MTM 59418309 returns Yoga 2 13 (not Yoga 2 Pro)

Q: MTM 59418309 returns Yoga 2 13 (not Yoga 2 Pro)

The MTM 59418309 is for a Yoga 2 Pro. In support, it and my serial number are showing Yoga 2 13. The drivers for the Yoga 2 13 (like BIOS) are returned... Is this a problem? Should I be using the Yoga 2 Pro BIOS or the Yoga 2 13 BIOS which is coming up. The sticker on the bottom says Yoga 2 Pro.Model 20266MTM 59418309

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!

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...

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

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

I've had a Yoga 2 Pro for two and a half years. I recently overheated it. I replaced it with a Yoga 900. After six days the screen cracked (working with Best Buy now to get an exchange but hopes are slim...). In the likely event that BB does not cooperate, is it possible to take the screen out of my Yoga 2 Pro and use it to replace the screen in the Yoga 900? Thanks for any insights.

I am hhaving difficulty finding an acceptable scaling mix between resolution, system scaling, and edge scaling. At 1080p, 125%, 125%, os navigation is mostly fine, but edge text is way too large. At 1080p, 125%, 100%, edge text is way too small. At all combinations text is inflated (but crisp) in certain elements while fuzzy in others. What scaling combinations work best for you?

Right out of the box, my Yoga 2 Pro had one major flaw: the fan is really loud and it's pretty much always on. Right now I'm using only Firefox and my CPU is running at 55C, my CPU usage is at 1% - 5%, and my fan sounds like a bicycle with a baseball card stuck in the spokes.  I can hear it over a pretty loud TV in my living room.  If I close the lid, then it turns off. From what I'm reading on these forums, this can't be normal.  I downloaded NoteBook FanControl and that works sometimes but not always. Any advice?

Hi I have a USB-C to DisplayPort converter cable to connect my Yoga 900 to an HP Envy 32 with a resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels. It normally works reasonably well, except for two things: (1) It usually takes three or four connections (pulling USB-C connector in and out) until the monitor is recorgnized and (2) it flickers from time to time. Hopefully, this is an issue with the cheap cable and not the expensive computer or monitor! Now, the USB-C port is spec'ed as having native display port 1.2 video output. Does this mean that I should be able to use a simple cable without a protruding converter as the one in the link below or do I absolutely need a converter? Does the Yoga 900 comply with Alternative Mode DisplayPort? Are there any recommended cables? I didn't check the Lenovo shop in a while, but there was nothing like this when I last looked. USB-C to DisplayPort 1,8 m cable: https://www.amazon.es/Cable-adaptador-Plugable-USB-C-DisplayPort/dp/B01EXKDRAC/ref=sr_1_29?s=electro... This one's a little long for my configuration. A 100 cm cable would be enough. Thanks!    -Philippe Gibelin

Hi All, 
 
I see this has been mentioned once before, but there doesnt seem to be any clear answer.
 
Basically the gpu on  my Yoga 3 11, is stuck at 0.48 Ghz 99% of the time, leaving the laptop more or less useless!
 
See image below.
 
Very occasionally it will get un stuck and run like a dream, ive been hoping a bios update would fix it and to be honest after an update it did seem to run un restricted for a short while. When i say it runs like a dream, its shows up at around 1.9Ghz on the Task Manager/Performance screen.
 
Its not being restricted by my power plan option (as far as i know), I usually run it on High Power setting, I have gone through the power Options and not noticed anything strange,
 
BEing either plugged in or not, doesnt make any difference.
 
I haven't noticed any pattern as to the reason why the CPU is very rarely unrestricted.
 
I have included a few pictures below and im happy to supply any other info which may help diagnosis.
 
As i say the laptop in its current state, is basically useless and only just about manages to surf the internet.
If i dont find a solution soon, i have no choice but to take it back.
 
Thanks alot in advance for you help!

just ordered my "loaded" P40 and plan to test it against a Surface Pro 4 i7. I bet the decision of which one to keep will come down to screen quality (Surface Pro) vs keyboard quality and hopefully better thermal design (P40). my usual testing involves doing a semi-complex filtered render video in Premiere. In thin laptops whenever the GPU kicks in, the computer under powers the CPU to keep temperature down. hopefully P40 handles it well. I draw some comfort there are very few P40 posts here.  As a side note, I think lenovo could improve their website sale process a lot; ordering a "topseller" or suggested confg and have to wait 3-5 business days for shipment seems excessive. Microsoft, Apple and many other offer next business day.

No, it's not the only way. The Yoga 900 supports connections made to wireless displays as well. It should also support a USB to HDMI adaptor.
 
I've got a Lenovo USB 3.0 to DVI Adaptor, and that works fine with the Yoga 900.

Having problems with my Yoga 2 pro. When asked to automatically find my laptop the message says "cannot identify". So I manually put in the mod and serial number then click on support and this message comes up "Error Code : 4fbfcb2595d54b9d3c9b368d0d93af5f"I am trying to put my computer back to factory standards and work from there but I am unable to figure out how to do it. Got to a place where it says if having trouble upgrading to win 10 click here. Upgrades are available but when I click on an upgrade it says my laptop is not qualified to be upgraded. One other thing, is my laptop capable of having a graphics card installed? If so which card would someone recommend.

A photo colleague dumped his Chromebook on my lap (gratis) with some !@#$ 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.

My client has ended up with three Yoga 500s with broken screens which they've asked me to see can be repaired. They are out of warranty and don't have any kind of accidental damage insurance - I've suggested they do look at this as they seem rather clumsy recently :-) But a simple question - does Lenovo offer an out of warranty repair service in the UK? Secondary question - any recommendations for 3rd party repair services? I guess it will be a relatively easy repair that I could do myself but hardest part is finding the part number and a supplier of parts. Thanks, Rob.

Hi, I have 3 problems with my Yoga 460: 1. (this should be easy):Where do I get a backup image for my system from? I did not find any links on the support page. 2. I tried to download the bios update to version 1.18 from the website. If I click on the windows installer file, there is always the message "file not found". If I try to download the iso file (which is indeed working), I receive an error message about wrong format when trying to mount it to a usb drive. 3. This is the most important issue for me at the moment:As soon as I try to update my system with Lenovo Companion software, I always get the message that I would have to upgrade my Lenovo System Interface Driver. If I hit ok to install this app, I get a download link. I tried installing it several times. After having restarted the system, the same error appears again (with the same download link).  I would really appreciate if anyone of you could help me on these topics! Greetings from Germany, Simon

My S5 Yoga 15 won't turn on When I press and hold the power button, the red light comes on only after I let go of the power button, and it stays on for only 5 seconds.Screen never illuminates, fan doesn't twitch or move. I've reseated all cables, tried removing RAM, moving the sticks around. Even with RAM removed, the thinkpad does the same behavior. Pressing the tact switch only seems to reset the system. I've removed the CMOS battery and main battery to reset the CMOS settings. And that doesn't work either. The notebook is just over a year old.

Can't figure this out for the life of me... One of the cooling fans in my yoga 2 pro was running extremely loudly. Thinking this would be an easy diy fix, i ordered a new fan, opened it up, and replaced it. But now, neither of the two fans are spinning when I start the computer. The machine boots up fine, but without a cooling system I am afraid to use it for an extended period of time. I can't get any software to recognize the fans.... most confusing, if I put the old fan back in, it does not solve the issue. not really sure how I could have messed things up, any ideas?

Is there a repair guide out there for broken power buttons. We have a large deployment of Chromebooks at my organization (3000+) we have noticed that a number of them have broken power buttons on the right side. This can go unnoticed on a chromebook since startup can be done through opening the cover. On screen there are at least 2 options for powering down the device. Occasionally the power button has to be held in order to power down the device. This is when we find the power button to be mushy or soft. Upon opening the chromebook we find that the bracket that holds the power button has become separated from the motherboard. Or in extreme cases the board is cracked at the edge. Has Lenovo addressed this problem? Seems like a fix to re-enforce the bracket would be in order. Currently the fix is to get an entire system board replacement. Anyone have any input or have you seen this problem too?

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.

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 all, I have a lenovo yoga 3 14 (bought in 2015) which has always been suffering from very loud fan noise when just browsing or even on sleep mode.

And do we know if Lenovo is still working on some type of BIOS update because up to now I have installed all of their BIOS updates, but  the  problem never went away. P.S.

Has anyone else had this problem? Returning a computer is a huge pain so I dont' want to do this just in case.  Only want to return it if something is indeed wrong with it.   

A:Yoga 900 - fan noise

I hear the fan kicking on when I'm playing games or rendering videos, otherwise, its basically silent. Also when charging, I hear it kick on. Check your background processes, might have something running. Also, make sure you're not on high performance mode.

I had the lenovo yoga 900 for about three weeks, I have the 13isk2 model, with Intel graphics "540".I downloaded Asphalt 8 from the windows store, now when I play the game, the fan keeps on going for as long as I play, last night I played for about an hour, the fan didn't stop for a single second, hot air coming out of the machine constantly.Now when I'm not playing a game, the fan doesn't come on that often, but asphalt 8 is a low graphics light game, is it normal that the fan keeps working for more than an hour non-stop ?

Hello,I've successfully replaced the 8 gb M2 with a 256 gb unit which has Win 8.1 on it. The laptop works beautifully but (in an effort to have Microsoft stop reminding me to upgrade) I can't seem to upgrade to Win 10. I keep getting error msg: You can't install windows 10 on a USB flash drive using Setup". Does anyone know a way around this? Is there a way to upgrade or (I prefer) do a clean install with the OS on the M2 disc?Thank you,John

A:Yoga 14: M2 is Bootable with Win 8.1 but CANNOT Up...

Try this Windows Registy tweak and see if the change allows you to install without an error. Right-click on Start > RunIn the Run window type: regedit  and presss enterNavigage to the following key   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ControlWith Control highlighted in the left pane; in the right pane search for a value called "PortableOperatingSystem", and if it exists, double click on it and change its value to 0Reboot and retry your upgrdade.Good Luck

After 2 months, checked mulitiple reviews and feedbacks, I bought the X1 yoga to replace my X230 (yeah?) Apperance-wise , I can't complain, really, this is exactly what I'm looking for. battery life ain't bad, with comfortable setting, I have roughly 9 hrs (OMG!) With/without external power, I ran the FFXIV benchmark, the score isn't bad as well. So why I start this post? because the SSD, somehow , I can feel the system is lagging because some whatever reason, and I use my laptop to do still image raw editing ... from the point import the files to the laptop, I can see the transfer rate is only about 60MB/s (at home my primary system, can do minimum 130~140MB/s, with same card reader attach to USB3.0) So what happened ? such great laptop came with a crappy SSD ? looked up online, this SSD with write speed up to 140MB/s ? WTH ? I thought 100~140MB/s are the speed for those aged 7.2k rpm traditional HDD ? Well, should I be glad I only order the 128GB module, because the built your own charge $300~400 for 500GB SSD upgrade, and I just bought one from Crucial , the MX200 500GB M.2 2280 cost $150 ? (and with 3 years warranty) I can't blame the whole laptop, but Lenovo should pick a better parts , especially storage is quite important as part of this laptop, isn't it ? thanks
