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

I am a new owner of a Ideapad 120S purchased yesterday on Black Friday.I have mostly owned Dell laptops previously. I am guessing that when I power the laptop the first thing I need to do is create a backup on a USB flash drive. Any gotchas I should know about?    

Answer:new owner of Ideapad 120S

Yep, backing up is a good practice.  
 
Other than that, you should be good to go.  Enjoy your new machine!

Hello, Yesterday i bought Ideapad 120S-14IAP and i have a problem with FN key. It does not work at all.  I installed Windows 10 Pro x64 , after that,  i installed all drivers from lenovo website. Windows is up to date.I tried a usb stick with Ubuntu 16.04  and FN works perfectly.  Seems to be a driver problem.I thought it was a fail driver. I dont know. PS. In BIOS is enabled FN key.

Brand new Ideapad 120S purchased last Friday.Just got around to powering up. Went into Windows 10 to create a recovery drive and get the common non-descript error "A problem ocurred while creating the recover drive". First I used a 16GB PNY in the rightUSB port.Second I tried a 32GB SanDisk in the left USB port. What do I do now? The laptop appears to be working.

Now I don't actually know if this is the correct subject to put this on, but when I looked for it the settings it said my laptop is an Ideapad 120S-11IAP, so this is close enough. Essentially the title. Usually happens when I'm playing games set in a Google Chrome window (likely HTML urls). Help would be appreciated, as it's annoying as hell to want to peek at a Youtube video and then go back to the game to see my progress has been lost.

I have seen that on older models with emmc drive, there was an available m.2 slot on the motherboard where you could put in an m.2 drive. Can you do that in the ideapad 120s? I have the 11 inch model with emmc drive soldered to the motherboard. Thank you.

Keyboard has just today started bringing up shortcuts on a key stroke - eg M- minimises. I am able to type this but cannot type in G Mail. and cannot type into other web based programmes. Any suggestion, please?

Answer:Keyboard on ideapad U 310 only does shortcuts.

hi hughbie,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
The shortcut M to minimize a windows is a shortcut with a Windows key (Windows key +M)
 
Make sure that the Windows key is not stuck.
    If the problem happeneds try pressing R if it will bring up the Run Box.
This will let you verify if the Windows key is stuck or something.

Drag that left or right to decrease or increase the brightness of the screen. -- from CyberSimian in the UK

Hello!
About 6 days ago i bought a new DVD-ROM drive the Pioneer 120S and about 3 days ago i noticed that something isnt right with it. I noticed that when i tried to copy a file of 500MB to my HD, it took 15 minutes according to the dialog box i dont know if that accurate but it took very long for sure.

I did some testing and found out that if i leave the drive unused for a while 10 - 20 minutes and then try to use it it wont spin up!! IT WONT SPIN UP no matter what! even if i try to run nero speed or other benchmarking software. The drive reads the cd or dvd allright but at very low speed say 1x instead of 30x.

Now if I try the same thing soon after inserting a disc the drive performs ok.

I know that there is a silent mode for this drive which i have it disabeled.

The system as a whole is just a few days long and it performs all right.

Thank you

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!

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 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, 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. 

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad Y530 Crashed, not working, no tech support, need expert/lenovo technician advice

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.

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!

Am still setting new Yoga 910 with Windows 10-64bit and needed to reinstall the Lenovo Settings and Companion apps to get them to run (it seems after I installed the service bridge - LSB). They opened, sat thinking for a minute ot two, and returned a message that I needed to restart the PC or reinstall their drivers. Restart did not fix, so I d/l'd and reinstalled driver packages it directed me to. Problem fixed - sort of. Now, I cannot open Windows Menu and type "lenovo" to select and run either app. Nothing happens when I click them (cannot right-click to uninstall/run either). Instead, I need to open Windows Menu, scroll to Lenovo section, and run them from there. How do I fix the search --> run behavior? Is this a Cortana thing and if so how do I flush its search cache? Thanks in advance...

Answer:Lenovo ideapad 510 help

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

My father bought a Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t. Does anyone know, if the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t, can be upgraded from Win 7 Starter, to Win 7 home basic or premium? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

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

I'm thinking about getting one of these, myself.

Hi, I've a Ideapad S10 with One Key Rescue System 6.0. Its come preloaded with Windows XP Home. What are my options in changing the OS to either XP Pro or Vista Business? Will One Key still work - additional configuration tasks required? Also, whats the ti-ti-ti-ti sound that comes on system bootup and dies after 2/3 seconds? Regards,Edwin

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad S10

this is just my hunch. since lenovo is offering a licensed OS, the recovery button's software suite might be tied with it. installing another OS with an entirely different license set might not work. but then again, that is just a hunch. by the way, is you s10 heating up? as most people commented?or feared?i am planning to get one but i am not just sure if i have to settle with toaty hot nettie or maybe just buy a samsung nc10 if it won't emit too much heat.

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

I've had this lenovo ideapad 510 for 2 months and it has been nothing but trouble. I've done too many fixes for it for just 2 months but now the fan noise is really unaccceptable. With just 3 tabs open it sounds like a jet taking off and I cannot use it while watching a movie on TV because it's too loud. I have been here on this forum for over a week trying to get a solution but am getting totally ignored. I guess Lenovo's customer service is as good as their products.Please post a fix that works, otherwise let's arrange for me to return this for 50% refund so I can get a laptop that actaully works. I've read the problem is that Lenovo is not compatible with Windows 10 and that is why it's a nigthmare.Why did you release this product with these confirmed problems?1. Touchpad sometimes goes crazy and can't be used2. Unnacceptable fan noise3. Memory and Disk running at 100%I feel cheated as I'm doing more technical work to rid this laptop of problems than actaully being able to browse the net or watch anything.

I am still using Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t, with its RAM increased from initial 1 Gb to 2 Gb, and i wish to keep it like that. Currently it is run under Windows XP. When Windows 8 was released i figured out that it was not possible to upgrade cause the resolution of my netbook's screen was not supported by Windows 8. I wrote to Microsoft and they replied that that was a hardware problem and the manufacturer could have solved it through some driver development. At that time I was too busy to keep track of that development, if any. So, now Windows 10 is available. Will it run at my netbook so I could enjoy its tough screen opportunities ?

I can't seem to open this "BIOS" menu I keep hearing about, which I actually have no clue what it is. Every time I restart or turn on my computer I don't see any IBM prompt to press F1 during. A lot of people who seem to run into this issue seem to be running windows 8 but I am running windows 10 I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the problem. I don't know if the key magically got locked somehow of the key is just flat out broken but I can tell you typing in the dark is extremely frustrating.
