So in the past couple of days I've noticed that my Y570 isn't charging properly.
With normal use such as internet browsing, facebook, e-mail, etc. there is no problem. However I often use my computer to game stuff like Don't Starve, League, CSGO, etc. So I'm thinking the problems is something to due with heat.
The fan on my IdeaPad Y570 has suddenly stopped switching on. It does not spin regardless of temperature, and as a result, temperatures reach 90C+. The dedusting mode works fine, the fan spins up as expected for the cycle, and sounds normal. So the fan is not physically broken or clogged. I have also installed 3rd party software CPUID HWMonitor to check if the temperature sensors are functioning, and they all show temperatures at expected levels, and more than high enough to warrant the fan coming on.
I don't think I have installed any new software that might interfere with it. I have tried re-installing the Lenovo Energy Management software. I have also tried starting the laptop in safe mode, to no effect.
I have a problem with my laptop Lenovo y570. I had a defective disk. After repair and return from warranty service, the Optimus switch on the right side of the notebook blocked or broken. I don't know. The computer used both graphics cards, but after installing the latest drivers works only integrated graphics. It seems that the Optimus switched, but I do not know how to switch it back when it is blocked. I tried install older driver and driver from recoverydisk for both GPU
I have a Y570 with Ssd and Hdd, I installed windows 7 to hdd then all drivers. My SSD was left unaloccated, when I installed rapid drive it said failed!!! And when I restarted my conputer i got the bod. I made a full backup but it says it requires a disk, I don't have one. The pdf file for rapid drive doesn't work, is their a new one?
I rencently reinstalled windows 7 on my W520 and it refuses to activate my nvidia quadro 2000m (Code 43).
For a while the fan is overheating and the right left hinge become very hot. I think the graphic card is dead but I want to know why and if I can stop the overheating. Is the the graphic card soldered onto the motherboard of the W520?
after few seconds of heavy CPU usage on my x230 termal sensors show temperature slightly above 100 degrees celsius. I think it's way to high and probably should call the service to replace the fan, clean the heatsink etc, but wanted to make sure.For comparison, my previous machine (x201) did not ever go above 85 degrees during similar tasks.
after installing every software i will need on my notebook, i closed it (sleeping) and put it in my backpack. i only needed it again after 2 days. when i touched the bag it was already hot in the outside, i opened it, and my Lenovo was burning... i turned my computer on, the battery went down to 13% from 100% (2 days ago), as it was sleeping, i would have suggested it uses roughly 10-15% in 2 days.
my questions are: 1. is the heating thing normal while sleeping? what could have caused the problem? 2. is it possible that some parts of the computer got damaged in such a hot atmosphere? (note that i kept it in a closed bag)
possible solution to question 1: i ran a command prompts, typed in the code that tells me what is allowed to wake my computer. noticed the external Logitec mouse and that Intel giganet networks were allowed, so i disabled both. it was probably the mouse as it was in the same bag, i guess it was moving in the bag and waking the computer?
I have a Lenovo Yoga 13 with an Intel i5-3337U. I noticed that it seems to be getting a lot hotter recently (touch wise), and so I installed coretemp on the ultrabook to find out what the idle temperature is.It seems to average out 47C idle.I was wondering if this is the average idle temp for this model process/laptop.
I have an esata port, and was going to get an internal hard drive with a case that converts the drive into an esata drive. I'm wanting to get a 3 TB drive, and in order to get it to read all 3 TB, I'll need to reformat the drive in GPT format (not MBR). Right?
I see a thing online that says the SATA controller has to be compatible with GPT in order to do this. I want to use it as an external drive, without any operating system on it, so I'm not worried about getting Windows to run on it; just if I can format it as GPT and get the full 3 TB out of the drive. I don't want to buy the 3 TB drive and then find out I can only get 2 because of the motherboard. If that site was correct, then I need to know if the sata controller is compatible with GPT.
I see this listed under the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers list: Intel Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller.
I tried to call Lenovo support but could only tell me that she thinks I have SATA 0 or 1, but nothing about the controller in this model or GTP compatibility.
i just got my new z50 and it will not see any disc i put in it. I tried playing it through the lenovo powerdvd10 and it says no disc in drive E. tried to go straight to drive E and it will not see any disc. it is spinning and it will open it when i try a second time to get it to play .
i am trying to watch and allso copy dvd and convert to mp4 to download to a playbook for my kids. just for the record
I have searched the issue and all I can see is I have to flash the bios. I am not comfortable doing that because I have done this before on my Alienware and it took me three days to restart the computer. Everything was messed up.
All I want to be able to do is charge USB devices when the computer is in sleep mode. I have set Windows 8 power mode up, but it appears the BIOS is still preventing this from happening. So I need to access the BIOS.When the computer restarts no message appears to say *'hit F2 to enter BIOS'.So I have tried, Fn + F2, Fn + F1, F1, F2 and none enter the bios on start up. How do I enter bios on this Z50?
I've been playing Battlefield 3 for some time on Auto settings (most of them are Ultra) and my FPS were always in the range 65-85. Yesterday morning everything was fine, however at night when I opened the game again I had 10-15 FPS. I haven't changed anything in my laptop settings so I don't know why this is happening.
P.S: I only have 1 GPU (not the SLI version) so I know it's not a loss of power. But my battery settings are set to "Optimized battery health". Does it affect performance ?
I buy the z40-75 yesterday (Jan 7th, 2015) and install Windows 7 64bit ultimate, and I download the driver for Touchpad. When I install Synaptics, a message "Synaptic device not found" or something like that", so I try install ELAN driver, but the message "This driver version doesn't suit this touchpad". This touchpad really annoying, especially when typing and I even can't disable the touchpad.
Having a hard time figuring the partitions. first is a windows recovery drive. Second the windows boot partition. Third i'm guessing a lenovo recovery drive. Other than C: Windows, The other i'm not sure.
Other info: Made usb factory restore and made one restore point. When i made the usb factory restore when it finished it asked if i wanted to erase the recovery and i selected yes. Was thinking maybe G: was created when i made the restore.
I just got couple of days old Lenovo IdeaPad z50-75, running on AMD FX-7500.First I jsut now noticed that my CPU runs at 1.07 Ghz, before it was always over 2 Ghz or so which was good ... but maybe I touched something some where in powr settings or something and now it stays on 1.07 even when cpu pretty much utilised. I have set power plan to high performance and also Energy manager is set to high performance mode and Conservation mode is on. why it doesn't clock itself up ? I feel that it is slower than before.
I've got Y510p with USB 2.0 not working. By the time it malfunctioned it was under warranty and I sent it in the service center. They have claimed that it has been repaired (USB board has been changed) but it is still not working and my warranty ended like 3 days after I sent it back. Since then (1 month ago) I am returning it to the service center for 3 times (last one was today) and I feel they can't fix it. URL....
I bought this laptop G500 Lenovo 4 months ago and I am satisfy but unfortunately I found out still it have defects my problem is my cd/dvd rom I got un annoying noisy sound inside when I put a cd on it I guess it will give me problem sooner and now it happens it won't read anymore. I try to search for answers maybe it only a software issue but doesn't work any trial. Uninstall driver and bring it back don't work still there is the annoying sound and not reading. I guess a mechanical failure in its cd alignment that it is spinning but the head is keep on adjusting which creating the noisy sound means it was not align to read the CD.
I've just bought this laptop, and it came with windows 8 preinstalled, and I'm trying to install Windows 7 on it.
I have a bootable usb, which I've used many times to install Windows on my other laptops, but the B590 just wont do it. I feel like I've tried everything. I changed the boot priority order in BIOS with USB HDD as number 1 but it still just boots into windows 8.
I've tried removing everything but USB devices from the boot order, and now I get this boot menu: [URL]
Which is exactly what I want to boot from, but when I press enter to boot from the USB device, nothing happens.
The USB device IS bootable with a primary partition. I've used these steps to make it bootable in DISKPART [URL]
After having no luck on the B590, I tried booting on the USB on a different computer, and it works perfectly well. Starts installing windows 7. So it seems like the problem is not with my usb device.
I even tried restoring the USB drive and using Lenovo Bootable Generator application to make the usb bootable, with the same result.
