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.

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

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.

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'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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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!!!

So I had the issue where the screen would flicker incessantly, I booted into Safe Mode, unsintalled the graphics drivers and all that ended.  However, Windows Update downloaded an update to the graphics card, which consistently failed to install.  This would also cause the laptop to reboot, and start the whole process over again (after about half an hour).  I tried to bypass Windows Update and go right to the device manager and update the driver there.  Windows did download drivers and I believe the system again rebooted while installing them.  Now when I boot up, I see the Lenovo Logo, then the swirling circle of dots (after the Lenovo logo disappears) just swirls constantly.  I can not reach Windows at all to go back into Safe Mode even.

Hello,I'd like to ask, if any of Y700 user faced same or similar problem, with orange/yellowish shade/tint on the screen?Problem started 3 months ago, it was a really hot weather outside, computer was working fine, and then after a few moments it appeard. I doub't that it was me, who damaged a screen, because i'm really gentle, when using it.I bought a notebook at the beginning of this year. It is still on a warranty. I already tried send on a warranty to a serivce for repair ( i think, company is called MEDION (at least for lenovo devices bought in Poland), but they send it back, with a reason that "they couldn't achive same problem in their test enviroment" which is really strange, because problem appears everytime notebook is working. Any suggestion what i can do? Should i send it back again on the warranty, hoping that this time, they will be able to see a defect? What was the root cause of a problem? I don't won't to leave it like that, because notebook wasn't cheap, and except a screen issue, notebook is amazing. But it is really hard and annoying to use it like that.Attached screens, look at the bottom right corner. Orange shade is most intense in this place.

Hi,it's my first post here, so please don't shout at me. I've looked on the forum and I've found that there were more people with this problem. I looked on the solution, but they didn't solved my problem. Under this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rK7n2SJIDzU line is fully visible. Vsync option was on in the game as well as in the nVidia control panel. I've seen this line in more games, but in this one it always appears. When screenshot is taken, there is no line on it, so it's not badly drawn frame. Should I send it in for repairs under warranty? Thank you for any help.

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.

Hello guys, i recently bought a Lenovo Y-50 and i have a problem.

The screen "flickers" quite alot. This means: black horizontal bars flickering across the screen or a random pink flash (happens occasionaly but the black bars are 97% of the flickering). It seems to be that my screen is not properly connected.

I have a solution but it is a really lame and unefficient way of fixing it.

When i am watching a livestream or playing a game the screen does NOT flicker. The fix i have right now is: opening Twitch.Tv (gaming streams) and just leaving it open in the background when i'm doing stuff. This works verywell... My screen does not flicker at all, but ofcourse when the wifi drops or i am not at home i obviously can not watch a live stream, causing it to flicker again.

So at this point i am convinced that the screen flicker happens because of the low prestation when i am not using things like a livestream or a game.

Is there any way to fix this? As in... a background application or settings fix.

(i will stay active in this thread and i can post printscreens if needed.)

Note: i have 3 years of warranty so when i finish this school year (few months left) i could always bring it back to get it fixed. It is not possible right now due to the fact that i need my laptop everyday and i can not afford to lose files.

Thanks in advance for taking your time on reading/ trying to help.

In order the remove viruses I restored my laptop to favtory settings. But when my laptop was trying to install windows again it was stuck at 10%. And after a while it said there was an error. And asked if I want to restart the laptop. So I did. But when it starts now it shows up the lenovo logo and then it goes black en then the logo shows up again. This keeps going. I can go in the bios setup by pressing 'F2'. Does anyone know how I can fix this? Help is needed.

I have a Lenovo G530 laptop that has an issue with screen flicker that is getting worse. The computer screen will start going thru a crazy screen flicker then will stop and start again. I have already checked cable connection to lcd on motherboard and reseated connection of lcd to motherboard located under the keyboard as someone suggested in another posting I found online that resolved issue for them. I am starting to think it might be a bad inverter or screen because I have hooked up laptop to external monitor and it is running fine with no flickering happening when the flickering is occurring on laptop. I am attaching a link to a small video I shot of the issue as it is occurring on laptop screen. Does anyone have any further suggestions? Bad inverter or screen? Screen flicker vid

"Bad inverter or screen?" Yes, most likely. But which one? Cutting in and out like that, I have not seen.My thinking is the inverter is cheaper, so I try that first. It is still possible that the cable is faulty, though. Not much help, I know.

Lenovo Thinkpad X200, around 5 or 6 years old, used every day for past 4 years. Screen has started flickering. No black screen or white outs, just flickering very quickly/lightly, but very obvious.

Tried to check ribbon cable to screen and it seems ok. Started and restarted computer with battery in and out, checked PSU/plug with my spare set and both ok. Changed from 50hz to 60hz resolution and screen still flickers.

Have checked lenovo help site but caught no joy.

Does this sound like the screen needs replacing or the inverter needs replacing or is there something obvious I've missed ?

Apart from this screen flicker it works fine.
 

A:Solved: lenovo thinkpad x200 screen flicker

It sounds a bit as though the backlight is beginning to fail.

Does moving the screen back and forth make any difference. If so it may just be the connector to the motherboard that has worked loose and needs re-inserting.

Hi, I recently bought a Lenovo Y700-15ISK. I'm really satisfied with the product, until I started bringing it to school. Since the laptop is pretty heavy itself, I assume that it probably takes a lot of heat/pressure while walking around on campus. I bought this laptop at the end of March 2016 (still under 1-year warranty), and I didn't see this defect until school started in August. I noticed that the screen started developing yellow-ish tinted spots near the edges of the screen. So I did some research on the internet and found out that its a form of LED damage caused either by heat or pressure. The spots don't appear in the beginning of each usage but comes back once the laptop starts heating up. Whenever I massage the area, the spots seem to fade but only for a short amount of time. The yellow spots are particularly very noticeable in a black and white image as the yellow tint is the only source of color. I stopped bringing my laptop to school hoping the stains would go away to no avail. Questions: Is this a valid reason for me to use my warranty and return the product? If so... I bought this laptop brand new off Amazon. Would Lenovo's 1-year warranty still hold?How would the process work? (where to send, who to contact) If you've had this problem and know how to solve it feel free to tell me! Thanks

Hello guys. I have Lenovo Ideapad Y700-17isk and when i buy it i have lags: Screen flicking. after two months of agony I solved the problem in the following way: 1. Im download Intel HD Graphics BETA driver on Intel site.2. Unistall current version, reboot laptop.3. Turn my internet connection off.4. Install BETA version of Intel hd graphics driver.5. Now screen flicking is gone. I dont have any lenovo software on laptop when do this actions. in windows has disabled the automatic loading of drivers and software for the devices. Windows 10 have been downloaded and installed again. That is, at the time of the fix I was not factory Windows, preloaded with drivers and software from Lenovo. Do not install software from Lenovo as this too can cause flickering in the model. You can put only the necessary drivers for the chipset, Nvidia graphics card, touchpad, camera and also to update the BIOS, worse than this model of laptop data items do not. The fact that the problem is related to the function of power-saving integrated graphics card (1 watt savings lol). This function was why removed it out of the panel Intel HD GRAPHICS, but some utilities, Lenovo is present and it can cause flickering. peace <3

To get straight to the point, I have a Lenovo Y700-17ISK and it has a black screen when attempting to turn it on. The power button is lit, and the keyboard flashes once (keyboard turns off after flash) when initially pressing the power button. The only indication of it being on is the power button being lit. Hard Drive is not running, fans spins briefly (5-10 seconds), and the power button stays on. Is this motherboard failure? Thank in advance.

Yes indeed there is an antiglare film attached to the display. You can remove it using a hairdryer, carefuly to heat it up and remove the film. There is a video on youtube doing that, but it needs attention as not to destroy the display. But if you remove it you are going to have at least 2 times more reflection on your screen

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 cm˛ 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!

A:Lenovo Y700-15ISK screen issues

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.

But when i shut it down again have to do the same procces again and again until it turns on and it doesnt always work. The only way to keep my pc on is to put it in sleep mode, never turn it of completely. Can someone help me with this issue? Thanks!

I would like to know if for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y700 Gaming Laptop, taking off the glossy screen protection (which makes the image blurry and shows the colours on the screen not really good) does void the warranty or not? This is quite a decisive factor for me, in comparison to the Dell Inspirion 7559, which doesn't have this issue, as only after taking off this screen protection, the screen actually becomes very nice. Here is a video, so you can understand what I'm referring to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4UatgJxohY Minute 4:40 - you can see how this guy takes the screen protection off.A short answer of yes, or no in regards to voiding the warranty by doing this, would be sufficient.Thank you

The only way I am able to fix this is buy putting the computer to sleep multiple times and then wake it up back again and after once or twice it starts to work. The solution (fool-proof) is to hold the power button to shut it down and then start it up again.

I bought this laptop a week ago and (yes) I updated all my drivers(including NVIDA GPU) and windows updates. I also don't have that many background apps running.

Hi all ! I am new here so please be patient I just bought the new laptop (Lenovo y700) at the beginning of 2016s June and unfortunately have some problems with it. I run it about 3 times and see that the battery drown horribly fast - for web searching is around 1,5 - 2h (no cloud apps and heavy using). I know this laptop have really good battery, which should give us around 6-7h searching on web and 2h on really heavy using (you know - GAMING LAPTOP). Additionally sometimes my charger not charge after plug in. Sometimes is goes to 98% and that's over. Sometimes battery will charge to 100 %, then I turn off the laptop and plug off the charge - after turn on system shows 90% of battery (**bleep**?). The second thing is a screen - a little bit of bleeding just lead from the bottom of it. I don't think so that's normal. The last BONUS one. How I said the laptop is new and as a new I bought it. On this site lenovo said about guarantee to 27.02.2018 for me and not to 2.06.2018 how it should be. What's wrong? With this laptop Lenovo offers 2 years guarantee and I have the same on the bill from the shop - that's authorised Lenovo's shop. I really need your help and want to know if I can give this laptop to the service and guarantee is including my problem. Thanks in advance for your help. Greetings,DamienM

A:Lenovo y700 screen doesn't wake up from sleep

Hi bouga ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Checking on the support site for   Notebook IP Y700-15ISK I7 , seems no BIOS update needed for this model. 
Typically even on Win Vista and Windows 7 that issue with sleep has been related to hybrid features. 
 
Method 1 : You may try to disable it using the cmd elevated for the command  powercfg -h off . 
Check on this video link for the guide steps 
 
Method 2 : Setting Power option to High Performance instead of conservation mode . then manualy setting sleep on the start icon 
 
Continue to apply neccessary updates that may correct this issue but for the time being , you can use Method 2 as alternate solution if method 1 fail to correct it. 
 
Hope this helps.

Hi,
I bought this laptop 3 weeks ago. it's an intel i5 M520 with 4GB ram, 500gb hdd, ati radeon graphics, windows 7 64bit.

It crashed 3 times so far, and everytime after an hour of using the laptop only in battery while using the integrated video card. I didnt try with ATI card to run on battery. But I always use ATI when I am using an external monitor while it is plugged and it never crashed then. It did not crash when i was switching the graphics card.

I had to push down the power button to shut down as nothing was responding.
Havent installed anything complicated other than phpeditor and ftp filezilla, mozilla, chrome.

NOte that i reinstalled Windows to factory settings again using OneKey Recovery.
And to my disappointment it happened again and Today instead of being frozen it went to blue screen and restarted auto. Here is what the windows problem solver showed. What should I do? Take it to a service center, i have warranty. Thanks a lot in advance for your help. I also attached the .dmp and .xml file in .zip format.

I have a lenovo ideapad y500 with a 1366x768 screen, and I am looking to pop open the screen, and replace the panel with a 1920x1080 screen. Assuming that I purchase another 15.6 inch screen (size of the original screen), is this possible? A model of the y500 is sold with a 1080p display, and the graphics card in my model is more than capable of outputting such a resolution. I was just wondering if there is a chance that the connections between my laptop and new screen would not match as I do not know if there is some sort of standard port with screens. Thanks!
 

A:Screen upgrade lenovo ideapad y500

You would need to find out the exact model of the 1080p screen was that was sold with that model and order the same one or compatible replacement model. Laptop screens are not universally interchangeable and you can't just buy any screen and connect it.

I have lately been encountering some problems in which my lenovo laptop's screen would completely freeze up with no response to inputs afterwards. An intense buzzing sound can be heard from my headphones when this happens. this usually happens when i am gaming and requires me to force shut down but I do not recall this happening before. any ideas of what's wrong?

Well first of I would run a disk check since it has been hanging,  Right click on Start, select Command Prompt (Admin) and in the command windows type: chkdsk /f   Press Enter and type Y to schedule the scan for the next boot, and then restart the system. Once that is complete I would check for an updated video driver at support.lenvo.com Does it only occur on a particular game, or just any game?    If just one game, have you checked the game boards for anyone else having that issue?       Also check to make sure your laptops vents are clear of dust, and use a Vacuum to clean them if needed.

Hi all, this is my first time posting into the forum and I would like to apologise if i have made some mistakes  anywhere so please bear with me.The laptop screen turns black after moments of usage and after a few days of using it the problem slowly disappears on its own.After two weeks, I reset my laptop and the problems came back. The screen turns black and all the  activity going on behind stopped instantly. I searched for solutions anywhere and I can't find one, the only thing i can do is holding the power button on and off again. Setting the display to never sleep and turning on screensavers won't solve the problem either. This problem frustrates me very much. Does anyone else have this kind of problem? If so, anyone has any solution regarding this problem? I would appreciate it greatly if there's any solution

I am having this problem with the Edge 2-1580 when running on battery power.  Screen shuts off after 15 - 45 minutes of use and I need to hard reset by holding power button.  Seems like a lot of people with different models are having this problem, but no solutions.  I've tried updating BIOS, drivers, factory resetting, adjusting power settings, all to no avail.  I tried chatting with live support last night and "Chris" had me download the Lenovo Solution Center program and do a hardware scan but of course the scan came back with no problems.  I can't believe with so many people having this problem that Lenovo hasn't come out with a solution.  Sorry I can't help more, but I hope you find an answer!

Brand new Ideapad, started personalising it last week. Today I get black screen on start up. It has power and seems to be running, it even accepts CDs and runs them, but screen stays black. Tried all the function keys to see if I could bring it to life, but no luck. Anyone got any ideas? Of course it is Saturday and IT support not available from Lenovo.

Hi. Just a few days ago, I purchase a 14.5 inch wide Lenovo IdeaPad 100s. I also own a TEAC Screen/Monitor, which I connect them together with a HDMI cord to have dual monitors. Recently, while I was playing a game on my computer, my screen just flashed white, and stayed white, but my other monitor (which I have them to be extended for more room) was completely responsive. I turned off my computer by holding down the power button until the charging and power button were both off, then switched it back on. Instead, the computer appeared to be on (the power and charging lights were switched on) but the screen was just blank and black and my dual monitor (the TEAC television) acted as my one and only monitor. I logged on and went to my settings, to check if there were any signs of my laptop screen working, but there wasn't it only said my TEAC monitor was the only screen I had. Any help of what I can do?  (NOTE: I use Windows 10)

Laptop is running on Windows 10. Yesterday I updated my AMD graphics driver using the update tool from AMD. After all the necessary files were downloaded and installed, I was prompted to restart and I did. Upon restart, the laptop would not boot past the Lenovo screen. The white circles that rotate always freeze and it just stays on the Lenovo screen upon every attempt to boot. I can't enter safe mode or the bios options, what can I do to fix this?  P.S. A few months ago I began having an issue with the sleep mode. When trying to enter sleep mode, the laptop would just shut down unexpectedly and almost instantly. I'm not sure what caused this issue, but I've just been avoiding it by shutting down instead of sleeping. Not sure if this has anything to do with it, or if the restart was interrupted by an unexpected shutdown.

Hi there, do you know the solution for this?

A:Screen flickers, Lenovo Ideapad 500s-14ISK

Hi Lruth,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
We are sorry to hear that display is flickering in your Lenovo idea pad 500s-141SK.
 
Please do confirm which operating system is running on your laptop.
 
Check in BIOS if issue persists.
 
Confirm if flickering happens when you are closing and opening the lid.
 
Best Regards,
Poojitha.

Hey all, sorry if this is the wrong spot for my post but I'm new around here. Yesterday, my Ideapad's battery malfunctioned when it was around 20%, and when I tried to plug in the ac adapter, it wouldn't charge. Eventually the battery ran down to 0, and now I'm stuck with a dead battery and laptop. Is there anything I can do? I initially thought it was the charger, and I ordered a new one, but even the new charger won't charge it either.

So basically, I just got this laptop (well about a month ago) and ever since the third day, at completely random times the screen goes blacklit. I have no cursor control or keypad control, i changed all the sleep settings to never and nothing seems to be working. I have to completely restart the laptop to do anything again. On the reiliability report it usually says windows stopped working or was closed unexpectedly. Other than this problem, there is literally nothing wrong with it, it works perfectly fine I am very frustrated as I bought this laptop for university  Any help will be greatly appreciated.
