Dec 26, 2012

I recently got the Z500, working under Windows 8.I got a question regarding the battery charge. I work on the laptop for extended periods of time with the power plugged in.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge 15 :: Webcam Enable / Disable Button

Oct 7, 2012

I have Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 15... Thinkpad edge 15 has all kinds of buttons on the keyboard. Like volume buttons, speaker mute button etc.

The problem is that there is a button for Webcam to disable/enable it (marked with yellow box on the pic), but its not working anymore. Everytime i push it, nothing happens(instead it shows me mouse cursor with that ring) . it should show me that camera is on/off. For example it shows me when my mic is off.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z500 Fan Won't Start Until Max Temp

Nov 19, 2014

I have z500. I start playing some medium grapic games. After a 1 hour gameplay my graphics start to glitch so i checked my cpu and gpu temp. I saw that CPU temp has reached 99 Celcius but still the fans were dead. 
Few minutes later, after what ever reason, fans start to spin and now its cooled downed to 60 C. and keeps spinning in low speed still.
Since i can see the temp, i assume there is no problem in thermometer so i assume its kind of a software deficiency. I am not using any overcload or cooling app, my power settings are set to high performance.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: USB Boot For IdeaPad Z500

Feb 11, 2014

I bought the Lenovo Ideapad Z500 and I'm trying to boot from a USB drive in order to install Windows on it. When I start the boot menu I only see the hard-drive, the DVD and the network. I tried to set both UEFI mode and Legacy mode in BIOS but the USB stick does not appear in the menu when I boot. I put the image of windows with Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool which formats the stick in NTFS mode.

I have the latest BIOS v1.21 and I tried with 2 different USB sticks: one 16GB USB 2.0 Corsair and with a 32GB USB 3.0 ADATA both on USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports on the notebook. I really haven't seen anything like this in my entire career. 
I even downloaded the file efiootBOOTX64.efi and replaced the one that Windows come with on the specified folder on the USB stick ....

Why is so difficult to choose the USB boot drive on the newer notebooks? How can I boot from USB?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Z500 Brightness Can't Increase

Nov 24, 2012

I have a new z500 that I've downgraded to Windows 7 64bit. For the most part I have everything working. I accidentally hit the brightness + (yes, +) and it instantly dimmed the screen to where it is barely viewable. It seems that hitting that one key decreased the brightness to the minimum amount. I've rebooted, looked for a setting in the BIOS, hit the Brightness +/- and can't increase the brightness. It is interesting because the other hot keys work correctly. I've even upped the brightness in the Control Panel, but nothing seems to work. The screen is extremely dim whenever the machine is powered on (including the BIOS), not just in Windows. I tried a lot of intel chipset drivers, the available Intel HD 4000 drivers in Win8 and win7 too, but nothing working. How to up the brightness?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Reversing Function Of All F Keys - Z500

Oct 10, 2012

The default behavior of F1 through F12 keys on the z500 are set to perform laptop functions like mute, turn sound or brightness up and down and so on.
Is there a way to reverse the way F1, F2.. F12 keys work, so they work like on any other regular keyboard.
I use the basic functionality of the F-keys all the time, when renaming files, searching and so on, and I would like to be able to use them without having to press "fn" every time.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Z500 - WiFi Connectivity (Limited Connection / Yellow Triangle)

Mar 21, 2013

I have an ideapad z500 which I'm happy for, but it annoys me that when 'm at my college I can't properly connect to the wi-fi the school has. When I connect, I'm on for usually about half an hour, but then I get the "limited connection" yellow triangle and I have to deactivate the networkcard before I can get a normal connection.

Other times I simply just can't connect, it tries but it fails. When it does, I have to reboot the computer before it succeeds, and that's no good when you are working on a project. At home i have no problems, it works nicely.

Also, how to enable the WiDi on the z500.

My PC is running Win 8 with the Intel Centrino n2230, Intel 3rd. gen i7 (3632qm)
