After a clean install of Win 10 Home, I tried to reinstall the Yoga Mode Control driver from here: http://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Yoga-Series/yoga-900-13isk2/80UE/005KC... The install ends without error, but does not confirm success either. The app does not appear to install.  This same thing happens with Lenovo Utility.

Hello All, I have an issue with my YOGA 700 laptop when logged in multiple accounts simultaneously. Whenever an account is left logged on and the user is switched as opposed to logging off, the cpu usage ramps up very high with several RUNDLL32 processes being the culprit. I have checked the RUNDLL32 processes with Process Explorer and the command line are as follows:C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\EnableAutoRotation.dll,RunCustomMonitor The directory is as follows: C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\ The only solution I have found is restarting the laptop. The problems comes back when again more than one user is logged in. Also, the rundll32 processes only run high cpu on one account at a time and there doesn't seem to be a preference for a specific account, all of them are plagued one at a time with the problem. Disabling the Yoga Mode Control service is a fix but that breaks the mode control which is essential in this laptop. I have tried installing all the available software on the Software page foor the YOGA 700. The rundll32 processes drain the battery very fast and I can't always log off other users when they have apps open!  I have posted a screenshot of process explorer showing 2 rundll32.exe processes using 25% cpu usage each. However, sometimes up to 4 rundll32.exe processes open up and they use combined 100% cpu usage, which makes the laptop run very hot and slow. In t... Read more

Hey guys, I'm a PreMed student who's life revolves around his laptop. I'm always on social media, watching some show, listening to music, doing an essay, taking notes, updating some website, or emailing some person on campus. Of course, my old laptop broke. It was a Dell Inspiron. Now, I have a campus job and have been saving money(so money is not factor necessarily). After researching my options, I've narrowed my choices down to the three previously listed laptops. I just want to know which do you guys suggest and why?

A:Surface Book vs Lenovo Yoga 900 vs ThinkPad X1 Yoga

By looking at your requirement, you prefer on-the-go PC that lets you do all that on a decent budget, SP4 is better than SB(if you want lightweight device and decent battery life), Lenovo's are pretty good too. X1 w/o OLED seems to be a better buy in terms of ultraportability and battery life. You could wait for others to chime in.

I have two staff members with different Yoga models, but with the same pen issue. Say, for instance, OneNote is open. The pen doesn't draw or write, but it can select and still be recognized. When I try using an old stylus from an HP Elitebook, it works TOTALLY fine - even the button on the pen functions properly. This suddenly started after months of the Lenovo pens working fine. I thought maybe it was a driver issue, but it can't be as the HP pen works.... I'm thinking it's the pen itself just getting worn down? It looks okay though but may be just a little loose... Any help / direction would be greatly appreciated!

I've been trying to do some research on this but have come up short at every turn. I just bought a Yoga 900 and the fan noise is just ridiculous. It's so annoying and I'd like to know if there's anything I can do about it. It mostly occurs when I'm playing games but it's just SO loud something seems off. Does anyone know what I can do about this?

Hello! The Yoga 900 is my first Lenovo PC. I had recently owned the HP Spectre x360 i7 Skylake, QHD in Ash Siver. It is truly a beautiful machine, most of all in Ash Silver. I ended up returning it and going with the Yoga 900. My reasons where: The Spectre is heavier and a bit thicker than the Yoga, which makes for a not so nice tablet experience. The Spectre, also gets too warm and sometimes too hot, around the left palm rest area. These are all problems that I have not had with the Yoga 900 which has double the RAM, for $100.00 less than the Spectre model I had.  Okay, so with the Yoga 900, I have now been through 3 of them. 2 of them, had lint underneath the final coat of paint on the lid. On both, I didn't notice until a day or two after my purchase, when I ran my hand over the lid and felt small bumps as if grains of sand were stuck to the lid. Upon a closer look with a bright LED light; I noticed actual lint/hairs under the silver painted lid. Now with my third unit, the paint is lint-free but I have noticed something that I'm trying to figure out whether or not is normal. When the unit is closed, on the right side, I have noticed that the right side upper lid, sicks out further than the right side bottom section (bottom section as in where the power button is). Please let me know if your Yoga, is also uneven along the right side too. Thank you!   

A:Yoga 900 Quality Control Questions

I have also had a "rough" experience with my yoga 900. I am now on my 3rd. The first had a very loose mouse pad and a few pieces of painted lint/hairs on the lid as you describe. It also had a weak backlight on the volume down key compared to the rest of the keyboard which was unfortunate. My second was worse, the entire bottom of the laptop was rough, almost like a fine sandpaper. The lid was much smoother like it is supposed to be. The mouse pad was even worse on the 2nd one as well. The backlight of the keyboard thankfully was perfect. Im a night owl so this small thing is surprisingly important. My significant other convinced me to return it due to the rough underside and bad mousepad, considering how much I paid for the system in the first place. Soooo, now I am on my 3rd Yoga 900, The paint is perfect, the trackpad is much better but on this one the backlight (same volume down key) on the keyboard has the same issue as the 1st laptop. I almost feel like maybe I should wait till all of the manufacturing issues are resolved. Love the form factor and specs but quality control does seem to be lacking atm.   Zachary

Regarding driver updates, there's a feature in Lenovo Companion that assists with that.

Hello, we got 2x Try-and-Buy Lenovo Yoga Tablet Laptops (an X1 Yoga and a Yoga 260) to evaluate their suitability for our company, since we intend to upgrade several of our employees laptops. However, ever since we got the devices we noticed on both of them frequent issues with the display and waking from sleep. Very often the laptops won't wake up properly with the screen staying black. In those cases the display-backlight seems to turn on, and I assume the system is running somehow in the background. Putting the computer to sleep again (e.g. by closing the lid) makes the computer wake up properly on the second attempt. Different error in the same category is when a video is running and the laptop is connected to AC - plugging out the AC cord made the screen go black while the media content's sound kept playing. All drivers were updated to the newest version via Lenovo System Update 5.07.0029. Any ideas? I also tried to open a support ticket, but Lenovo wanted to send and install a new display (!). Apparently, that seems like a driver/software issue?! Best regards

So three weeks ago, I was working on my Yoga 3 14" and popped to get a drink, I came back and the screen was blank, I assumed it had gone to sleep, so hit a key to wake it up. Nothing! The laptop was plugged in, so I know it hadn't run out of charge.After sheer panic, I contacted Lenovo, who told me that my warranty was out by a month, and that I could send it to them to diagnose, and they would tell me how much to fix, then it was up to me if they did or not.One I wouldn't be happy about not having my laptop for a couple of weeks minimum, but also it had all my private information on.I turned to good old google, and stumbled across this forum, and somebody with the same problem.Their solution was to unscrew the back case of the laptop (as mentioned above, my warranty was already out), remove the battery cable, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and reconnect the battery cable.I did this, and low and behold it worked. Fantastic!Only for it to happen twice more that week, and approx twice a week since. Then yesterday my brother contacts me saying his laptop has died, just won't turn on. His is the Yoga 2 Pro, I told him to bring it to mine, and I would try what I had to do to mine, to his, low and behold, the same solution worked. Seeing as I wasn't the first person to have this issue, and I'm guessing others have used the solution but not commented, this is obviously a fault with the Yoga range. I'm hoping that Lenovo can address this issue, as I fe...

My Yoga 2 13 (Mod 20344) has a pre-installed HDD and runs Win 8.1.  I plan to install Win 7 on this machine from a bootable usb stick, and to avoid conflicts/complications with dual booting etc I have installed a Samsung 850 EVO MZ-N5E250 in the free SSD slot. I have disconnected the HDD, but I have left it in place. I have entered BIOS and disabled 'secure boot' and turned off UEFI. The information tab of the BIOS shows that the SSD is recognised. When I start up I get the message that the "Default Boot Device is Missing or Boot Failed" message. I go into BOOT MANAGER and I have no options available. I also need to change SATA to AHCI, but this is nowhere to be seen (presumably it would be available in the BOOT MANAGER). Any guidance would be appreciated. Ian

Hi there I would like to make a clean install of Windows 10 Pro on my Yoga 460 as it is very sluggish and did actually even freeze since I received it yesterday. Being completely new to Windows 10, Touchscreen-Devices and UEFI I am not sure which is the best way to go arround this. Entering the recovery (disrupting startup) seems like the best method for a completely clean install. Is there any easier way for that? Secondly, I would like to only install the minimum of Lenovo programs which are needed in order to use all of the features of the device. Most, if not all, to me seem like there are only an overlay of the Windows settings.

Hello and welcome,
 
You can make your own media.  In the tool-bar's search box type "recovery drive" and select the "create recovery drive" option. You'll need a 16GB flash drive.
 
You won't need to know the key.  It's baked into the UEFI BIOS and is detected automatically - even in a  Windows 10 clean install.
 
To reinstall just boot the flash drive.

I purchased a Yoga 900 - model 80UE I am unable to install my copy of PhotoShop 7. I was able to install it on a Sager Laptop that also had Windows 10 and an i7 processor. The Autorun opens, and gets past the user agreement, and on to the screen where I choose Installation  or Explore Disc. When I click on the button to install PhotoShop, or Adobe Reader, there is a momentary spinning wheel that vanishes and the CD player stops working. After some investigation I found multipe instances of Set Up in the Task Manager - one for each attempt to lauch the Setup. These are listed as Setup 32 bit. It also happens when I go into the disc and double click on the Setup inside the PhotoShop folder. I have rebooted, as well as shut down, etc. Nothing will get the installation to kick in. Again, I was able to install PS 7 from the same disc and same external disc drive on a Sager laptop with Windows 10 and an i7 processor. If anyone has suggestions that might help me get this program installed (Adobe no longer sells PhotoShop, it is a subscription service only and I cannot get a download version of PS7 which is maybe 10 years old.) I still have a few days where I can return this Lenovo and get something else, which I will certainly do if I cannot install this software.

Good day and welcome to the community.Sorry you're having difficulty.
I confess no knowledge of using PS, so this is a wild guess, a really wild guess, but could it be hanging up on the 3200x1800 panel resolution? Like a hardware enumeration hang?

Edit to add: There is some interesting discussion here: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1941912Things ranging from just letting the installer run for a couple hours, to copying the CD contents to the main drive and then running setup, to running the installer in safe-mode.Regards.

Hi all.First of all sorry for my bad English. And here is my problem:I just bought a new laptop "Yoga 2 Pro". Because I have a legal copy of Windows 8.1 Pro I decided to reinstall the system. Before re installing BIOS UI looked normal but after re installation of the operating system BIOS UI looks strange and can not use it. You can see it on the attached photos. I tried to reinstall the system a few times but immediately after installation BIOS UI looked like in the pictures. Interesting that after removing system from SSD, BIOS UI is starting to look normal and is fully functional. I even tried different versions of the operating system because I thought that the cause lies with the ISO file. The effect has always been the same. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this problem?I will be grateful for any suggestions.

Hello, I just recently clean installed windows 10 on my Lenovo Yoga 500-14IBD, replacing the 1TB HDD with a 128GB SSD (I don't have that much stuff). Computer seems to launch apps faster (most of the time) and also starts up faster, but my internet browsing is still kind of laggy.  So i'm wondering If i need to change the computer in anyway (BIOS, etc?) now it has a SSD rather than the shipped with HDD. Also, the clean install has taken all my preinstalled Lenovo programs so I also wonder if this will affect the performance of my laptop(- or is it better)? Because I went to the support page for my laptop and downloaded a driver for the touchpad thinking it would be the newest available and before it downloaded it said it was older than the driver it would be replacing, which I thought strange and it's got me asking if the support page is kept up to date? Ideally I would download a Lenovo app that ckecks my system for out of date or absent Lenovo software that should be there. If anyone could answer those questions I would be extremely grateful. Thanks, David

I'm having issues with the fan being very loud at moderate temperatures. The fan stays on despite being idle as well and I think I've seen other people with this issue. Using core temp, my CPU temperature is only 34-37C, even then the fan is audible. Going to 44C while watching some videos makes the fan spin even louder. Considering the temperatures aren't even that high for a laptop, why does the fan speed need to ramp up so high? None of the fan control software work with this laptop. Can you come out with an update that will fix this issue? Otherwise, I'm thinking of just returning the laptop. Thanks,Mike

Hi everybody,
 
I just received my Yoga 2 13 here in Germany on thursday.
 
I thought some people here are probably interested about upgradability.
 
My version is a core i3 4010U, 4GB, 500GH HD. Price was 799 ?. I didn't see this version in the US Lenovo shop.
 
The HD is a special ultra slim 5mm version (WD5000MPCK) with a special connector (SFF-8784) which can't be easily replaced by a SSD.
 
But there is a free M.2 slot (NGFF). I already ordered a 256GB M.2 SSD (Crucial m500) and will try to move the OS to the SSD next week.
 
I guess the SSD models will occupy the M.2 slot and will have the HD slot free.
 
The Wifi card is also replacable. Unfortunally the memory is soldered and not expandable.
 
There is already a yoga2 13 hardware maintenance manual, just google it.

A photo colleague dumped his Chromebook on my lap (gratis) with some [email protected]#$ comments ... I will not comment as to why, and I thought this could replace my clunky W540 for pre made portfolio/slide or video presentations. OK, here is the deal.  The Cloud storage is nice, but I'm off on the road with no WiFi, at a client's house. Last time I tested the Chrome Cloud, the presentation 'stuttered' and the flow was disconcerting, and was a discredit to my abilities. I have mutliple prsentations, and 16gb is not enough, particularly when visiting distinct client with different or multiple  portfolio requirements. Is there any way to change the 16gb standard card to a 64gb (There are now 200gb micro SD cards!): Sandisk 200GB SD - The future. I hate to fiddle with the built in SD port, not counting the potential loss of these tiny cards.  I would like it to be an  internal or at least sealed and protected from accidental 'pop-outs'. As the eMMC is actually built on the SD card protocol, can I open and replace the meager 16gb with a more modern larger storage for of WiFi use. Any hack or hints before I pass this unit off, would be appreciated.  Incredible 'oyster' closure system.  Even the Chrome Pixel has a lid finger catch groove.

I do have and use the "SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive":  Did not try it in Chromebook yet, as the Google Store does not seem to have the Chrome extension.  It does play well on my Adroids (Cell and Tablet). Sandisk Wireless Media drive. That may be a way to go if I can get it to work as just a raw drive using some workaround software controls.  I guess another workaround and something else to carry & lose.

Planning to go to Europe next month and take my new Yoga 2 11 with me. Do I need to use a "Converter" to connect to the electrical system over there. I have read somewhere that if I use the power connector that came with the PC, it will automatically convert the electric from 220 to 110. Just wanted to get some independent verification before I do that.

A:Traveling with a Yoga 2 11

Hello and welcome,
 
With modern electronics you generally don't need a converter.  Your AC power brick/wall-wart probably says something like 100-240VAC/50-60Hz so it's "universal".  Please verify.
 
You will likely need a (mechanical) plug adapter to allow you to plug into available wall power.  This will vary depending on which contries you visit.  There are some more-or-less universal adapters available.

I put a Samsung Pro 950 SSD in my Yoga 900.  My system came with the NVMe SAMSUNG MZVLV256 drive as standard. Note this is a PCIe interface - very fast, but not compatible with a normal M.2 SATA interface.  Run "dxdiag" to confirm you have the NVMe type drive or not and buy accordingly.  You will also have to do a clean install if you get the NVMe drive because no one yet makes an external USB encolsure for the NVMe type, so you won't be able to do a simple clone.  And when you do a clean install, Windows will advise that it does not see a drive installed.  You will need to install some drivers first.  You can get them here: http://www.ramk.net/ It takes some time to get this done, but it works and the drive is very fast.

Hello there, people of the Land of Lenovo. Today I come knocking your door looking for some help with my Yoga 3-1470 (80JH). Here's what's happening. The fan won't run. At all. I first noticed it becuase the fans run at full speed for roughly a second at startup everytime. This time, it didn't. Then, the OneKey Optimizer has the Dust Cleaning option that runs everyday, but running that makes no noise. None whatsoever. No amount of restarting has helped. The fans don't run on battery power nor when plugged in. I've tried changing socket and all. Updated the BIOS, too, which made no difference. Tracking the temperature on SpeedFan, it's clearly noticeable that there's something wrong. The ambient room temperature is always between 21 - 24 degrees C, but the computer goes up to the mid-40s when browsing Chrome even, where it used to sit in the mid-20s. The strange thing is that it's completely quiet. There has however started a new strange noise, sort of like a rapid and consistent subdued yet sharp series of clicks. It happens around the same times I'm guessing a fan would run, but maybe I'm wrong. What is even weirder is that when the fan is told to run, by say, OKO, it doesn't even always make this strange clicking. I'm aware it could be a hardware issue, but I need to make sure that it isn't anything else.



Have a good day.

Does anyone know of any plans to offer the Yoga 900 with a 4K display? The 1080P resolution seems ridiculously inadequeate for such a large display.

Good day.
 
As you mention an FHD display (1920x1080), I presume you're querying about the Yoga Home 900 AIO vs the Yoga 900 convertible laptop. As such, I've moved your post to the Lenovo AIO Desktop forum.

Hi, I ordered for a P40 Yoga couple of days ago, inbuilt storage is 256GB SSD, there is an additional M.2 slot, can I add a 1TB HDD in that slot? Spec says max is 512GB SSD, so I am not sure about this. I hope someone can help. Thanks in advance!
