Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S1 Series :: Power Management Driver Disabled

Jul 19, 2014

I have since a few days my Power managment driver which doesn't recognize the battery any more.I have checked in the Windows Device Manager, which says: "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)".Can it be related to a very recent Windows update I have made? (I'm on Windows 8.1)

Lenovo X230 Series ThinkPad :: Battery Drains Quickly In Sleep Mode / Power Management Center Won't Run

Apr 15, 2009

I have my lenovo x230 laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. When I close the lid the "sleep" icon on the back of the screen lights up. But the batter will not last through the night on sleep mode. Within five hours or so, the battery is completely drained and I have to plug in and boot up the system. I've never seen such poor batter performance during sleep mode on any other laptop I've ever owned. 
 
Another thread in this forum blames the USB port that allows you to charge mobile phones/etc. during low-power states and recommends disabling the "always power on" option fo this USB port in the Bios settings. At least my laptop still will not make it through the night in sleep mode. 
 
At this point, it seems my ownly option is to use sleep mode only when the laptop is plugged in and hibernation mode when on batter power, which is disappointing. I've never had to worry about this in the past with other laptops. Perhaps/probably related is the fact that the lenovo ThinkVantage Power Manager (v. 7.16) hangs at the splash screen when I try to open it, so I've been trying to manage the power through the windows control panel power settings.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Power Button Is Not Responding In Sleep Mode

Jan 27, 2014

sometime in sleep mode my Yoga fall into irresponsive mode without any possibility to do anything. The power button is simply not working - pushing it for more than 30 second not change anything... Yoga red light is slowly blinking, the fn key is lighting, the fan is working, processor is heating and this follows to full drain battery.

Is any possibility to reset or reboot this "thermal brick" Yoga mode? Some computers and tablet have the hard reset button to work with such a situation - have Thinkpad Yoga similar solution (i.e. button combination invoking reset)?

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: S1 - Wireless Lan Driver Fails / Trackpad Acts As Simple Mouse

Jun 23, 2014

I got my self a Thinkpad S1 Yoga (20CD) and I have two issues;

1) The wireless lan driver fails and startup. (Dual Band AC 7260)
2) The trackpad acts as a simple mouse. (ultranav driver is installed)
 
I'm running Windows 8.1pro (x64). All drivers are updated and the BIOS is updated.
 
The wireless lan driver starts normally when I disable USB3 support in the bios or disable the "Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 0100 (Microsoft)" in de device manager.

When I disable and enable the wireless lan driver again the driver works normally.
 
The trackpad does not support actions like scrolling.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: ThinkPad E520 - Battery Icon For Power Management Did Not Work

Feb 27, 2013

I bought 2 of these in oct 2011 for my twins going to college. My daughters has had no problems. The other one died in may 2012 and was repaired under warranty. It died again in November 2012. I was able to get it running by removing the battery and disconnecting the cmos battery and letting it sit for a while. 

It happened again, and this time I can't revive it. I want to add that I think there was something wrong when we got it back from repair. The battery icon for the Lenovo power management did not work, but the windows one did. In hindsight I think this had something to do with nvram problem I have since heard so much about.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z710 Power Management Can't Install Windows 7 64bit

Apr 24, 2014

Z710 power management can't install, win7 64 because "Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software"
 
I pushed the "Install this driver software anyway" but the hardware still wasn't recognized after installation/reboot.
 
So I installed instead of that the Lenovo Energy Management Software Ver 7.0.3.4 ...

This is working, but I dont know if it is a problem for my system becouse of incompatibility with the battery of Z710.

Any digitally signed driver for my Z710 or I can use the version 7.0.3.4 without problem?

Lenovo B / G Series :: No Device In Color Management After Reinstall Intel HD 400 Driver

Aug 28, 2014

Recently I have had problem doing external monitor calibration under Win 8.1 64-bit.  It turned out that that monitor did not show up in the "Device" pull-down menu in the Color Management.  So I update the Intel HD graphic 400 driver.  It didn't work.  Then I uninstall the video driver and re-install from the scratch.  Now I have found even the built-in monitor did not show up at the Color Management.  Only printers show up in the Device pull-down menu.
 
I wonder if there other software or driver that I need to install?  Or I have mseed up so One-touch Restore will be required?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Windows Search On W520 - Keeps Getting Disabled

Nov 5, 2010

I've had this continual problem with my W520, which I can't seem to solve.  Windows Search is disabled, I go into services, set it back to Automatic and start the service.  It works fine all day long, no problems.  When I shut off the machine, sometimes, not everytime, when I bring the machine back up, the service is now disabled and I go through this entire process again.  What is strange is that at other times, after reboot, it is still enabled.  
 
I've checked the event log, there is only an entry that indicates that the service was disabled, but there is no information in there which indicates the process that did the disable. 
 
Here are the specs of the machine which might be relevant: 
 
Hardware
W520
x64 Win7 Ultimate - standard Windows build
2820QM processor
16 GB RAM
1x500 GB drive in the HDD bay
1x750 GB drive in the Ultrabay (with the annoying gap)
 
Software
MS Office 2010
Visual Studio 2008/2010
SQL Server 2005/2008
ESET NOD32
Quickbooks
Chrome
othr related items for development.....
 
On the software side, I tend to keep it light, thus making it quicker and less likely to have conflicts.  
 
Is there any tool out there which can tell me what process keeps disabling this service?  It is very frustrating, having to go through this all the time.  I know there will be some that say it slows down your machine, that may be their experience, but it is not mine and that penalty is outweighed by the convenience of being able to quickly search a 6GB email account.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Shift Key Not Working On It

Jan 26, 2015

I've got the 12inch thinkpad yoga.  The left shift key works intermittently.  This started happening to me a couple of weeks ago (I've had the computer since December and haven't noticed a problem.  I sent it in twice and supposedly, they replaced the whole machine this last time, but I'm still having the problem.  Could this be a fault in this model in general?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Use 65W Yoga Charger For X1 Carbon?

Feb 11, 2015

[URL]
 
The label on the charger says:
 
MODEL 45N0261
FRU P/N 45N0262
Lenovo P/N 36200253  
 
It was advertised as X1 charger, but when it arrived I thought it's too small in size, so I googled it. Having done that, I've realised it's actually being sold by Lenovo as a charger for Yoga. 
 
Am I safe to use this charger for my ThinkPad X1 Carbon (3460-CLG)?

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: How To Boot From SD Card

Jan 27, 2014

is there any possibility to make boot from SD Card on Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga?
 
I have live linux image, but there are no optical drive on system, so I would be glad to use the SD Card slot. When start with boot selection, there no SD Card slot listed even if I have the bootable SD Card inserted into. On other system the same card booting properly.
 
Are there some bois settings to allow booting from SD Card slot, so it will be included in boot device list? The same system boot from USB, but USB consume one USB port, so the SD Card is more preferable option.

Is there a possibility of installing a 3G/LTE module on the Thinkpad Yoga? To my understanding there is an m.sata slot on the Yoga that allows for us to put extra SSD hard drives on it. Is it possible to replace it?
 
If not, are there other methods other than using usb-dongles or hotspots?

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: S230u Started To Freeze A Lot

Jan 13, 2014

two days ago my Lenovo Twist S230u laptop started to freeze a lot, especially when I tried to multitask (like switching to a separate window). It probably took ten minutes each time for the computer to unfreeze and continue.
 
the in-built 'Lenovo Solutin Center' software ran an automatic diagnostic test, and said that the laptop failed the SMART short-self test (unfortunately I forgot to copy the error code). I didn't think much of it at the time since my laptop is only 5-months old. Just in case, I performed a disk cleanup, disk defrag and made sure everything is up to date. This was when the laptop began to freeze quite a lot. In desperation (and stupidity), I typed the chkdsk /r command in command prompt and asked it to run at reboot. Apparently the SMART short self test is a physical problem rather than a software problem, so obviously chkdsk won't work.
 
chkdsk ran for about two days now which is clearly too long for a 500gb HDD laptop. I've only used about half of this space too. I forced a shut down and now I cannot access Windows 8.1 through the boot menu (it just hangs on a black screen). Loading a rebootable USB recovery drive is not doing anything too.
 
I previously sought support on the Microsoft Answers website. They said that my 'hard disk is failing' and I will need to have my HDD replaced.I just want a second opinion here. Is warranty valid under this circumstance? From what I remember, 'Lenovo Solution Center' said I still had a few hundred days of warranty left on the machine.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Disabling Secure Boot On S1

Nov 16, 2014

I am trying to disable UEFI Secure Boot on my Thinkpad Yoga S1 but it keeps getting re-enabled after a reboot. If I set secure boot to disabled I can boot into the non secure OSes installed on the machine imediately afterwards but if the machine is restarted the Secure Boot seting in the BIOS is re-enabled.  It's important for me to have secure boot disabled as I use OSes without secure boot.

I try to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS on the following screen :

Link to image 1

But if I re-enter the BIOS either after booting into an OS or simply re-entering the BIOS, Secure Boot is back on:

Link to image 2

I have also tried to disable "OS Optimzed Defaults" but it also returns to enabled after a restart.

Link to image 3

Some of the other BIOS settings save correctly so I can't figure out why the secure boot settings don't. The BIOS version I have is the latest (1.18).

It's inconvenient to manually disable secure boot each time I want to use the laptop. The two operating systems (Ubuntu and Android x86) do work reasonably well once booted.
