Lenovo Yoga Flex 14 :: Dropping Bluetooth Connection On IdeaPad I3 Laptop?
Jul 29, 2014
I've been trying to use a Logitech ultrathin touch bluetooth mouse and microsoft sculpt mobile bluetooth keyboard with my ideapad. I'm running Windows 8.1. Both work fine for a while but then it appears they lose the bluetooth connection. This seems to often coincide with access network/internet over WiFi. The only solution is to call up the Bluetooth manage devices setting and let it reconnect. If I leave the manage bluetooth device page open on a second screen it works, but clearly its not ideal!
I was running the Lenovo driver for Bluetooth but I've tried removing it and using the Generic Windows driver. So far though the same happened after a short while.
I know, that F10 it's a Windows-only laptop and Linux not officially supported on it by Lenovo,
Have purchased just yesterday a new IdeaPad F10, Spanish edition
Have successfully installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 x64 on it. Have preserverd the possibility to boot Windows and Recovery.
The installation was smooth, every things was working fine, but:
After the closing the cap, the laptop was going to hibernate, and then no way to resume or get it on.
Have tried to press the power button for a 8-10 second then disconnect the AC cable.
When doing this the power indicator becomes white for around of 30-40 seconds then off, during this nothing is happens, the screeen is black, no fans no HDD activity noise. Only if pressing the Windows logo on the screen it´s become giving a some sound, not a beep but it hears like... a rattle or something like..
It is dead now? I belive that disconnecting the battery can solve this but it´s mean loosing the warranty, because it´s necessary to remove the back screws. Or it´s possible to reanimate it by the other way?
I have read about many issues regarding Wifi connection (connection drops often without any reason, poor signal strength, too long time to establich connection...). My problem could sound similar, but it's rather different:
Although my wireless connection appears like Enabled in Win8, I cannot switch it on / connect. It appears like Not Connected (Wifi = Off). In fact, I cannot see any wifi network when the list of available networks used to be.
- I checked BIOS, and it's set as Enabled. - I updated BIOS to the last version. - I updated wireless wireless drivers to the last version - I modified the wireless configuration as it's especified in the long forum thread for Wifi issues
But nothing has been successfull. For some strange reason, I cannot switch the wifi device on.
My Lenovo Ideapad Flex laptop does not switch on when I press the power button. It was working till this morning, when I switched it off (via an operating system shut down in Windows 8.1). When I tried to turn it on an hour later, I found that pushing the power button has no effect at all.
I tried pushing the novo button. In this case the laptop does turn on and shows the "lenovo" welcome screen for a few seconds. However, it promptly switches off again. The symptoms do not depend on the laptop being connceted to power: they are exactly the same in the two cases.
My integrated webcam on my lenovo yoga ideapad seems to be malfuncitoning. When I try to open any camera using applications the screen is black with no error message or viewable problems. When I check in device manager the camera says all the drivers are updated and it is in working condition.
Things I've tried/ Things others have suggested and did not work:
fn+esc Trying it in other apps besides camera Check device manager for driver issues Update Drivers Disable Camera
I use a USB MIDI keyboard (Akai LPK25) with my Ideapad. I've not previously had an issue with this configuration, but since about a week ago, as soon as I plug in the device the touch screen becomes disabled. Removing the device doesn't restore touch screen functionality; I actually have to reboot.
Was there a recent USB upgrade that's causing this issue?
When I first got my Y2P I tried to pair my phone with it to use that silly Lenovo SMS utility. That was 4 monts ago and I am at my wits end trying to UN install my phone. I cannot get my computer to pair to anything other than my bt mouse. Have tried headphones and keyboards... no go!!!
It cannot even connect to my phone!!! I have tried...
-Manually removed all bluetooth drivers and my phone's driver. Including showing hidden devices. -Deleted the drivers using intel's driver removal tool -Installed new drivers -Tried every method for removing drivers that shows up on search engines on the first two pages.
I can't get my Yoga to recognise any BT devices. I have driver version 1.3.639.3 dated 1/9/2012. I downloaded an update otwb33ww.exe version 3.757.754.082313 but when I install it, I get eventually get a dialog saying "Confirm that Bluetooth is enabled on your system. Plug in your device and click 'OK'. I switch on my BT headphones, click OK and get a message saying "Reeltek Bluetooth is not installed on your system". Then have to restart and end up back with the old drivers.
Just noticed I can connect to my iPhone but still not my Plantronics headphones...
Having issues with connecting to a Bluetooth speaker or headphones- the devices are technically paired (all icons and prompts say "connected") but the music still comes out thru the speakers. How I can get it to work- no other laptop I've had as had this problem?!
Just bought my Yoga yesterday and am thoroughly enjoying it. A problem I encountered was when trying to pair the Bluetooth to a Belkin A2DP receiver (essentially, it appears as a Bluetooth audio headset to the computer). Audio quality sent to the speaker is very poor. I verified that the Belkin unit was functioning properly by pairing two other Bluetooth devices and having no issues with audio playback. I also updated to the latest RealTek Bluetooth driver on Lenovo's website. Still with bad audio quality.
The Wifi on this laptop keeps either dropping connection, or changing to a "limited" network. Sometimes it works fine, but more often than not it drops out. All other wifi enabled devices in my house work fine, so I know it's not the internet. I've also tested on two other networks where the same dropping out occurs.
Windows 8 64 Bit Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 (up to date)
With my Lenovo P500 IdeaPad I CAN connect via wifi but NOT with ethernet cable. It just stopped working one day. Windows 7 device manager no longer recognizes device. I assume I need to replace the ethernet card. True? If so, is this possible or is it part of the motherboard?
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?
I just purchased the Ideapad S415 Touch. The wifi connection drops OFTEN. It still shows that it is connected, but there is no internet pages load, email stops working, etc. If I hit "disconnect" on the connection, then hit "connect" again, it works great . . . . for a few more minutes or an hour or whatever. I went into "properties" and changed the settings on roaming and power management per an article I found on this site. I think this may have worked a bit, but it's still happening.
I have an Ideapad Y510 that has Vista and I'm having a problem connecting to the internet. I have other computers running in the house (this one I'm now typing on) so my internet is working correctly just not on my laptop. The laptop was working and connecting but something happened and now it says that I have limited access to the internet.
I read that it may not be getting an IP address assigned to it. I called my internet provider and they ran through their troubleshooting steps but figured it was in the computer. I don't know if the driver has been corrupted. I got the software CD that came with it and tried to load it again but it didn't work (not sure if I did it correctly).
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.
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?
I´ve got a problem when I connect the yoga 2 pro with my TV (8 year old sony, full hd) with HDMI. The picture doesn´t fit into the screen, it is too big. I tried changing the resolution of both yoga and tv and at the Intel graphics driver I can´t change the scaling option. H
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.
I had bought yoga 2 pro from Malaysia three weeks back. And I had traveled back to India last week.The PC was working fine till yesterday. Yesterday while I was working suddenly the system hangs and I had to hard reset. But after that the system didn't boot up. It shows boot device not found. I have switched it off and tried booting using restore button and opened the bios it shows that HDD not detected.
Similar kind of issue I faced two times before but if I hard boot again it worked fine.
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????
