Lenovo U410 U/S Series :: Fails To Boot?

Oct 20, 2014

I got this idela pad U410 about a year ago and it was functioning nornally. A few months ago it started to boot up very slowly when power cycles. A hibernate was quick. Now it never comes up and keeps waiting at the Lenovo screen, no windows. I have seen posts that say it is a manufacturing defect. This one is out of warranty, so what is the solution. Do we have a solution at all? Why does Lenovo market such a bad product. BTW, the back cover is so flimsy that it gave up and had to replace it. Overall a case of bad engineering i guess.

Lenovo U/S Series :: U410 Stuck In Boot Loop

Sep 30, 2013

Recently I purchased a u410 and it has been running great for a few weeks but this morning instead of waking up from hibernation like normal it seems to be stuck in a loop of displaying the lenovo logo then a blank screen with a few seconds on each. This has been running continuously for hours while I try to run down battery in an attempt to reset. I have no bios access during the loop and it will not boot to any usb media. I am now wondering what I should do since it already has data migrated from my old machine and don't exactly want to start over. Is there anything that can be done other than returning it or sending it to lenovo support?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510p Freezes While Playing A Game - Boot Fails On Restart

Feb 4, 2014

I've had my Y510p (8GB RAM, DVD Ultrabay option) for a bit more than four months now and it's been working perfectly for most of the time- however, two days ago, while playing a game the computer or the game itself froze. After trying to bring the Task Manager up/kill the game, I decided to restart it- I turned it off, but once it came back on, it had decided to start "Preparing Automatic Repair". After several times unsuccessfully "repairing" (after which again "preparing") it (it had given me an error, something with Srttrail.txt file), I decided to look up and search the Internet for people with a similar/the same problem- none of the methods worked. So, I decided it could've been from software I've installed or similar- I didn't have things THAT important (I haven't made any back-ups, nor a recovery USB), so I made an initial state lenovo recovery  using the Novo button.

After several more fixing methods (unsuccessfull again, people suggested getting into the command promt, using the chkdsk command, but it was in a drive called x:, couldn't find other drives/changing from UEFI to Legacy Support in BIOS settings, I changed them, then changed them back to defaults) it started giving me the "IPv4/IPv6 Network 0 (MAC Adress) boot failed" errors and several tries more, now it constantly gives me the "Windows boot Manager boot failed" error, followed by the IPv4/IPv6 ones. after which it takes me to a blank bright-blue screen with my only cursor visible (similar to what it does i I tell it to go to Lenovo recovery menu now). Also, after trying to turn it on (in the current/last state) it gave me the 0xc000000f error. So, what's happening (the HDD is recognized in the BIOS, the laptop itslef hasn't been moved more then four or five time and used properly)? I have no instalation/repair disc with the laptop.

Lenovo U/S Series :: U410 - SSD Not Seen In BIOS

Aug 4, 2014

I have had my laptop for over a year, and after upgrading various drivers in an attempt to fix a random power off issue, have now found that the laptop will BSOD everytime I wake it from sleep.
I am running Windows 8.1
The root cause seems to be that the SSD no longer appears in the BIOS, therefore I am unable to re-install the Intel Rapid Start software and enable RAID which seems to be a requirement.
My BIOS version is 65CN97WW dated 29/01/2013
This is what I see using DISKPART
DISKPART> list disk

Disk ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt
-------- ------------- ------- ------- --- ---
Disk 0 Online 931 GB 0 B * 
There is definitely an SSD in the laptop.
Can this be fixed with a BIOS update?

Lenovo U410 U/S Series :: Set Of USB Speakers On A Faulty USB Cable

Jun 4, 2014

I have a Lenovo U410 and a set of USB speakers on a faulty USB cable. I know, my fault: i connected the cable and the "+" and "-" connected for a short time. In my laptop i heard a little electrical explosion (no smell) and the laptop immediately powered off itself. At once i removed the USB cable and switched the laptop back on: no problems (!). But once booted, no USB port was working anymore. So my conclusion: i "fried" the system board somewhere.
The laptop is in its guarantee period, however i removed the hard drive and replaced it with an SSD.  I assume the guarantee is lost when i replaced the HDD. I just re-opened the casing but i am unable to find "fried" components or "burned" areas.

1. can i investigate more, or find a solution myself?

2. i probably need a new system board. Where can i order a new system board?

Lenovo U/S Series :: Using SSD And HDD Express Cache In IdeaPad U410

Nov 12, 2012

Lenovo U410 comes with 24 GB SSD and 500 GB HDD. Lenovo claims that they use some express cache to get faster speed during bootup and opening apps.
Lenovo recommends clean install of ideapad system while upgrading to windows 8.

My problem: As I am doing clean install , I want to delete LENOVO partition. The technical support guy also told me in phone that I can delete the partition and create my own.
But how will I use ssd and hdd? In my laptop, the windows OS was installed in 500 GB hdd and 24 GB ssd was used for some "express cache" .
But if I delete all the partition, how will I configure such that 24 gb ssd is used? Because lenovo does not provide any software named "express cache"  in their site. 
BUT they provide "Intel Rapid start, Intel rapid storage" 
So does these rapid start and storage use 24 GB ssd aand improve my boot time?

Lenovo Ideapad U410,Ruby Red Color
i5 processor,4 GB ram,1 GB nvidia 610M GPU,24GB SSD,500GB HDD.

Lenovo U/S Series :: U410 - Change AHCI To RAID

May 10, 2014

Changing Chipset SATA Mode from AHCI to RAID?
I have already checked:
1) Changing regiser's key as above/;
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesstorahci Start 3 -> 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesiaStorA Start 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesiaStorV Start 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesstorahci Error Control 3 -> 0
Unfortunately after rebooting in RAID mode, OS doesn't work.
2) Going step by step over the description made by microsoft support team: [URL] .....
Doesn't work.
My aim is to configure my SSD as a cache drive and as I read - without changing mode into RAID, it wouldn't work.
Maybe there is a possibility to set up SSD as cache in AHCI mode?

Lenovo U/S Series :: Can't Change Screen Brightness Anymore - U410

Jun 27, 2014

For some reason I can't change my screen brightness anymore. I've already tried a HD 4000 driver rollback to version and I also disabled "adaptive screen brightness" at the power management. For some reason I can change the brightness by using the "microsoft basic display adapter" driver instead of the HD 4000 but that isn't a real solution.

Lenovo U/S Series :: U410 Not Displaying On 2nd Monitor (Samsung S24D390HL)

Sep 8, 2014

I purchased an external monitor recently so I can extend my Lenovo U410 IdeaPad's display. The monitor connects to my laptop via an HDMI cable. The problem is, nothing from my laptop is displayed on the external monitor.
The external monitor is still left with a black screeen with either the HDMI and Analog symbol flickering back and forth on the top left corner, or a box that shows "Check Signal Cable" with red, green, and blue boxes below. 
On Control Panel>Appearance and Personalization>Display>Screen Resolution, I can see that the external monitor is detected: I have the external monitor as Display 2, and I have "Multiple displays:" set at "Extend these displays"I know that the monitor is not broken, because it works as an external monitor for my MAC (via HDMI cable as well) ....

Lenovo U/S Series :: IdeaPad U410 - Sound Device Can't Be Found Or Busy

Jun 20, 2013

I cannot get any audio from my IdeaPad.  When I randomly select a mp3 and try to play it with Windows Media Player, I immediately get a mesage that the sound device can't be found or is busy (or something to that effect).  I also don't hear sound from internet videos or system sounds such as the start up song.  The sound is not muted and volume is at 100%. 

I have uninstalled the device drivers for both the Connexant audio and microphone, reloaded them, and rebooted.  Same problem. 

My question, of course, is: restoring sound from my computer short of a system reset?

Lenovo U/S Series :: U410 Rapid Start - Smart Response Setup

Apr 5, 2014

I have a lenovo u410 with a 500gb hdd and a 24 gb cache. Now, I am experienced with hardware and software and have built/reinstalled a lot of computers before. This time it is a bit different. I did not get my windows 8 key with the computer only the OneKey recovery. I did do a backup with this program when the computer was new and I assume it is on the hdd.

So what I want to do is to replace the hdd with a new 2,5 in ssd and keep my windows 8 licence + all the lenovo goodness ( onekey feature, keyboard shortcuts etc..). What would be the best way of doing this? Can i transfer the backup I did to the new drive?

Lenovo U/S Series :: IdeaPad U410 - Bluetooth Freezes / Stopped Working After Few Minutes Of Use

Jul 31, 2012

I have had my Ideapad U410 for about 18 months now.
Recently my bluetooth mouse has stopped working after a few minutes of use. If I switch the mouse off and then on again it works again. I assumed that it was a problem with the mouse so I purchased a new one.
Guess what. The same problem.
Now with two blutooth mice displaying the same problem I am guessing that the trouble lies within the laptop, but what to do to identify whats going wrong.

Lenovo U/S Series :: IdeaPad U410 WiFi Frequently Disconnected From Home Wireless Connection Only

Sep 3, 2012

Basically, i recently purchased a Lenovo Ideapad U410 blue from Canada Computer & Electronic. Everything was good until recently, I am having trouble connect to my home network!! It was fine, but two days ago, it just frequently drop out from my home wifi( keep saying limited access, no internet connection, then identifying.....no network access) 
The problem is, all other devices i got are fine! My other laptop, my phone, and my ipad are all good to connect to my home wifi!!! And what's more confusing is that, my U410 is OK to connect to other network like the hotspot I set up from my iphone(just trying), my frds' wifi......And what's even more bothering, is that it happened two days ago, and yesterday the problem just magically disappeared!! I used it surfing internet for the whole last night with my home wifi and no problem with it.

However, i woke up this morning, problem popped up again,, can't connect to internet! I mean, the signal is super good!!!! no problem with detecting network, even connecting, it just wont identify or whatever. Drivers all up to date! I mean is a brand new computer....
SO is it my laptop's problem, or my network adapter's problem , or is it my router's problem!!!

Lenovo B / G Series :: G500 With New Disk - Restore Fails At 42%

Apr 6, 2014

I have a new G500 with a 500GB drive and Windows 8.1 preinstalled. I foolishly thought it would be easy to upgrade it to 1TB, which is supposed to be supported by the hardware according to the technical documents. Using OKR I have created a backup USB disk, ensuring that the option to copy the Recovery Partition is checked. All appears fine, I get a message to say that  the disk was created successfully. I have not taken the recommended option to delete the recovery partition at this point. When I then replace the internal drive, boot from the recovery USB drive and run the restore, it fails at 42% with the message "There was a problem resetting your PC." No other information is provided and the only option available is to power off the PC. I have tried all three USB ports, 2 different 1TB disks and have tried all the options available. I have also tried two different USB disks for the back up.
This machine is only 2 weeks old but it is starting to drive me round the bend. As it takes the best part of two hours to fail it is a time consuming procedure.
It seems that Lenovo's backup/restore software simply doesn't work. It may be something to do with the BIOS - this machine has a newer version than is available from Lenovo's website.

Lenovo U/S Series :: Cannot Install WLAN Driver On U410 - Aborts On (Search Target Device In This Machine)

Oct 24, 2013

I have uninstalled Windows 8 and installed Windows 7 64bit Pro on my new Lenovo Ideapad u410. I managed to get all the drivers working... EXCEPT ONE: The WLAN.
Now here's what I did and what happens every time I try to install the WLAN driver:

I have downloaded the driver "WiFi Link Driver (Intel, CyberTan, Liteon) for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)" from the page [URL] ... multiple times and tried installing it multiple times. The installation process works until the status "Search the target device in this machine" shows up. As soon as this status shows up, the installation exits without an error message or anything else. How to get it working. I can't even use this machine without WLAN.
By the way:
- LAN works fine
- It's not a hardware issue as the WiFi worked fine on the preinstalled Win8
- The WiFi won't even show up under Windows
- I have not installed "Intel WiMax Driver for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)" driver as I am told that this is not used.
- Of course I am running the .exe as Administrator
- I tried installing Win7 on UEFI before.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X1 Carbon - Fails WWAN Connection Yet SMS Working

Apr 8, 2014

The Broadband on my X1 Carbon (Gen 2) always fails to connect with an error message saying that "You're either out of service or SIM card not activated" while neither of these conditions are true. Oddly, SMS is working fine and I can both send and receive messages without problems.
What could be wrong? How can I diagnose and fix the issue?
Some more details:
- The ultra-book is a Type 20A7 which came with the SIM slot but no broadband modem. At that point Access Connections showed the Broadband option greyed out. I had to call support to find out why and that's when I learned there was no modem.
- Support told me to order part number 04X6038 which is a Sierra Wireless EM7355. After installing the latest driver, the Broadband option was now enabled but it still failed with the error message mentioned above.
- At the wireless store I told them it was not working and they gave me a new SIM card. This time I received a welcome SMS message. i tried sending to a few numbers and replying which works.
- The wireless provider took the IMEI number of the EM7355 and confirmed it was compatible which seems logical considering SMS is working.

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 B / G Series :: B570 Display Fails After Dual Monitor Display

After running my B570 (1068) with an extended display, the unit went into hibernation. On wake-up the laptop screen is indecipherable garbage. The second display will run to show BIOS startup but then reverts to the built-in screen - which is illegible. Toggling the F3 key does not get a good screen.
I read another post suggesting this is a hardware failure. What parts have failed?

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 Fails To Boot Up

Jul 23, 2012

I closed Down the lid to head to my room and then came back about five minutes later, opened it up, and pressed the power button. A flash of a blue screen appears but I can't read what it says on it and then once it tries to load it reverts to a black screen that says "Windows has failed to start up . A recent hardware or software change might be the cause." Then I can either launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally.

I have tried both options, ran a hardware diagnostic test twice, tried to restore to a previous date, and tried to boot up in safe mode but each option fails and it just goes back to this black screen with the two options.

The only option I haven't tried is reverting to factory settings but that is because I would like to save my files first.
