What kind of Lenovo IdeaPad would you recommend for me?

Question: What kind of Lenovo IdeaPad would you recommend for me?

Hey guys, I'm in the market for a new laptop. Decided to switch over to Lenovo after having too many problems with ASUS laptops. I've been checking out the IdeaPads for a while. I'm not completely sure what series or model I should go after and would appreciate some support in making a decision. Here's a bit about what I plan on doing with my laptop: -I'm a webmaster & developer so I'm always on the Internet-I'll be going to college as a business undergrad this fall-I use a lot of software like Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Mixcraft, etc. -I don't plan on doing any hardcore gaming-I need a laptop that runs fast and smooth and can support many open browser tabs at once-Long battery life-Boots up fast Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: What kind of Lenovo IdeaPad would you recommend for me?

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.)

Nowhere in the documentation, web site is any info about what kind of controller and hence what size SD cards this model is supporting.Even Lenovo tech support doesn't know that info!I am really hesitant to buy a SDXC card of +32GB only to find out it supports on SDHC cards, thus limited to 32GB... thanks for any useful info, Ralf

Answer:What kind of SD card controller is in a Lenovo IdeaPad 120S-11AIP? SDHC or SDXC compatible?

Hi ITWorxLA,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
 
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
 
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Pls help suggest SSD for Ideapad700 . 

Answer:Please recommend SSD support for Ideapad 700.

Click on "Support" at the top of this page and then "Documentation", download the hardware manual, it will list the compatible drives and ram for your model.  FYI there are different models of the  Y700 and they use different type m2 hard drives.

I'm shopping for a University laptop and at first I was looking at the $500-600 AMD A6 laptops until I saw Lenovo's Ideapad line. I was thinking of stretching my budget to $750 for the Y470 or Y570 with i5-2410M + GT550M/555M My needs are primarily for school but having light-mid range gaming would be nice and I also want to be able to stream 1080p with HDMI output. My primary concern is battery life. I know having a discrete card uses a lot more battery, but shouldn't the swappable graphics help with that? Is the 4 hour battery life listed for the discrete or integrated graphics? The extended battery life of AMD's new lineup is tempting, but I'm not sure if the performance will be strong enough for my needs. I'm also seeing a lot of potential problems on this forum and I need this laptop to last me 3-4 years. I heard about the Thinkpad quality, but how's the Ideapad build quality?

Answer:Would you recommend an Ideapad for University student?

The battery life quoted will most likely be for the discreet graphics, when testing manufactures will often try to prelong it as much as possible for example turning the brightness down and only browsing the internet with no video playing or playing any games. Unfortunately for me the build quality isn't as great as the Thinkpad line, although it is good in comparison to the "bottom" manufactures like Acer I would say the build quality of Ideapads are mid whilst the build quality of Thinkpads are top.

In the T400 and T500 customization screen there is a [Recommended by Lenovo] next to the 2.53ghz processor option (T9400) instead of the 2.8ghz option (T9600). Why does Lenovo recommend the slower clock speed. Do 2.8ghz processors run a little hot in this laptop? thanks

Answer:Why does lenovo recommend 2.53ghz over 2.8ghz?

They are probably recommending the T9400 because it is the better value between the two.  They both have 6MB of cache and the T9600 is less than 11% faster (clock speed), yet the T9600 costs a lot more.

I uninstalled a piece of software that came with the yoga.  I wanted it back, so I checked their site and the software is non-existent.  I called tech support and asked them if they could email me a download link to the software.  They said they COULD NOT and I would have to clear the hard drive and reinstall everything.  The computer is great and I have had an awesome experience with it, but I cannot believe for the life of me why they don't have this software in the drivers matrix.  Every other PC company has their proprietary software on their drivers page.  Very, very backwards system.

Welcome to the forum!
 
Try avoiding SSDs with a SandForce controller, I've experienced quite a few issues with them on this generatioon of ThinkPads. Intel's 520 and 530 are such drives, amongst others.
 
Crucial M4/500/550/MX1, Samsung 830/840 Pro, Intel 320/730 should all work fine.

Hi ninjamonke,Thanks for posting. To be honest there isn't a specific type of screw driver I would recommend you to buy to open up the machine. Personally when it comes to opening up machine I personally use a "Phillips" head type of screw from the collection of the standard 6 piece precision screw drivers I have. Though however I had tried a screwdriver with a magnetic head. That really helped with reassembling the machine back together.For further confirmation on assembling and reassembling you machine I would suggest you consult the hardware maintenance manual from the below link.http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_y480_y580_hmm_1st_edition_mar_2012_english.p...Hope this helps.Regards

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

 Hi, my name is Ben and i own a 2 year old Lenovo Y530 laptop with windows Vista Home Premium.Everything was working fine, when one day about a month and a half ago, i got the "blue screen of death".Better known as an error code, where your computer crashes.I then proceeded to re-install windows vista, where then it failed to install the updates, and only after a very short amount of time of actually being in the desktop of the computer, it crashed once more, giving the classic error message of it might be something new that was installed, or new hardware, when in reality i didn't install or add/remove any new equipment whatsoever.I bought this Laptop in the US 2 years ago in late 2008, and then moved to Israel.So here is the real problem, after checking the HDD for bugs, or viruses, it was fpormatted, and put back in, also following a system recovery from Lenovos one click recovery system.And found that neither the HDD, or the OS was trhe problem.So since i live in Israel, i sent it to my local Lenovo shop, where they said they do not fix these types of lenovo laptops!So how am i supposed to get to the bottom of this issue? if my local computer lenovo store does not fix my model of computer?I would like an answer ASAP because i need this computer for school and such, and the information that was lost is irrelevant, i would just like the computer to be functioning and stable again.Thank you, and much regards,Ben.

To be covered by warranty, your laptop must have IWS (International Warranty Service). That's the only way to get covered. http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/UserFiles/IWS/20100909035858_62.htm Best regards.

I had a virus a few days ago. I tried to delete the virus after downloading a scanner. My laptop rebooted and had a blue screen that gave me options to fix, reset to factory, etc however the keyboard wasn't working so I couldn't put in my password. The only option without the password was to reset totally so I did. After a while another screen popped up saying there was an issue with the resetting. Long story short when I reboot only the lenovo splash comes up, F2 and F12 at the bottom of the screen, and the curser in the top left corner blinks a few times and then disappears. I can't get it to boot for nothing. I am able to plug another keyboard in but now all I get is the black screen and have no options to reset. I've read that the bios is probably the issue but have not clue how to get this set back up. Won't read usb flash. Please help.

Hi All, I just bought an E125 during an extended trip to Thailand.  It's a great little machine and it's a shame Lenovo doesn't bother selling it in North America (where I'm from).  My problem is that the keyboard I got on my machine is different from the one I was shown at the shop.  I looked up the part number for the keyboard and realized that Lenovo actually has two different FRU numbers for their keyboards for this model (as well as the X121).  The keyboard I have has a very shallow key travel that is noticeably less than the one in the shop.  A friend has the same machine and he got one of the good ones -- nice deep key travel that we expect from a Thinkpad.  Why does Lenovo permit its keyboards to made differently and then insist they are interchangeable?.  They are not.  Lenovo is well know for this pracitce as many Thinkpad owners know that there are three different manufacturers for their other models.  I am a former owner of a T60 that has experienced the Chicony and the Alps keyboards.  There is a definite difference there, although happily the key travel was the same.  This difference between mine (FRU: 04W0978) and the other in the shop is huge.  The quality control really needs to be beefed up.  I called Lenovo Singapore and they referred me back to the store.  I'm not holding much hope on that front since it's not their fault that Lenovo can't figure out a way to only man...

Sorry, I'm not aware of the type of plastic.  I would try a Super Glue first.  In the event it doesn't bond you could then try a epoxy glue.  You might also look at the new Bondic plastic weld system. Here is an example......

hello all. I need a new motherboard for my lenovo sl400. Some questions I have are: Can I find a cheap mother board like 50 to 100 bucks on say newegg.com or tigerdirect.com? Or do I have to buy a motherboard specifically for this model.... I don't want to spend too much...My budget isn't huge. Will any microform motherboard fit or does it need to be specific to Ibm lenovo sl400?... Can you point me to a link or links to low cost motherboards for this brand or that will work with this brand? thank you in advance for your help?

Answer:need a mother board for my ibm lenovo sl400 What kind can I get for a cheap price?...

These motherboards are not available on the market as new. They are specifically built for the SL400 and no other motherboards are intercompatible with it like desktop pc motherboards.
 
a second hand motherboard would generally cost you 300 dollars if you are lucky. 
 
So what happened to your Sl400 and why do you need a new motherboard?
 
If you didn't damage the laptop by yourself, there is the option for post warranty warranty, where you can get your laptop fixed. It would be cheaper than you sourcing your own motherboard and replacing it.

Hello I have been fighting issues with my external monitor not turning back on after sleep. I have it set to hybrid mode, I understand the other fix is to set it to discrete mode but my other laptop of the same type does wake up after moving the mouse in hybrid mode. I tried multiple things. 1.) Updated Intel Management Drivers and Software 2.) Updated Thunderbolt Software 3.) Used Graphic Driver Uninstaller and to no avail.  I also installed every update for Windows 10 on their web site. The other fix is to enable and disable the NVIDIA driver in the and that wakes up the HDMI port it seems, but that should not be the case, I would like it to just turn on with the flick of the mouse or button like my other laptop. Is it a failing graphic card of Nvidia or Intels end? I do notice after the monitor sleeps the NVIDIA drivers control panel settings go missing. I already uninstalled completely and reinstalled the drivers but my computer is still having this problem. Are their any suggestions on Lenovo's end or fixes? I bought this laptop from Amazon and I also joined a 3 year support service from them.

Answer:Lenovo P50 - HDMI External Monitor Not Working After Sleep (My Other Laptop of the Same Kind does)

Have you compared the Power Option settings on the two laptops to see if they match as well?Do the two systems share the same monitor, and if not, how is your monitor configured, does it have an option to set the input source to HDMI vs. automatically detecting the source?When in the mode where the screen does not turn back on, what happens if you press the following key combination Windows Key + Shift + Ctrl + B  (forces a reset of graphics cards) do you hear a beep and your screen wake up?     That key combination sometimes works to wake the monitors, and while not a solution, it may be a work around until you find a permanent one. Best of luck,

The problem is (you've probably worked it out by looking at the mem specs) is that the slot on the new memory doesnt match up with the bar going accross my memory bank.

Which part of the memory specifications defines where abouts the slot is on the actual memory module is?

My motherboard is a GA-7S741M

You didn't need to set the boot mode to Legacy Support, you should install it without legacy support, but install on the UEFI, so next time turn the legacy support OFF, and install the Windows on the UEFI. If you turn legacy off, it automatically should be UEFI

Thanks

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t

The short answer is "yes".

Check out Jesse Andersen's site on the S10-3t. He's pretty much the expert on that machine.

The relevant section for you is Lenovo S10-3T: Windows 7 Starter vs Home Basic vs Home Premium vs Professional vs Enterprise vs Ultimate

Hello,since I bought my new laptop back in Dec 2016 and aside from the fact that I had to struggle a bit with the delivery process that ended up to be a non-issue, I was happy with this machine... Til about three weeks ago. Unfortunately, the return period has expired and since the whole story is not relevant here (other than just venting my frustration) I will just try to turn this into a positive experience by asking and perhaps offering advise out there.My ask is: Does any one out there know if there is a way for me to have similar functionality that an Integrated Microphone Array via an outside device or anything on this machine? The Ideapad 310 unfortunately does not come with this device which is embeded in the motherboard. Since I had bought HP laptops in the past which bring it as part of the standard build, I didn't even think (nor did I know) of finding out if this machine had this component. But it doesn't come with it. Yes I know, my bad, I should've sticked to HP, but anyway, I have this piece of expensive hardware (at least for me) and I can't use it for what I need because it does not come with that feature. Please, I've done quite a lot already, so don't offer anything else than what I am asking, please, if you don't know what an IMA does then it is basically an internal microphone that you can use as opposed to a headset. I need that to work that way. Period. So, I don't know, Lenovo tech support had already given their veredict but perhaps some savvy pe... Read more

DW,
 
I've replied on some of your other threads - we'll try to make further suggestions here, but you may also want to contact service.  I think you indicate it just fell out of warranty.  We can look into the situation and see what can be done.
 
So, the system is hung on the Lenovo screen every time you start up correct?
 
If you press F1 can you get into BIOS?
 
Can you press F12 to get a boot device list?  If so, is the HDD shown?   If the boot device list comes up, then maybe the system board is OK and if the HDD is not shown, then perhaps that is the problem.  If you can't get the list, then maybe a probably with the system board.
 
I would also check your USB ports to see if any are broken.   On some ThinkPads, if a port was broken and the plastic rectangular piece was broken out of it, the 4 pins left could wind up shorting out which would cause a hung on ThinkPad screen.
 
Let us know the outcome and perhaps the community can help you figure this out.
 
Best regards,
 
Mark
