Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Flex :: SSD Locking Up - Freezes Up For Up To A Minute At A Time

Dec 29, 2014

I've got a brand new Yoga 3 Pro with the 256GB Liteon SSD. Every 20-90 minutes, it freezes up for up to a minute at a time. If I keep the task manager opened up and check it, I can see disk usage at 100%. System process is usually up at the top, but looks like it's only writing maybe 1MB/s, so it's not like it's at capacity.
I've updated the Intel Chipset to the latest drivers. Intel's RST tool seems to think everything is ok.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: Energy Management Freezes When Opened And Gives Security Message

Aug 21, 2014

I have Lenovo yoga 2 pro with a clean installed Windows 8.1 Pro. My Lenovo Energy Management doesn't function properly. 
When I open the Energy Manager and click the menu button (the one with 3 dots and 3 stripes) the energy manager freezes and I can't do anything with it. It doesn't let me click any buttons or even close it with the little x. I can only close it from the little task bar icon. 
There is another weird thing, but I don't know wheter it's related: Every time I open the energy manager I get a windows security message from Outlook where I have to fill out my username and password. This only happens if outlook isn't running... This security message dissappears within a few seconds without doing anything, and then for a second another outlook message is displayed that says something about accessing a server... I don't know wheter this is related to whether the energy manager doesn't work, but it seems kind of strange to me...
I tried reinstalling the Energy Manager (v. and tried installing a newer one (v. found here: [URL] ... But I keep having the same problem with the security message and the energy manager freezing.

Lenovo Yoga 13 Flex :: Touchscreen Swipe Gestures Consistently Don't Work First Time

Jun 10, 2013

Whenever I do a gesture from the side after not touching the screen for more than 4 seconds, it doesn't work. It instead registers it as a swipe on the screen near the edge. This is very annoying. It happens constantly.
I suspect this may be the result of a power-saving feature. Maybe the touch-screen turns off after a few seconds and needs to be awoken by tapping it before swiping in from the side. If this is the case, then please up the timer from 3 or 4 seconds to more like 30 or 60. This ruins the smooth flow of Windows 8, if I'm watching a video full-screen in IE and it registers taps of the screen as a pause command, I can't open up the start menu or dock the app to the side without first pausing the video.
Do I need to update drivers? Any update that I'm missing, but I didn't even see an appropriate driver on the driver page. None of them said anything about touch-screen.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Flex :: 13 (Non Pro) - Seven HD Partitions?

Nov 25, 2009

Well, didn't check before installing Macrium Reflect Professional but it detected 7 (seven) partitions in my Yoga2 13 (Not Pro) as follows:

1 - WinRE_DRV 1GB total 313MB used - NTFS Primary
2 - System_DRV 260MB total 28.5MB used - FAT32(LBA) Primary
3 - LRS_ESP 1GB total 497MB used - FAT32 (LBA) Primary
4 - NONE Unformated Primary (?)
5 - Windows OS 422GB total  44.58GB used (C NTFS Primary
6 - Lenovo 25GB total 2.46GB used (D NTFS Primary
7 - PBR_DRV 15.75GB total 12.46GB used NTFS Primary
All Yoga2 13 are like that from the factory or Macrium created some of them? If they are like that from the factory what each of the partitions have inside (other than, obvlously, the #5 Windows.)
In creating an image for restore in case one is needed which ones I should include in the image?

Lenovo Yoga 13 Flex :: How To Boost Volume

Mar 29, 2014

Is there any way to boost volume on Yoga 13?? I have my system volume and video player volume maxed out and it's STILL not loud enough. No it doesn't have anything to do with what I'm watching, and no, nothing to do with the player. Windows Media, VLC, and Divx have been tried.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Flex :: How To Access BIOS

Jun 21, 2014

I purchased a new Flex 2-15 online the past week. The model name shown on the back is "20405". Manufacture date is May 12, 2014. The User Guide refers to a "Novo Button", which is shown in diagrams as being on both the left edge and the right edge near the front. Neither location has a button of any sort. The right edge has a pinhole in the supposed button location. A curved arrow icon is next to the pinhole. I have an inkling this may be some sort of factory reset button. Lacking the Novo button, what is the procedure for accessing the features which the manual says are accessed by pressing this non-existent button?. That is, BIOS, and/or the one touch image backup/restore system?

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: How To Use Recovery Media

Jun 3, 2014

I paid $60 just for some recovery discs to recover my accidentally formatted Yoga 2 Pro. The discs came with no instructions whatsoever, and using them is weird. First of all, there is two disc 1's, no disc 2, yet there is a disc 3 and 4. Support confirmed this is normal. There is also no prompt between discs 1,1, and 2, so despite making my best guess at when to switch, I can't confidently say I'm not screwing things up.
After the whole process completes, the bios can't find bootable media.

Lenovo Yoga 13 Flex :: Main SSD Not Recognized

Feb 25, 2013

I just had my Yoga 13 for about two months and really liked it. Upped RAM to 8GB and added the second SSD. Sweet.
But now I managed to nearly brick my nice little Yoga by spilling juice all over it, and now I am in recovery process.
I checked the original mSATA SSD on another machine, and it looks like it still works fine, all partitions are still there.
In the very beginning after first "drying" the Yoga I got it to boot a couple of times. But now all I get is "Default Boot Device Missing".

Next thing I'll try is putting the SSD in an external USB enclosure and try and boot from there.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: How To Turn Off Gestures

Nov 14, 2013

I just got the Yoga 2 Pro and it seems like a great laptop / tablet.  I have one big problem:  the touchpad is near-unusable for me.  It seems like I'm constantly activating the switch app gesture and just cannot use it.

How do I turn off all of the gestures on the touchpad so that it just functions like a normal mouse????

Lenovo Yoga Flex :: 11s Won't Turn On Without Plugged In

Aug 25, 2014

I've got a Yoga 11s which is barely a few months old and hasn't seen much use. Having the same problem - it won't power on or charge (powers on only when plugged in). In Lenovo Energy Manager battery status shows "Good" and charging status shows "Battery Connected". WIndows power management icon however, shows Plugged-in, not charging. Never had that problem before either, but it came with the power-on failure so I guess they're related.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: Will Not Shutdown Or Sleep

Dec 29, 2013

I cannot get the Y2P to shutdown or sleep. When I try to shut down it powers off but after about 2 seconds it turns itself back on and boots up. Same thing happens when I try to sleep.I've tried pretty much everything I could find online including the following:
-Turn off wake on lan on the network adapter
-Turn off auto restart on windows errors
-Updated bios
-Updated drivers
-Disabled all non microsoft services
-Factory reset of the OS

Went through every device in device manager and turned off "Allow this device to wake the computer"powercfg /lastwake (shows nothing).Shutting down isn't a huge deal as holding down the power button will eventually turn it off. But not being able to sleep the laptop when I close the lid is a deal breaker as the battery constantly drains.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: Keyboard Not Working?

Jul 18, 2014

I just bought a Lenovo Yoga 2 pro and installed windows 8.1 by itsef. During Windows 8.1 initial setup I was able to use keyboard to type in PC Name, but after that the keyboard and touch pad was not working/no any response any more. After Windows 8.1 lunched the keyboard also no any response. I have to use touch screen soft keyboard. But when laptop in BIOS mode (turn power off and press a small round button next to power button) the keyboard was working fine. So I think that the keyboard hardware is ok, but some thing iwas wrong with Windows 8.1 software issue. I also un-selected all on Easy of Access->Keyboard section in Windows 8.1.

Lenovo Yoga 11 Flex :: Battery Is Not Charging (sometimes)

Jul 24, 2013

I have the issue that my newly bought Yoga 11 (three weeks ago) is charging whenever it seems to feel like. The first time I have charged it, it went up to 92 % telling me its now in power state and not charging. This happened triple. Yesterday my Yoga was beneath the 50 % mark and I plugged in the powercable, the same again: not charging. I unplugged the power cable and at 0 % and a shutdown I booted it and it charged perfectely up to 99 % without moaning. I unplugged the cable and at 77 % the same again, I plugged in the power cable and it charged up to 99 % again.
Is this a bug (battery problem) or a feature (thresholds for a long living battery)?

Lenovo Yoga 13 Flex :: Lag After Updating To Windows 8.1

May 24, 2010

I recently updated my Yoga 13 to Windows 8.1 and am now experiencing significant lag when resuming from suspend and periodically while I work. Often I will type and not see the text on the screen for another 5+ seconds. 
I have run Malwarebytes and Windows Defender and found no malware. By keeping an eye on the task manager I have not been able to identify a misbehaving process.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: SSD Random Freezing

May 12, 2013

I own a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (Model 20266) with a stock 256GB Samsung SSD MZMTD256HAGM-000L1. It works well in general, but occasionally it'll freeze for several tens of seconds, particularly when I'm idling or working on something that doesn't use the hard drive. I thought it was an issue with the SSD going to sleep, but disabling hard drive sleep via the Windows Power Options doesn't work. I've tried installing Samsung Magician, but it doesn't support the drive even though it detects its a Samsung SSD.

Is there some setting I need to disable? Failing that, is there some way I can upgrade the firmware? This model doesn't appear on Samsung's website either.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: Battery Not Charging - 0% Available

Aug 13, 2014

My battery is at 0% available, plugged in charging, but it never goes about 0%. I've tried resetting the battery gauge in Energy Manger but that only runs for a few seconds and reports that the gauge reset is complete. I've also disabled the ACPI control in device manager then enabling it and the icon appears to be charging but only for a few seconds then stops. Having conservation mode on or off doesn't seem to make any difference.
The latest BIOS is installed and I believe I have the latest version of Energy Manager.

Lenovo Yoga Flex :: 13 - Empty Recovery Partitions?

Aug 20, 2014

On a brand new Yoga 2 13 (500 GB hdd), when I check disk management, I see the following partitions:

1000 MB (has no volume label) "Healthy (recovery parition)"
260 MB (has no volume label) "Healthy (EFI System Partition)"
1000 MB (has no volume label) "Healthy (OEM Partition)"

Windows8_OS (C 424.26GB "Healthy (Boot, page ... " Lenovo (D 25.00 GB "Healthy (Primary Partition)" 14.17GB (has no volume label) "Healthy (Recovery Parition)" Except C: and C: all other paritions are listed as 100% free. i.e., they are empty.

Shouldn't these partitions contain recovery/boot data?
