Flex 3-1120 Windows 10 OKR

Question: Flex 3-1120 Windows 10 OKR

Hi, I just purchased a Flex 3-1120 with Windows 10 preinstalled via Lenovo.com. When I try to use the Lenovo OKR to restore the system back to the orginal state, it takes to the Windows 10 recovery options. Is this correct? Will the Windows 10 receovery option restore everything including the Lenovo preinstalled programs/apps? Thanks for your assistance!

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.)

I just got this Lenovo and when setting up, I am pretty sure I downloaded and installed the free Windows 10 upgrade.  In my program information, I only see Windows 8.1 as being installed.  When I go to microsoft browser, it says Windows 10.  How do I find product key for Windows 10.  I tried following directions on lenovo help site but it did not help. thanks for any advice.

I just received my new Lenovo Flex 3-1120 ( Model: 80LX001KUS).  As delivered, it has 32G of eMMC.  I am desirous of upgrading the machine with a Hard Drive (which I have purchased).    I have discovered that due to the fact that the stock configuration does not have a hard drive that there are two parts that are needed to house and connect the hard drive.  From Lenovo?s parts list those parts are:5B40J08368 HDD Bracket  and5C10J08424 HDD Cable As much as I have tried I cannot find any option for purchasing these parts on-line. Please advise of options to acquire.

I have a new Flex 3 it was working fine yesterday, I shut it down last night and plugged it in, it seems to have a good charge (and I have tried it plugged in as well), but this morning it will not boot up.  I hope I don't have to take this back to BB today, any ideas?

Answer:Flex 3 -1120 wont power on

I had the same issue. it appears that a driver was installed but the system has stalled. It actually happened twice. I sent it in and they "refreshed" it and it did it again. I let the power die on it and it started back up. I don't know of a way to manually shut it down. The old way was take the battery out but its not the case here. The battery is sealed in side and I didn't want to give them a reason to void the warranty. You can charge stuff with the usb while it's unplugged, try draining the battery that way with a phone or tablet.

I have a Lenovo Flex 3 1120. When I bought it, I went for the hard drive option that had the cheapest price since all the other options were HDD of various sizes and I knew I was going to upgrade to SSD anyway. The flex 3 I have though, does not have a HDD and uses an eMMC embedded storage. When I went to install the SSD, there is an empty space for where the hard drive would sit and there is no SATA connection. There is a socket in the board that is labeled "SATA conn1" but no cable.
 
I called support and was told it is possible to use the SSD and boot from it. The cable and caddy can be purchased but she said Lenovo will not supply the part. I found the part number I think,  1109-01051, but apparently no one else sells it either. There was one on ebay, but it's gone. anyone know where I can find one?

Answer:Flex 3 1120.- No SATA connection!

update: the item number is actually 5C10J08424. I still had a hard time a seller with it in stock. One website wanted about $70 for it not including shipping. I finally found/bought one on encompassparts.com for about $20 including shipping. I'll update once I get to try it out.

Hello, My windows updated a few weeks ago and after the update I had a few issues with my touch pad and sound. I was able to roll back my touch pad driver and fix the problem but there has been no update to Realtek High Definition Audio Driver for several years so there was nothing to roll back to. The issue I have been having that my sound has been contstently going up leaving the sound bar on the screen (A picture is attach below if it helps). This has become very annoying since I  have not found a way to get rid of this. So far I have tried updating and deleting then reinstalling the driver but the sound bar remains. Therefore, is there any way I can fix this? Any help will be much appreciated.Thanks,SoundMax

My battery was charging fine and then I clicked on the battery icon today to open up and the menu and it went from telling me the battery was plugged in and charging to plugged in and not charging. It was like clicking the icon turned off the charging capability. This is a brand new computer, I've only had it for a couple weeks. The battery and adapater are both okay according to OneKey Optimizer, so I can't figure out why it's not charging. Currently running Windows 10 if that helps.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 3-1120 Plugged in, not charging

Does your battery stay at about 60%?  If so, then there actually is no problem.  Lenovo Flex 3 has a feature called "Conservation Mode," which keeps the battery from charging all the way.  This will supposedly increase the lifespan of the battery, which is a good thing, since the battery isn't meant to be replaced.  If you want to charge the battery normally, just click on the battery guage on the taskbar.  You'll find the setting there.

It is best to uninstall the old drivers and run the exe file in compatibility mode for the new driver.

Answer:Canon LBP-1120 and Vista

Have you made the printer the default printer for Vista , I think that when you have word loaded the printing properties default to Microsoft Office Document Image Writer and not your installed printer . Are you using driver 7.1.3.3 for the scanner , if not click here for that version , this is from the Australian Canon site , this is where I got the drivers for my N670u which works well under Vista .

If removable, I would not wait till the warranty period is over. Do it now.  if the computer needs repair, just swap back the old ram. Ram upgrade is the easiest thing to do on a computer and there are thousands of How-to videos on it.

Hi there @JPMESQ, I hope you find your Support Forum experience a positive one! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you have a question about USB compatibility. I am happy to help with this. According to the USB 3.1 specification, which is referenced here: USB - wikipedia.org, "The USB 3.1 standard is backward compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0." So in terms of the connection it should work, but the performance will be limited by the slower standard. It is possible that some devices using USB 3.1, may not themselves not be backwards compatible, but that would be a case by case issue. I hope that addresses your question, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

I just replaced the hard drive and both cooling fans. When the system is powered up the screen flashes between blue to black to gray to (red-green -blue-black horizontal lines) and repeats. I reset the bios still no change. I re checked all connections the board is getting power, i can push the eject on the DVD drive and it works, all fans come on just un able to get to bios screen. I tried powering up and hitting f10  repeatedly no change. There are no beeps what so ever on power up and while the system is on. The reason for the hard drive replacement was it just stopped working, but at the time I was able to at least get to the HP screen and troubleshoot the problem. I tried un plugging power to system holding the power button for five seconds, plugging back in still same problem. I can hit the print button on the keyboard and hear the computer beep, that is the only beeps i can get.

Hi,

I have been searching several websites, downloaded a lot of junk and tested a great many so called solutions. In spite of all efforts I could not find a working solution for the LBP-1120 on W7 x64.
Although I guess most LBP-1120 users got tired of searching and simlpy threw away their printer, I refuse to do that. So I'm running it on Virtual PC under W7 x64, a complicated afair if one has to print just a few copies. The latest thread on this (and most other forums) is of 2009, so did anything happen after that date?
Does any one know of a working (tested!)driver solution for this printer? It's a shame that Cannon did not provide a decent driver. The vista / W7 x64 does not run on x64 platforms in any mode! Even for old Epsons I was able to find W7 x64 drivers.

Kind regards,

Answer:Driver for Canon LBP-1120 Lasershot on W7 x64

First, make sure you uninstall any previously installed printer drivers in add/ remove programs which may conflict with the installation.

Check Device Manager for driver issues.

Select the newest version from the list. Then click download.

Do not turn on the printer until the software is installed.

Hi guys I just purchased a flex 3 11 for my mom 32gb HD, 2gb ram  I thought it would be compatible with the Get Windows 10 App but it appears that's not the case. Windows 8 is pretty confusing for her. Is there anyway I can install windows 10?  Looking at the windows 10 min required specs I think what's tripping it up is it requires 20GB free for 64 bit OS, and she only has 12gb free with all the space the system files hog up. (i've deleted all unnecessary programs and bloat)  If i purchase a 32gb microsd or USB stick, would that give me the ability to extend the hard drive storage and install windows 10?  

Answer:Flex 3 11 Windows 10

Dear soam,
 
Welcome in lenovo community
 
you can extend the HDD space by using microsd, to be able to install windows 10,
 
but pay attention that the actual windows partition space will not be enough to make the windows run with the full performance.

Hi! I'm new here so be patients please!I have recently bought a Lenovo Flex 2-15 and it came with pre-installed Windows 8.1. My supplier was Newegg.com.Everything was great and beautiful, except I wasn't able to close the optical drive door. After a few more tries and tries, it, finely, closed. Now it's working just fine every time I use it, exactly as intended.For a few day ago, I experienced some bad activity due to installing a plug-in which suppose to help me watch some online TV stations. It seems I got a virus or a maleware. Even with my updated antivirus, the system runs pretty "cloggy" and browsers (no matter which of the: IE11, Chrome, Firefox, Safary - all being up to date) are displaying a lot of ads, most of  them are covering the page but you cannot see them. When ready to click on a link or just click on a free area with no link, they start to open in separate pages and make your work worst.OK! This is not something too new or strange to me.

Hi, I wonder how can I get the Windows Product or Activation Key for the Lenovo Flex 2 15D? I tried to install Linux on a new Flex 2 15D and along the way screwed the existing disk partitions and so I cannot recover Windows via the restore partition.  I tried to follow the previous forum and downloaded a Windows 8.1 DVD  from http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/create-reset-refresh-media adn try to use it to re-install Windows 8.1 and supposely it should be able to recognize the "embeded" keys in the BIOS but it still comes up with a screen asking the product key. any  way to get the product key or to restore the Windows 8.1 on this machine?

Answer:Flex 10 carnt get onto windows

Hello faylou, If your referring to Windows built in reset and repair option. Then it would seem your having issues with your OS files and would most likely need to contact support for recovery media to possibly reinstall your OS again. Now about not being able to get into your laptop now, is that Windows or before then? Does the startup screen load? Does Windows try to load? Also is there any error messages or codes displayed?

Hello, Having looked on the support pages i note that all teh Flex 10 drivers are for Win 8 / 8.1. I plan to install a SSD into the machine and install a genuine version of Windows 7 home premium. I have created the iso and bootable USB with windows 7 on (I have even formated the stick to FAT32 as I understand this is a requirement). Before I install Win 7 I want to make sure that everything will work namely the Touchscreen, trackpad etc etc ....  The question: Where can I get all the correct drivers for Windows 7? Will the OS detect and install them, or is there a resource site where I can download them?  Any other assistance would be helpful. Paul

Answer:Installing Windows 7 on Flex 10

hi pjeff18,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Nomally, the Touchscreen drivers for laptops are natively installed by the OS (no special drivers are required).
 
As for the touchpad and other drivers, you might be able to get away by installing the Win7 drivers from the Flex 13/14 series (considering the they have the same hardware ID as the Flex 10) but this is remain to be tested.
 
As for installing Win7, if Secure Boot can be disabled in the BIOS (which allows you to install any other OS besides the preloaded Win8.1) then this is feasible.. If you don't have this setting though, you might get a BSOD error as discussed in this thread.

Hello there!I should have visited the productwebsite before spontaneously buying a laptop that seemed ok at first glance.Beside the little drawbacks, like that the laptop comes with Windows 8.1 and the F-keys are only accessible via the additional fn key, it looked like a nice product.The first thing I noticed back at home is, that there is no CD or any other physical backup of the OS/Setup.Okay, I can live with that. I went back to the store and bought an external cd-drive to get rid of Windows 8.1After installing Windows 7 I looked for drivers.They are only for windows 8!http://mobilesupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/flex-series/ideapad-flex-14d-not...Well, I tried to install the win8 drivers, most of them work, except for the most important one: the Graphics driver.Plus: I can't change my brightness anymore.Is there anything I can do? I really want to use Win7 and not Win8. Any help would be appreciated. Since the laptop came with no serial key, CD or anything else, I can't go back to win8 anyway. I wiped the harddrive before installing win7. TL;DRDowngraded from Win8 to Win7 on my flex14D ideapad.Are there any working drivers for it? Especially the VGA driver gives me this message: your system does not fulfill the prerequisites for the chosen components Thank you!

Answer:Install Windows 7 on Flex 2

Hello and welcome,
 
The "a required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing" message usually has nothing to do with a missing driver.
 
Are you using a Microsoft DVD or downloaded ISO or ???  The most frequent cause of that error is a bad download, a bad burn, bad file transfer (in the case of a flash drive) bad drive (sounds like that's ruled out) or maybe the "wrong" USB socket.
 
Have you tried other USB ports?  Sorry I don't have something specific.  All I can tell you is that error message is probably a red herring.

Hey, Ok, like so many others, I have a Flex 3 that has developed the blinking power LED of death it seems. I can't find a solution here that will help me, however, as I installed Linux on the machine to replace Windows. Therefore I can rule out a Windows or device driver issue. A few weeks ago, I stepped away, closing the lid. Since then, it will not resume. The power LED on the power button blinks enternally. If I plug in the AC adapter, both will blink in alternation, both white. - I have drained the battery, leaving it unplugged for weeks. When I plug it in again, the above symptoms persist.- On the advice of other threads in this forum, I have disconnected both the main and CMOS batteries. Still the same result. Drained the battery, disconnected, held in the power button: no change. Power and charge lights blink. I've owned this device for just under a year, and am a bit disappointed, as I was using the device on a long commute every day. I see a lot of references on this forum alone to it being referred to as a $300 paperweight. Hopefully this is an easy fix that I'm missing.  Any suggestions?

Answer:No wifi connections with Windows 8.1 on Lenovo Flex 2-14

Look if the wireless adapter is disabled in your BIOS? If not, in Device Manger disable it and later enable it again.

Windows 8 was upgraded to Windows 8.1 Upgrade on a Flex 15. The first time I tried to do the upgrade, I had enough problems that I re-installed from a Windows 8.1 image.  All went well and all the drivers work except the Ethernet.  The upgrade was relatively painless if you ignore the necessary reboots. The latest Ethernet driver was downloaded from Lenovo and it was upgraded through Device Manager to version 8.26.218.201 In spite of Device Manager saying the Realtek ethernet adapter is working, no network is recognized by Networks and Sharing Centrewith when an ethernent cable is plugged into the Flex 15 i.  The cable is good and has been checked by way of another computer.  I have previously used the hard-wired ethernet once and it worked but I do not remember where the laptop stood during the pgrade path. This may be a hardware problem which will require mailing the laptop for the repair, or it may be a software / dirver issue. If anyone has a suggestion, please let me know.  The only other thing I can do is reistall from scratch to confirm it is a hardware problem. With thanks in advance.

Answer:Windows 8.1 Upgrade problem with Ethernet on a Flex 15

OK  So I'm not the smartest cookie in the cookie jar.The Ethernet worked all along, but I inserted the ethernet cable UP-SIDE-DOWN.  The Flex 15 has a 1/2 size ethernet female plug and it has a small cover which flips down.  This is to allow the adapter in a thin shellThe male end can be plugged in upsidedown unlike a normal-sized ethernet female.  It goes in, but does not click.  So a word to the wise ... the plastic prong of the male end is on the bottom.

About three days ago my Flex 3 1480 stopped charging its battery. This message appears above the taskbar battery icon:  ?0% available - plugged in, charging."  The computer now only comes on with the ac power adapter plugged in. I have used another adapter (identical specs) with the same negative result on my computer.  My adapter works fine on the other computer. These are fixes recommended at various internet sites that I have tried without success: System restore to a point several days before problem appeared.Uninstalled both battery drivers in Device Manager and restart reinstalled - three times. The battery is internal so I would like to fix without having to remove the battery if possible. Resetting the battery and resetting the bios are on-line recommendations that I don?t really know how to do safely. In searching the Lenovo site, I have been unable to find this problem addressed. The Lenovo Vantage Hardware Scan shows all in good order ? the battery itself is rated Good. The Flex 3 is 2 years old and is now out of warranty. Any help to correct and get the battery charging would be appreciated. Thank you, GB
