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, I've recently bought online a Lenovo IdeaPad 520-15IKB, i7-8550U Kaby Lake R, 15.6" Full HD, IPS, 4 GB, 2 TB HDD, nVIDIA GeForce MX150 4GB. Apparently, the laptop has no optical drive installed (see attached image below), despite the images on the website which showed an optical drive on the right side. I'd like to know if I can use any of the optical drives listed on the parts lookup page to install to this laptop. If yes, do I need a caddy to hold the optical drive? Thanks,Gabriel

Hello, I recently bought the Lenovo Yoga 510-IKB, and when I would flip the screen, it would automatically rotate the screen.After a bunch of windows 10 updates, this function was gone. I checked regedit, and the SensorPresent was set to 0. And I can't set rotate lock anymore, anywere.  I set SensorPresent to 1 manually, but that didn't change anything either. Only yesterday I got an update from Lenovo for the bios, and I am now running V.2SCN26WW. In lenovo companion I cannot find the flip option anymore. Since they used to be in Lenovo Settings. But that app is gone now. In device manager I deleted the HID-sensorcollection v2 so that it could reinstall itself, but it didn't change anything either. Not sure what I am supposed to do now besides returning the laptop to the store.

Provided you make certain you know which backup belongs to which PC there should be no problem at all. Both XP and W7 use NTFS.

Hey guys, I'm having a problem with this western digital hard drive. this is what happened:

in a rush i accidentally knocked the external drive off the system chassis, it fell 14 and a half inches onto a carpeted floor. i tried accessing the drives folders and could not, so i went into disk management to see if there was anything in there i could see, i noticed the drive was 'unallocated space' and i was asked to initialize the drive, i can't remember the 2 options i was given, basically i tried 1, and nothing happened, so i went back into disk management and tried the 2nd option, that's when the problem started happening, the LED on the drive blinks continuously, and the computer will not see that it is connected via usb, it won't even show in disk management, I've tried all the software from the WD website, but i have to select the drive to repair it, and its not showing up anywhere, it's as if it cannot connect to the computer... it has a standard sata -> usb converter..the drive doesn't vibrate or make noises or get warm at all.. is there anything i can do? what does the blinking LED signify?
 

Answer:WD Elements 3TB external USB hard drive won't connect to the computer

as i got it, the drive doesn't start. so, there's a great probability of it's bearings/axis deformed from the falling and jammed. imho, now you can only give it to repair services.

My WD Element HDD is not working after I plug it in to my WDTV unit. I tried to recover my files using PW but I'm unable recover it can anyone please help me..

How it shows in Explorer

but it does not appear in Disk Management

HDD is visible in PW

Answer:External Hard Drive (WD Elements) is visible in PW but not in explorer

Hi cobrasl,

Welcome to Ten Forums.

I have read about many people experiencing similar problems when they connected their HDD to WDTV. My quick search was unable to find any tangible solution to restore the HDD itself without resorting to a data recovery process.

I would still wait to see if anyone else comes up with solution.

Since you have attempted data recovery, I would say that you will not be able to recover the data with Partition Wizard though it shows that all your data is still there. You will have to use TestDisk to recover the data and copy it to another drive.

Preparation for Data recovery:

1. Download TestDisk for Windows from here TestDisk Download - CGSecurity ( The second in the list.)( Do not download " Windows 64 bit" - that is not for you) Extract the testdisk-7.0.win.zip to the root of your system drive C:. You will run testdisk_win.exe in the extracted testdisk-7.0 folder.
2. On another external drive to which you want to copy the data create a folder named Recovery. This will be your Destination drive and Destination folder to copy the files.

Recovery Process: To be continued after a break

Caution: Do not try to use TestDisk on your own. Wait for specific instructions that will follow.

i'm using windows 7, my external hard drive shows up in my devices and printers section but it won't show up as a drive, so i can't view any files in that external hard drive. if i put a memory card in, it shows up as a drive and a flag shows up for when i want to unplug that drive and it asks if i want to remove my external hard drive too.

normally when i turn on the external hard drive it autoplays but it doesn't do that anymore.

i don't understand why it shows up in my devices and printers but not as a drive when i open windows explorer.

i've looked into the external hard drives properties and it all says that the device is working properly.

Answer:problem with external hard drive not showing as a drive in windows 7

Go into Control Panel (classic view) ---> Administrative Tools ---> Computer Management ---> Disk Management.

In bottom-right pane, if you see a horizontal band representing a drive with no drive-letter assigned to it, that's the cause of your problem. You need to give it a drive-letter:

Right-click that horizontal band and choose "Change drive letter and paths".

Answer:Windows 7: External hard drive not showing up in my computer

People have been able to recover from "drive gone unallocated" by using MiniTool Partition Wizard.
Download here: Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition.
You can install the program in Windows, or run it off a Bootable CD or flash drive.

You then use the tool to Rebuild the MBR (assuming the disk was originally initiated MBR and not GPT.)
Directions here: How to Rebuild MBR with partition magic? Partition Wizard Rebuild MBR Video Help.

If the rebuild is successful then you need to give the partition(s) a drive letter, which you can do in PW also.

See if that works.

I am having a strange problem with my external hard drive for my backups. When I plug the drive in, it does not show up in Windows Explorer. I can make it show up by going into disk management and assigning it a drive letter, but the next time I plug it in, I have the same problem again. Any ideas why this might be occurring?
Edit: Turns out this is not limited to my backup drive. Once I assign a letter, the drives work fine. They will even keep the letter if I eject them and re-insert the USB connection, but any external media I plug in fails to assign a drive letter automatically the first time it is plugged in. While I do not see this as a huge problem, it bothers me that Windows is not working as it used to nor as it should.

Edit2: After reading some of the related forums, I realize I should be clear about a couple things. I am having this problem with drives that have already had their drivers installed in Windows. I do not get a dialog saying that Windows is installing these devices because the devices have already been installed. For some reason, their volume letter has been forgotten by Windows and I have to re-assign it. I am being careful not to use the same letter more than once. I am plugging the drives in while Windows is already running.
Any help would be greatly appreciated so that Windows will automatically assign a drive letter to a device instead of me having to manually do it when Windows forgets what letter it had assigned.

Answer:External hard drive not showing up in Windows Explorer

Windows 7 x64 Quit Assigning Drive Letters Automatically helped me solve my problem. Ran an Elevated Command Prompt and typed the following commands.mountvol.exe /n
mountvol.exe /eGuess it just needed to be reset by disabling auto mounting and re-enabling it.

Have a external hard drive that was backed up on a macbook pro
using time machine. I try to take the files out that I put on a windows 7 PC
and it wont show up in My Computer.
But it does on device manager.
is there a problem with the external hardrive?
 

Answer:Seagate FreeAgent external hard drive not showing up on Windows?

It is likely formatted as Mac OS Extended (journaled), HFS+. Windows can't natively read that.

"I try to take the files out that I put on a windows 7 PC" is a confusing statement. If you want to read the files on the drive from 7, you can't without a 3rd party tool. If you are just wanting to put stuff on there from the PC and don't care about the Mac backup, then just format the drive. Do that through Disk Management in the Admin Tools control panel.

Hi I'm Mark.

The external hard drive and the notebook is in good condition, although I can't really figure out what seems to be the problem. I am also having a theory that this might be a power supply problem.

I ordered this laptop a few months ago from Amazon and from the start it had some malfunctions like mouse glitches and speaker glitches while playing sound. I said ok I can live with that. Then progressively it started to get slower, then a few days ago the screen would suddenly turn black, so I would have to force shut down. And restarting has a 30% chance of success, if it doesn't freeze mid start-up.

Maybe both. Can someone please help and advise what to do. Thank you.

According the official technical specifications on Lenovo's website, the IdeaPad 520 (15IKB) notebook has two USB 3.0 ports and one type-C port. But on my IP 520, the two USB-A ports don't have the expected blue colour coding for USB 3.0 and also they both don't have the (SuperSpeed) SS-USB symbol. Instead they have the regular USB trident symbol. Only the type-C port has the SS-USB symbol. The Windows Device Manager lists three USB related drivers viz.Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Microsoft)USB Composite DeviceUSB Root Hub (USB 3.0) So, the IP 520 really does have two USB 3.0 ports or it's a gimmick?

Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Product specifications shows:

Similar to the RAM specs from the hardware manual (page 26):
DDR4-2133 MHz, SODIMM 1, on board 1 (max 8 GB)
 
The single available bank (page 37) which you currently have 4GB DDR4 2400 SoDIMM MEMORY 01AG707,  can be upgraded with 8GB RAM (+4GB soldered onboard) for a maximum of 12 GB as the same with 80SV00XJUS machines.
 
In general upgrade do not void the warranty as long as no parts are damaged during the upgrade.

Answer:External WD Elements HD not showing in W7

Hi djrazr,
I`m sorry to hear about such trouble with a WD drive.

Firstly, if you have another PC or if can use somebody's test the drive on it (using a different cable) and see if it works properly. After that, you do a diagnostics test with Data Lifeguard (). Do both the quick and extended tests. You can post the results here.

If the drive fails the tests and you still have warranty you can contact the warranty services department here: http://products.wdc.com/support/kb.ashx?id=Go1OXe
Keep me posted,

Hello everyone, I changed the UEFI settings in the BIOS and can not run windows and get into bios(black screen, and nothing happens). Is it possible to install the BIOS from Bootable CD ? i have found only .exe file in the drivers page. Now bios version is: 2wcn21ww  Regards,Peter

Answer:Lenovo ideapad 310 -15IKB BIOS INSTALLATION

Your BIOS is only updateable through the windows platform.Are you stating that you can not get into the BIOS settings?  Page 27 of the user guide shows how to access BIOS setup, using the Novo button, from a POWERED DOWN machine.https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/v310_14isk-15isk_ug_en.pdf

I have a problem in the touchpad, it doesn't work at all, (doesn't appear in device manager and the pointer disappears when i unplug the USB mouse) I tried all methods, the fn +f6, updated Bios, updated Drivers, re-installed Windows, even I made a test with a Linux live CD and everything worked except the touchpad. In BIOS there isn't any options regarding the touchpad as wellI was wondering if there is something needed to be enabled in firmware? I wonder. what can I do at this point, I am using an external USB mouse, but I need the touchpad to be working as well.* the laptop is new, there is no physical damage at all  

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad 310 - 15ikb 80TV - no touchpad

Hello AfahmyThanks for using the Lenovo forums.
Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)1. Turn the unit off2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter5. Turn the unit on as normal

Hi, I just got my ideapad 210 today and was wondering if it is possible to get a regular laptop charger for it. The one supllied with the machine is very short and the powerpack unit attached to the plug is incredibly bulky. Very poor design feature. I have looked online and can only find similar power supply units.I have had issues with 3rd party power supplies in the past and I was wondering if Lenovo produce a more 'old fashioned' but useful power cable?

I ordered this laptop a few months ago from Amazon and from the start it had some malfunctions like mouse glitches and speaker glitches while playing sound. I said ok I can live with that. Then progressively it started to get slower, then a few days ago the screen would suddenly turn black, so I would have to force shut down. And restarting has a 30% chance of success, if it doesn't freeze mid start-up. McAfee is newly installed and always scanning for viruses, but I can't do a full scan now without the laptop freezing and quiting. I don't know if it's a problem from windows 10 or the laptop. Maybe both. Can someone please help and advise what to do. Thank you.

Hi, I bought a new Lenovo ideapad 510-15IKB about a month ago. It has windows 10. When I click on camera app it says "we can't find your camera. Check to be sure it's connected and installed properly, that it isn't being blocked by antivirus software, and that your camera drivers are up-to-date. If you need it, here's the error code: 0xA00F4244(0xC00D36D5). I have first disabled my antivirus and tried, but that didn't work. 'I checked device manager and there I couldn't see "Imaging devices" under which camera should show up as far as I know. Then I installed the camera driver here[1] and restarted the laptop but still camera app wouldn't work and camera wasn't there under device manager. Any help to get this issue resolved would be appreciated.  [1] http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/lk/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/500-Series/510-15IKB/downloads Thanks,Devni

Hi friends. I am using Lenovo Ideapad 310-15IKB running on Windows 10 64-bit, Anniversary Update. Lately, I got a BIOS update through? Companion app which said "System is not UEFI", since I was using Legacy mode. So I converted my disc from MBR to GPT using AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional software. But after converting I noticed that some of the hotkeys like airplane mode, disable mic, disable camera, disable touchpad are not working (Disable toucpad did work, but the disabled icon wasn't displayed). So then I reverted back to Legacy mode using same software. But still it didn't work. I tried reinstalling all the drivers from the Lenovo support website. But still it didn't work. Is there any solution for this problem? Some keys like volume and brightness still work.

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?

Hi,I bought a new Ideapad 320, which came with DOS based OS. I was trying to install windows 10 on that. I created a bootable USB through Rufus. But I was not able to boot from that, however I was able to boot another dell laptop with the USB. Then I created a bootable DVD and tried to boot, but again the ODD was not listed on the boot manager (this was because by default the Boot Mode was UEFI). So I changed that to Legacy and I was able to boot through DVD. I installed Windows 10 but I had problem with USB and Camera. USB was working in mass staorage mode, but when I connected wireless keyboard/mouse's receiver, USB Headset; none of them got identified. In device manager I see "Port Reset Failed" for USB. I tried updating the USB drivers but nothing worked. I think I should install windows in UEFI mode. But in UEFI mode I am not able to boot from USB. I tried creating USB for UEFI through Rufus also I tried to create that manually using Diskpart and manually copying the ISO content, but unfortunately nothing is working. I do not know whats the issue. Can someone guide me how to created bootable USB to be used to install Windows 10 PRO x64 in UEFI mode.

Hi everyone! I purchased a 520-15IKB roughly a month ago. I've been really satisfied with it so far but for some reason it does not restart. I've tried using the CMD commands to restart and obviously the restart option from the start menu but it shuts down instead of restarting. This has resulted in the "restart to complete update" notifications not going away. It's been this way out of the box. It also keeps freezing while gaming and the only way to recover it was to force a shutdown by long-pressing the power key. Are any of these known issues? Any fixes?

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad 520-15IKB 80YL shutting down instead of restarting.

Maybe try using OneKey Recovery to restore device to the factory state (it will remove all your files).

I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad 310 about a month ago, shortly after installing all reccomended updates on the Lenovo companion app, including reccomended BIOS and Windows 10 updates my laptop has started getting semi random freezes. When a freeze occurs the entire system locks up, the sound makes a very short interval constant loop, and I have to preform a full reboot. It seems to happen more frequently when playing certain games (CSGO, Left 4 Dead 2) Less frequently when playing less demanding games (Starbound, Minecraft) however sometimes it feels like it can happen at any time as it has happened a few times just browsing the internet or once while idle and downloading something in the background.Sometimes I can tell when it's about to happen. In the case where the computer is about to freeze while playing CSGO I lose connection to the server, the game tell's me it's attempting to reconnect, every time I see this the computer goes into the freeze 5-10 seconds later, This morning I was fast enough to alt tab before the freeze and noticed that my laptop said it was still connected to the internet just before it then froze and I had to reboot I have no idea what could possibly be causing this but wanted to know what my options are or wether anybody else was experiencing similar constant and seemingly random freezes

Hi, I would like to ask everyone with this model in particular. Mine is less than a year old. I noticed at times that the CPU Fan would "whine-up" and would make this high-pitch noise like the CPU is on full-load. I have read that it could be a sign of a failing CPU-Fan or other issues with the motherboard. I checked the temperatures, everything are within normal parameters, and even ran a diagnostic test using the native Lenovo Vantage App, but it didn't find anything unusual.  Note: It doesn't constantly makes noise, just at random, sometimes even during tasks like openning a browser or just browsing through my files.

I can see it under the disk management, but there is no drive letter assigned so I cannot access it.

If there's no letter assigned to it then it's hidden. Right click on it -> Change Drive Letter.... then assign a letter for it.

So I recently purchased and installed a new hard drive in my PS3. To do that I had to reformat my Western Digital 250 GB hard drive to FAT32 format. Ok, so that's all well and good but I then decided to take my PS3, 60 GB HD (the brand escapes me, but it's a big manufacturer of hard drives) and put it in an external hard drive enclosure. I figured that it's a perfectly good hard drive so there was no sense wasting it. Anyway, as technologically impaired as I might sound after this (which I'm really not) I feel compelled to divulge that I actually did not know that two external hard drives shouldn't be too close to each other. As soon as I put one on top of the other, the 60 GB hard drive beeped and a message popped up saying it needed reformatting. So after reformatting everything a second time, I plugged in the hard drives and the 60 GB one showed up but my 250 GB one did not. It's showing up everywhere else (disk management, device manager) but not in My Computer. So I have no access to it at all. Also, I did not need to reformat the 250 GB HD since my computer gave me no message indicating that I should. I'd rather only use reformatting as an absolute last resort since it takes HOURS but if it's necessary that I'll have to break down. Throw other options at me first though.

If I lost you in the midst of all that jumble, tell me, I'd be happy to explain further.
