Brand new laptop. Model is Lenovo Ideapad 110-15ACL, Windows10 Home.Pressing keyboard?s LEFT hand side shift key button automatically produces characters 48TY] in MS Word document.

Hi, I am going to buy a used Lenovo IdeaPad Y700 15.6". The modelnr is 80NV00JWMX It has the following spesifications: Intel Core i5-6300HQ, Nvidia GTX 960M 2GB, 8 GB DDR4 RAM, 1 TB HDD (maybe a 8 GB flash drive). I have never owned a Lenovo, just several other brands. Will it be possible to upgrade this model with a SSD, and still have the 1 TB HDD? I am thinking of a M.2 Solid State Drive.  I am going to pick up the Lenovo later today. I just wanted to clarify this before I am picking it up.

Hello, I have pets in the house and I just bought the laptop about a month ago. I was using it then I decided to clean it from outside because it got fingerprints all over it. When I flipped the laptop I was surprised by the huge amounts of pet hair piling up on the fan. It never crossed my mind that this would happen. I want to know if the fan is supported by a dust filter mesh? And is it possible that the hair got through to the components inside? Should I haved checked and cleaned from the inside? Thanks in advance,Mohamed

For your infomation:  7 April 2016   Amazon price $1,194.99      Lenovo website does not specify what type of hard drive it comes with weither it is 2.5 ssd or M.2 ssd.  I did call Lenovo prior to purchasing my computer to ask what type of drive it came with the sales staff told me it was a 2.5 inch ssd which turns out to be wrong.   This laptop comes with a 500 GB M.2 ssd.  It does not include the cable for the second hard drive,    Your choice of 2.5 hd or 2.5 ssd.        As of yet you cannot purchase the cable thru Lenovo parts department.    The cable can be gotten thru AliExpress for around $49.00 (which does not include the hard drive caddy).  Encompass also sales the cable but as of this time is back ordered to July 2016  at a price of $10 plus shipping.  aslo does not come with the hard drive caddy.      My computer had a bug when using it,  windows exprorer service stopped working and I had to go to the task manager to restart the service.  But after I went to windows update and downloaded the lastest updates this bug did not show up again.  The best i can guess is not the fault of Lenovo.          The hard drive is partitioned into 5 drives which include boot, driver back-up, one button recovery and two additional Lenovo reserved ...

Hello, My laptop configuration:OS: Windows 10 64 bits (up-to-date)Model : Lenovo Ideapad Y700 15ISK (80NV)BIOS : CDCN37WW Five days ago the keyboard suddenly stopped to respond (nb : the Num Lock led remained on). I tried to restart Windows but since it could not (stucked on the reboot screen) I pressed the power button and heard a "clack" sound.When I restarted the computer the hard drive made some noices and the fans started to turn at high speed for ~3 seconds.NB : I upgraded to bios CDCN35WW few days before. After the incident I updated to CDCN37WW.  Today the problem happened again (keyboard not responding). Before trying to reboot I unpluged and pluged back my mouse (Lenovo gaming mouse). As I expected, it did not function once I pluged it back. I tried to log out before rebooting.At that time Windows crashed and I saw the BSOD for 1 second before the computer shut down and reboot showing the Novo Button Menu (the keyboard was still not responding at this time).I rebooted by pressing the power button, once again some worrysome electrical noices while I was doing so.The computer restarted and once again noices from the hard drive + fans at full speed. Any suggestion ? Are BIOS updates bugged ?Thanks in advance for any help.

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'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.

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.

how to install windows 7 on this.  Here's what i've done: I've used both the Windows 7 DVD and i created a bootable USB wiith it (UEFI Boot).  They work. I disabled the  security in the bios, so i could work with UEFI, but when i boot the machine with either, the windows 7 loading screen happens, then it freezes on the Starting Windows animated logo.  I can get no further. When i set the bios to boot in legacy mode it gets past that part, but then asks me for a driver.   I've downloaded all of the windows 7 64 bit drivers on the Y700-15ISK driver page, but none of them seem to be the driver that windows is looking for. Right now i'm a little at the end of my rope on this.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hello everybody! I am interested in buying the new Gaming Laptop Lenovo ideapad Y700-15ACZ in the TOP version with FX-8800P and 4GB R9-M385X. As I have seen, first offers come only having the 1TB WD slim hdd. So time to find out which will be the best M.2 SSD to add nearby. For this need to clarify first if the M.2 port is connected to the SATA III of the FX-8800P's internal southbridge only or if it has connection to PCIe lanes. The HMM https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_y700-15acz_hmm_201508.pdf tells on page 26 there is PCI Express Gen3 and SATA Gen3. For the hdd is written SATA III as note and for the ssd it is NGFF which means the same like you write M.2, so it is unclear. Btw - there are NO DDR4 ports on that model yet. On page 64 you find some oem M.2 ssd models that Lenovo offers to add. Those are SATA3 models like LiteOn CV-1 and Samsung PM871 with keys for "B+M". But this also doesn't mean anything more than might be badder choices. Have a look at the mainboard on page 48. You can see that the M.2 connector has only key M (right side) which means PCIe 3.0 (cpu) + SATA whereas key B (left side) would mean PCIe 2.0 (southbridge) + SATA. That M key port would allow to put in ssd cards like the Samsung SM951MZ-HPV (AHCI) model which might be the fastest using AHCI+PCIe or even the newest model Samsung SSD 950 pro which uses PCIe 3.0+NVMe only. But if there exists only a SATA III connection, the key should be "B only" instea... Read more

In the follwoing news is written ... (up to support PCIE NGFF interface 512G SSD) http://www.hea.cn/2015/0909/230546.shtml . Can someone confirm this means PCIe 3.0 with 4 lanes like the M.2 port with M key is looking?

Hello all, I purchased a Lenovo Ideapad Y700-17ISK part # 80Q00011US, and according to case manager assigned to my case, 100 days ago. The notebook was mis-represented by a sales rep, and when I got the machine and it didn't have the second hard drive bay in rear of machine, which I was told the 80Q00011US had. The machine also had a mild display issue, but rather than report it and spend 2+ weeks without a machine, I ignore the issue. It didn't affect daily usage anyways. So 10 days ago, the machine dies during a reboot. Seems the MB fried. I have been fighting and waiting (mostly waiting) for over a week for a case manager (Crystal) to contact me, which finally happen @ 7:30 AM PST yesterday. The case manager was not customer friendly, refused the replacement or refund options I requested, stated they would ONLY repair the system. Her cause for "rejecting" those options was because I didn't report the display issue in the first 30 days (I have enough exp. (35 Yrs.) in computers to know a bad spot in display is NOT going to fried a MB). Conservation got heated. I refuse the repair option because I know what they will do is replace MB & Display, and return other parts back to the machine (parts that very well could have been damaged when MB died, leaving me with a US$1,300 refurbished machine). I then requested to speak with her supervisor since I was tired of being BS-ed, only for her to claim there was no-one higher to speak to, and her actually hang... Read more

Greetings! I recently bought a new laptop, Lenovo IdeaPad Y700 15-ISK, with Windows 10 Home preloaded. I found a minor problem that happens frequently. After the laptop is idled for a period of time, 5 or 10 mins depending on plugged in or not as you know, the laptop first turns off display, then goes into sleep mode after another 5 or 10 mins. The problem is, after I come back and try to turn it back on, the screen stays black. However, I can see that the laptop is indeed responding by pressing NumLock, CapLock, or in my case, Fn-Space to turn on/off the backlight of keyboard. I checked and I have the latest windows updates and latest drivers for everything. So, any brilliant idea on this issue? Thanks in advanced.

Hi, I bought my Ideapad Y700 in December 2015, so it's half year old. Warranty is 2 years after entering S/N on Lenovo website. Please only reply to this if you are form Lenovo support. Question: Will opening back lid of the laptop to check for connection between screen and rest of the laptop void my warranty ? I suspect it's a cable that got lose, but I would like to be sure if it's worth even checking. Is it ok to open screws to have a look inside or will that void my warranty ? Additional information: Screen blinks even when booting, before operating system and also in BIOS. So it really looks like hardware problem.

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!!!

I'm using an HP DV6663CL laptop; it's only a few months old. For the most part it works great, except the left shift key on the keyboard feels strange. It's as if it's loose, and it seems as if it "grinds" against something when pressed - it works as it should, but the feeling si very disconcerting. I've tried blowing it out with canned air, but no dice.

Anyone have any idea what this is, or if it's possible to remove the key to check without risking damage to the keyboard like on other laptops?
 

A:Shift key on keyboard feels loose/grinds?

I had a similar problem and I poped the key off and inspected the key and below and cleaned it all out, worked great after. Be carefull poping the key off try to use a small flat head or butter knife to get under the key and pull it up You will see a little mechanism and a rubber button. If the button feels stiff when you press it down then the KB itself is bad. If its fine check the metal device, clean it and make sure it moves free. It should just pop right back on.

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.

My Y700 is less than 2-month old. Recently, I was facing the following issue. I am able to repeat the issue by only boot up the laptop and leave it without running any other applications. 1. First, the keyboard becomes non-responsive after sometime. At this point, the mouse from touch pad still works, and I can continue the applications (if any) I already started. However, trying to launch any new application, even as simple as "cmd" or "taskmgr" will fail. 2. Some time later, the laptop totally freezes. Sometimes, it will reboot and enter the "Nova button mode" - but still, the keyboard freezes and I can't select any other options (once I tried to attach an external USB keyboard before it freezes, then in the Nova button mode, the external keyboard works, but any option, "normal boot", "recovery mode", or whatever, simply fails and hangs). Sometimes, it simply hangs. In both cases, the only thing I can do is keep pressing the power button to force shut down. This is really annoying. Anybody has similar experience? Any solution? (I could try factory restore, but come on...it is only 2-month old!)

I just received my IdeaPad Y700, unboxed it, and plugged it in. Now it should be fine considering I literally just pulled it from the box, but no. I power it up and the screen does not turn on. There's also a weird clicking noise heard from the right hand corner. I research online that letting the battery die before restarting it could possibly fix this issue, so I do that. I give it some time to rest before plugging it back in and restarting it. Again, black screen. Now after this, I decide to just power it off look for a support number.The laptop keeps powering back on. No matter how many times I power this off, it keeps restarting itself. I've resolved to just letting the battery drain. Anyone else have this issue or anyway to resolve this?

If someone can please help me with this. the sound on my laptop is not working when I plug my headphones in the headphone jack. My laptop is working perfectly fine, the speakers on the laptop also work perfectly fine. The problem is when I plug in my headphones (apple earphones, the regular ones that come with the iPhone) there's no sound. The earphones work perfectly as I've tried them on other devices.

I recently picked up this laptop and personally prefer to use the microphone attached to my headset for voice recording rather than the one built into the laptop. I've got a a splitter to handle the combo jack on the headset. However the laptop doesn't seem to recognize the microphone and can't set it as a default device in the audio settings. I just picked up this laptop less than a week ago though so its possible I could be missing something that should be blantantly obvious. For reference the adapter and combo jack headset worked just fine on my previous device, which was a Microsoft Surface. Any help is appreciated!

I ordered a Lenovo IdeaPad y700 on Sept. 12th thinking it would be shipping out within a day or two (as advertised on the website). However, when the order finally went through and I checked the status, it says that my unit will be shipping out on October 10th (nearly a month after the initial purchase) and won't arrived until a week after that (Oct. 17th).Is this information accurate? I made the purchase due to my personal liking for the unit however, since I need it for my studies/recreation, I would like to have it sooner than a month from now as I am virtually without a computer until this arrives. I don't even understand how it's possible to take that long to ship a unit which comes stock with no modifications at all.If everything I've read on the order status is correct, I would prefer to just cancel my order and obtain the unit (or another similar unit) through  another avenue, because waiting a month from now for a stock laptop in 2016 is absolutely absurd. If anyone has any information that could help or has been through this run around before, I'd appreciate any assistance. Thanks in advance. Also if this is posted in the wrong section/forum, I'd gladly post it elsewhere upon request.

Those are caused by the CPU that throttles down to 1,4 GHz for a few seconds and thus makes the game unplayable. No tools i checked would show the CPU temps so it is hard to say what the cause is. The GPU reaches 85 degree max. and this seems to be the point where the system starts to throttle and even GPU clock speeds are lower than they should (700 - 900 MHz)." I Would love to use this laptop to game on as it does give good proformance but as the cooling setup doesnt not seem up to the task.  Also this is what Im seeing.  I have yet to see the r9m385x run at 1000mhz ever and the memory is always at 1200mhz not the 1500mhz amd says it can be used at.  I really dont understand how this product can come out with such heat issues.

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

Hi Swirl,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
What solved the problem for me was to go to "device manager" -> "system devices", locate "Synaptics SMB Driver", and either disable it or delete it. The touchpad two-finger-tap should then immediately start working. 
 
Also,

While playing GPU intensive games I had the feeling that the laptop does not reach its full capabilities.Even while using the recommended GPU settings by NVIDIA for the respective game, the games felt a bit sluggish.So I ran some benchmarks using the program Furmark. It looks like the laptop is programmed to throttle the GPU once the temperature reaches 65-67 °C.Can this be possible? This kinda sucks. I didn't pay for high end hardware just to have it throttled by my system's BIOS or whatever causes this.Moreover the fans don't always seem to run at full capacity before the temperature throttling kicks in.It also does not seem possible to control or monitor the fan speed by a third party program like MSI Afterburner. If this is supposed to be a laptop for gamers it kind of missed the mark here.

Make sure you don't have any power saving features turned on, I know Lenovo has a bunch of Power Management software installed by default. Are you using "Power Saver" power plan in Windows by any chance? I can max out the overclock in Afterburner and game for hours on end at 1337 MHz core, so I'm not having any throttling issues. However I did do a clean install of Windows so I have no Lenovo software running on mine.

In my first post i posted about y700ACZ throttle. it was very serious throttle from 3.4ghz to 1.3ghz while playing games. To FIX this follow my words. 1.Its not the gpu or the apu that is throttling nor any other hardware flaw. 2.Its the AIR intake vent. TO [email protected] remove the hood and look upside down there you will see a cloth like fiber cloth covering the vent THATS the main reason of throttling. 3.remove the cloth carefully leave it open and run any of your game.look  at the cpu in task manager 4. i played assassin creed syndicate for 1 hour and was no throttle even the gpu temperature was @60-65c 5.there are some lag in games though which is barely seen but what i think is its bcuz of 15w TDP !! but thats ok not an issue 6.ALSO I RUN HEAVEN BENCHMARK AND @EXTREME SETTINGS I GOT MIN 20FPS AND MAX 45FPS 7.BUT FIRST OF ALL DO CLEAN THE FANS AND ALL OTHER PARTS. SO CONCLUSION THE MAIN CAUSE IS THE DESIGN FLAW AND ITS LENOVO'S FAULT NOT AMD SO AMD !!ROCKS!!

So I was trying to chance some settings on my y700 but turns out the ideapads don't have any options to change in BIOS. The only things I found in there are turning wifi on/off, swichable graphics and a few other things that I'm not interested in. And I've dug a bit on the internet and turns out that's normal, which makes very little sense. As far as I know, all computers have BIOS settings in the BIOS (makes sense, right?). So, why do the lenovo laptops (not including think products) not have that? And is there any way to access BIOS settings (including flashing a modded BIOS)? Here's what I mean:? ?

I have been experiencing an occasional Blue Screen crash for quite some time now, although it has recently become more frequent. The symptoms for the crash are extremely consistent: - The keyboard stops responding to any commands. (The background lighting stays on, but any button presses are not registered.) - On many occasions, the USB ports lose power and any devices connected to them will disconnect. Aside from these issues, the computer appears to behave normally and can be used for even several minutes before the Blue Screen occurs. - I have attempted to start up the Lenovo solutions center and perform a hardware scan when it is in this state, but the Blue Screen always occurs quickly after the program is loaded. - Restarting the computer, plugging and unplugging the adapter have no effect. In order to resolve the issue, I must hold the power button down and force shut down, at which point the computer starts up normally and keyboard/USB ports work as if nothing happened. There seem to be a large number of related topics, but I am not seeing any that have a solution posted that works. I have updated Windows 10, all my drivers are up to date, and the bios is updated. - Nikita

Good Evening,I've reviewed the previous threads and have not seen a concise answer to this question; which m.2 SSDs are compatable with the Y700-14ISK Lenovo Ideapad? I've got the stock 5400 500GB HDD in there now and am keen on upgrading it right away with an SSD in either 2.5" or m.2 configuration.I've referenced the HMM and am torn between either going to the Samsung Evo 850 (Sata III) or the Samsung SM951 (PCIe) based. Been reading about the pros and cons of going from PM851 to SM951 and the cost difference, and performance difference, sounds impressive. Would really appreciate some guidance if any prior customers have successfully installed either of these m.2 models in their Y700-14ISK ideapads and if it's difficult to clone the existing HDD to the blank m.2 (remember, this version of the Y700-14ISK does not have an optical drive). Many thanks for your time and consideration,Mongoose

Hello and welcome,
 
It may be that nothing is wrong.  You laptop may have an "always-on" USB port that can be used for charging external devices.
 
You might try using another port, or checking BIOS to see if there's an option to turn off that feature.
 
I'm having trouble finding documentation that addresses this, so the above is just a guess.

Hi. I have this laptop Y700 -17ISK for one month and I am very disappointed. After reading 100 forums and loosing 10 days I succeed install Windows 7 Pro -64bit on this laptop.Now I have big problems with Intel HD graphics. After installation I restart my laptop I obtain black screen and I need to restore my windows to previous restore point to make windows start again. I use last drivers from Lenovo site and last drivers from Intel site (and old versions) but I have same issue.I succeed install driver win64_154014.4352 but when I install Nvidia VGA Driver for Windows 7 (64-bit) I have again black screen.I don?t know what to do anymore. When I install windows 10 home edition everything went well for one week. After one week I connect laptop to internet and windows 10 start automatic update.  After update black screens 2-3 / hour and after some time bleak screen come so fast that windows not even start anymore.This laptop has any software support?

Hello, I need help on my Lenovo Companion app with it's dust removal option. I just bought my Lenovo ideapad 700 for a week now. Previously I had the dust removal option in the Lenovo Quick Optimizer widget on taskbar. After I turned it on, the option never existed anymore in the quick widget and even in Lenovo Companion app itself. Would really love to see this feature again in my new laptop.

Am using a Y700-15ISK Core i7 with a 960MThe problem is... the CPU core temp reaches 100 Degrees in any game, but the FAN speed remains normal.Now... i know a lot of people complained about the loud FAN noise, but i dont seem to have it at all.So a BIOS FAN control Would be nice to have, or a windows based will also do.With 3 Modes. Quite - Normal - Agressive. Who Do i contact to request the feature?Thank you.
