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.

(2) At the bottom of the screen there is a "Screen brightness" slider control. Drag that left or right to decrease or increase the brightness of the screen. -- from CyberSimian in the UK

On my windows 8.1, I had an Intel display driver crash and recovery.  Right afterwards, my brightness screen is always on MAX and the brightness buttons don't work.  I tried reinstalling the display drivers, bios, energy mgmt, etc and nothing seems to work.  There is also a side windows in windows 8.1 to adjust the screen brightness through touch and that doesn't work.  I turn off/on autobrightness in various locations and did not do anything.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

I use this notebook for about 1 year and recently the brightness control was not working after my sister installed acrobat reader. The brightness is automatically set to 100%. F11, F12 has no response. The brightness control page also not working. In addition, the F7 key is not working as well, and the airplane mode is now turn on and I cannot access Internet. I google for a solution and tried to download and reinstall drivers for power management and display card but still failed. Anyone can help? Thanks a lot.

Hi! As of yesterday, all three of my USB ports malfunctioned, and whenever I plug in anything new it says "USB device not recognised, The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognise it".  It also shows "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)" with a yellow exclamation mark and "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43) A request for the USB device descriptor failed" in Device Manager. There's definitely power coming from the USB ports, just they don't respond to anything I plug in, such as my mouse. I've tried everything I can find online about the error, except updating my BIOS.  However, the BIOS that pcsupport.lenovo.com suggests for my laptop also gives me the warning message "This BIOS is only for Lenovo ideapad 310/510 - 14/15ISK(with touch).  Are you sure you want to update this BIOS on this machine?"  As I don't have a touchscreen, I'm not 100% sure it's the right one.  If anyone could please let me know which BIOS update I should install, or (even better) how to fix my USB issue, that would be fantastic.  Thank you!

Hello, I have purchases this laptop 4 months ago and everything has been working fine. However today when I turned the laptop on, the touchpad was unresponsive. I have not made any system updates, or whatever prior to this malfunctioning. It seems to just have stopped working out of nowhere. I have tried uninstalling the synaptics driver and reinstalling, I have tried older drivers and the newest, also the standard microsoft touchpad driver. Nothing seems to fix it, it is completely unresponsive.Might it be a hardware failure? I appreciate all suggestions.

Subject says it all: suddenly I can't screengrab by simply pressing the PrtSc key.  Nothing happens when I do so.  Nothing is running that could be causing this (no OneDrive, no DropBox).  I haven't changed any settings; at least not intentionally.  It does allow me to paste the screen image into a new image file, but no longer does so automatically, which is a problem for me.  Did I accidentally screw up some keyboard setting?  Any ideas?

Hi,For your information, almost everyone says it's working by "fn+space" but for my laptop it was "double space", i don't know why.Anyway, backlight was working fine until yesterday. Fan started to get loud so i took my laptop apart and cleaned the fan. The noise is gone but backlight stopped working. Capslock, numlock lights and fn key are working, i do not know if there is a correlation. I read almost every topic about the issue but none of them helped.

You guessed it... no display, completely black. However, the System works (Fans, Led lights, sounds, well technically everything but the screen). I used an external monitor to see if it is working fine using this, and seems like it is. But the screen even won't even give off one single light.I tried every diagnose problem, and even everything I could do to make it work, but, none of those works. Any advice or solution may be pleasant to hear now...

Single clicking with my external mouse works fine -- except for in one particular program. But it's not an issue with the program, because if I use the touchpad buttons, single click works fine. And it's not the mouse, because I've tried three different mice, all with the same result. Even when a Lenovo tech rep took over my computer and single clicked within that program, it didn't work until he clicked several times. I've talked to several other people (including tech support for the program), and no one else is having this issue. Has anyone else seen this? Thanks in advance....

When my laptop is plugged in, I have my power-saver setting set so that the display turns off in 15 minutes. When I return to my desk and hit any key, move the mouse, or whatever, it takes anywhere from 6 to 10 or 12 seconds for the display to turn on again. Is this normal? The display on my prior Lenovo (G580) would turn on instantaneously, so I was surprised that it's been taking so long on my new laptop. Thank you.

Hi!I bought an Lenovo IdeaPad 510-15ISK Model:80SR and like other customers i have the same problem on this model with the gpu nvidia 940mx being at 100% usage but core clock speed and memory speed being at 405mhz (when base is 1122 and boos is 1242mhz). First i want to mention that i updated my BIOS version to the 2017 feb (latest for this model) and still have the same problem. The gpu core clock never goes above 886mhz and it usually drops at 405mhz and the memory as well.Like the others said on the forum it seems the problem is from lenovo bios settings where is set that gpu cant go above 62 degrees and when it does the gpu drops to 405 mhz making the laptop useless in games.Also it seems the only solution is an bios  update from lenovo that never came. Also I saw that the support never responded to this problem. I hope someone from lenovo will give me a solution to my problem.I still have my warranty and i'm thiking about money refund or laptop replace model if the problem is not fix because the laptop is not working in the parameters it should work and i wanted the laptop for light gaming

Hi, I wonder is there any way to turn fans off? Cpu temp is about 30 celsius and they still keep running. They don't stop even once. Do yo think this is a normal situation? Do your laptop's fans run without any pause? It gives me headaches.Agghh... Thanks, 

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ISK Laptop turning fans off

There isn't a way to manualy turn off the fans. Keep your laptop well ventilated in a cool place, and choose a power plan different than "High Performance". If your laptop gets cool enough, it will stop the fans

Hi, I have a Lenovo Ideapad N585 with Windows 8 64bit which came pre-installed. I recently upgraded my drivers with AMD catalyst and now my brightness won't work. The current brightness setting is set at maximum, which causes the laptop to run out of energy fairly quick. I cannot lower the brightness. The FN keys nor the slider in Control Panel help lower the brightness. The bar that appears in the top left corner says that brightness is being lowered, but it remains at maximum. Does anyone know how to fix it?  Thanks.

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad N585 Brightness not working.

Hi Ivanb45,
 
Thanks for posting and welcome to the Lenovo Community,
 
As I understand your problem that you can?t lower the brightness so I would to ask you if are you facing the same problem while working on both battery and Ac-Adapter?

Hello, I just purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15ISK and the volume is very low.  I have done the following:- Install the audio drivers.- Augmented the volume to 100% by holding FN+F3.- Augmented the volume to 100% in the Windows audio settings.- Disabled the audio enhancements. If I can't do anything else, this is very disappointing. My phone's speakers play louder than this laptop, this is ridiculous. So please, tell me there are solutions and that these speakers can actually play louder than what it is right now for me. Because right now I am about to return this laptop and go with another company. I know this is a cheap laptop, but I would still expect better because a speaker from the dollar store plays louder than this laptop. The sound is especially low on Netflix, and this is one of the reason this laptop was bought. It is a bit better on YouTube, but it's still disappointing. I tried running the Windows 10 Netflix app or running Netflix from a browser, either way, the audio is low.

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad 700-15ISK Won't boot up

If that is a recent photo of you laptop in the BIOS, then that is a very good indication that the error is probably NOT hardware related, so sending it in to Lenovo would likely not resolve your problem.     Furthermore, the error you are seeing displayed is coming from the Window Operating system, and indicates that some important system files needed for Windows to start up properly are either missing or corrupted.     Typically such errors are not fatal, and can repaired or restored fairly easily by running Startup Repair, System Restore or running other recovery tools from within Window's Recovery Environment.  The last resort would be to backup any data you have stored on the SSD, and then Reset Windows to the default state or resetting the system to the factory default sate, all of which your IT person should be able to do. The error message usually would contain more information than just "Recovery  Your PLC needs to be repaired", so any additional 0x00000??? error codes or information you can provide would help direct you in the right direction.  Best of Luck,

Since I opened the box I have had problems with this laptop.  I have seen a lot of people posting issues relating to the video card error - Lenovo has posted a driver solution for some models, but it has not fixed mine yet.  Aside from this error and the diagnostic failing, apps are constantly crashing, screen flashing non-stop on certain websites or doing certain functions, screen blackout, etc.  Hoping this is all related to the video card error and not some additional problem.  Anyone else having these problems?  Any timeline on the fix?  I have been trying to be patient but it's getting increasingly frustrating... especially with a $1000 brand new laptop...

Hello guys!I had a problem with this laptop and support center replaced MB. After replacement everything is working fine except there is no serial number and MTM programmed in BIOS (it just says INVALID). So, LSB and similar tools can not read serial number and take me to support page. I have SN and MTM written on the back, but I want them to be programmed in the BIOS. Support center told me they don't know how to do it and to ask Lenovo. So, here I am - asking  I flashed latest E5CN61WW BIOS version and I see there is WinFlash64.exe tool that came with BIOS. I'm pretty sure this tool can program serial number, but I'm not sure which option to use and how. There are many of them when I use WinFlash64 -help switch: dak, dss, dpm, dps, dvs and many, many more... Attached to this post you can see help output. So, what is the correct command sequence to write serial number and MTM? Thank you!

My battery seems to charge very slowly when connected to AC and when I unplug I lose power in less than 20 minutes and the diagnostic says battery is in "Fair" condition and only charging at 41.38% of its original full charge capacity.  When I called customer service since I am still under warranty, they just said I could send in the laptop for repair which takes about 7 business days or go to a Best Buy for the GeekSquad to repair.  I went to Best Buy, but the Geek Squad said they would have to send it off for 13 days so none of this was helpful as this is my only laptop and I need it daily so to send it off for 7 business days would be difficult.  Are there any other options for repair that reduce the time significantly?  I can't believe Lenovo doesn't offer overnight shipping to expedite the process

Hello Lenovo Community!  I'm a proud owner of a Lenovo IdeaPad 700-15ISK. I like this laptop alot, even though I only got it a week ago. There is a problem, however. My touchpad is "jumping" at specific time intervals (approx. at a 3 second interval). The "lag" doesn't last more than 0.5 milliseconds, but it's really, really annoying. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling the Synaptics touchpad drivers (I use Windows 10). I tried the ones from Lenovo Support, then the generic ones. I also tried disabling PalmCheck. It didn't work. I tried disabling Realtek Audio Manager, as some people on these forums had a problem with the audio driver causing some kind of conflict, on other laptop models. But that did not work either. Then I installed Ubuntu, and the problem still persisted. I have this annoying touchpad problem even in boot menus! (like Windows/Ubuntu menus, before installing the OS).I opened up a program, which is incorporated into the Synaptics Driver on Windows, called MoodPad, which basically draws a line when you swipe your finger across the touchpad surface. I noticed there are gaps inbetween. I posted some photos to make things more clear. The intervals are fixed, no matter if you swipe the finger across or not. For instance, if you happen to swipe it 2 seconds after the previous "lag" had occured, the next one will occur after 1 second (there is a 3 second interval, as I said before), and so on. Here are the photos from MoodPad. The red circles rep... Read more

So I bought  Lenovo Ideapad 700-15isk with GTX 950M 2GB DDR3 a couple weeks ago and whenever I try to play a game (any game, even from year 2009), my GPU starts overheating and when it reaches ~83C, it automatically downclocks itself to 405mhz. I tried to install drivers from scratch, both from OM and from Nvidia, and that didn't help me. I've also gone through a clean installation of Win 10, that didn't help either.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just got my Lenovo Ideapad 700-15isk on the mail today, bought it with freedos (I already have a retail w10 license I want to transfer to it). Last night I prepared my bootable w10 usb and tested it on my old laptop to verify it works. No problem. I can't get it to work on the Lenovo, no matter what Bios settings I choose. I don't really mind if it's UEFI or Legacy at this point, I'm reinstalling next week when I get my new ssd disk, I just want to be able to get windows in for now. My usb stick is formatted as fat32, with windows 10 64-bit, I got the ISO using the media creation tool from Microsoft, and put it into the usb with rufus. At first, I was getting a winload.efi error (with either uefi, legacy, legacy first, uefi first and all variations you can think of). I redid the usb, this time just mounting the ISO file and copying the files manually. Now I'm getting winload.exe file might be damaged or missing. The mystifying thing is that the installer boots just fine on my old asus laptop. It's been years since the last time I did this, so I'm probably missing something obvious. Can anybody guide me on how to get the windows install screen to come up on this machine? Thank you in advance.

Answer:lenovo ideapad 510-15isk ram upgrade not registering

I presume that you are indeed running a 64-bit version of Windows, since you had 8GB to begin with, so the 4GB limit of a 32-bit OS should not be an issue. If you enter Setup/BIOS, is the full amount of RAM recognized?    If so, save and exit setup and see if Windows will now see the full amount of RAM.     Try the same with your original 2x4GB configuration too.   If it is recognized by the BIOS correctly, then it is somehow being limited by the OS. This is a long shot, but it is worth checking.     Right-click Start >> Run >> msconfig.exeSelect the Boot tab, and then click on Advanced OptionsCheck the Maximum Memory box and if it displays the full 12GB, select OKSee if Windows now reports the correct memory.Repeat the steps above, but now uncheck the Maximum Memory box and select OK Good Luck,

Just bought the above laptop a couple of weeks ago, and beginning to get things setup on the machine. This is my first Lenovo machine, so I hope it turns out to be a good choice. I usually resize my drives on a new machine to have a C drive, a D drive for data and documents, and a M drive for all media files. I find that using the disk management tool in windows usually suffices for this purpose, but for this new machine, the existing partition seemed a bit different. (see attached image) Also, reading on these forums, I found many posts about One Key Reocvery not working after said partitioning is done. Have attached the current partition setup as it came from Lenovo. I find Lenovo's sizing of the C drive pretty unusual in that I would like to store data on a drive other than C. I am afraid that any attempts to resize or shrink the partition will result in OKR not working in the future, or other such issues. Also, the D drive has Lenovo drivers, which I can backup and possibly move into another folder, but is there any issue that might occur if I delete this to create the drives according to the partitioning I desire? In short, what is the best way to ensure that the OKR is not affected while allowing me to partition the C drive as per my needs.

Hello. I have had my Ideapad 300 for several months now and I really love it except for one thing, the trackpad. Due to where my hand and fingers naturally sit, there is a spot on the trackpad that shows a little more wear than the area around it. In this picture ( http://imgur.com/bJovhqL ), you can see that there is an oval shaped region that looks a little different. The problem I am having is that several times a day (up to several times per hour), the trackpad goes nuts.  It doesn'ttrack my finger correctly and performs multi-finger actions even though I'm just using one finger.  It jitters around the screen if I try to use it, and I just have to wait for it to self-correct by staying off of it for up to 30 seconds.  If I look at the trackpad icon on the bottom right of the taskbar while it's messing up, the trackpad is registering multiple fingers. I'll use one finger, and the icon will display 1 finger, 2 fingers, 3 fingers, 1, 2, 1, 3, 4, etc.  Like I said, I just have to wait it out for it to go away.  And on one occasion, I noticed that even if I hovered my finger above the trackpad without actually touching it, it would still register fingers, like it was being super super sensitive or something. I've tried everything reasonable to fix it, tweaking the settings, uninstalling and reinstalling the trackpad, updating the drivers, using the OEM drivers, and nothing works.  It's getting very annoying, and ...

If I remove it, will the NOVO button still allow me to enter BIOS/change Boot sequence? If I understand correctly fixing Windows is associated with partitions 4. and 5.

How to do it and how will bringing back the system to factory defaults look like with pendrive (I guess OneKey Recovery will no longer work)?

2)  With the battery in (but AC adapter removed), attempt to turn on the computer by holding down the power button for 30 sec. This should not turn on the computer.
3)  Remove the battery.
4)  Again, attempt to turn on the computer (AC adapter not plugged in) by holding down the power button for 30 sec.  This should not turn on the computer either.
5)  Replace battery, plug in the AC adapter, and turn on the computer.  The battery should begin charging.

I recently bought a M.2 SSD and I want to use it as a cache drive. Intels RST requires AHCI mode, I was under the assumption that I was already in AHCI mode but my inability to create any raid volumes through the disk management or have my drives recognized by the RST app says otherwise. There is no option to change my mode from IDE to AHCI in BIOS due to it being locked. How can I work around this?

Look in the device manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller, it should say Intel(R) 100 Series/C230 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller. For your second part of your question, you need at least 2 disk with unallocated areas to make a RAID array.

Hi, I have just bought a new Ideapad Y700-15ISK for my wife. It works fine with Windows 10, but there is a small problem. The shop where I bought it changed the original 1T hard drive to a SSD and installed drivers and Windows 10 on that, however it seems that most Lenovo software, apart from a few Lenovo drivers, are missing. I am wondering if anybody here can tell me what Lenovo software is usually shipped with this PC. The drivers are easy to find on the support page, but I don't find a list of other software packages. I suppose it is of interest to install the Lenovo Power Management drivers and applications even if the PC seems to behave nicely on battery alone with the Windows/Intel power management. I have already worked several hours on battery only and I still have 66% left. Any ideas of what is necessary and what can safely be ignored is very wellcome. Regards,Frode

It sometimes charges when I let the laptop in sleep mode or close the lid. I sometimes get a full charge but then, when I'm using it, it just stops charging for no reason. To "force charge" it, I discovered that if I first unplug the charger from the laptop itself, then disconnect the cable from the power brick, plug it back in the laptop and connect the brick back again, it seems to charge for around 4 more minutes. I tried updateing the BIOS with the support from the official Lenovo support site (this one) but it does not work. I heard about the removing the battery and pressing the power button but I can't remove the battery.  The power brick and charger are original and seem to work fine.

Dear  I have just purchased Lenovo Ideapad 310 15ISK. Notebok configuration is great, it is fast and body is good design but one thing bothers me, it is a screen resoultion 1366x768. The colors on the screen looks a bit pale, and the resolution is that way that you can see almost pixels on fonts and objects on the screen and icons are big. It reminds me on the resolution set by default when you just install fresh windows copy and hardware use default drivers for standard VGA display. This is how it was after installing fresh windows 10 home. After that when I installed offical Nvidia Geforce driver nothing changes in quality of display, like hardware doesn't detect driver software. I have never seen this in my time using computers. It is always that display quality somehow improves after installing a driver. Could it be I am missing somthing in settings, or this is just the way how it should work.  Thanks for help.
