Preferred Solution: Lenovo Idea s510p DOA,Hardware Problem

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 everybody,I've bought few months ago a new Ideapad s510p and recentely I've started having a problem related to the disk: often (but not always) when I boot in Ubuntu I get this kind of errors:[ 1033.968385] ata1.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x6[ 1033.968389] ata1.00: irq_stat 0x40000001[ 1033.968392] ata1.00: failed command: READ SECTOR(S) EXT[ 1033.968396] ata1.00: cmd 24/00:01:71:40:74/00:00:4f:00:00/40 tag 1 pio 512 in         res 51/84:00:71:40:74/00:00:4f:00:00/00 Emask 0x10 (ATA bus error)[ 1033.968397] ata1.00: status: { DRDY ERR }[ 1033.968398] ata1.00: error: { ICRC ABRT }[ 1033.968401] ata1: hard resetting link[ 1034.288655] ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 310)[ 1034.387806] ata1.00: configured for UDMA/100[ 1034.387831] ata1: EH complete[ 1034.396738] ata1.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x6[ 1034.396741] ata1.00: irq_stat 0x40000001[ 1034.396744] ata1.00: failed command: READ SECTOR(S) EXT[ 1034.396759] ata1.00: cmd 24/00:01:72:40:74/00:00:4f:00:00/40 tag 3 pio 512 in         res 51/84:00:72:40:74/00:00:4f:00:00/00 Emask 0x10 (ATA bus error)[ 1034.396761] ata1.00: status: { DRDY ERR }[ 1034.396763] ata1.00: error: { ICRC ABRT }[ 1034.396766] ata1: hard resetting link[ 1034.717005] ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 310)[ 1034.876334] ata1.00: configured for UDMA/100[ 1034.876351] ata1: EH complete[ 1034.885134] a...

The laptop can not receive a charge from the charger. I have tried taking out the battery and only having the charger plugged in but it does not allow the laptop to turn on because there is no power/connection going on. The charger connection to the laptop seems loose and it doesnt seem like it is staying in. To me it looks like the charging port is too far into the laptop now and the charger connection cannot reach that far inside to connect anymore. 

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad s510p touch Charger connection problem

hi sgmz21,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
You can try checking the actual DC IN Jack first inside your laptop.
You can refer to this maintenance Manual on how to get access of that part in your Computer.
 
If you think it is Defective you can check the part number on that manual and Call Lenovo to check on how to purchase the part or Check onlinse resellers about the part number and its availability.

I turned off hibernation but my computer still goes into "sleep" mode-- which really shuts down.  Instead of sleeping it shuts down. So I lose all windows and any work on my computer if I walk away for 2 min. I even changed settings to not sleep for over an hour, and it still "sleeps" after 2 min. 

Answer:My Idea pad s510p Touch shuts down rather than sleep or hibernate.

Hi S5obrein,
 
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As you have mentioned that the system does not goes to sleep, does this issue occurs when the system is plugged in or it happens only when battery connected?
 
Uninstall the energy management and reinstall the energy management and check for the issue.

Hi Jonnai,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
This looks like there might be a hardware issue. 
 
Note: As per the Lenovo policy, the warranty will be void if the laptop is dismantled by yourself. so you will need to contact lenovo for a replacement ODD. Please click this LINK for nearest service centres details.
 
Hope this helps.

About a month or two after getting this laptop, I have been getting frequent BSODs, I can't go a whole day without having about 2 BSODs. Most of the time, the bluescreen leaves too early before I can see the message but last night the message was "Data Inpage Error". To note, before the BSODs flag up, it drags and slows down almost to freeze point for sometime and then BSOD comes up. After the BSOD shows up for sometime, If I wait for it to restart itself, it just runs to an infinite black screen, I have to force off by holding poweer button and then turning back on to get it up again. I love this laptop, urgent help will be appreciated.

Answer:Lenovo S510P frequent BSODs

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Is the BSOD giving you an error code or message that may help identify the problem ?  
 
Another option would be to just do a One Key Recovery and restore the computer back to its original out of the box condition.  The downside is the recovery process will erase the operating system so you will have to backup any important files and re-install any software that was added since it was new.  Page #20 of your model's User Guide will explain the One Key Recovery.  Here is that guide for your reference.......

If you are not able to solve the problem please atleast exchange the machine..
 
THE PROBLEM THAT I AM FACING IS DESCRIBED HEREWITH:
When I shutdown the laptop, the laptop starts automatically after 2-3 sec(it does not restart) after it gets switched off completely(the white led light on power button is off). This scenario is different from the normal restart where the led light is on all the time. Here, the led light goes down(turns off) which means that the laptop is turned off completely, but suddenly after 2-3 sec the laptop starts again..I am facing this problem from the second month of purchase. I am using DOS system, with 64 bit Win7. I have formatted OS a couple of times.
I was asked to replace the motherboard of the laptop by one of your Customer Service Centre, and I did so, but the problem is not solved. Although i have started facina a new problem of heating.

Hi, I bought a Lenovo Ideapad s510 sometime in May this year. Currently, my battery does not even hold for 2 hours. The specs mention that the battery is sure to last for 4-5 hours and it will decrease upon usage. Unfortunately, I have not used it much and my usage would count up to an hour to a couple of hours per day. I use my laptop for writing and surfing and I do not do anything much that memory or resource consuming, such as playing games. I tried the gauge reset method a couple of days back and my battery improved only for another 30 minutes, nothing more. I would like to know if this is the maximum battery backup that this system would provide or is something wrong with my battery?? Is anyone else facing a similar problem ?? Thanks

Not happy. 1) the cover cracked at the hinges a few months after I got the laptop. Didn't think it was an issue. Wasn't an issue until number 2 happened. I then put black electric tape across the cracks on the cover.2) the display is separated from the cover. I put black electric tape all over it.3) the right hinge is popping in and out. I keep popping it in and out. Can't really open or close it without the hinge acting up, so can't use it as a laptop, only as a desktop. That is really annoying, if you ask me. and now, for the piece de resistance: 4) the AC converter is no longer working. Where do I find an AC converter for Lenovo Ideapad S510p Touch model # WB12764324? In the meantime, I'm borrowing a Lenovo Thinkpad AC converter.

Hi. I bought my lenovo ideapad s510p 4 weeks ago, it worked perfectly fine the first 14-17 days, but then it suddenly began spiking when I played the online moba League of Legends. At first I thought it was a problem with my router, got a new one, the problem was still there, then I tried lots of different advice from friends, but that didnt work either. Then I tried to update my network drivers, but the problem was still there. I then thought to myself, maybe this problem is only when I play this game, but I made ping test to the google server and i saw 11ms and then it spiked too 300+. I don't know what the problem is, but if someone could help me out it would be appreciated .

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of your problem.  Unfortunately I am not familiar with the warranty in your country.  I would suggest you contact Lenovo Support to discussion the repair, the cost and any possible warranty coverage you may have.  In the event the laptop is no longer under warranty you might seek out a local computer repair center to see if they will do the repair for you.

To be plain and simple I got this laptop as a replacement to finish my college classes with. It connects to my home wifi (AT&T U-verse gateway), our college wifi (Eduroam by Clemson), and most other internet. It just won't connect when I visit my parent's home. I have tried their password, clicking the auto-connect on the router, resetting the router, restarting my computer, updating all my Windows 8 64bit stuff, updating my wireless driver, etc.The computer DOES connect via an ethernet cable. Interestingly enough my husband's Lenovo will also not connect. My iPhone and most other devices in the house connect to NETGEAR 33-5G even though the actual network is called NETGEAR 33. My own Lenovo however does not see any other network besides NETGEAR 33.

HI Support.I bought a Lenovo IdeaPad S510p with WIN8 as a gift,  and now I need to reinstallt this with an operating system that they feel comfortable in using. It will be WIN7SP1.Is there any known issues with this version and WIN7 so I cant "downgrade" it to WIN7?Or do you think I will be able to find all related drivers to win7?Guess I cant buy image from you for this? Thanks for help..

Answer:Reinstall Lenovo IdeaPad S510p With Windows 7 sp1

hi Indigo_SWE,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Regarding your questions:
1: As the drivers for Windows 7 are available in the Lenovo support site, downgrading the S510p to Window 7 is definitely possible. One thing to note though is that the Lenovo Energy Management for Windows 7 is not available yet so you may have some problems toggling the Fn key combinations. Check this article for more info about Lenovo Energy Management.
 
Other issues found by other users:
Windows 7 Combo Jack Realtek driver problem
Ideapad s510p driver problem Win7[ 
 
2. As most of the drivers are available in the lenovo website, you may also need to visit the maker of the device (i.e. Intel website for Intel Graphics driver) in an event that the oem driver fails to load.
 
3. AFAIK, if a certain unit only comes with preloaded Windows 8 standard, the recovery image.will just be Windows 8 standard. You may need to use a retail copy of Windows 7 to downgrade.
 
 
Regards

Hello dear all, I am in Hong Kong. Bought this Lap top (Lenovo Idea B590a (59-393989)) about 2 months ago.My problem is... when I use Skype, the other end cannot hear me PROPERLY. When I use 'Skype test call', I too can understand that my recorded voice is very dull and its not clear. In my previous Laptop(not a Lenovo) there were 2 small holes to fix the jacks for speaker & mic. And I did not have Skype problems ever. The new Lap top  (Lenovo Idea B590a (59-393989)) is having only ONE hole to fix the jack for both speaker & mic. I got a extension with both speaker & mic wires and then plug in to my Lenovo laptop.  I am not sure is there is any technical faults in this new machine. (Why I think like that is because when I use Skype from my OFFICE p/c to the same Skype contacts, sounds/recordings are all fine, no issue at all) Since I am alone in HK, Skype calling to my family + all other  friends overseas is very important to me. Having bought new Lenovo laptop, it seems I have lost that opportunity as all of them cannot hear me properly. I am sure this is not something about 'Skype setting' it got to do something with the lap top. Any help pls.. thank you all.!

Answer:Lenovo Idea B590a (59-393989) - Lap Top.. sound/recording problem (with skype)

Hi hkarmf,It is probably all good with your laptop and therefore with microphone. Did you test the sound both with internal microphone and the one you bought? Do they both produce unclear sound?

Hope this helps.

I've had by S510p for about two years.  Running Windows 10. The shift key started being erratic this afternoon.  When holding the shift key, sometimes typing letters or characters works and sometimes not.  When it doesn't work, it's simply a case of nothing showing up on the page.  It may work 5 times in a row, but then not work a few times.  This is particularly problematic for typing in passwords.  It doesn't seem to always be in conjunction with any specific keys (sometimes a capital I or an ! works, and sometimes it doesn't).  Any suggestions?

Hi Joshua_22,
 
Welcome to the Forums       
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue  BSOD in your Lenovo S510p laptop.
 
Check if the HDD is detected in BIOS and also check if the boot priority is HDD.
 
Since you are unable to boot the computer and it is in a restart loop, you may have to create a bootable Windows 8 installation media and then perform an Automatic Repair. Or if you have the OS cd or DVD you can repair through the cd.
 
You can also try to restore the system to last known good configuration and check for the issue.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists!

Hi all,I recently bought a Lenovo S410p and wanted to install Window 7 - Home Edition. I faced a number of issues - At BIOS level, then it refused to detect USB 2.0, then it refused to install latest Nvidia GEForce drivers (need to install some intel driver but no idea which one it should be!) . It was a nightmare! While doing that, I realized, my touch pad was a bit damaged, the buttons seem to be depressed, it was causing a ridge between the pad and the keys - quite annoying. I took it back to the stores, they did not have another S410p - Hence I settled for the larger screen S510p - paid the difference. Good service from Lenovo!Now back home and tried installing Windows 7 - All the same problems surfaced again. Tinkered for a week and no luck! Then I decided to clean everything up and start from scratch. Trust me it worked this time! I am not a computer geek but a normal user with very limited/basic knowledge. Let me explain what I did,I.

How on earth did you get this working? I've just installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on a brand new Lenovo Ideapad S410p, and NONE of the drivers will install properly without the machine physically locking up! They extract into the C:\drivers folder correctly, then after accepting terms and conditions, the install starts and randomly locks the machine. It's taken me a day just to get the Intel Chipset and Management steps done, but the LAN driver just will not take.

Hi Lektordk,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that the USB port is not working as expected in your S510P Laptop, I suggest you to uninstall the Root HUB drivers and check the issue, below are the steps to perform the same:
 

To open device manager click on Winkey+R key together, type devmgmt.msc in the Run window and select OK.
Now under ?Universal Serial Bus Controllers? then right click on ?USB Root Hub? and select Un-install click OK.
Perform the same above step if there are more than one ?USB Root Hub? displayed.
Then restart and check the issue.

Do post us back if the issue still persists.

Here is my issue...
My computer is about 2 years old got it because it was supposed to be awesome for gaming. For the past month now its just been randomly shutting down....or i should say it is randomly shutting off, completely. No warning no shut down procedure just straight to the always scarey blue screen of death. All thats left on is the power button light on the front of the tower, no green power light on the back of the case. Ive taken it up with verizon since i have their security suite and according to them it is not spyware or a virus. At first I thought it was over heating so i cracked the case and gave a little help with a regular household fan on a low setting giving it a bit more air flow, but even with that i figure couldnt be overheating because at times it will shut down minutes after powerup.Could it really just be that it needs a good cleaning physically? Or am I going to have to shell out money for a new power supply? How can I diagnose the power supply of that is the issue? Ive rolled it back to a restore point and so far its run ok for ten minutes. Any ideas? What could be the problem? Hardware, software, spyware? Any help is seriously appreciated.
 

Answer:Hardware, software, syware..... no idea

Well, clearly, one of the steps here is to clean out all the dust, expecially in the processor and video card heatsinks. Also, while you're in there, reseat ALL the cables, expansion cards, etc.

Next, I'd give it a memory test, at least a couple of hours on one of these. Any failures are a problem, these should run error-free for as long as you let them run.

Hey guys I've had the Lenovo S10-2 for about 1 1/2 - 2 months. So far so good. I've been using it for hours on end and everything works without a hitch. BUT, yesterday night as I was on firefox, I was scrolling down with the down pad  and next thing you know the browser goes crazy. It kept constantly shifting to fullscreen mode then normal mode over and over so it rendered firefox useless. I ctrl+alt+dlt 'd the firefox and opened it up again. Everytime I would press the down keypad it would go crazy again.So I tried downloading the Chrome browser from google and the same thing happened when I pressed the down keypad. Then I noticed when I pressed backspace it kept doing the same thing. I then hit the "Windows" button where it pops up the windows menu on the lower right corner and it started clicking that nonstop really fast. It would pop up, go away, pop up, go away. This lead me to believe its not just a problem from the browsers but just a problem with software?? I'm scanning it right now with AVG to make sure there isn't a virus. I haven't downloaded anything on it for a while so I don't think it would be a virus. I didn't change anything on it so why is it like this? If its not clear let me know and I will try to clarify it a bit better, but it just seems as if when I type a button, it automatically clicks another button nonstop. Its pretty annoying. I'd hate to send it to service and get a new S10-2 as I have a bunch of bookmarks, programs, documents on it alre... Read more

Answer:Lenovo S10-2 Software problem or hardware problem?

Ok guys I've been using Chrome on it again and it isn't repeatedly clicking fullscreen and regular screen anymore... But there is another problem now. Everytime I press "1" it toggles to full screen. It toggles to full screen on a browser, and even when I have a windows folder open, it toggles to full screen on the folder. And when I type something and I make a mistake, I usually hold shift then right or left to hilite the whole word to delete. Whats weird is, i can hold shift and hilite everything to the left, but when i hold shift and try to hilite everything to the right it doesn't work. I have absolutely no clue whats going on. It seems as if shortcuts on my keyboard were assigned, like full screen to when I press "1" or I cant hilite to the right anymore.

Hi. I have a problem with my newly bought Lenovo Ideapad 320. I recently bought the laptop around 1 week ago. It is a great laptop with good specifications. Though I have noticed some rather dissapointing dents and other problems on the body of the laptop. Below are the pictures of the dents and some other problems too.   As you can see in the picture, the touchpad is dented in a circular form.   Some of the keyboard keys seem to be at faulty because. The height of the keyboard keys are not even. It looks like someone has violated the keys playing games or what not.   The metal near the touchpad seems to be bending upward. These are the dents I mentioned above. I have tried reaching out to Lenovo Support by filling up the form online. Though it has come to a dead end since I have not received any reply. I hope the Lenovo moderator itself can help me through this problem. I paid a lot of money for this laptop and I was hoping for none other than a perfect condition for the laptop itself. It was rather dissapointing to face this problem. Here's hoping that this will be covered by my warranty. I'm hoping help from other users from Lenovo community too. Thanks.

I do not have any storage device because I purchased an external hard drive in the past but couldn't figure out how to operate it to back up files and ended up returning it. Am requesting advice on purchasing and using a simple storage device in hopes that this "might" fix the hardware error(?) While the computer is still working fine (except for occasional blue screens while my husband is playing computer games), I'm worried about this hardware "failure." Does anyone have some advice for me?

Left button on 38 day old s510p,Lenovo making me pay for shipping to fix their error.
I have 3 Lenovos at my house.  I will never purchase another Lenovo due to their policy of making the purchaser of their poor product pay to ship it to get fixed.  I better not receive a refurbished laptop as I could have paid much less for one of those.

For the first time ever, I built a PC in late July. Since the first week of owning it, I have gotten the same BSOD once a month, at least. The BSOD's almost all occurred while gaming as well. I also have experienced 5-10 PC freezes, and I am at a loss. I have run Prime95 and Intel's diagnostic program, and the CPU has passed both fine. I have yet to run Memtest though, mostly because I am a bit fearful of stress testing and don't really know how long to do it for (surprised I even did any with my CPU) and just am worried that pushing it to it's max will shorten its life. I have not stressed tested my GPU, and figured it wasn't the problem as the GPU is at full load a lot of times during most days and these blue screens occur about once a month.

My hard drives seemed to cause a problem because of the frequent freezes. I also cannot put my PC to sleep, because it almost always freezes at the welcome screen when it wakes. I ran SeaTools diagnostics for my hard drive, but it froze my PC instantly. I have two of the same hard drive, but it only freezes at this moment when I have both hooked up. I cloned my main drive to my secondary drive and tried booting with each one hooked up individually. In both cases, I did not freeze when running SeaTools. Both drives also passed its diagnostic tests.

So, here I am, at a huge loss. I have tried several other forums, but people rarely answer and mostly just say to update drivers, which I have already done. I don't know what else I ca... Read more

Hello and welcome Rayz mate the memtest would be a good run

MEMTEST

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/105647-ram-test-memtest86.htmlthis one you will need to make a bootable disk set the BIOSto optical (or USB if preferred) boot the machine and let it run for at LEAST 8passes unless the errors come up straight away. Takes fair time to complete andsome leave it running overnight.


But first run these and delete any rubbish you find with the malware scans the ADW just run the Clean button when done.

I plan to build a system with an Intel Core 2 E6600 with a NVidia 8800 GTX and was wondering if there is any big problem with running my copy of Windows 2000 Professional I already have. I still use it with my 3Ghz Pentium 4 and it's been perfect for me.

If it's not wise to run Windows 2000 on this new hardware is it better to get Windows 2003 64-bit or Windows XP 64-bit and why? I pretty much use my computer to play games like Half Life 2, Flight Simulator 2004, Doom 3 and to watch movies and look at pr0n.

2K had it's time in the sun, now it's past. Get XP SP2 on there and you'll be fine. As most others will tell you, with any 64 bit OS you're going to encounter issues with gaming and drivers. I personally don't have any issues at all on this Core 2 Duo running at 1.66 GHz and using Intel GMA950 onboard graphics, so that monster you're going to build would absolutely scream with XP or Vista for most intents and purposes.

But sticking with 2K at this stage in the "game" of Windows and computer hardware would be like putting racing stripes and a Recaro seat on a Segway...

Hello everyone. I'm new here and this will be my first post on here. I'm sorry if I have started this post in a wrong thread. I'm unsure of where it should go. Anyways, I'm not a tech expert so that's why I here. I will try my best to describe my problem tho.

First of all, I have been having this problem since last week. The problem is that it just auto shut down on me without any warning.

I thought it was because its overheating/the cpu reached it limits hence why it auto shut, but thats probably not the case.

And since that happened I just thought to myself that I should just reinstall windows. Haha. I thought that would solve my problem. But it didn't.

This crash problem occured when I opened game. I also realised that it happen as well when I browse the internet using firefox. Like after I opened it for a few minutes it then shut down.

However, if I'm not opening anything else and just at the desktop and only transferring files for hours, the crash never happen unlike after I rebooted, went to firefox, then googling stuff and then poof, it crashed. I also checked the cpu too, but its not overworking itself. Its just chilling.... Oh, and I checked it from task manager.

I already tried uninstalling the nvidia drivers and went to surf the internet afterward. No crashes at all. I could watch youtube as well without having it crash on me. But when I reinstalled the driver back. It happened again.

I've been kickin around the idea of making a website and I want to host it at my house. I don't expect many hits realistically, I can't see their being more than 10-30 hits a day at it's peak. I'm not too concerned about bandwidth and upload speed. It's not going to be more than 1-3 pages with mostly text with some pictures, so I won't be hosting any downloads.

Do any of you host websites at your house? What are the major security concerns? I plan on using Ubuntu 9.04 for it. This is the hardware I was thinking of using, I didn't think it needed to be that powerful and I wanted it to use the least amount of energy possible since it'd be 24/7.

Newegg.com - Winsis Wi-01 Black SGCC &#47; ABS Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 200W Power Supply - Computer Cases

Newegg.com - Sony Optiarc Black 8X DVD-ROM 24X CD-R 24X CD-RW 24X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA Slim Combo - CD / DVD Burners

I would assume an Atom would be sufficient.

Answer:Hosting a website at your house. Good/Bad idea? Hardware questions as well.

really to host a website it isn't difficult at all, grab a good copy of ubuntu server edition and apache. the only thing that really limits you is bandwidth. Also if you don't plan on getting many hits then hardware is a minimum. The atom processor would do just fine in that case, but if you ever got a lot more traffic then it might become a problem.

I used to host a website from my house on a modded xbox...worked fantastically.

The only thing I can do is to hold down the power button until it force shuts off, and then start it up again.The problem does not occur if i close the lid to 'force' sleeping mode - it wakes up perfectly. Another problem is not working bluetooth device.  the moment I connect any device to my laptop connection is lost.

My Lenovo X61t Tablet was working fine with an external Samsung SyncMaster 226BW monitor. One day, the external monitor stopped displaying anything with the X61t. The screen just displays "Check signal cable". The monitor works fine with a different laptop. I have tried everything, and searching on the web, I have found lots of people reporting the same problem. And it is not limited to just X61 tablets, but lots of other Lenovo models as well like the T Series. Though I have seen reports of lots of people facing this problem, I have not seen any solutions from any users or anyone from Lenovo. The problem is not new either. Some of the posts are as old as 2008.Some frustrated users have suggested that it is a Lenovo manufacturing defect. If that is the case, it is across several models and series. Surely, someone at Lenovo should be able to throw some light on this problem, and suggest a solution or workaround. If Lenovo has not figured out the cause of the problem, then the problem is probably present in the new models too, making it dicey to buy any of the newer models coming out. Thanks.

What, precisely, are you trying to do? Play DVDs from an external DVD drive? Play DVD image files (.iso, .img, .bin)? Play some other video format (e.g. .avi, .wmv, .mpg, .mp4, .mov, etc.)?

I believe this is the Smile Dock application.  Open it and select the Maximize Box.  Then select Edit Profile from the pull-down menu (labeled Default), go to Add-Ins tab and uncheck all listed apps.  Then go to Account Information in the same pulldown menu.  Uncheck "Start Lenovo Smile-Dock when Windows starts" and uncheck the Lenovo updates and Idea Notes boxes. This eliminated everything for me.  Of course you could just uninstall Lenovo Smile Dock altogether if this does not work for you.

I didn?t have them before. I?m sure that Fallout 4, Far Cry 3, Bioshock Infinite, etc. worked perfectly fine. But then it started. Here an example of the FPS drops:In League of Legends, which I had first installed on the SSD, I always had a FPS of 90-180. Sometimes it drops to 10-20, when in a teamfight or even when simply moving. I installed it on the HDD now and have the feeling the drops happen less often. The FPS there is 60 and when it drops 9-13. And that?s what happens in a lot of games. In Skyrim, Fallout 4, Bastion, Far Cry 3 etc. They just lag when I move or when fighting? For weeks now I have searched for a solution, but found nothing that helped? I did/have checked the following things: -Using the lowest settings. Drops still happen. Even if it?s not a high end gaming notebook, I?m still expecting that it can play games like Fallout 4, Skyrim, Far Cry 3 and LoL on the highest settings. The recommendations are met after all.

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

There is a partition "D" , 25GB,  called Lenovo that I'm puzzled about , so I have some questions (I have looked at some of this thread also new disk partioning and one key recover feature ) On D there is a folder, "drivers" , which I think could have been on the main C partition. I thought the purpose of D was to be a dedicated space for a system backup, using "Onekey". But shouldn't such a partition be invisible?  I also noticed an invisible 14GB recovery partition next to the viible D disc., when I look at disc management. In OneKey I can do a system backup. It says that it needs 44GB. That's more than the size of the D partition. Will it always backup all the data in C ? Then it will be a huge amount over time. So I don't get the idea behind OneKey or the D partition. You can do a system backup in windows 8 that you save to USB. But that takes only 16GB. I'm gessing that's only the most vital system data. I would have liked to have the total 1000GB partitioned into a 300GB C disc, and the rest on a D partition. If I want to erase the current D partition, how can I transfer any important drivers to the main C disc? I hope that I can do that and then create a new partition out of C. Any suggestions or explanations? 

Answer:The idea with the D partition (Lenovo z50) and OneKey

Hi, i have a Z50 for a few days..i've not idea about the D: partition but I guess it's a partition to save drivers and allow users to access it.. concerning the hidden partition.it is not possible to burn recovery disks using One Key Recoverythe only way to recover your system from factory is using the recovery partition (not C, not D, but the hidden partition)so better to keep it. As C: is the main partition i guess you can only reduce the volume, not extend it (as in windows 7).I would copy file from D: (drivers) to C:then I would delete D: and resize C: hope it helped.mike

Hello, my name is yoni butbul and I have an IdeaPad Y560 laptop. A few months ago it began crashing on me. It would freeze up and the screen would start to get a blue checkered pattern then crash (sometimes recovering). I have sent my laptop into technical support two times and they have not fixed the issue. Upon calling technical support to help me with my laptop they said they would pass my case to somebody at Lenovo relations and they would call me. It has now been my 5th call to leno technical support after waiting for over 3 weeks, and still I get the same answer "someone from leno will call you" . ive waited patiently with a laptop I can't get work done on. Can someone please help me resolve this issue?

Answer:Lenovo Idea Pad Y560 Keeps Crashing, Please Help

Did you try onekeyrecovery? And did this problem arise or was from the starting? And this is most probably a motherboard problem. Many y560users have faced this. Mention any specific situation when laptop crashes if any.
