Cant download and open games on my Lenovo IdeaPad ...

Question: Cant download and open games on my Lenovo IdeaPad ...

I just bought a N20P for my wife. Great Chromebook, very happy with everything. But she is addicted to games such as Candy Crush and Solitaire. I went to download both from Google App Store but I was unable to open either. When I checked, it didn't give me an option to download it to the Chromebook, only option was for a cellphone which has since been thrown out. Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem?

Preferred Solution: Cant download and open games on my Lenovo IdeaPad ...

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.)

Hello i have problem with blackbars in games on resolution 4:3,I have Nvidia gtx 960MIntel HD graphics 530windows 10 home 64bit i dont have anymore options in control panel nvidia than Settings 3D,changing settings in control panel intel hd graphics its dont working in games.how can i repair this problem? Thanks for help, ZWIERZ

Answer:Lenovo y700-15isk ideapad blackbars in games

This is pretty common with many of my own older games, many of which don't natively support 16:9 aspect ratios. Go through your game's settings and make sure you can't adjust the game's resolution to your screen's native resolution, or any other 16:9 aspect ratio resolution, such as 1024576, 1152648, 280720, 1366768, 1600900, 19201080, 25601440 and 38402160, not exceeding your rig's maximum. (Mine only goes up to 1920x1080). If not, you have 2 less than ideal options: You can look for a game patch or tweak that enables widescreen resolutions. WSGF dot ORG is a good place to look. Sometimes game HUD elements get stretched but the primary graphics get rendered right, or some other side-effect; the site above lists known issues to each of their fixes. BUT, if you're not careful, you can mess up your game, so back up the entire game / game settings folder(s) / registry before applying any changes. Or, if the game is old enough / undemanding enough to run using your rig's on-board Intel graphics rather than the Nvidia GPU, you can use Intel's* scaling settings and stretch-to-fit, which will fill the screen and the black bars... but stretch the images and "fatten" everything.  * If there is a way to do this with the Nvidia Contol Panel, I haven't dug deep enough to discover it. To make the game run on Intel Graphics: - Right-Click a blank spot on your desktop, Select Intel's "Graphics Options > Panel Fit > Scale Fullscreen"&n...

Hallo, i would like to buy netbook Lenovo ideaPad S10e. But S10e have 1024 x 576th display resolution.  On the Internet I found a notice that it probably will not run most games and programs. It's true? And, where appropriate, the game on the run?

Answer:Lenovo ideapad S10e display resolution (programs/games)

The 640x480 will run for shure.

My R9 M375 in my lenovo y700 laptop seems to have a problem, while in game and under load, the GPU keeps going from 820mhz to 1005mhz, this manifests as stutter in games and annoys me quite a lot. Here is a picture of gpu-z while playing a game.And also why does the gpu usage vary that much under the same loadIt is supposed to stay at a 1005 mhz at all tims under a game.

Answer:Why does my Lenovo Ideapad Y510P lag (whilst playing games), when it's not plugged in?

I'm not an expert, but as far as I know if the power cable is not plugged in then you cannot use the SLI, so only one card is working. But I may be wrong, correct me this case.

Hello, I have been experiencing a very frustrating issue with my new Ideapad Y510 which I had purchased just a few days ago.  Minutes into playing games, my screen would suddenly turn black and my system would restart.  I have been conducting extensive research into this problem and notice that many others experience the same. As far as I know, all of my drivers are updated. Please look into this problem.  Unfortunately, I am very close to sending this PC for a refund.   Daniel.

Answer:Brand new Lenovo Ideapad Y510 crashing while playing games

Hi Daniel,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your new Y510 Laptop is restarting while playing games. Please let me know if the system is restarting because of increase in CPU/GPU temperature increase also would suggest you to check using the Laptop on a Flat Surface to make good air ventilation and check if there is any Dust/Foreign particles stuck in the air vents. Please let me know the findings.
 
Hope to hear back soon
 
Best Regards
Shiva Kumar

My Lenovo Ideapad Z710 (Windows 10) works just fine most of the time, but when I try to play games, first some individual pixels and as time goes on the entire screen starts flickering until it?s almost impossible to play. If I turn off my graphics card, a NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M , it worked fine again. Now first of all, it would be nice to know whether anyone knows what the cause of this first problem is and how to fix it, as I would like to be able to use my regular graphics card when playing (enables me to play on a higher resolution). Added to that, I?ve now noticed that on other games, there is a flickering, without the pixel flickering first, no matter whether or not I deactivate my graphics card. Anyone have an idea where this problem could stem from?

When I first had this problem it would only freeze once a day. Now it happens everytime I try to play a game. I have seen some other posts on this forum to try to fix my problem but I still haven't found a fix. I have reinstalled windows, moved some games to my ssd, updated BIOS, updated graphics card drivers / downgrade drivers, etc and the problem continues to happpen. This it what actually happens: Im like 1 min into the game and then all of a sudden the whole laptop freezes and the audio from the game keeps on repeating. The laptop doesn't let me alt + tab, alt + F4, the mouse and keyboard doesn't work at all, I'm forced to do a force shut down. This problem only happens when I'm using the AMD grahics. If I play a game on the intel graphics it won't freeze but the game is barley even playable.I really want this problem fixed!  Please help me.

I have a Ideapad Y500 with dual 650M graphic cards but all games I have tested so far start to lag after 2-5 minutes, they work flawless before that but then something happens. The games I have tried is Boarderlands 2, Neverwinter nights and World of warcraft. I have read most of the forums and reinstalled a huge number of Nvidia driver versions, but nothing change anything. The only thing that work is to not us SLI mode but that doesnt feel OK when you have paid extra for a seconds graphic card. I use Windows 8.1 and have done the update fix so I can use graphics cards in SLI more again. Someone have any idea what it can be?

I have bought several download games from Pogo, and they were all working for awhile. Then they just stopped working. I emailed pogo tech support and they sent me back some lame fix that didn't work and they said if it didn't work than it must be my computer but the problem with that is that they won't work on any computer I use. I tried to load them on several other computers and they still won't open. It's weird because the task manager says the game is open, but nothing shows up on my screen, even when I let it set for a long time, and its kind of hacking me off because I've paid for a bunch of games that are basically useless now and pogo is useless. Please help if you can!!!

Im very sorry to hear that but,
   You will have to call Lenovo Technical Support first for you to have the case logged,
this will serve as the Sales Team reference as Technical Support check about your concern with the computer as it may be resolved over the phone(Software or Settings problem)  or the system really needs replacement if having hardware Issues.
 
Can you share the problems you have with the system maybe we can help.

Good evening, It's more about notifying (and perhaps helping other people): using latest NVidia from Lenovo on an Ideapad Y700-15ISK (GeForce GTX 960M) gives poor performances with Windows 10 Creators Fall Update on old games such as Wolfenstein Enemy Territory or Sven-Co-Op; I had an older build before and it was running well.Updating to latest NVidia drivers through GeForce Experience, fixed.Had stable 125 FPS (with Lenovo drivers from October 2016), after Creators with Lenovo 25-40 FPS, and now again 125 FPS with latest non-Lenovo NVidia drivers.

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad Y580, Video Games getting Shivers and Hiccups, (Video freezing/Audio Looping Problem)

hi UncleAli,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Your issue might be similar to this thread.
 
Getting artifacts while playing games is mostly a sign that the GPU is failing. To verify this, try to:
1. Download and install Passmark's BurnInTest standard edition.
2. After installing, It will then create a shotcut on the desktop. Right click on the Passmark BurnIntest shortcut, configure it to use with the Nvidia Graphics Processor and run a burn-in test on GPU (2D and 3D tests)
 
If the GPU is fine, the burn in test shouldn't show any artifacts.
- Link to picture
 
If the GPU is failing, you will notice artifacts on the 2D/3D test.
- Link to picture
 
If you get the artifacts while doing the GPU test, I recommend you contact Lenovo and report the issue.
 
As for the COM Surrogate problem, check this website for a possible fix (this is for Vista but also applies to Win7).

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?m sorry to hear that the computer is not booting to windows normally. I suggest you to reset the BIOS to its defaults and let me know if the issue persists.
 
Hope to hear back soon

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!

 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.

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.

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!

When I try to download .exe files, my computer either saves it as 0KB or downloads it and then doesn't let me open the file. No windows pop up to tell me the file is forbidden or anything - clicking just doesn't get a response. I don't think this has to do with the browser I'm using, because this happens on Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer, but for some reason my computer can open .exe files other people downloaded and put on thumb drives for me. This problem possibly predates my installation of Windows 7. (I've had this problem for over a year and a half but decided to find it entertaining rather than annoying enough to fix.)

I use Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and have an out of date version of Avast on my computer (I would uninstall it, but that requires an .exe file on their website), if that's relevant.

When you download something, click Save, and either save to Desktop or Documents,.normally Documents unless told otherwise.
Next click Open and you will see the item/program you downloaded. Next Right click the Icon and click on Properties.
You may see, near the bottom, a box that says Unblock, Click on that and then click Apply.

Hi there! This Saturday I received my new Ideapad 700 and I couldn't be more happy about it (just moved to the UK and didn't have a laptop/pc for 3 weeks) but there seems to be an issue I just can't resolve. Let's get to the problem :  The first thing I did was to make sure that all my drivers were up to date and all the necessary updates were done. After that I proceeded to download Smite to test out how this entry level gaming machine was performing in a relatively light game. After booting it up and making sure that all the settings were set to max I tried playing a practice match against bots to see if there are any issues. At first everything was perfect, getting 85 FPS+ and very happy about it, but then I noticed random stuttering. What seems to be causing it are new "new" icons on the screen. For instance when I open up the shop menu,or when an enemy is being killed my screen just freezes sometimes for 0.5 seconds and sometimes for even more than 1. At first I thought that this was internet lag but then, after installing Portal (yes, the 2007 Portal) to see if either my internet connection or the graphics were causing it I noticed the same thing when something "new" was happening.  Solutions I've tried. Downloaded and installed every update for Windows. Uninstalled and reinstalled Nvidia drivers Set the Nvidia GPU as my main GPU on every game I've tried (Note that this is quite likely not the cause of the problem s...

I just did a quick Google search and this is the first review I found. "Its Intel integrated graphics will predictably not satisfy gamers ..." Three years ago when your laptop CPU was released, it was a low end CPU.  It's fine for the internet or email but it is not intended to be used for gaming.   The Core i3 is a low end CPU and your laptop does not have a separte Nvidia or AMD GPU for graphics.  You should not be expecting much for frame rates when trying to play a game.

Hello my Ideapad 700-15ISK is having issues when playing games on 50% and lower battery, even when I have selected "High performance" in Power Options. The CPU multiplier is usually around 8-9x. So the CPU is working only on 800-900MHz. As I said this is happening only when the power cable is unplugged and battery is below 50%. I've read that this could be caused by a Intel SpeedStep technology, which I should be able to switch off in BIOS. However there is no Intel SpeedStep technology option in the latest BIOS. Actually the BIOS is overall quite poor in number of functions. I would like to know if Lenovo is developing new versions of BIOS that will have the option to switch off the Intel SpeedStep technology. Thank you.

Recently I've been having problems with the battery discharging while plugged in while playing some games (Civilization V and Sniper Elite V2 are the ones I've noticed the most). In the case of Civilization V, it also causes the game to lag to the point of being unplayable. The battery notification when scrolled over says "plugged in, not charging" and does so indefinitely until the computer shuts off from lack of power. It also decreases the battery life to just about an hour and fifteen minutes when discharging like this. Any help would be appreciated with this, because it doesn't seem to happen with every single game I own. Sims 3, Saint's Row the Third, Skyrim, etc. do not suffer from this problem. I've already tried uninstalling the games with this problem and reinstalling them, but that doesn't seem to help. Thanks!

It installs perfectly fine but when I try and open it this is what the following error is: nD3D9Server: Could not create d3d device!DirectX Error is: D3DERR_INVALIDCALL I have tried to upgrade directX but that doesn?t seem to do anything. I have tried to load 3 different types of games so I don?t think it?s the games. As far as the complexity of the game, I wouldn?t think it would be an issue because the Asus 900 runs them beautifully with it. Is there something I am missing or have the computer configured wrong? Please if you could help me that would be great! Thanks for your time. look forward in hearing from you.  Kristen

Answer:Ideapad s10 problem loading simple games

What are the titles of some of the game that you tried to load in the S10 but were unable to run? Others may try to run them (if they have them) to see if they have the same problems.

Hi all, First of all, I absolutely love my ideapad y500. Ran it for over 2 years now. Received it as factory refurbished, from online seller. It used to ran all the programs, I am going to speak about, while plugged in. It seems that the increasing Windows updates seem to drain the potential of this battery/charger....I've even heard about motherboard issues. *EEK* Video rendering or editing will seem to stop my battery charging. The charger unplug, switch battery option, and then replug; will jog it to start charging. ONLY when I am not running such program will it jog. You can hear the laptop run pretty hard when it renders 40+ mins of video, and usually i will wait to get ~30%.. and exit program and let cool. Maybe mine is a fan issue.. i dunno. Computer games that requie just some use of the "DUAL nvidia GEOFORCE GT 600M" ..seem to just do the same thing as editing or rendering video.  All in all, I have heard much of this problem.. HEY! some people can't even get theres to charge at all. I can run my online searches and listen to music/// MOST of the time, key word most, I can stream video uninterupted. p.S. If any mod or tech support sees this and wants to help me up with maybe a couple solutions. MUCH appreciated friend.

Answer:Editing and Games; ideapad stops charging. "dual" ...

ALSO, my laptop will not charge in sleep mode/screen closed

Hi everyone, I just got my idea pad yesterday and started Counter-Strike:GO and got 250-280 fps and now i get 30 fps. I tried playing skyrim and its really not playable as it is very laggy even though i fittled with the nvidia settings and have beyond capable specs. Why is the gaming so laggy / almost terrible on this computer as it has a 755m nvidia card and i7 processor? What can i do to fix this. I downloaded all latest drivers.

I recently bought ideapad 320-15ikb. When I play a game like GTA5 on battery it lags in the middle of gameplay and after 30-45 sec again it runs smoothly. But when I play games with AC adapter plugged in, it runs smoothly. But simultaneously it does not charge the battery. eg. If I connect adaptor on battery 28%, it will stays on 28% untill I exit the game (But it shows, plugged in and charging, in battery notifications). As soon as I exit the game it starts charging. Is it normal?

Answer:ideapad 320-15ikb does not charge while playing games, is it normal?

So its normal for the laptop to be plugged in and not charging at times. Most laptops will allow for some battery discharging before starting to charge again. As for performance battery vs AC power. Your profiles for power based on battery or AC power can determine hardware settings. So its possible on battery the profile limits CPU speed or even changes graphics clock to save battery. Pretty much why gamers in general play games on AC and set profile for power to performance. This helps prevent underclocking CPU or GPU.

A few weeks ago I saw the Lenovo K430 on NewEgg while shopping for a new Desktop. I was amazed by the K430?s features and great looks. However, after doing some research I became very baffled about the Power Turbo Switch and the many horror stories about upgrading the graphics card. I called Lenovo Technical Support to talk about possibilities and get advice about the graphics card, a woman answered the phone and informed me she had no idea or information about graphics card; but she recommended I speak to Sales. I was transferred to sales and they too informed me that they knew nothing about the computer or graphics card. I decided to call B&H Photo, the name sounds deceiving but they really are the best with support. The Technical Support told me if I really wanted a great computer I should think about building my own. So today, I embarked on the journey to build my own computer and I want to say thank you to Lenovo. If it wasn?t for Lenovo's extremely bad Tech Support and Sales I would not have built my own computer. Lenovo you are so terrible and clueless, you have inspired me, you have driven me by showing me your lack of knowledge and sense of awareness, the idea that a company has a sales and tech department that knows absolutely nothing about their own product. Thank you Lenovo, you are simply the worse PC maker on the Planet! Thanks to you; today I have the most powerful computer I could ever imagined. The only Tech Support Leno provi... Read more

Every time i try to download ANYTHING i get the message: This app can't run on your pc.I tried downloading google chrome, illustrator, a couple of pc games etc...This ideapad had windows 8 pre-installed. So I contacted microsoft for support. they said that this is not a laptop but a tablet with an attached keyboard...???so according to them I can't download anything onto this.Can someone please clarify if I can download regular apps onto this or not?If not then I need to return this because without illustrator it is completely useless to me for my job.If I can download normal apps onto this then please someone tell me what is wrong....

Hi! I have an Ideapad Y700-15ISK running Windows 10, bought new last August. From day one, there's been a persistent problem during games: every few minutes, the system will hitch / freeze / stall for 1-2 seconds, and the audio will st-st-st-stutter during the stall. These are not ultra-modern games with demanding system requirements - I've noticed this problem while playing XCOM: Enemy Unknown, The Blackwell Chronicles, and most recently, Thimbleweed Park. It can happen apparently randomly, but I have noticed it happening fairly consistently when the game is loading an audio file that hasn't been played before in the current play session, so I'm wondering if this is a HDD access problem? The system came with an SSD and a HDD; Windows is installed on the former, while Steam and all my games are installed on the latter (1 TB WDC WD10SPCX-24HWST1). I have seen a few other threads where people seem to experience a similar problem, and have tried the following solutions to no avail:Updating all driversUpdating BIOS (current: CDCN37WW)Disabling Windows indexing on all drivesDisabling antivirus (AVG)Disabling wifiUninstalling Intel Rapid StorageEnsuring that the game is using the NVIDIA card and not integrated graphicsIn Windows audio settings, checking the Enhancements-->Disable all sound effects boxI was going to try a Lenovo Solution Centre hardware scan, but the program seems infinitely stuck on the "Loading" circle, so I guess I won't be doing that... An...

The Conexant Audio Driver, version 8.66.29.63, released 1/22/2017 can't be downloaded. Here is the link to the driver: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/100-series/110-15isk/80UD/downloads/DS... When I click download, it just keeps loading in my downloads and never truly downloads. All other drivers can be downloaded successfully. This audio driver just stays at 0 and never completes. I have tried downloading on multiple computers and different networks but this is still the case. Can Lenovo please correct this issue? The driver needs to be properly put up so people can actually download it from Lenovo's website or put up the driver in an alternate mirror link in case the Lenovo website has issues. Thank you.

I have and Ideapad that I received in January and the wifi download speed is less that 2Mbps while the upload speed is above 30Mbps.  I have updated all the drivers and ran the update scan tool to make sure all is up to date and according to the tool, everything is current.  All other machines in household ( including another Lenovo) have download speeds of above 30Mmbs.  I'm running the Windows 10 image that came with the machine; Windows 10 Home, version 1607, build 14393.693.  Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks
