. To test to see if it was just my PC, I used my wife's laptop and ran SpeedTest. Everything came back normal (20 down /10 up). I went back to my PC and tried to run SpeedTest and I can't even get it to finish a test. Every once in a while it will get past pinging the server and show a d/l speed of only 3Mbps. I've never had an issue before, and the only thing I've done recently is add 2 more sticks of RAM. Anyone have any ideas of where I should start trying to fix the problem?

PC specs are in my signature. Using Linksys WMP600N wi-fi adapter.

edit: I've tried the basic stuff like restarting the PC, updating the device drivers, etc.
 

Answer:Extremely slow internet (wifi)

Wire directly into your router and see what your speeds are like, then if that doest work wire directly to your modem. Use process of elimination.

Hi all,I have Thinkpad T460s, Windows 10, WiFi adapter is Intel AC 8260, driver is 19.50.1 - latest.Router is Asus RT-AC88U, internet link 150Mbps.From few days I'm experiencing extremely slow connection/transfer speeds, like 100Kbs. I'm connected to 5GHz band.  I tried resetting TCP/IP stack, reinstalling the driver, rebooting the router, none of that helped. I don't have antivirus or external firewall installed.An Ipad which is sitting next to my laptop is hitting easily 90-100Mbps.However when I connected the laptop to my work wifi, it appers to work normally, so logically it is something between Asus and Intel module in thinkpad.Any ideas what can I do to find out what is happening - and solve the issue?many thanks for any inputChris

Is your wireless router supplied by your ISP? Or did you buy it retail? What BIOS version is currently installed on you laptop? What BIOS version is designated as the latest version on Acer's website? Does the problem occur when you use other people's wifi such as a friend, relative or neighbor?  Have you tested it somewhere besides your home? Does Acer's website list an updated wireless driver for your computer? http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

I recently decided to setup my hardware I bought few months ago.
I decided to get rid of the wifi router I was using(wndr3700v1) and setup a Uniquiti EdgeRouter lite and an open mesh AP(mr1750). I decided to use my wifi router as a temp switch only until I got a new switch. So I reset the wifi router,setup the AP and router and tested the speed and it went dropped to about 1/3 of the speeds I was getting with the wifi router. I tested the speed via Ethernet directly with the edgerouter and the temp switch and the speeds were great about 230mbps. I tried rebooting everything but that didn't help. I then tried to reconfigure the wifi router to also use the wifi part of it to see if my open mesh AP was at fault but no the wifi router speeds were also down.
I'm not sure what is the issue and would like some recommendations on how to troubleshoot this issue.
I know my wifi speeds won't match my wired speeds but I was consistently getting about 170-190mbps on 5ghz wifi and it's now down to 30-50mbps

I just bought a new Pavilion 15-au063nr last week.  The WiFi speed is unbearably slow.  I have 150MB internet service (FiOS).  All of my other devices connect at full speed.  The download speed on the HP on www.speedtest.net is only 2-4 MB, and upload speed is only 30-45 MB.  My iPad does close to 150MB download and upload speed.  The problem occurs on other networks, not just mine, so it is not my router, although I did try rebooting it but that did not change the speed. If I connect the HP Pavilion directly to the router with a CAT-5 cable and disable WiFi, I get full speed of near 100MB download and upload speeds. This is very frustrating, a new computer should perform better than this.  I am ready to return it and get a Dell if this cannot be resolved in a timely manner.

Hello,  Two days ago I bought the Lenovo U430 touch. After I started the Notebook the first time, I started immediately the Windows 10 upgrade. Afterwards I made a wifi speedtest. I have a VDSL 50 internet connection by Telekom. On my Desktop PC i have usually Download Speedrates from about 43 Mbit/s. But with my Lenovo U430 i have only 0,1 to 10 Mbit/s. That's extremely slow for me. I also updated the Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260 with the newest Drivers from Intel. I have installed the 18.33.0.2 version, but that neither didn't change anything. I have still only a maximum download Speed of 10 Mbit/s . I also tried to start the U430 with Ubuntu and test there the Wifi Speed, but also on Ubuntu I had only a maximum Download Speed of 10 Mbit/s. So what can I do to improve my download speed. Thank you in andance for your replies

Answer:Lenovo U430 Wifi extremely slow

I fixed my problem with the slow wifi by myself. After i browsed "thousands" of panels. I found a useful entry. There was listed, that you should change the frequency of your router. So I did and spontaneously the download speed increased to 43 Mbit/s. The router sended before in 2.4 Ghz and  5.0 Ghz at the same time. I changed my router configuration to only 2.4 Ghz and that fixed my problem.Maybe that's is helpful for someone else, who has the same Problem like me.

I recently brought a Lenovo Flex 3 1480 model (Windows 10, i7-6500U Processor). Everything worked fine except the Wifi which was extremely slow(2Mbps). The Dowload speed for my other HP laptop that was 20Mpbs!. However when i connected by flex 3 machine to the LAN cable, it was able to give me 20Mbps download speed. I decided to get my laptop replaced. I got my replacement laptop yesterday and it has the same exact Wifi problem.  Troubleshooting steps that I tried:1. Updated the network card drivers2. Uninstalled and reinstalled the atheros driver software Is anybody else facing this issue? Please let me know if there are any solutions for this problem.

Answer:Flex 3 1480 Wifi issue: Extremely slow! Please help

I'm having the same exact issue. I know it is a hardware issue because the problem persists after I reinstalled drivers, and even the OS. I ruled out router issues because my other wireless devices function just fine.

Hi all, I deleted ALL the partitions and installed completely new windows 7(I know this is stupid, should save all the drivers which I didn't....so I have to reinstall all the drivers again). However, after i installed the wireless driver, it has access to the internet but with extremely low speed. Once I plug in the ethernet cable and disconnect the WIFI, the speed gets back to normal. Anyone knows what's going on here??? I have no idea how to solve this issue.  Thanks in advance. Hugh

Hi, over the past couple of days I've been receiving some extremely bad wifi. My download peaks at around 0.04Mbps, my upload peaks at around 4Mbps and my ms jitters constantly. It all started when I was deleting a few background processes on my task manager. Assuming that was the problem, I factory reset my PC. It just got worse.... My PC constantly disconnects me from my wifi, and when I get the error message: "Can't connect to this network", it removes all of my wifi networks and changes to a red X. I constantly get poor internet, even though everywhere in the house is fine - Plus, it takes me HOURS to download 10 - 60MB files... Not only that, but my wifi bars keep jittering from 2, to 5, to 3, to 1, to 5 again. I don't know what's going on, but I need some help. I've tried everything

Hello: I was using my U530 Touch and suddenly it shut off. It will not turn back on, either. I was browsing the internet at the time, not overworking it to my knowledge. I didn't spill anything on it, drop it, or do anything recently of which I'm aware that would cause some sort of effect. I didn't notice it overheating. The A/C adaptor was plugged in at the time, and now, the charging light for the battery is in fact the only thing that will function. I assume it's a hardware issue, given the complete lack of response, but if it's possible that there's some way to wake it up into a safe mode and address it from there, I'd be happy to try. Any ideas on what's happened here or any at-home fixes I can try? Thanks.

I just purchased this laptop in December with no warranty. Sigh. My son was using it and broke the screen. I tried to have a local guy replace the screen and he wasn't able to, so he sent it to Lenovo to look at. They want to charge $399 to replace the screen. This seems quite high to me and I'm wondering if I'm better off continuing to look for someone local to do it... though I do know the guy I originally gave it to comes highly recommended. I just wonder if the technology is too new and the screens are hard to come by?

I bought this U530 Touch from a friend about a year ago, if I remember correctly. I'm aware I am out of warranty, but I have had an issue with it. If I have the A/C charger plugged in and try to play just about any game, Intel Extreme Tuning Utility says the computer is thermal throttling to ~97%, despite temperatures in the mid 40 degrees Celcius. If I unplug the A/C charger, performance is back to normal. As I game alot, It's really frustrating to only be able to play for maybe an hour, then have to charge the battery. Playing games with the charger plugged in gives a near 50% drop in framerate. I have not changed anything with Intel Extreme Tuning Utility; I've only used it to monitor performance.Is this something I can fix, or is it a hardware issue?

I see that other users have had the same issue as what I am having. 9 months after my warranty expired my hinge failed and ripped the plastic off the screen. It was just stuck and was pulling on the screen plastic. My screen no longer comes on. My computer is not yet 2 years old!When I tried calling customer service (in Phillipines - this is how you know a company gave up), everyone pretended to not know anything about this known issue. I requested manager call back several times, and it's been 2 weeks no call back!Furthermore, someone is telling my extended warranty through Visa that this is accidental damage, and you know nothing about this problem, so now they won't cover the damage either.I demand something in writing saying this is a known issue, so that I can at least get it covered though my extended warranty! You clearly know about it, there are quite a few forum posts about it!Last effort, then class action!Thx.

I recently purchased a U530 Touch from my local Best Buy. I have received THREE faulty units. The first one had a bent in corner like it was dropped in manufacturing, the second one had two marks that looked like someone had manually tried to pry the screen away from the casing on both sides of the bottom of the screen, and the third one has a defective VERY noisy fan. Now...I returned the first two to Best Buy in hopes of eventually getting a WORKING laptop. Well that didn't happen. So I'm dealing directly with the manufacturer in hopes that they can give me what I paid for. Now...the problem is...I've wasted a LOT of gas driving back and forth to Best Buy returning these laptops, and now I'm being made responsible to pay for the shipping of the laptop to Lenovo's service center (which was $32.30 mind you). How is it that I can pay $820 for a BRAND new laptop...get THREE broken ones, and am STILL responsible for shipping it back to Lenovo? This is absurd and very bad business in my opinion. I didn't do anything wrong by purchasing a new laptop. This is a Lenovo issue and I feel they should take the loss here, not me. What am I supposed to do to get help here? There is no e-mail on the site to report an issue. Only a service phone number to create a ticket which isn't what I need. Can someone please help me?

Hi everybody,I was quite happy with my Lenovo Ultrabook, at least until today.Since this is not the first post about this topic, I want to assure you that I have googled for it at least for some time,but haven't found any solutions / the exact same problem.What happened:I was gaming with a few friends, when suddenly the audio driver seemed to crash, meaning in couldn't hear anything, anywhere.Thinking a quick restart could resolve this issue, I tried to simply reboot the laptop, but it somehow didn't start up.So far the same as in many other posts, although:When I pressed the power button for a few seconds to completely shut it off, and started it again,I noticed, that the screen is somehow "flickering" on and off. It can barely be seen (imagine it turned off, and then the background LEDs turned on on the lowest brightness), with the duration of close to 1 second.If I let the laptop run for awhile, at some point even the CPU fan starts running, although only for 1-2 minutes.Besides, the Power LED is permanently on, but no background lighting for the keyboard (which was turned on before I shut down).Also, I already tried opening the laptop, disconnecting the battery (and the round battery, whatever this one is called), disconnecting the SSD.The one thing I couldn't find was the connection of the display (I'm not sure if it is only this greyish cable on the right side, because there are also some other cables running towards the display, which i couldn't disconnect).After disco...

Hello, I have a Lenovo U530 touch and I have some questions about it. I thought this is the best place to ask them and I hope someone can answer some of them if not all. 1. This notebook was bought for me from Germany and I live in romania. Is the warranty still available here? 2. In this model, the vents are at the back of the notebook, somewhat facing the screen. When in full load, the plastic at the bottom of the screen gets pretty hot, can this affect the screen itself or the touchscreen? If yes, this is a poor desing, but can I do something about it? 3. On the website it is advertised that the battery lasts up to 10h. I am not unrealistic, but mine does not last past 4 - 4,5h. Is something wrong with my battery or is was just false advertising? What is the real life expectancy of the battery? 4. My model came with 256GB SSD, but I've read that it also has a M.2 slot. Would it be wiser to put a 128GB SSD in the M.2 slot and a 750GB HDD in the normal slot, in terms of speed and capacity? Thas't about all for now. I am very pleased with this notebook, but I want to find more about it so I know how to take care of it. Hope someone answers and thanks in advance for those who do!

Answer:Lenovo U530 touch questions

Oh, and another thing I noticed, from the left side of the notebook comes a static noise someimes, almost sounds like briefly interrupting electricity wires. I don't know how to describe it, but is it normal?

I am downloading 15-20 where as old toshiba next to it is downloading 60 easily.   I thought my first computer was defective, because I called support and they had me delete out a wifi driver and reinstall.  Still same speed.  I returned first computer, bought identical computer arrived today and still slow wifi connection. This has to be something with lenova 70 touch's overall?  Is there anything I can do to improve the wifi speeds or do I need to return this one as well. Thanks!

Yesterday at night i was normally using my laptop when it started making a really loud fan noise (see video). it normally makes quite a loud noise but this time it was really loud. I used the dust removal but it made no difference and when i shut it down it stopped. using it now it hasnt been making the loud sound so i think it mightve been a one off  I always keep it flat on a table so that might have something to do with it and the laptop is out of warranty. I have been thinking about opening the back and cleaning but i dont have the right screwdriver so that will have to wait.another thing - fan dust removal doesnt seem to reduce noise at all.what it usually sounds like

Hi all, I purchased my U530 Touch laptop in January of 2015, then about a year later I had the infamous "broken hinge" issue that a lot of these laptops seem to suffer from. I sent it in to Lenovo and had it fixed though, and haven't had any other issue with it until now. The problem I am now experiencing is a very noticable flickering that moves from the bottom to the top of the screen. Changing the refresh rate only seems to change the rate at which the flickering moves. I noticed that the glossy black portion of the hinge seemed to have a slighly loose feel, and saw the screen flickering issue go away when I pressed into the hinge in the right place. You can feel and hear the plastic moving when pressing into the hinge. If you fiddle with it enough you can get it to a state where the screen doesn't flicker, but it's not an ideal solution. If the laptop gets even slightly bumped or moved, the flickering will come back. Any help with this issue would be much appreciated.

Answer:Problems with touch screen in ideapad U530

Hi Adrileb,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your U530 Laptop touch screen is not working as expected even after performing ?System Restore? in the computer, I suggest re-installing display driver from our Support Website and check if the issue persists and 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 relevant drivers for U530:

Answer:IdeaPad U530 Touch Hinge struck.

Reply from Lenovo Support for my caseWe have received your case that is tied to machine with serial # QBXXXXXXXX. We are currently showing that machine went out of warranty on 7/4/2015. Due to the extreme length since it went out of warranty. At this time Lenovo is not able to offer a free repair on this machine. If we were maybe a few months after it went out of warranty we might have been able to assist. But due to the fact that we are now 11 months out of warranty and we can't cover a machine for such an extended period of time. There has to be a definite end to the warranty. At this time Lenovo will not take any further action on this case. My Response to above messageThank you for your response and looking into this issue at your earliest.Please refer to link here which has listed this issue as widespread issue for Ideapad U530 model and has offered to repair the laptop. Moreover this issue has been widespread issue on your other laptop models as well like U310, U310 touch and U410, U410 touch. This shows that there is design flaw in all of these laptops. Since this is design flaw at company end it will manifest sometime or other. In my case it has happened late since I have been using this laptop with more care comparative to other users who are having same issue earlier in the life of laptop. It is not expected of world class company like Lenovo to keep manufacturing such defective laptop.I have other Lenovo T430 purchased after 3 months of this laptop and it does... Read more

So this Lenovo was repaired before because the keyboard was constantly pressing 'q' and it made the computer impossible to use. So they repaired it under warranty as I obviously hadn't done anything, cool right? Well they only repaired the top case, according to Lenovo. Ok, I think. That's fine. The issue is resolved. A little while later, my bracket key ( one on the right ) doesn't work. I use it occasionally for programming but it obviously isn't as used as other keys. It just sticks and sometimes continously presses itself for no reason.  Lenovo wants me to ship it back again to possibly replace keyboard. I don't wanna ship it off again for ONE key. Are there any places that offer U530 touch replacement keys? I can't find it anywhere...not even the laptop key websites have it. It's like the most elusive thing in the world. I asked Lenovo and they said they can't give you an individual key. I guess they hate saving money on shipping lol. So should I just send it in? It's a problem because it continously can type on the bracket key and makes work impossible.  Really disappointed in the quality of these computers. 

Answer:U530 Touch Keyboard Issue. Very Confused.

hi naw008,
 
Sorry to hear about your keyboard trouble.
 
As the U530 Touch is still under warranty, it's recommended that you send the unit for service again one more time to rectify the keyboard issues that you're having. Also, as per page 62 of the HMM, the keyboard is embedded on the bezel (upper case) and cannot be replaced separately (this is most likely the reason why there's no separate keyboard key for this unit).
 
- Link to picture
 
If it's inconvenient to send the unit in for service, you can try to temporarily disable the bracket key by using Sharpkeys and remap another key (eg  the "< >" keys) as a bracket key

Answer:Ideapad U530 Touch - Backlight Issues

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
Looking at pages 61 and 62 of your Hardware Maintenance Manual:
http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_u530touch_hmm.pdf the keyboard is integral to the upper base cover and is listed as a non-CRU (customer replaceable unit) part. In addition, replacing it appears to be a complete tear-down and rebuild of the machine.
 
Best advice is to call Service (contact info below), since I'd assume you're still under warranty.
 
Hope this helps.
Regards.

Happy New Year to all Lenovoites!! Recently bought an U530 touch ultrabook 59385621 with Haswell Core i7-4500u processor, 8GB RAM, 500 GB 5400 rpm HDD with built in 8gb Flash (for quick boot times) 1920x1080 10 point touchscreen, and the best (claim) of all 10 hrs of battery time (non realistic, only when computer is idle), but at least 6-8hrs of full HD playback time.Here's the thing, while all the above specs are awesome and definitely worth the price, the most crucial feature that I was really looking forward to was the 6-8 hrs of battery runtime.I am barely getting 3-4 hrs of battery life after 100% charge running basic web browsers, maybe a little pandora, working on word documents at 70% brightness, with bluetooth, intel smart connect and other battery draining programs turned off. I tried to reduce the brightness to 60% or less! but it puts a strain on the eyes.My lenovo is only three days old, I've already reset the battery gauge meter once, and I haven't found any improvement yet. The battery meter is unreliable, sometimes when I start up and have a 100%charge it shows 1.5 hrs left, after opening the web browser and doing my work, the estimated time switches to 4.5 and if I do something else it either goes up in estimate or goes down in estimate ( as per it's mood), is this how it is usually for everyone?

Some of the keys on my U530 get stuck in the "up" position, I have to press firmly to type the corresponding letter (and then I often get the letter twice). (No, I haven't spilled any liquids on it.) (Anyway, it's out of warranty.) Where could I get a replacement keyboard? I'm Canadian. Caveat: it's a French Canadian keyboard layout, so a U.S. keyboard will not fit. (Explanation: Non-U.S. keyboards typically have 1 or 2 more keys than U.S. keyboards, and in a U530 the shape and number of keys has to match exactly because each key has its "hole" in the laptop housing.)

Answer:Sticky keys on Ideapad U530 Touch

I would suggest calling Lenovo support. If you are under warranty, they should cover it for free, but if not, I believe they can sell you one. You can also source one from eBay, but they might be fake and less quality from Lenovo direct. Here's Lenovo's support address: http://support.lenovo.com

I recently purchased a U530 Touch and it says on the Lenovo website that it comes with Lenovo Cloud Storage.  It definitely has the Lenovo SugarSync app on it, but when I created a login on the SugarSync site, it said the 5GB is only for 90 days, which is their typical trial setup. So, do I have 5GB free cloud storage from Lenovo or not?  It wasn't advertised as "trial" on the Lenovo shopping site, but as free cloud storage.

Answer:U530 Touch and Lenovo Cloud Storage

hi gabbynikki,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
AFAIK, the free 5GB Lenovo Cloud Storage is not a trial period but a permanent 5GB free space provided by the Lenovo-Sugarsync partnership.(http://www.lenovo.com/cloud)
 
If you have created an ID via the Sugarsync site, try creating a Lenovo ID from this link and use it to login to preinstalled Lenovo Cloud Storage app.
 
As an alternative, you can also:
1. Download and install Lenovo Reach 
2. Use the Lenovo ID that you created to sign-in and access Lenovo Cloud Storave by Sugarsync

hi comp_user
 
Welcome to the forums and sorry to hear about your trouble.
 
Yes, the touchscreen can be disabled.
 
Try these steps:
1. Press the Windows key? +R, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter (this should open the Device Manager).
2. In the Device Manager, expand Human Interface Devices section and right click > disable all the HID-compliant device touch screen entry (this is the driver that controls the touchscreen).

When finished, try to use the touchscreen functionality and observe (you can reboot to verify it's disabled).

I notice that sometimes after waking the laptop after sleep mode the touch screen is unresponsive. After some Googling I saw that this appeared to be a driver or firmware issue (can't recall which one) with one of the Yoga computers. Is it possible that the U530 is having the same issue? If so, what is the software update that I should download?

Ok, I think I have this one fixed. I had to go into the device manager and enable "wireless-n" mode. for some reason it was off. This was also preventing me from accessing my 5g N band. Also, make sure you change the channel bandwidth from 20mhz to "auto" to increase the speed. Its beyond me why these settings where this way by default.

After searching the forum and knowledgebase, I didn't see an answer to my issue. I just got this U530 and wanted to use a dual monitor setup with a monitor that only supports DVI inputs (Samsung SyncMaster BX2335). I bought a cable for the purpose: an HDMI to DVI-D cable. I cannot seem to get the laptop to recognize that there is a monitor attached, however.  Is this a problem anyone else has had and solved? Am I going to have to use a port replicator instead or use some sort of USB 3 to DVI setup?

Answer:U530 Touch (1920x1080) HDMI to DVI Cable not working

hi radiotube,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
AFAIK, plugging-in the HDMI to DVI-D should automatically "clone" or "extend" the monitor's display to the Samsung external monitor. If you get a "no signal" from the external monitor, can you check in the U530's display settings, if the laptop is recognizing the Samsung monitor:
    - Sample image
 
If the Samsung monitor is not visible under the display settings, then there might be a problem with the cable. In this case,  I would try to use a different PC to test HDMI to DVI-D cable.
 
If the Samsung monitor is visoble under the display settings, try to lower the resolution on the laptop (eg. 1020x768). When done, install the Samsung Device Driver and match the resolution on the monitor by setting it also to 1020x768 and check if you can now see a display via clone or extended mode.

Because my computer is out of  warrenty for over a year the contact I had with Lenovo has proved to be useless.  I called on Monday 4/25/16 to be told that they could replace the hinges a one time courtesy repair because the hinges they put into this unit were not strong enough to hold the display and they were replacing them with new ones.  I was told I would be called in 3 business days for instructions on shipping.  Upday today 4/28/16 phone call from Lenovo telling me that because they don't make those parts anymore that I would not be eligible for any repairs.  She said the only thing they could do is offer me a 15% on the back end of a purchase from Lenovo for a new computer.  This was totally unacceptable to me and I told the woman I was livid to think a company this large could not make this right...If they knew these hinges were defective every single person should have been compensated for this defect.  Personally I will never buy another Lenovo product as long as I breathe!  Now to spend another $900.00 for a new computer is a HUGE expense.

Answer:My Lenovo U530 Touch 15.6" having unexpected problem with system.

Hi Ebnul3ee,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Your first move should be to confirm a hardware Failure,
   Turn OFF the computer and boot the system into BIOS that's (Pressing the OKR Button while the system is off to get the option)
     Select Enter set up or Set up utility.
     Now in the BIOS mode, Wait and check if the Problem will show there.
 
If Yes
 
    Second Move is to report this to the US Support Center so they have it on Record, 1-877-453-6686 
     Report the problem to them First and tell them you just to have it on record.
 
    Now Call Lenovo Support in Bangladesh
    AWSP Flora Limited:70-200-6853 88-0171-000-0000
    (Mobile) Email: [email protected]
    Let them know about the problem and ask them if this will supported in their end.
 
If Yes then it is your option to do so
 
If Not - Unfortunately but you will need to have it serviced through US under warranty claim or Have it serviced through Bangladesh but you will have to pay for it.
 
I hope this helps somehow

I have Photoshop CS6 installed on my U530.  I want to use the U530 touchscreen to 'paint' with Photoshop using my fingers on the touchscreen.Photoshop does not recognize the touchscreen movements as input, thus I cannot 'paint' with the paintbrush tool.I understand that Photoshop requires a specific type of touchscreen driver to interact with the program for pressure sensitivity and such. Photoshop is different from other programs in that respect, and I know that sometimes installing a different driver will allow the functionality. That process is done with Wacom tablets sometimes - updating to the Wacom driver instead of the standard/original driver.Is there a driver available that will allow the touchscreen to work with Photoshop on the U530?- also, I do not see the specific name of the touchscreen device in device manager, if you know which device the touchscreen is named, that would help me some.Thank youIs there a driver available that will allow the touchscreen to work with Photoshop on the U530?

I am getting ghost touches all over my touchscreen, plus the mouse barely works and the keyboard doesn't work at all when the ghost touches are present.  I am running on Windows 10 and have owned this laptop since May of 2014 (purchased new directly from Lenovo.com). This issue is getting worse and worse as time goes on.  Even when I disable the touchscreen capability (via Device Manager/Human Interface Devices) it is  not permanently disabled and it just comes back on randomly, without me enabling it again. If you could tell me a way to permanently disable the touch screen feature, at least that would resolve the main problem for now. Obviously I'd love for my touch screen to work properly though. I've been having this problem for many months now, though in the last month or two it's gotten a lot worse and a lot more frequent (at least once if not multiple times a day).  I am at my wit's end. Thank you.

The camera above the screen on my U530 touch captures images with a reddish tint.  This happens with the Windows camera app', web cam app's like ContaCam, and conferencing app's like Join.Me and Skype.  I haven't used the camera often, until now, so I have no idea when this started happening. In Device Manager, I deleted the camera device and deleted the drivers, rebooted, and the problem remained.  I went to Lenovo's support page for the camera, downloaded the driver file (ca08w8.exe) found there, and ran the installer.  The problem remains.  When I attach an external camera, the capture by the external camera is fine. I'd like to start using the camera for video conferencing, so a solution to this problem would be greatly appreciated.  Below is a sample of the problem. Thank you in advance,Andrew

Hi, I have installed win10 in my U530 and then it starts to be too slow.I recently found out that there is a mSATA SSD (16GB) that was used as cache in previous windows (win8.1).Therefore, I'm looking for a solution to use the SSD as cache in win10 but it seems to be problem in win10, since the ExpressCache is not working properly in this new windows version. Anybody have a solution to this problem?  When I try to run the ExpressCache, it does not find my SSD.In the drivers section for the U530 Touch win10, the ExpressCache is not included, so I tried one for other model (which I don't remember). Thanks in advance.

Hello everyone,  I bought my U530 Touch in 2014 and since last year some keys hasn't been working well. I checked the HMM Page 62 and bought a new keyboard using the same specs (90204088/90204089), but now come the issue, how to replace that!? There's no direction in the HMM file and any other information on internet. I've just opened my laptop and I guess there are two possible ways to remove the keyboard: u5301 - There are few plastic "brackets" (like showed with red circles) where the keyboard is placed, the keyboard is bellow of this piece of metal.2 - I could see a little space between the outside aluminium case and the inside plastic case, and also it seems to have some plastic fittings (like showed with the red rectangle), but it looks like hard to take off and could brake both cases (internal and external). Anyone have already replaced that?If need any other information let me know. Thanks!

So I purchased my Ideapad U530 Touch two years ago and unfortunately I had an extremely common hardware failure occur after my warranty period. One day, without reason or warning, my left hinge on my laptop completely failed when I went to open it. The hinge was stuck in the closed position and when opened it seperated from the laptop screen with a series of unexpected cracks and pops. I spent over $1,000 on this laptop expecting it to make it through my years at college but now I am left with a laptop barely connected to it's built-in monitor. I contacted lenovo support and the support rep even admitted that this is an extremely common occurence but stated that since I am out of warranty, I am basically out of luck and $1,000. You can easily google or search these forums and find that this is obviously a fault in the Lenovo design but they stated that nothing can be done because they can't put me in the system even. The support rep sounded extremely foreign and was unwilling to provide me with any help other than calling Best Buy and paying for a repair. My problem with this is that if I was "lucky" enough to have this design flaw happen during my warranty, I would be provided a repair. But since I was unlucky and had it occur after, I basically lost my money. To me, this is absolutely horrendous customer service for a company that I am sure has billions of dollars in profit. They sold me a flawed laptop that was destined to break at some point and now I have no ch... Read more

I found the lid replacement but not the front bezel.  If anyone knows of one that is new or used I can purchase please let me know.

Answer:iso LENOVO IdeaPad U530 touch front lcd BEZEL

It's been awhile since I semi rebuilt my u530 after the hinge failed.  I don't recall it having a seperate bezel at all, the digitizer goes edge to edge and the "bezel" is masked onto the back of the glass.  FWIW, without the digitizer, I used duct tape to hold the screen in and hardware store bought bolts to reattach the lid.  UGLY!  It's been a while and my memory might be foggy, I want to forget about that experience.  If you're rebuilding because of hinge attachment failure?  You should contact Lenovo, even out of warranty and see if you can't get them to cover it.  It's a well-known design flaw.  Good luck!

Hello - my computer starts, but when it comes to the screen where you would usually hit any key and enter your password, it just doesn't put the prompt available for me to type my password. I have tried turning it off, restarting, let it rest for a day, but is always the same thing: on the screen where I should type my password, it is just blocked, I can move the cursor, but there is no space allowing me to type the password. Can somene help me?

Answer:IdeaPad U530 Touch - won't let me enter my account password

Hi jsaravia,I would like to ask what Windows version are you running on the system? Do you see the power button on the screen when you hit the enter key on the page you get stuck on? Have you tried trying to load the system in safemode? Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers,

Hello, I've owned my U530 Ideapad for about 7 months now, and the audio jack has all of a sudden stopped working. The out-loud speakers are working fine, but it no longer recognizes any device into the headphone jack. At first I couldn't get any sound to come out of my headphones, so I reinstalled my audio driver. After doing this, there was sound coming out of both the headphones and the main speakers simultaneously, but the headphone jack was still not recognizing devices and the audio coming through is very rough and low quality (and oddly enough, it only transferred certain sounds, others would not come through). Does this sound like a mechanical issue that I should go get checked out, or is there a way I can fix this myself? Thanks much.

Answer:U530 Ideapad Touch Audio Jack unresponsive

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
First, try clearing the CMOS to see if that will resolve the problem as the clearing process can help correct hardware issues.  To clear the CMOS, just do this....
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 3. Plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
If the clearing didn't correct the problem then I would suggest that you uninstall the audio driver, reboot the computer and then install a fresh copy of the audio driver.
 
If the driver installation didn't resolve the problem then I would recommend you contact Lenovo Support for additional warranty service as the problem maybe with the board for the headphone jack.
