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

Answer:Working on the Lenovo Flex 2-14.

No, some SSDs are incompatible, and there is no compatibility list. Crucial mx100 and Intel 530, for example, turned out to be incompatible. Read this for more info (there's also a list of SSDs that worked for some people): https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Idea-Windows-based-Tablets-and/Trying-to-install-mx100-ssd-in-flex-2-14...For some tips on opening it up, read my topic:        Flex 2 15 not compatible with Intel 530 SSDs + how...

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

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

So, I've tried EVERYTHING but I can't get it to work.
 
I have used my internal microphone to Skype call and Teamspeak, but it randomly shuts off. I have done the Microsoft troubleshooter and it actually said that there's no microphone to check on. 
 
Right now I'm still working with Windows 8, because I don't want to change to Windows 10 untill this is fixed. It should work in Windows 8, so changing to Windows 10 shouldn't make a diffrence in the first place.
 
My microphone has worked, the problem is that it shuts off randomly. I don't know what I can do?
 
With kind regards,
 
Anne-Louise
 
Edit: I remember this happening after setting up speech recognition. I just opened it and my microphone works with speech recognition, but when I want to 'train' my computer to recognize my voice better the microphone stops working.
 
Could speech recognition close down my internal microphone fully, and how do I change speech recognition so it doesn't work (I never use it, was for funzies).

The touchscreen on my ideapad flex 14 laptop is not working. I've tried uninstalling the driver in device manager and then restarting my computer. I've also checked that all drivers are up to date. I'm on wondows 10 and I think it has worked since the upgrade (though I'm not 100% sure). Any ideas?

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad flex 14 touchscreen not working

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

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

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

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

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

hi riglesias,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Once the Touchscreen stops responding, can you check the following:
1. Open System Properties and see if the Touch functionality is still there 
  - Link to picture (Touchscreen feature is not detected)
  - Link to picture (Touchscreen feature is detected)
 
If the Touchscreen feature is detected, proceed to Step 2.
 
2. Press the Windows key? +R, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter. On the Device Manager, navigate to the Human Interface Devices section and uninstall anything that says HID-compliant device (this is the driver that controls the touchscreen). When finished, reboot the system and observe.
 
3. If the Touchscreen is still not working, hold the Shift Key and hit the restart button inside Windows and you should be able to see the image below then try to tap on the screen to test and observe. I

I seriously doubt the camera is broken, as this laptop hasn't been dropped to the ground or anything like it.

Hi everyone, I have a T61 14.1" that is about a year a half old now and the integrated webcam has started to intermittently fail. Over the past few months, I've noticed that whenever some software tries to start the webcam, it cannot initialise it. Once in a blue moon, it works. I doubt it's software since it's a problem that has happened even after I recently did a fresh recovery of my system.  Should I call it into Lenovo Tech Support? I have a 3 year extended NBD On-Site service..I would personally prefer emailing them, but I don't think there is a way to do that.--unless they do have email support? Can anyone please advise? thanks!

I bought my laptop new 1 month ago from the lenovo website, I downgraded to windows 7 with no issues.. One week ago the webcam stopped working, so I uninstalled, reinstalled drivers, and nothing. I did a system restore, and still no change. This seems to be a problem for some but mine seems to be unique in that once I did a system restore windows could not find the hardware at all. I've tried all the drivers that are on the website but it seems the camera itself is having issues. Thanks for the help in advance.

Recently noticed that my webcam is not working or being detected at all since installing Windows 8.1. It worked in the Camera app for a while (the default Windows 8 one) afterwards but now isnt working in that either, nor is it showing up in device manager. I've tried downloading and installing the drivers from the support website including the windows 8 and 8.1 drivers but always get a response that there is No Appropriate Device Installed. Attempting to run the individual setup files for each brand also does absolutely nothing

Try rolling back the USB controller drivers. Your webcam is connected to your main computer via USB. Also check if you are having any other USE issues.

Answer:Lenovo z565 webcam not working tried everything

Hello Johnk92 and welcome to Lenovo community,
 
It seems you have tried many steps.
 
Kindly update the BIOS and then check if the camera driver gets installed.
 
You may also try the Windows Vista driver as it worked in few cases.
 
If issue still persist then reinstall the Operating System and then install the camera driver first.
 
Please share the update with us.

The webcam in my T420 suddenly stopped working. Tried the following:

F1 to access Bios. Under 'Security' the 'Integrated Camera' is enabled.

Under Windows Live Movie Maker: Displays 'No Webcam was found.'

Under Device Manager there are no 'Imaging Devices' listed so I can't update the drivers.

Lenovo Easy Capture tells me 'Failed to Open Camera'

Skype Tools>Options>Videos says 'Skype couldn't find a webcam.'

Have installed the 8aca15ww.exe Integrated Camera Driver.

Edit: thanks to those who looked at this post. As you probably guessed it's a hardware failure, and I've just taken it to Lenovo for service.

Hey, I have owned the Lenovo y510p for awhile, I've probably used it for around 6+ months but recently I've been trying to use the built-in webcam. It worked for awhile, and then for some reason, it stopped working.

It worked for another short while until it broke down again.

Hi Mudkep,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that the internal webcam is not getting detected even after re-installing the driver and performing the possible troubleshooting steps. Hence, the only available option to confirm if the issue is Hardware related by performing OSRI (Operating System Re-Install) please let me know the issue persists even after performing OSRI.
 
NOTE: Please backup the data in the computer before performing OSRI, as the data will be completely erased.
 
Hope to hear back soon

I tried testing the camera with skype, youcam and testmycam webpage... the result was, all of them concluded I don't have an in-built webcam. I also tried attaching an external mic this works well enough but it is not a solution to my problem. Apart from opening up the screen panel I have done everything I can think of, the local lenovo customer care didn't provide much help either.

I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad S300 running Windows 8 and initially had difficulty in getting it to update but, with help from several websites, managed to resolve this problem. However, I never managed to get the integrated webcam to work. The application would launch but the camera screen is blank. Device Manager advises that the device is working properly and the drivers are up-to-date. Incidently, this particular notebook does not have the hotkey (F9) to switch the integrated camera on/off but, I understand, on later versions Fn+Esc is supposed to perform the same function; it does not. The system has two associated programs, Lenovo EasyCamera and Lenovo YouCam.

More recently I have updated to Windows 8.1 but the integrated webcam still does not work. Can anyone please advise what I might be doing wrong or what I could do to get the webcam to work. I'm a bit of a newbie, particularly as far as Windows 8 is concerned. Regards.

Answer:Integrated Webcam on Lenovo Ideapad S300 not working.

Have you tried re-installing the webcam driver? I have a Lenovo at home and mine was ok when I upgraded, but I removed all the Lenovo drivers for the webcam. (As I hate all the rubbish companies put onto new equipment)

Also when you run the camera app does it detect a camera? Usually Windows 8 will ask for a camera to be plugged in. If it shows a blank image does the white light next to the lens turn on?

Hi! Actually I did not know where exactly to put this message so I put it here!
But the thing is that I've got a Lenovo Flex 2 - A (15) laptop and it's made in China, and the problem is when I'm installing Microsoft Windows 8.1 Enterprise N x64 on it, the webcam App of windows 8.1 itself doesn't work and it says: "Looks like there's something wrong with your camera. Check the manufacturer's website for troubleshooting info.". But the thing is that the driver for webcam is installed correctly and when I check it, says that this device is working properly, and also when I use another webcam software like 'WebcamMax', it exactly identifies the webcam and everything is going right! So what's the problem with Windows 8.1 x64?! Also I have installed the 32-bit version of windows 8.1 Enterprise and the webcam was working properly BUT the problem was about the available part of memory for using! Only about 3 GigaByte of 8 GB total amount and when I installed a high graphical game like "Call of Duty MW3" it underwent the problem of 'out of memory'! but now by using the 64-bit version of windows I can use the all 8GB of Memory! So I won't go on x32 version!
I'll be so thankful to you about solving such problem!

I've been using conservation mode for my new (1 month) lenovo laptop every time I put the AC adapter in it. I thought that this was going to help me endure my battery life, but in the end I've stacked with the fact, that battery's stamina went much more lower. For example, I could use my laptop in a battery economy mode/conservation turned off for 5-6 hours, now it barely lasts 3 hrs with the same settings and the same pattern of usage. Just for record, 21 minute of watching a film costs my battery from 10-20% now, while before it was not an issue at all, I hardly can tell that it drained me more than 5%. Also, right now, while typing this, I've noticed, that behaviour of my percentage bar is also really strange: first it shows 75%, then, after 5 minutes, it showes 73%, without getting through 74%. And as a one big plus to that, my battery status says that my battery is normal, just normal, while before it was great or something like that. I find it strange because it is 1 month old notebook, as I mentioned earlyer. Now I am trying to recalibrate my battery, for the 3d time, hoping it would help me, but I really wish to hear your opinion about that, maybe there is something that I don't know about, something that can help me. P.S. It is 70% now, gezus

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?
 

Answer:Kaspersky IS 2017 vs Norton IS 2017 vs Bitdefender IS 2017

bitdefender free+ CF and SAP i think will be good

I just bought a Flex 4-1470 about two weeks ago and used the camera once and it worked well. I tried to use it again today and it was not detected by my system. I looked for it in the device manager under "Imaging Devices" but that section didn't exist. I eventually found it by enabling hidden devices and the icon was greyed out and the device Lenovo EasyCam was reported as disconnected, Code 45. I updated the drivers, reinstalled EasyCam, and tried every solution that I could think of or find to no avail. I eventually uninstalled the device thinking that perhaps the device was improperly installed and it disappeared entirely. Now it doesn't appear in the Device Manager at all, even under hidden devices. The option for camera settings doesn't even appear in Lenovo Settings. The best I can figure is that it is internally disconnected which would be absurd since I've only had this laptop for 2 weeks. Are there any solutions that I could have possibly overlooked, short of disassembling the laptop and reconnecting some possibly disconnected cables?

Just unboxed my Lenovo Flex 3 and so far I pretty much love it. My only problem is I cannot access the "Lenovo Settings" app on Windows 8.1. It asks if I want to send info back to the devs to help with the app but then it freezes and sends me back to the desktop. Is there a fix for this problem? Also, I am unsure how to change my preferences for my trackpad. I go to Control Panel, but there is no option for "Mouse" like I am used to to adjust my touch preferences. Any help on this too?  Thanks guys,Stephen

Hi guys,  I just got the Lenovo Flex 10 Ideapad today and am very happy with it. I was uninstall some unwanted software and accidently uninstalled Lenovo Fusion software!  Just wondering if there is a link where I can redownload this - or maybe it's not important?   Thank you.

Right, you mentioned it turned blue with a sad face, that is a Blue Screen of Death (or proper term is Kernel bugcheck) which indicates something has gone wrong.
