Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 500-15IBD loses speed when plugged in

Question: Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 500-15IBD loses speed when plugged in

My Yoga 500 ideapad totally loses it when I plug it into power. The CPU slows down imidiately and runs at 100% usage every time I make an action (opens Chrome takes like 30 seconds). In Speccy, I can see, that the CPU runs at a speed of approx. 500 Mhz (Core speed). If I unplug the laptop, the speed goes up to like 1,9 Ghz when I opens chrome (chrome opens instantly) and CPU usage maxes out at 40% or so. I can now close Chrome, plug in the laptop once again, and if I open chrome now,it maxes out at 500 Mhz speed with 100% CPU usage. I have just completely reinstalled windows (10, 64 bit) hoping that this would solve the problem. But it haven'tI have downloaded ALL the drivers and software possible from Lenovos own support page for my laptop, I have ran numerous tests from Lenovo, and other thirdparty applications, no one in which finds any problems. What should I do? I have done everything in my power to try and fix this problem. I have tried every possibly advanced power options, I have even changed the "when plugged in" power options to match the "on battery" ones, but without any change in performance. I cannot figure out, if this is a problem with my power supply? Or the CPU itself? And no tests suggests any problems... Anyone able to help me out with troubleshooting? (Yes, I have restarted multiple times, I have updated everything in windows update and drivers using Lenovo support page and a third party driver update software (driverbooster from iobit)).

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.)

Didn't realize the laptop was unplugged and went completely dead sitting there for a month. Went to plug in to power up and nothing. Thought maybe cat chewed on charger cable and tested it and was only pulling 4v vs the 20v it's supposed to but tried new charger that Lenovo sent and still nothing. I've heard battery could be un-chargeable if left to completely die and sit for a while but still don't get why laptop won't boot up when plugged in.  Am I dealing with something else internal in addition to a dead battery?

I was wondering if anyone has upgraded or swapped out their hdd for a solid state drive on the Ideapad 305 15IBD? My specific model number is 80NJ00F5UK, I have been able to find an mSata ssd drive which says its compatible with the 305 IBD, but not the exact model number above.  To be honest Im pretty happy with the performance of the 1TB hdd that i have but just want to confirm whether its possible or not to swap out for an ssd if I wanted to in the future.  The main reason would be to squeeze a bit more battery life, as its one area where the laptop is a bit weak. mSata SSDhttps://www.ipc-computer.eu/notebook-spareparts/lenovo/300-serie/ideapad-305-15ibd-80nj005j/hdd-12

Answer:LENOVO Yoga 500-15IBD

Hi mariuszwol5, Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums. Based on what I've found out, seems like both models has same specs as you have mentioned. If I'm not mistaken, the difference here is that, the 80N60084PB has this FRU : 18201638, whereas, the 80N6006FPB does not. FRU : 18201638Description : LGD LP156WF4-SPL1 FHD AG S LED1 NB LCDCommodity Code :  LCD PANELS Also checking on the price of the part itself, based on ebay, it is around USD $99.00. Which as per google, 400 PLN = 98.21 USD.  Hope this helps!

Hi, I've tried looking for tech specs (I know the hardware specs) for the monitor so I can work out what pen/stylus would be best for the touch screen. However, I can not find this particular product (spec specific) on the website.  If anyone could help me out that would be great, Ideally I'd like something with pressure levels as I do digitally draw from time to time, and would be helpful whilst writing. But would settle for something that isn't due to owning a GFX tablet anyway. Also, I'm unsure if this ideapad is referred to as a 15, 500 or 8 due to not know where this terminology is based from (model name, model series ect) seems unclear, perhaps I'm just looking into it too much and it is just a 500. Thanks to anyone that spends time reading, and thanks in advance for advice. ~Kris

Then installed Win 8.1 and made the external screen work...for about 5 minutes. Then installed Win 10 but external screen still ot working, tried at least 4 different VGA drivers, updated BIOS, etc. My conclusion is that there are serious driver issues with this laptop, Win 7 do not even bother trying.  Try Win 8.1 or 10 and let me know if you can use HDMI to project screen ,and the driver version you use! Thanks

Hi, I got a problem with my laptop. The fan is making loud noise everytime I open a new window, a new tab, any setting window and so.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 500-15IBD loud fan noise

Hi Nstant,  Most probably a program or App is running at the background cause fast spinning fan to cool down CPU temp.  To figure it out, right click in your taskbar and from the opened menu click on task manager.  -From top menu click on performance tab then click on resource monitor ==> from top menu click on CPU tab and look at to the Average CPU usage and see which App or Program is using a high percentage of your CPU capacity==> right click on it and end the process.  .Regards,  **If the issue has been resolved please, mark me as solution provided to help others find the solution easily and click the Kudos.**

Hello All, I have a problem with my new Ideapad 100-15IBD that I received today. Wireless or Ethernet connection is horribly slow - I have 50Mb/s connection and laptop is using 4-5Mb/s max (just to mention even Chrome download takes about an hour with this connection speed/quality). I have it with W10, but also formatted and installed W7 to check, if maybe it's faulty Realtek drivers (I tried both from Lenovo Support website and Realtek ones). On both versions of Windows the problem occurs. I am now back to W10, so it's as fresh as it gets. I tried different settings of Network Card, tried looking through forums about similar problems, but can't find anything, so I was wondering if anyone, preferably Support Team, has any tips or ideas why it's like this. The Network adapters I see are:Bluetooth devices x2 (not important for me at this point I believe)Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller (tried meddling with this one, now working on default as it's fresh installation)Realted RTL8723BE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NICI of course got it from retail, it's brand new, so I do not see how it could be broken already (talking about network adapter), so I thought that it's maybe software problem? Also - I noticed it's working even worse on 802.11n only than mixed. Thanks for any tips,c. PS. Sorry for my English, I'm not native speaker (Polish).

Hi,
I recently upgraded my Lenovo Yoga 15-IBD to an SSD, with a complete reinstall of Windows. Everything was working great; boot times were quicker and the system was far more responsive. However, the computer randomly freezes now, without any warning. I have to do a hard reset. Reliability monitor gives no clues of what the problem might be. The SSD is brand new, and passed a 'long' test this morning.

I have no idea where to go next; I seems that there is one problem after another with this laptop!

Thanks for your help!

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 500-15IBD Freezes Randomly after SSD Upgrade

Hi soopg.

When it freezes is there anything being logged in the event viewer? (System / Application / Other)

Have you looked at your Storage drivers. Before attempting to update please ensure you have an Image you can fall back to if required. While investigating would also be a good idea to have data backed up. You said this was a clean install so you likely have that point covered.

If you don't have a tool you could check out Macrium Reflect. Free, reliable and tutorial with forum.

You may wish to check out the Driver Verify process.

This tutorial will guide you through the verification process, heed the warnings. Assuming it fails follow the posting instruction in the BSOD section of forum.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable in Windows 10

The tutorial states make a restore point. Seems to be a lot of people having issues using restore points hence have an Image.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 500 15IBD mystery restarts (BSOD)

Is this while running idle or under load? What surface is it being used on? (getting at ventilation) Leaning towards heat, but could be power issues or something else. Scape that, just noticed the dropbox links (its been one of those days) if memory serves bad_pool_caller is a processor 'misfire' Check in device manger that the processor is running correctly (ie flags 'device is working properly' this is stated in the devices properties (right click DM entry) ) if need be,uninstall, and have windows install them (this can be done in the right click menu of the device in DM selecting 'update driver software') Normally if this doesn't fix the issue its very often software based, ie something installed is causing the issue, bad drivers probably the top contributors, but not exclusively. Posting the .dmp file (google is your friend) would almost certainly flag the culprit.

Hello!I write here with a problem that I have since the day before yesterday.When my Laptop is on and the charger is plugged in, the battery won't charge, giving the notification "plugged in, not charging". Laptop works like the charger wasn't plugged - energy drains from battery.I suppose that is a software problem, because when laptop is turned off or hibernated it charges normally.Formating didn't help at all.Microsoft support told me to recalibrate battery - didn't work.Lenovo support told me to try another charger in service - I will try if nothing else works.Maybe someone had the problem like that and solved it without going to service, which I want to keep as a last resort solution.Thanks in advance!

Hi AhmedMagdyy,Have checked in Lenovo Settings app if Conservation Mode is enabled. Conversation mode is under the battery icon of the app. If enabled, kindly disable the feature. Conservation mode helps extend the battery life of the tablet/laptop by limiting the max charge the battery can hold. Hope this helps.Cheers,

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. Should I try buying another charger? Please resond to this as I'm desperate. Thanks much !

Hello, I noticed this afternoon that the battery indicator in the system tray was at less than full and the status message reads "95% - Plugged in, not charging." This was not the case previously, and I haven't changed any battery or system settings that would affect this. I've only owned the computer for about a month or two and I'm concerned that there may be a problem with the battery. I looked up this issue online and attempted to uninstall and reinstall the driver that affects battery control in System Settings, but there was no change to this behaviour. Is there a way to test if the battery is damaged? What other problems could I be having that would produce this effect?

Answer:plugged in , not charging lenovo ideapad 500 15isk

Hi Mina,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
1)  Shut down the computer.
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 hope the above information helps.

Shashi

I've got a Yoga 11s which is barely a few months old and hasn't seen much use. Having the same problem - it won't power on or charge (powers on only when plugged in). In Lenovo Energy Manager battery status shows "Good" and charging status shows "Battery Connected". WIndows power management icon however, shows Plugged-in, not charging. Never had that problem before either, but it came with the power-on failure so I guess they're related.
 
I see Yoga 2 got a nice firmware update that fixes that - guess I'm skrewed then, 'cause according to Lenovo's support page for 11s "Bios update is not required for this product". Well, I beg to differ.
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-11s-notebook-ideapad
 
Desperate/silly question: there's no chance Yoga 2 firmware is going to work for this model, is there ? I'll disassemble it and re-plug the battery as instructed as a last resort, but a permanent software solution would be welcome.

I just bought a manufacturer refurbished Lenovo Ideapad U430p. The description said the only problems were tiny scratches, they never mentioned the laptop would have charging problems. I have tried everything, from changing enenrgy management to shutting down the laptop and charging it that way, but I keep getting the same result, the slow blinking orange light on the side of my laptop, indicating that the laptop is charging but battery power is being discharged, making it really hard to actually charge the laptop. I plugged it in straight out of the box and it immediatley stopped charging at 5%. Thats it. Then I used it a little bit and I guess I did something because then it dropped to 4% and now I am completley hopeless because school is about to start up again and I'm not going to have a laptop. Please help! And I really don't want to have to send this laptop back so please try and think of somethings else! Also it is an internal battery. Thank you,Cavrae1 P.S. Everything says the laptop is charging. The battery meter on the bottom right hand cornor of the screen, and the energy management says charging so it's not the common charger plugged in not charging issue.

Hi, I had the problem where the battery didn't charge at all even if it was connected in the right way and the charger was plugged in. So I started to search internet for possible solutions. Those I found where to 1) disable alt uninstall ac and acpi adapter in Windows Device Manager. Restart computer.. Not charging problem is related to some Windows issue. 2) Choose the alternative "maximum battery life" in Lenovo Energy management.. Neither worked after several and time consuming tries... The problem here is Lenovos "smart" Energy management system that prevents the computer from charging the battery to "save it".. Solution: Uninstall Energy Management (Publisher: Lenovo) under Program and Features in Windows Control Panel and the problem is solved.. And don't reinstall this program again....

hi john_i,
 
Try performing a system power drain,
  Remove the Battery and AC charger,
          Hold the power button down for 15 sec.
             Reconnect the battery and AC and turn the system on, Check if the charging will continue.
If not try removing the AC and see if the the computer will shut off.
      If yes then you might need to replace the battery.

My Lenovo YOGA 900-13ISK is a fairly new  (bought and registered Feb. 2016) laptop. Used very little, but plugged in all the time to the power source. I just finished the most recent Windows 10 Update around 7:00 pm EST on May 11, 2016. After it rebooted, I noticed the BATTERY indicator icon showing 95% in the GREEN icon. The black and white smaller battery icon shows 95% Available (Plugged in, not charging)! Both have been stuck in this position for over two hours. I just had not noticed this before, so not sure when this issue started. I can use some help in how to resolve this problem. Thank you very much.

Hi!My Yoga 500-15ISK Laptop seems to have a battery issue. For some time now, whenever I plug my laptop into the AC power, I get this message, e.g. "(% charge) available, (plugged in, charging)", however for some reason, the battery level actually stays the same even after a significant amount of time of being plugged in to the AC supply. Moreover, the battery icon initially shows the animated one which indicates charging is indeed in progress, then after a few moments, it will freeze on the estimated level.Before this, my laptop's battery usually charges relatively quickly. Also, I have not turned on the Conservation Mode so it must charged up beyond 50-60% especially if I leave it plugged in overnight. This issue is really bewildering me right now. Any comments or suggestions on how I can address this issue?Thanks!Other notes re my laptop:It's been around 10 months since I've bought it and I have encountered this issue only a few days ago.I have no other issues with it.

Hi, I have a lenovo ideapad u410, it is about 2 years old now, and I've been having charging problems. This started last year, where my laptop would be plugged in and down on the battery icon it would say that it's "plugged in, not charging." The battery would deplete completely, and when I try to charge it, the light would just blink.This eventually went away after about a month, I didn't do anything, and I could use my laptop again. However now it's back, at first I thought it was my charger, but I removed my battery and plugged it in and I can use my laptop without the battery. I tried to replace the battery, but it still did not charge. When I plug it in with a battery in the laptop, it will only blink a few times then stop entirely. Do I need to download any battery management drivers? I don't know what the problem is.

Hi Prachiparekh,
                           
Welcome to Lenovo forums.
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with system plugged In not charging message in your Lenovo Y50-70 laptop.
 
This might be due to energy management  so pls do check that under the battery menu in LEM, IT IS SET TO 'MAXIMUM BATTERY LIFE' to enable charging to 100%, not Optimised battery health as this will allow your battery to have a longer lifespan.
 
Also try to reinstall the energy management driver and check for the issue.
 
Click here for the power management, if the operating system is windows 7.
 
Click here for the power management, if the operating system is windows 8.1.

Whenever I start my laptop, within 2 or 3 minutes of being at the login screen, my laptop freezes, to the point where nothing will work, including the mouse, touchpad or keyboard. This only occurs when it is plugged in with the AC adapter, and no battery pack in. However, I am able to prevent this from happening only when i start my computer with the battery pack, at which point I can unplug the battery pack and plug in the AC adapter.

I had this problem. It is related to Lenovo Power Management, and the electricity used by your house.You have to unnistall the Lenovo Power Management, and install the last driver.Buy an UPS (Uninterruptible power supply). I believe that's the only solution.Since I bought my computer in US, when it came to my country there were a difference between electricity, which was causing that problem. I have an UPS for all my system, especially for Y510P, and it's really rare to happen

Hi maoxiaomin,Thanks for posting and welcome to the community. Based from your post does sound a bit similar to a machine I have which is the Y500. In my case I had to send my machine in to servie for board replacement as they detected it to be faulty. However in your case, I'm not saying that this is the exact same case but let look at the the possibilities first and if all still fails you'll need to contact our service team for further diagnosis.Understandably we've established that you've update the BIOS, battery firmware and ever rest you BIOS.Firsting first though could you uninstall the Lenovo energy mangement and reinstall it back from the Link belowWin8 :http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/em8.08.0.2.4.exeWin8.1http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/em8180214.exeHope this helps and please do post back your results.Regards

This happens anytime, whetherthe battery is fully charged or low. The power adapter charges the battery to full charge so the adapter appears towork. This problem started happening only in the last month. Have had this computer for 2 years. This prevents mefrom using the computer when the battery is low because plugging in the power adapter shuts down the display. Anyone know what is causing this problem?  Thanks in advance for any new info.

I even took it to a local Best Buy and attempted to charge it with a different charger but no dice.I'm pretty sure I need to set up an RMA to send it in but I have been stuck on hold with Lenovo for 1 hour and 15 minutes now without any kind of response. I'm hoping someone on here can offer some assistance. It's difficult to post to this forum from my smartphone.

Hi everyone, I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad 100-15IBD, it's supposed to be equipped with an SDD of 126 GB and an HDD, but all I see is the SDD even when I open Disk Management I can't seem to find it as if it wasn't equipped on the PC.Thank you for your help

Answer:Where is my HDD Ideapad 100-15IBD

Hi lamradnane , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would you have the machine number (check on the machine number from the sticker or check it from here ,just keep your serial number confidential) .  It would appear similar to this 80QQ00CQUK  .
 
Physical devices detected by the machine should show in the BIOS . Turning off the system and using the Novo key to power on would give Novo Menu that offers BIOS set up as this can also be verified within windows under device manager if recognized.
 
The parts lookup page would also be able to verify the devices /parts using the machine number or SN. 
 
Update us as soon as convenient. 
 
Regards

I have a  Lenovo Yoga 710 (IdeaPad), a few weeks ago I was working on it, and suddenly (and with NO reason) it died, so I sent it to the Repair center 3 weeks ago because its NEW, and still in warranty. I've reviewed the repair status several times, but the last update was on July 31st, and it seems that the part needed to repair my machine is unavailable. I use my PC on a daily basis and it is really affecting my work/studies (I'm a PhD student)! Moreover I'm finishing my Fellowship in the US en returning back to Argentina by September 15th, so I really, REALLY, need your help! I've phoned several times to the Lenovo service center, but nobody gave me a helpful answer. What can I do to get my PC back before my flight date?

I have been considering purchasing a Windows RT device as a replacement for my aging windows 7 laptop. I am especially interested in an RT device because of their portability, simplistic nature, and above all, price. A windows RT device is also optimal for me because I only do a number of things on my laptop, such as browsing, Microsoft Office work, and using a number of light desktop applications that could be easily replaced with applications from the windows 8 store. Therefore, I don't think it makes much sense for me to bother purchasing a high power laptop running the full version of Windows 8. I should also mention that I am a student. I have narrowed hunt down to two Windows RT devices: The Microsoft Surface, and the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11.
I like the Surface because of its beautiful industrial design, decent display, touch covers, and all the extra touches that Microsoft put into the device to make it special and unique. However, my greatest concern is typing on the touch cover; specifically, I worry that typing on my lap will be a painful process. 95% of my work on my Laptop is done with it in my lap while sitting on the couch, rather then having it rested on a table. Therefore, if the device does not sit well in my lap, it is significantly less valuable to me.
Before you mention the Ideapad Yoga's price, you should know that I have family connections to Lenovo, which allows me to get the Yoga for the same price as the Microsoft Surface. I especially like the Yoga be... Read more

Answer:Surface RT vs. Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11

I would tell you, like all people to jump ship and abandon RT. Why would you want a limited OS when you can get a tablet running an atom for the same price? The Surface is a beautifully built machine and I really like the yoga's hardware design, but 799$ for a windows RT computer is laughable. I bought the HP envy x2 and love it. If you want a premium device with a decent keyboard, nice all-aluminum design and full windows 8, I recommend the HP envy x2. Also the Acer Iconia w510 is a great tablet for 599$ you get 64Gb running windows 8 and ASUS has the vivotab smart for 499$ with 64 Gb and an atom and I think they have the weird keyboard/cover thing that the surface has as well. If you REALLY wanted a surface I would say its not a bad choice but the yoga is. But I'll say it again, why limit yourself with RT when you can buy windows 8. Samsung and Acer are already not doing RT anymore because they said consumers don't see the value in it and its because there is no value in it, not when an atom tablet costs the same amount. That's my 2 cents but I have some programs like putty, matlab, office 2013 academic,
visual studio pro running on my tablet. The thing I will tell and think hard about this, are you sure there aren't ANY x86 programs you might want like turbotax, office pro, firefox, google chrome, vlc, utorrent just to name a few?

Answer:LENOVO IDEAPAD YOGA 11 2696

Good day and welcome to the community.Sorry you're having difficulty.
Since you can't get into Windows to (re)start the recovery/restore process, you might need to do so from the Boot Menu as described on page 23 of the user guide: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_yoga_11_ug_v1.0_may_2012_english.pdf
 
I've never seen or used a Yoga 11 / Windows RT model, but you could try pressing Fn+F12 when you see the Lenovo boot splash screen to see if you get the Boot Options menu described. I don't know if you'd be given any options to retain any files or settings from this kind of restore/recovery, so please use caution.
 
Hope this helps you a bit.Regards.

Where can the contents of "C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo" be downloaded on the drivers support site?  (Intelligent Touchpad, Lenovo Transition, MotionControl, YouCam, etc.) Thanks!

Answer:Ideapad Yoga lenovo software

'evening...
welcome to the community.
 
i haven't seen a support/driver matrix for the Yoga yet. i'd suspect that it will be reachable from here:
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&LegacyDocID=NOTE-MATRIX
at some point since the machine is now officially available today.
 
if you have the machine, have you looked at the D: drive? as i understand IdeaPads, that's typically where the preload software installers are located.
 
cheers.

Hi, My name is jenny , i am having a major issue with my Lenovo Ideapad yoga 13 and was wondering if anyone could help me diagnose the problem. First the problem started when the laptop refused to turn on.So the lenovo laptop will not power up whatsoever even with a charger plugged in or with the battery removed and the charger plugged in. I replaced the battery and it turned on immidently but the battery slowly died and refused to charge. Now i am back to square one. I replaced the internal power jack where you plug the charger in and it still will not turn on and there is no lights indicating any power at all. Is is possible that a internal power cord can cause a battery to stop charging. Does anyone knwo what this could be? I know the computer motherboard is ok because when i replaced the battery the computer came on right away and the computer was fine but the battery refuses to charge. 

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 Issue

Hello Jenny, welcome to the forum.
 
Just a thought, but are you able to try another charger and/or charging cable? The fault may lie with one of these, rather than with the Yoga 13 itself?

Hi all,  I've recently purchased the Ideapad yoga 13 secondhand without the backlit keyboard. I'm curious whether if I can replace my current keyboard with one that is backlit. Your responses will help me as I like to work in dim lit rooms more than brightly lit ones and a backlit keyboard will help me with productivity. Thank you! 

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad yoga 13 keyboard

hello
 
i am not sure but if you can find a keyboard with backlight have a look to see if your current keyboard has the same connections http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Black-Keyboard-for-Lenovo-Yoga-3-Pro-2-in-1-ultrabook-Backlit-UK-S... link might be the one you are after but double check
