Q: Lenovo Flex 4 15" Battery

Does the Lenovo Flex 4 15" have a removable battery?

Welcome to the Community Forums.

Based on the hardware manual page 36 , battery is internal and is considered FRU (field replaceable unit). Removing it would require opening the base cover.

?

Hope this help answer your query.

I have a Lenovo Flex 2-15. It operates with or without the AC adaptor being plugged in, so I am quite sure it does have a battery. I could not determine how to display a battery level indicator or icon which is a common feature on most laptops. I just couldn't find such a thing on this machine. I loaded an app called "Lenovo Settings" (version 3.111.0.0). When I click on the Power Status tab, I see a battery icon with three dashes, a status messages "No battery Installed", and "AC adaptor is attached".  [ When I unplug the adaptor, it still says it is attached! ] So, several questions:   - Does this "Lenovo Settings" app really do anything? Is it compatible with the Flex 2-15?   - How do I see the battery status?   - Did I accidentally uninstall a utility? Thanks for all the help in advance.

Hi everyone. I recently purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 14 for school and general purposes. In general I really like it, but I have noticed that the battery life is not like the 9h (or was it 6h?) that were advertised. I am getting around 2,5-3,5h of battery life, while I'm doing some light tasks like surfing the web. I should also note that this is with power saving mode on. Have I gotten a bad battery or is this basically what I can expect with this product?  You can see the specs in this link: http://www.prisjakt.nu/produkt.php?e=3019464

A:Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 14, poor battery life?

I have the same problem. Probably lasts an hour on a full charge. Piece of crap laptop and Lenovo should recall this garbage. I wouldn't recommend any of their products.

I am currently using a Lenovo Flex 3 1470 and the keyboard for it stopped working and now I can't type any numbers or activate any function keys. I have spilled tea on my laptop and got it wet in the past so I am now looking to get my keyboard replaced.  I have managed to find some Flex 2 14 inch US keyboards on eBay for less than $20 that look exactly the same as the one on my laptop, but I can't be certain unless someone confirms.  Are the 2 keyboards the same?

Hey guys, first time here and I just want to inform you that I'm not a genius so please talk like you're talking to a 9years old kid..

So my problem is as the title says.. Well it started when I opened my laptop from sleep mode then it was hanging up and then it suddenly turned blue with sad face.. I didn't read the problem clearly but i remember it saying a problem about "kernel_????_????"..

I tried to hard reset my laptop cause it was taking so much time then it ended up stuck on the logo... Now I'm the one with the blue sad face...



Hope you guys can help me as soon as possible., thanks in advance..

A:lenovo flex 15 is stuck on lenovo logo

Right, you mentioned it turned blue with a sad face, that is a Blue Screen of Death (or proper term is Kernel bugcheck) which indicates something has gone wrong.

I am looking at buying a Lenovo Flex 14 at a reasonable price but Im struggling to find if I have options that I want for HD.
I was going to go with a 1TB Hybrid drive but Im hearing bad reviews on them. The SSD that comes with it isnt near enough storage for me.
Then I thought, I could keep the SSD for the OS if I could install and additional HD for storage.
Can anyone tel me if there is a slot for an additional drive either as M.2, NGFF, mSATA or with an expansion using the optical drive slot?
Lenovo isnt very forthcoming with information on this that I can find.
 

A:Lenovo Flex 14 additional HD

According to the reviews I have read there are different versions of the flex 14. Some come with a 128Gb SSD, others come with a 500gb HDD. Also in the different version there are different CPUs. None of the reviews mention an optical drive and from the appearance of the case I see no ports that you could install one. Judging by the size of the case it doesn't appear to have a slot for a second hard drive.

I am looking to get a decent stylus so I can take better notes using my Flex 4, but I have found that none of the active stylus on Amazon say that they work specifically for the Flex 4. I contacted support through web chat earlier and they informed me that if it says Lenovo Yoga 900, it should work. If it's marked for the Yoga 900s, would it still work? Does anyone happen to have a suggestion for a stylus that will be primarily used for taking notes and writing in general?

hi synes55
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
When you press the Power to turn it on start hitting the Fn+F2 and F2 only simultaneously.
It should get you to a bios settings
   Go to the Configuration tab and look for the "Hotkey Mode" option Toggle that to Disable the hit F10 or Fn+F10 to save and Exit
 
It should switch the use of F keys to legacy
 
Hope this helps

Not sure whats going on with the website, I entered in my serial number to make sure I was getting the specific drivers.  But nearly all the pieces of hardware have two different drivers. I havent had to download any yet so far since I havent done too much.  But, when it came down to video card drivers it listed Nvidia drivers and when I tried to install it it said that the compatible hardware was not found. Shouldnt there be only one driver? I mean.. maybe multiple versions, but they are listed completely different so I would believe they are different drivers completely.

I can't believe that the battery would just stand for appr. 3 hrs after full load on my Flex 2-15 (< 2 yrs old) considering this environment:
- running W10
- HDD replaced by SSD
- shutdown / battery saving features enabled like shutoff screen, turn off HDD after 5 mins
- typically running only on 60% brightness
- AV-programm with small footprint ( just NOD32 AV)
- no background active apps except mail
- 99% just browsing and mailing ( once in a while some youtube videos or lifestream)
 
Any suggestions? Battery already semi-dead ? Or are there any improvement hints around?

I have been looking at video,s on youtube but need more hardware advice. My Lenovo flex has boot up issues. On turning it on you see the usual start up logo Lenovo and then nothing else happens. I started with checking if it was the battery and took that out. (There is no warranty left on this) switched back on and still the same. Then went on to check the hard drive and was told to remove this and switch back on. Now I see boot menu manager as there is now no hard drive I'm not sure if this is indicating if it was a hard drive problem. This is where I need advice I will put the hard drive back in while I am waiting on a reply.

To whom it may concern,
I have a Lenovo Flex 2-14, and had problems with Lenovo Transition after I had upgraded my operating system to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1.
Simply, Lenovo Transition stopped working in stand and tent modes.
Here is how I have fixed the problem.
Step-1: Uninstall Lenovo Transition and reboot your laptop.
Step-2: Install Lenovo Transition 2.1  from http://lenovo.support.com/tr/tr/downloads/ds101908
Step-3: Open Device Manager under Control Panel and update the driver for Intel(R) HD Graphics
Step-4: Make sure that Ctrl+Alt+Down Arrow rotates the screen 180 degrees. Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow will bring the screen to its normal position.
Step-5: Bring your laptop to the tent mode and check if the screen rotates.
I hope this helps.

Hello,I have been facing a problem with my Flex 2 15 after windows 10 home upgrade.I've set the power options to do nothing when I close the lid, sometimes I close the lid and open it to find the machine shut down. This doesn't happen everytime though. Has anyone else had this problem before? Edit: I also noticed that after I start the laptop again, the battery conservation mode is disabled -which I normaly keep on all the time-, could this be related to the issue? Edit 2: I noticed that this happens in conservation mode -since the battery is not charging- and when I press a certain area under the laptop. I guess it's a loose battery. Is this common in this model? Edit 3: It's not a power issue. whenever a certain area right under the ventillation opennings below is pressed the laptop goes off. Any body ever experienced this?

hi im new to the forums and i cant figure out how to make a new thread but i have a lenovo flex three and i bought it to take notes on it but my capacitive pen wont write, i try and draw a line and it just glitches out and graws dots and dashes and has never drawn a solid line thus far. Using my finger works fine but i would really like to write with a pen
 
Mod's Edit: Added additional information to Subject line and moved post to its own thread.

A:Lenovo Flex 3 - Problem with capacitive pen use.

Hi Space,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo community!
 
Usually the pens that work with capacitive screens have a soft rubber tip or what looks like a smooth metal mesh tip. They mimic the use of a finger on the screen, but with a bit more fine control. Machines with active digitizers, on the other hand, work by completely different mechanics and offer very fine control. Hence you try with different stylus to confirm which is defective.
 
Let us know how you get on.

My Flex 3 recently started shutting off when it gets unplugged. It works perfectly off of the battery and I am able to plug it in while it's on without issue; however, as soon as I unplug it, it shuts off and then freezes when I try to turn it back on forcing me to manually shut it down and turn it back on. I'm currently using Windows 10 and have been for a while so I don't think it has to do with that. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Somebody can tell how can i make a hard reset to my lenovo flex 2 15" i dont have the one key restore key i need help my laptops always is loading

A:Lenovo flex 2 hard reset!!

You might not have to totally reset your computer. Try these options first 1) Check to see if you have any memory cards, usb flash drives, or disks connected to the computer. ANYTHING. No wireless mouses. No USB headsets. No CDs in the optical drive. NOTHING that is not the power cable should be pluged into or in your pc. 2) Boot up in Safe ModeHold down F8 on your keyboard before you turn the computer on and hold it. You should be able to use the advanced recovery options. More info on this here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17419/windows-7-advanced-startup-options-safe-mode. Uninstall all of your recent programs or ones that should not be there (i.e, you dont remeber downloading it, or its not nessesary for you). 3) Recovery PartitionHolding F11 on start up supposedly gives the option of a recovery partition, yet I've never used it before, or know if it'll fix everything. Might be worth a shot. 4) An actual reset.To answer your origional question, here's all the possible ways at: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12415/windows-10-recovery-options Hope this helps!

I've had to send my Flex 2-15 out for repairs, and it either came back missing screws or they've fallen out in the meantime. I really don't want to have to deal with Lenovo support again. I've looked up the parts and it shows that it's a repair technician fix only. Ideally I would lovee for Lenovo to just send me some extra screws, but again, the support received thus far has left a lot to be desired. Searching the forums, someone mentioned they've used (on their Yoga 2), M2 5mm screws, or even the 6mm. Can anyone confirm this screw type could work for the Flex 2-15?

I turned my laptop on this morning and the fan will not stop running. It is quite loud and turns on as soon as you hit the power button and never revs down. I have tried Battery Saving and Balanced mode. I have run several diffferent diagnostics through the Lenovo app and made sure my Window was up-to-date. I also used the Lenovo app to try and blow any dust from the vents. The laptop is not over heated or working overly hard. Any ideas on how to make it stop?

HI,So I got a Flex 2 15 for Christmas 2014, after about a year the display would sometimes flicker with a red tint and the image would look like it had burn-in. If I closed the lid and opened it back it would go away.Last week the same thing happened but this time its permanent. My display is stuck with this red tint and screen burn in.I tried support but as my luck would have it its out of warranty. I youtubed how to do a disassembly to get to the LCD connector to see if it was a loose connector but it wasn't. Is there any fix for this short of replacing it?Any help would be appreciated.Thanks. Attached is a photo of what I'm experiencing.

If you haven't already, hold the power button (about 5-10 seconds) until the machine shuts down and then you can turn it back on. You can also substitute this step with taking out the battery.

I turned my Lenovo laptop on Friday to see the usual splash Lenovo on start up and then nothing else happened it kept continually doing that and going no further. Just so you know my laptop has no warranty left as I got it last Christmas second hand. I have been looking at demonstration videos on you tube and what I have tried so far is. I plugged in an external usb keyboard and got into bios and checked it was detecting my hard drive and it was. The next step I did was disconnect internal power/ battery and did the hold of the power button for 30 seconds to 1 minute  with the power cord connected only. And it was still doing the same. I then got advised to remove the cmos battery turn on laptop and then back off and put the battery back in. This has also failed to work so now I am looking for help here as I don't know what to do next and am hoping someone here has a different suggestion for me to try and hopefully get my laptop back up and running.

Welcome to the Forums Bevvy! 
 
Press Windows+X.
- Select Device Manager.
- Find the Touchscreen driver under Mice and Other Pointing Devices>USB Touchscreen Controller(A111).  You're going to uninstall this and check the box that says "Delete the driver software for this device".  Don't worry, it won't blow up your computer.
- Restart your computer.
- Re-open the Device Manager, and confirm that the Touchscreen is now listed under Human Interface Devices.

Hey everybody I have Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit on a Lenovo Flex 2 - 15 machine. When I installed the windows the bluetooth was present and fully functional, but not having any WIFI functionality. After some strugling, I've finally managed to utilize the WIFI functionality, but I lost the Bluetooth after the installation. The "Wireless" entry in the "PC settings" doesn't exist! But I do have a "Bluetooth USB" entry in the "Device Manager", and in its status field it says: "This device is working properly." However in the bluetooth application (btmsrvview.exe) it says: "Error initializing local bluetooth device. Please make sure Bluetooth is enabled."I really don't know what I might have missed, Please help me

Has anyone had any issues with their Flex 3 laptop getting stuck in sleep mode?  I've called Lenovo support twice about this issue.  The problem was not fixed at all on the first attempt.  After the second attempt....I thought they fixed the issue; however, it still happens but less frequently.  Just purchased this laptop in February 2016 and I'm about to throw it in the trash!

I purchased flex 3 5 months back but from few days occasionally, the screen goes black (backlight is still on)  while I'm using the computer, as the hard drive stops whirring and the computer itself seems to go to sleep. However, the power button nor the keyboard can seem to wake it up and I end up having to do a hard reset to power it back on. Oddly, the power and battery lights are still on and I can still switch on the keyboard backlight. This happens even when the battery is above 50% full. Please suggest solution for it.

My Lenovo Flex 3 randomly stopped connecting to Wifi at my house. When I first got the device it worked just fine, then a week later it just stopped. The weirdest part is, it's not that my computer is unalbe to search for my home network but it's as if my computer doesn't even posses the ability to connect to Wifi. When I go to newtork settings, there isn't even an option to turn wifi on or off. This ONLY happens at my house and no where else. I'm currenlty on a wireless network at work and I am able to turn wifi on/off. Has anybody experienced this? Thanks

Hi everyone, I'm hoping you can help me. I've had my Lenovo for just less than two years now. It's already had to have it's screen replaced, due to a faulty connection, but recently I've been having more problems with it.Yesterday, the screen started to flicker with a green tinge. Sometimes lines appear, and the green tint fades in and out, and then disappears for a while, before returning. I had been hibernating my computer for a while, and had recently updated to Windows 10, so I thought perhaps it was to do with an update, or a problem with the graphics card. I restarted the computer, and that resolved the issue.However, when I hybernated my computer again, and then started to use it today, the same thing happened. This time, the flickering and green screen resolved itself quickly and disappeared...But I am concerned regardless. I tried plugging my computer into a different moniter, and the green flickering did not appear on that one. However, moving my screen does not seem to have any effect, or be the cause of the flickering. I would really like to avoid having to send my laptop into Lenovo for a fix, or a screen replacement, as I rely on it for work...Is there a software issue, or an update, or anything like that which could perhaprs resolve the issue?Thank you everyone!

Hi, I recently purchased a refurb Lenovo Flex 3 1480 model and I am starting to see problems with the display that others have noted on here.  It sometimes flickers on and off and occassionally completely turns off and will not come back on without a restart.   So in troubleshooting this issue I have upgraded my BIOS to version DCN32WW from DCN28WW.  This was more difficult than it sounds because for some reason the PC identified the older DCN28WW as the newer firmware.  I had to override the setting in the BIOS to allow it to install the "older"firmware DCN32WW.  Made no sense. The latest thing I am trying to do is update the Intel VGA 520 display driver to the latest version published on 7/16/16 ver. 20.19.15.4454.  I downloaded the installer from the Flex 3 1480 section of the suppport site. When I try to install it, however, it tells me it is not compatible with my device.  I have tried uninstalling the driver and then installing the newest one and it still won't install.  The driver currently on my machine is 20.19.15.4364.  Can someone explain why I cannot get the newest display driver to install on my laptop?

Please help! I've been using sleep mode for pretty much the entire time that I have had this laptop (one month plus).  This is the first time I sent it into sleep mode for the evening and awoke the next day to find that the laptop refuses to wake up.  The keyboard will light up merrily along with the power button, but the screen will not turn on.  The fans are also running full tilt.  I can hear them running loud and clear, which is abnormal as during normal operations I cannot hear this machine running at all.  After having a jet engine for a previous laptop, this was one of my favorite features of the Flex 3. I have tried doing a ton of different things to get the laptop to wake up again including power resets and using the Novo button.  Nothing has worked.  If I could get at the battery and motherboard battery without voiding my warranty, I would.  My only solution is to try to run the battery down by leaving it on with the keyboard lights as bright as they will go and let the fan run like a jet engine.  Hopefully this will drain the battery in faster than the 4 days that everyone else was reporting.  Anyways, I don't know how everyone's Flex 3's lasted that long on battery anyways.  Mine kept turning itself on. The point of this post is to ask what I can do so that this issue never crops up again.   I love this machine, but if this becomes a recurring problem, I'm going to have to can it and g...

Hello all,

I have a problem installing windows 7 on my new windows 10 laptop. I find it very weird how I change settings in the BIOS to support all legacy stuff like windows 7 and I try to boot from USB all the way to dvd and nothing works. What I mean is when it is done booting, it says " No drivers were found" and there's not a hard drive for me to choose windows 7. It's weird though because there are windows 7 drivers on the official support page, yet I can't install it?

I just need to see a hard drive listed but nothing pops up, and yes I've formatted it already using diskpart.

Hi Eftroy,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo community!
 
Wait for the machine to boot into the 'Automatic repair couldn't repair your PC' error message.
Click the 'Advanced Options' button
Open cmd and type:
bootrec /fixMBR
bootrec /Fixboot
bootrec /rebuildBCD
And also
chkdsk /r c:
chkdsk /r d:
 
Or else
 

Turn on the computer. 
 Wait for the machine to boot into the 'Automatic repair couldn't repair your PC' error message.
Click the 'Advanced Options' button
Click the 'Troubleshoot' button
Click the 'Advanced options' button
 Click the 'Startup Settings' button
Wait for the system to reboot into the 'Startup Settings' menu (is the same menu for safe mode)
Select the 'Disable early launch anti-malware protection' option. (Press '8')
If this worked for you, you should now boot into windows.
Now you can shut down your system and it should hopefully work first time the next time you start the system

 
Let us know how you get on.

Hello Lenovo Community!  I purchased a Lenovo Flex 2 14" Laptop last Saturday (6th of September 2014) and I noticed when using it at night time that there was a yellow tint coming from all corners. This yellow tint isn't really noticeable when on standard applications with a bright colour but when watching films or viewing dark images it is really noticeable. I returned the laptop to the store (PC World) and they happily provided me with a replacement, however the same problem is happening with the replacement which I got today. I have included a picture below which shows the tint when streaming a film on Netflix, as you can see it is really noticeable and not something I have seen with any other Laptops I have purchased. The same yellow tint appears on dark images or applications, not just on Netflix.  Has anyone else expierenced a problem like this before? Is this expected? Or have I just been extremely unlucky with the two laptops I have been given? Thanks for any support/advice, Shane

I just purchased the Lenovo Flex 3-1480 yesterday.  So far so good in my initial observation of this 2 in 1 laptop. Except for the wifi. We have the AT&T gigapower speed with the Pace router with 2.4 & 5 ghz wifi dual modes.  I checked with AT&T and they advised that different devices can have different speeds if the hardware or drivers are old or not up-to-date.  AT&T has stated that everyone won't get 1ghz speeds (disclaimer says up to 1ghz).  So, I have another Lenovo 540w laptop that I use for work and it is getting 330 mbps download speeds for the 5ghz wireless and 500+ mbps download when connected with the ethernet cable to the router.I connected the Flex 3 directly to the router with the ethernet cable and tested at speedtest.net and received 320 mbps download speed.I went to speedtest.net and ran a test on the wireless and the best I could get is 30 mpbs download speed.  I noticed that the flex 3 would only connect to 2.4ghz.  When I tried to connect with 5ghz, I received and error that it would not connect.  So I searched on the Lenovo website for updated wifi drivers and found newer drivers.  My current driver was for Intel AC-3165 dual band wireless adapter version 18.12.1.2 date 7/29/2015.  I dowloaded and installed version 19.10.0.9 date 9/28/2016, rebooted and saw some improvement.
