Is it faulty BIOS update launcher or what? Did anybody experienced it?Thank you for your help beforehand!

Hello there. I have a few questions regarding the recent release of BIOS update with version number CDCN37WW. Currently my BIOS is on version CDCN35WW. I was about to install it yesterday but did not because of several reasons. I read the instruction saying that I should put the BIOS settings at its default settings before installing the CDCN37WW update and there lies my problem. I bought the 15ISK version with 1TB HDD. A month ago I bought a 128GB SSD and did a clean install of Windows 10 on my new SSD. After booting into Windows 10 on my SSD in Legacy Mode, I format the partition in the 1TB HDD which houses my default installation of Windows 10 (the pre-installed Windows 10 by Lenovo). I did not completely wipe the HDD altogether and thus I still have the partitions created by Lenovo. The main issue that is stopping me from installing the update is my BIOS settiings. In BIOS boot submenu, I have it set to Legacy and then Legacy First so that it detects my SSD. UEFI does not detect my SSD. Default settings sets UEFI instead of Legacy. In conclusion, I cannot install the BIOS update even if I wanted to because I won't be able to boot into Windows 10 on my SSD once I change BIOS settings to default because UEFI (default settings is set to UEFI) does not detect my SSD. My questions are: -1. Does anyone have any solution or workaround to this problem ?2. Is it really compulsory to set the BIOS settings back default ? Or is it just a "... Read more

Dear Lenovo, Please please get rid of the HIDEOUS Lenovo Pinata Color Explosion you guys have added to the bios with update cdcn53ww.Its GROSS, looks like vomit and an explosion of color. Hideous! Why would anyone want to see that HORRIBLE colored background behind the Lenovo logo? please get a new design director, or tell what ever programmer came up with this to stick to programming!! How can I edit this back to the standard white type on black. This has to be the most disgusting logo I have seen since the 80's!!!

Good morning. Before I purchase anything, I would like someone more knowledgeable to confirm that all of the items below are compatible with one another.* Laptop: Lenovo Y700 Touch-15ISKModel: 80NW000PUSRetailer: Best BuyBest Buy Link: http://goo.gl/V8HnQs* RAM (two choices): (1) DIMM, M471A5143DB0-CPB D/25nm/4Gbx8(2) DIMM, M471A1G43DB0-CPB D/25nm/4Gbx8- (2) confuses me because on Amazon it says 8Gb/512Mx64. Is it a single high-capacity stick? If so, should I buy that one or two low-capacity ones? Notably, the Lenovo Hardware Maintenance Manual states that it should read 4Gbx8, not 8Gb.* SSD: Samsung MZVLV512HCJH, 512GB, M.2 (PCIe)Amazon Link: https://goo.gl/Uak1e8Lastly, I don't want to purchase and install a new OS; instead, I'd like to transfer the pre-installed HDD one onto the M.2. Could you please suggest ways to do this?PS: If you feel as if a better laptop exists within the same price range, please let me know.

Hi, I bought Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop around 1 month ago and i noticed 2 thing that kind of bugs me. First problem is very simple to explain but doesn't seem that easy to solve, everytime the laptop is plugged charging if you touch it you can feel static electricity . How bad can this be to the computer? Second thing, after i turn of the computer if my mouse is plugged-in i can see the mouse is still on due to the light under it. Is it normal? Thanks for your time and help.

A:Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop static electricity

Hi Luis and welcome to the community,
 
Try plugging your adapter into another outlet.  If the outlet that it is plugged into isn't properly grounded, that could cause the shock.
 
If this is a wireless mouse with a dongle, it is normal for it to be on if the dongle isn't attached back to the mouse.
 
Regards,
Dave

I currently own and use a "Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop (ideapad)" . It is only around 6 months old, and I've run into my first major error. Issue : I closed the screen on my computer overnight, when I re-opened my computer in the morning, I restarted my computer, and now it won't turn back on. Details about the issue : When I try and turn my computer on, the power button lights up and my keyboard lights up for like 5 seconds, but the screen does nothing but stay black. After those 5 seconds, my keyboard doesn't light up anymore, but I still hear the computer fans running.  **PLEASE HELP**

Hello,  I have the Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) which I received as a replacement for my last Lenovo which could not be fixed by Lenovo Support. Since I received this as a replacement, my warranty only lasted a month (the residual from my initial warranty). Now, I have only had it for a few months and it has had many instances of the blue screen of death with my computer suddenly needing a restart. I do not have warranty anymore so I am reaching out to you all. The hardware scan says the Mathmatical Operations Test on my Intel (HD) Graphics 550 card failed. I got the result code: WVC007002-UL7VFK. I could not find any information about this code online.  Through the Lenovo website I tried to update my Intel driver by downloading the one the website recommended for my computer after I entered my Serial # (I think it was Intel VGA) and after it downloaded I got a warning saying: "Error: The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Obtain the appropriate driver from the computer's manufacturer. Setup will exit." Regarding the blue screen of death, there have been several different error messages, but the one that comes the most often is "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE". The most recent blue screen message was "Stop Code: SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION; What failed: igdkmd64.sys" I am not sure if these problems are related, but it seems the most important issue is the graphics driver since I use a lot o...

Once the issue has been corrected, CDCN35WW or a newer version of the BIOS will be made available". Once the issue has been corrected, CDCN35WW version of the BIOS will be made available again????????So I downgraded my BIOS CDCN35WW to BIOS CDCN30WW, and after that I installed again BIOS CDCN35WW - everything went well, but now my BIOS shows it is CDCN30WW version??? I would be very grateful for any help, thanks in advance.

Hello all, I recently bought a Lenovo Y700-15ISK and as I downloaded the drivers, I stumbled upon the BIOS update. There are 2 bios updates one marked as CDCN35WW and another marked as CDCN52WW having the same release date. My laptop currently has a BIOS version of CDCN27WW, 12/11/2015.So my question is which of these 2 BIOS updates do I download and apply? Do I first apply CDCN35WW and then CDCN52WW or do I apply only CDCN52WW (maybe it contains CDCN35WW)?Also what steps do I need to follow to properly flash the BIOS with minimum risk? My current BIOS settings are UEFI with an SSD as the boot disk with all the other settings not touched. Thanks,Penthon

Hello everyone.Recently bought a y700, my first laptop, and i was very pleased with it untill i found out about the 67 degrees throttle on the GPU, which is incredibly annoying. I was wondering if any of you knew if the bios updates they released fixed that problem. And does updating the bios voids warranty?Also, another thing i'd like to ask bout is : When installing something, games for example, the hdd is used 99% making the laptop really slow. How normal is this? I have the version with a 1 TB 5400 HDD, no SSD.Might seem like noob questions. That's because I am.

So, one recently my Lenovo Solution Center is giving me this error telling me something isn't working. Here's the error code: Result Code: WVC003002-UL7VON. Is this affecting my gaming? Because I haven't been able to run newer games all too well. And this computer has a 970m. That's somewhat new. Secondly, the computer has been running really slow recently, and not being very responsive. It'll freeze from time to time, or it won't work. Like I tried to open my windows search on windows 10, but it just wouldn't let me. Same with the Lenovo Center. I had to completely shut it down, and relaunch it for it to open it up. Thirdly, a question. How do I turn off the little pop-up thing when I turn on caps lock or num lock. I don't need a notification to tell me I pressed it, I know I pressed it. Thanks. And sorry for so much in one thread. This laptop is somewhat bother-some.

I have noticed that the Dolby Audio application keeps switching back to the "Voice" preset regardless of what I do or how many times I try to change it. I have opened up the Dolby Audio app itself and changed to a different preset as well as using the Lenovo Settings app to set the "Dynamic" preset as my default, but after some time I find that the settings will always get reverted back to "Voice" again. In addition to these steps I have also tried updating my audio drivers to the most recent version, but this actually caused the Dolyb Audio app to be completely removed from my machine only to be brought back by first performing a System Restore and then performing a "Repair" operation from the "Uninstall or Change A Program" screen.I finally located the original Dolby Audio X2 Windows API SDK and Dolby Audio X2 Windows APP installation media (located at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Realtek\Audio\DAX2", not contained in the "LENOVO" hard drive partition which contains all other system drivers) and was able to update my driver and re-install the Dolby software to get it operational again, but the problem of switching profiles persists. How do I prevent this profile switching, or is it possible to configure the Dolby Audio application to select a profile based on the application that is running? I find having to manually switch my sound profile back to the "Dynamic" preset a pain.

Hi, I've been experiencing this throttling issue for the past month now ( I've had this laptop since January). The fps drop from 170 to 60 for a couple of seconds and go back up to the initial value. I've had this issue a couple of times before but it would fix itself after restart (usually had it when I wake the laptop from sleep and immediately load CS:GO).  Now, I notice that this happens everytime I start playing and the temp goes above 69 degrees - I used to play with 170-200fps before with GPU temps surpassing 80 degrees with no fps drops at all.  This is really frustrating, especially when knowing that my brother has no FPS drops using my 5 year old Lenovo Y570 with  geforce GT 555m...Is there any way to fix this? I mean the gaming experience, as stated above was fine until a week ago, when I started getting these FPS drops, so that means that this issue can actually be fixed. Specs are Intel Core i7-6700HQGTX960M 4GB12 GB DDR4256GB SSD  ( CS:GO is on the SSD if that matters)I use Speedfan to check the temps. CS:GO is using the nvidia gpu, and the gpu is se to performance, power saving is disabled i am using balanced performance and set all advanced settings to maximum performance.

Hello, I recently bought a Lenovo Y700-15ISK with i5 6300HQ, Geforce GTX 960, 1 TB WD HDD (No SSD). I really like this laptop. But there are some serious issues that I don't know how to fix. First of all, I have installed Windows 10 Home edition. I disabled all the windows 10 problems, that were eating my memory, hdd. But I still find my computer quite slow when working... I expected it to be a beast. Actually it takes about 90 seconds to boot Windows 10. It's not normal... I saw worse laptops boot much faster... And the programs: When I double click My computer it takes like 3-4 seconds to open it. The second time I double click it it's much faster. Right click also lags. Opening chrome takes like 5 to 10 seconds. And when I install programs, install from ISO files, copy files I can't do anything else. The laptop lags a lot, sometimes freezes. But games like GTA, Fifa work fine - no lag in high graphics. I've done a lot of things, reinstalled the windows - nothing helps. Is this normal? Do I need a SSD for windows 10 or what?.... Or do I need to install windwos 10 as UEFI? But I read that there is not a big difference. The HDD has no errors, checked it many times, the transfer speeds are good. The next thing, I decided to go to Windows 7 64 bit on this notebook.

Hello All, I have several issues with my Y700-15ISK. I have the latest BIOS (CDCN35NWW or something from 2016/03/29) (in EUFI mode). The latest one, before all BIOS updates in connection with Y700 15ISKi disappeared from the Lenovo sites. I mostly use the latop with an external monitor via HDMI. Sometimes (I could not find a rule when) it starts to display red dots over the screen. If it is 3D graphics it moves along with the texture. You can see screenshots in the link below. The second problem is that the display goes black at random times and then it comes back after a 1-2 seconds. It is like when you change the resolution. The 3rd problem is when the BIOS is in EUFI mode sometimes I get a VGA error 43 in the Windows Device Manager. The system tells me that it had problems with the device and disabled it completely. The solution for this is to reset the BIOS back to factory defaults and reconfigure it to the desired state. This is jus ta workaround because this problem can occur also totally random. I've tested my external display with my other laptop Lenovo T440s with DisplayPort to HDMI converter and the same HDMI cable. Never experienced any problems. Tried Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 64 bit systems and all the Chipset, and VGA drivers which came out since then (provided by both Lenovo and Nvidia). Pictures of the screen:https://1drv.ms/f/s!AmvQYqr8ukT-gYg6a85wd6zmvNESxw Could you help me identify the core of the problem?  Tha...

So I'm planning on buying this model: Lenovo Ideapad Y700-15ISK, but the one I'm looking to buy doesn't have an SSD and doesn't specify which ports are still available, only that it has a 1TB HDD. So I wanted to ask: 1. Does it have a free M.2 port? all models of the Y700-15ISK should have them, or am I wrong? 2. Which type of M.2 SSD does it support? M or B+M? I already sent the same questions to the retailer, but I am still waiting for an answer so thought I'd ask here as well.

I recently bought a M.2 SSD and I want to use it as a cache drive. Intels RST requires AHCI mode, I was under the assumption that I was already in AHCI mode but my inability to create any raid volumes through the disk management or have my drives recognized by the RST app says otherwise. There is no option to change my mode from IDE to AHCI in BIOS due to it being locked. How can I work around this?

A:Lenovo ideapad Y700-15ISK how to put into AHCI

Look in the device manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller, it should say Intel(R) 100 Series/C230 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller. For your second part of your question, you need at least 2 disk with unallocated areas to make a RAID array. But, saying that I would never setup a software RAID (ie windows) array and the BIOS doesnt support a hardware RAID

I recently bought this laptop and I have two problems:1. Especially when the screen is black, there is a green light on the upper part of the screen. I don't know what causes it maybe a led or something is installed badly (it's a 5 cmē area). Should I take it back and ask for a new one?2. This problem is related to scaling. When it is set to 100%, everything is small but crystal clear. When at 150%, everything looks normal but some apps like Steam, BitTorrent... are blurry like they were just zoomed on. Reinstalling windows and drivers should solve this? Simply reinstalling drivers didn't help.Thanks!

I don't know anything about your first problem (it may be a hardware problem), but I do know something about the second. Some programs (Steam, for example) aren't made for high-dpi screens. for these programs that appear blurry, right click on their icon (on the desktop), and click properties. Under the compatibility tab, check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". This should work after you restart the program.

Hi, I am really interested in this laptop especially in variant with i7-6700HQ, so far everything looks pretty much as a dream comes true, but I have one more question. Is Intel VT-D supported? It's huge game changer for me, because I want to be able to run multiple virtualmachines and passthrough nvidia gpu to them. According Intel, VT-D on this cpu is supported, but I can't find any info  support with this motherboard. Thanks

I'm having some lag with my touchpad, about every 3 seconds. Searched around about this problem and did some updates on the driver.
 
Even did a factory reset, but same problem.
 
Anyone having similar problem and fixed it?
Read somewhere that it may have something to do with the Realtek HD audio software/driver??
 
Using external mouse for the most, but would be nice to have the option to use a functional touchpad from time to time.

Hi y70015ISKm2SSD , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
What you can initially try is to disable fast boot under shutdown settings > advanced power options.
 
If same issue continue to disable "allow hybrid sleep" either from same advance power settings or from cmd as administrator using powercfg -h off to disable hibernation if needed.

Just got this laptop 2 months ago via amazon. I am a DJ and use Serato DJ software. I have only played 1 party with the new laptop. I am running windows 7 and windows 10 (difference partitions) Today I decided to build the overviews of my music collection. The software uses all 8 cores (8 songs at a time) to build them. I had the laptop running for about 2 hours. Everything was running fine. I even have the laptop slightly elavated in the back to get extra air flow. All of sudden the laptop shut off. I noticed that the charge light on the front of the laptop was no longer while. Power brick was pretty hot which seems normal for the intense core usage. Called tech support and went through some tech support, have to call back since there database was down. I suspect something on the laptop motherboard or memory etc went toast. This is my first Lenovo laptop ever. I have been a Dell guy for over 10 years, never ever had any hardware issues in 4 other laptops.  What can I expect from Lenovo warranty service? Anyone have any other thoughts on what the heck could have happened. This is probably the most intense I have run the laptop. DJ with the software isn't as intense as building overviews. Think of it as rendering.

Hey guys!! So yeah, I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y700 15ISK laptop. It's a really cool laptop! And it's a monster in gaming! Also, it's new. I had it with me for about 2 months now. I have no negative comments about this laptop. This laptop was my dream laptop. I always take care of it and made sure it is in top condition.  But you see, One day, like 3-4 days ago (sunday), when I got home I turned on my laptop to update my excel table for my expenses, it was bout 90%. After that, I took a nap leaving my laptop still turned on. When I woke up, I saw it was 10% percent. Of course, like any normal person would do, I plugged in the charger. To my suprise, It suddenly turned off by itself right after I plugged in the charger to the wall socket. Thinking that It just got lowbat, it was all right for me. Or so I thought. After that, I noticed that there were no lights that indicate that it is charging in my laptop. Please help!!! It's been 3 or 4 days now and I still can't use it!!! It won't charge, it won't turn on because of the lowbat and I can't fix it.Any ideas?? (i have a background on Electronics Engineering if it matters) i did some analysis. 1.

Hello everyone,
 
yesterday, 9.4.2016, windows update installed update with this name "Lenovo Ltd. driver update for Lenovo System Firmaware V 001". The problem is, that after that, my keyboard started to "stuck" at Mechwarrior game (do not even have to be in game, login screen is enough and if I alt+tab, it is stucking in windows too). Every half a second there is slight pause, whene the pressed key is stucked for a few moments and if no key is pressed, than you cannot press key for a few moments. It is quite annoying. I updated keyboard drivers but to no help. I wanted to uninstall that Lenovo update, but there is not an option to do so, unlikely other windows updates.
 
My question is following, anyone knows, what that update was about? What firmware was updated? In device manager system firmware version is still unchanged for half a year. And I was unable to find anything about it over the internet. Also, since I have no idea what was updated, I cannot revert to older version.
 
Thanks in advance to everyone.

When my laptop is plugged in, I have my power-saver setting set so that the display turns off in 15 minutes. When I return to my desk and hit any key, move the mouse, or whatever, it takes anywhere from 6 to 10 or 12 seconds for the display to turn on again. Is this normal? The display on my prior Lenovo (G580) would turn on instantaneously, so I was surprised that it's been taking so long on my new laptop. Thank you.

Single clicking with my external mouse works fine -- except for in one particular program. But it's not an issue with the program, because if I use the touchpad buttons, single click works fine. And it's not the mouse, because I've tried three different mice, all with the same result. Even when a Lenovo tech rep took over my computer and single clicked within that program, it didn't work until he clicked several times. I've talked to several other people (including tech support for the program), and no one else is having this issue. Has anyone else seen this? Thanks in advance....

I can confirm the fps drops are not caused by any of the drivers, Intel or Nvidia's, I've reinstalled and completely renewed both drivers, no changes.Particular examples:-chrome starts fine, horrible slowing down after a few minutes-Civilization 6: went from 40~60 fps to 10~20 fps (unplayable)-World of Warcraft:Legion from 50~80fps to 20~40fps (spikes up to 60)-MS Visual Studio 2015 extremely long loading and start up times, frequent crashes, freezes and debug applications running horribly on this computer, that run fine on my older Lenovo laptop from 4 years ago!What I've tried:-Reinstalling the BIOS, did nothing-Reinstalling video drivers, did nothing (both NVidia and Intel)-Reinstalling most of the drivers including audio, chipset, ...

Hi allI have a 700 15ISK laptop, with default E5CN19WW bios revision. When i have upgraded the bios to newer E5CN51WW revision the WLAN ceased to work. The deviceshows allright into the device manager, the WLAN icon shows into the tray but NO DETECTION OF ANY WLAN AT ALL. This bad issue is verified with default Windows 10 home edition in full UEFI mode and withwindws 7-64 in full legacy mode. When i have reverted bios to the E5CN19WW revision the issue was not verified. eg : the WLAN woks allright. note that my laptop has the realtek 8821AE  WLAN not the intel one.  Some one can explain me what's going wrong with E5CN51WW bios ? kind regards

Hello Lenovo, I recently bought ( Aug-2016 ) a Lenovo Y700 15.6" laptop with the 16 GB variant. When I opened the laptop and started the windows, the first thing I noticed that, the screen is dimmer on the right side and bright on the left side. It is not easy noticeable but it bothers me a lot sometimes when the screen is completely WHITE. Only then it is easy to identify the brightness issue. I am not sure if this is how backlit LED IPS panels work, but will be happy if anyone from Lenovo can clarify it.  The brightness just fades from centre to the right side of the screen, but the fade is very minute it is not easily captured on the pic to share. My query is, should I be bothered ? Should I get Lenovo team to check it ? Or is it anyother way to reproduce the issue in a better way to take a decision as to ask for support ? Awaiting your inputs.

A:Lenovo y700 keyboard not waking laptop from sleep

I had similar issues with sleep mode and waking up.  Eventually my Y700 stopped working completely and wouldn't wake up from sleep (black screen of death, no Lenovo logo, no startup).  Had to send it back and they're saying it could be the motherboard.  Will have to wait some weeks before I see it again.  Come on Lenovo...

HELLO WORLD .  I usually update BIOS and so on at here   (http://support.lenovo.com/kr/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/IdeaPad-Y-Series-laptops/y700-15isk?ta...) Whenever I update BIOS, I had to open back panel and get rid of SSD (Samsung 950 Pro 256GB) to get into the BIOS settings, then I changed boot mode Legacy Support into UEFI and after I change Legacy to UEFI, I insert my SSD back and boot. And I could check that my laptop's BIOS is updated.  BUT ! Do I have to open back panel with a driver and remove SSD and re-setting boot mode and put SSD back and close the panel ? Is everyone doing what I've done ? it's very tedious and tiresome work to do. Whenever I want to update BIOS, I need a driver to open back and put SSD out and vice versa.    Is there a method to update BIOS update without opening back panel ? Please, Help ME !!!  (I'm using Windows 10 Pro 64 bits)?

Evening. I have purchased the Lenovo Y700-15ISK and having installed CS GO I am experiencing FPS spikes every 5-10 minutes of gameplay. At first I believed it was down to the GPU temperature reaching the throttle limit of 67 degrees but after further tests I have played for 1 hour+ and the temperature has not gone above 60 degrees. These spikes happen as soon as I enter the game even if the laptop has only just been turned on so I don't believe it is temperature related. I have the max processor state at 99% to eliminate turbo and it does not make any difference if I have the graphics settings on high or low. Any ideas or help would be appreciated as I seem to have hit a brick wall. Thanks in advance. Chris Keegan.

A:32 GB Ram on Ideapad Y700-15ISK ?

Hi basitj  , 
 
 
Greetings . 
 
I was also waiting for other members to try going beyond 16 GB on this model.  
So far,  was not able to get a verified working upgrade on this model most likely since it was just released in the market and that it is using DDR4 already.  
 
Seen models that worked from beyond recommended RAM from OEM since memory controller of processor usually exceed whole system max ram. This is due to systemboard limitation and firmware identification set by OEM. 
 
If you can have your company IT group test it or have computer shop to try going beyong 16 GBDDR4 then it's the only time we can decide . 
 
Update us if possible , it would be a good reference for our community. 
 
 
Regards

Just ran a calibration of the display using Calman RGB last night and have to say that I am a little disappointed.  The grayscale calibration worked well and I ended up with under .5% error but the color was way off out of the box and for some reason the Calman software could not make any significant improvement to the primary and seconday colors.  Initial color error was almost 9%... a very noticable flaw in color reproduction.  Calman did manage to improve other color points to get the overall color error to about 3% but, if just measuring the primaries and secondaries, the error appears to be in the 7% to 8% range. Curious if anyone else has tried calibrating their Y700 and managed to achieve better results ? Also curious what others think about the mod to remove the anti-glare film ?  I don't like it.  It actually creates a haze under direct sunlight.  And I wonder if the anti-glare film is messing with the color.

The antiglare really does impact clarity. I'm not sure if colors are affected by it, but reason seams to think yes to some extent.

Hello,  I need to power my Y700 15ISK using DC Power.  I cannot find a Lenovo DC power supply so now I am looking for an DC AC inverter.  The AC power supply says 20V 6.75A. Has anyone used a 12V inverter with the Y700?  How do select one that will provide enough power?  Thanks

I am experiencing a display error every time that I boot up my new laptop from sleep or being off.  It looks like there are boxes all over the screen (attached).  Oddly, it goes away after a few seconds of use. I updated my video driver, but the issue persists.  I am not extraordinarily tech savvy, but please let me know if there's anything else that I can try before taking it in to a service center. Thanks!

A:Y700-15ISK - Slow Performance, Need help

Was that Win 10 via onekey. Regardless, check and apply the latest driver and utilities from downloads.Windows 10 will optimize fast boot startup after several shutdown and restart cycles. No doubt there are also outstanding Windows Updates as well which will take a long time to install and catch up to the current releases.
