Hello, I have had my Y700 for 2 months. Right from the start I had the issue where it wouldn't seem to boot up, and I would have to put it to sleep a time or 2 before it would start windows. This problem seems to be solved. However, after installing the windows 10 anniversary update, the laptop will randomly 'freeze'. The keyboard will not respond, but I can still use the mouse. When I try to restart, the screen will go black, and it will not respond at all. I have to force shutdown with power button. After turning back on, it will work for 20-30 min and then do the same thing. I did a total reinstall of windows 10 and have updated bios to the 37, but it is doing the same thing.  Lenovo Solutions Center does not detect hardware issues. Can someone please help me? Thanks! Here are my specs:Y700-15ISK TouchBIOS: CDCN37WWRAM: 16GBHD: 256 SSD

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.

In the first week with my Y700, sometimes, when the pc started, the touch screen just didn`t work and i had to reboot in order to use this functionality.

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. But you can see it also, througthru all the bottom and right edge.??Thank you for any advices.

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.

A:Y700, Black Screen of Death

Hi, There's 4 lights at the front of the laptop, you should have the two left hand side lights on, power, and battery, these should be solid white, or the second light (battery) may be orange depending on the battery level. Have you tried Fn key + up arrow? I.e. make sure brightness is all the way up? If so try the opposite (Fn key + down arrow) because I have a laptop that Windows 10 install made the brightness levels reversed. If none of these work do you even get the Lenovo symbol during startup? If not and the laptop screen has never turned on then you have a dead unit and need to swap it our for a new one, contact the retailer for an RMA. CheersMatt

I think the best course of action in this scenario is a system restore.
 
If you get a BSOD after that also, then it is a hardware failure and most probably the motherboard will have to be replaced under warranty.

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, there is something wrong with this model. A lot of other people have had the same issue where the laptop will no longer boot after a long sleep or shutdown. There is a BIOS update that is being released sometime by the end of the month to fix this issue. I do not know if Lenovo has a USB flash function, but if they don't you should probably exchange for another or wait for the BIOS update, so that you can flash the new BIOS as soon as you get the replacement.

HI all On this idea pad when the pc boots there is nothing on the screen . No splash screen, no bios.  No post    All that happens is that the screen flickers between a light black screen and then a darker one .  I tried doing the 30 second power button trick and connecting it to a tv via hdmi and vga but the TV states there is no signal . After this I took apart the laptop and removed everything . I then removed the cmos and jumped the jack but that still didn't do anything . I took out the internal battery and tried the power button trick and still no joy  The laptop is only a month old . Does anyone have an idea what's going on with it or is there any special keys I cam press on start up to try trigger a diagnostics .  Any help would be greatly appreciated

After a few secosds (like 15 - 25) the windows is booting. I figured that when i disable my dedicated grapghic card in BIOS that problem doesnt occur.

Hi Lenovo Forum, Yesterday when I started my computer it showed the lenovo splash screen and the screen then turned black and nothing happened. I tried restarting the computer etc. but nothing seemed to help, so I decided to do a complete reinstall of Windows 10. Everything went fine until Windows Update installed the IntelŽ HD Graphics 4400 driver. About 80 % into the insatllation it plays the windows sound of something getting unplugged and the screen turned black (like before the complete reinstalllation and format). I have been able to get into the computer again by forcing it to shutdown and turn it on in safe-mode and disable the IntelŽ HD Graphics 4400 driver. I have tried to install an older version of the driver but it did not help.Therefore I am asking all of you if you have experiened anything like it and if you have a solution? Best regards,Rasmus Villebro

A:IdeaPad 500S - Black Screen During Normal Work

Hi Yanov,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
A number of things can cause your screen to be blank. A suddenly black screen accompanied by what appears to be a completely unresponsive computer is, most often, a symptom that your computer has crashed.
 
And the most common cause of crashes is overheating
 
Your computer needs good ventilation to avoid overheating. Make certain that the ventilation holes aren?t blocked by dust or other debris. It can be due to running a CPU-intensive program or game continuously for a long time. If the latter is the case, you may need to take steps to provide extra ventilation, or cool the air flowing around or through your computer.
 
The graphics or video card can go bad, which may cause a blank screen.
 
Problems with the motherboard can cause a computer screen to go blank, as can a hard disk crash.
 
Try doing these things:
 
If your screen still doesn?t light up after cooling it down, connect your computer to a different power outlet and reboot the computer. If you have an extra monitor lying around at home, switch it with the current one to see if your monitor is bad.
 
If you recently made changes to the computer?s hardware, uninstall what was just added and restore the system. If this still doesn?t get your screen to work, try restarting it in safe mode. This can be done by pressing F8 once the computer begins to boot up. Select safe mode by using the arrow keys. This will bring t... Read more

Hi HK,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power and try to access BIOS to reset it. Below are the steps to check and resolve the issue.
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
If the issue persists even after performing Flee Power then resetting BIOS to its defaults should resolve the issue
Now access the BIOS menu press ?F2? when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the computer is starting up.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now Click on ?F10? Key to safe the changes that are done in BIOS, restart the computer and check if the issue is resolved.

 
I hope the above information helps.
 
Regards,
Shashi Kumar

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?

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.

Hello So a while ago I posted about a problem I was having that caused my laptop(fairly new 1.5 months now) to randomly crash or go in a blacklit screen mode where the only option to get it working again is to hard reset it. I think a lenovo community memeber posted up a fix that i should download (Intel Management Enginer Hardware .. something like that). That fix did not work and then I tried the suggested method by a customer which only worked for a week. I also contancted lenovo and allowed them access to my computer and all that was done was updating the drivers.  My warranty is for a year and I would have to send it to get it fixed My questions are, is there anything else I can do myself to resolve this issue?If lenovo cannot solve this issue what can be done about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I just started university and I often find I fall behind on some programming for a course because I cannot bring my laptop to school as it is pretty much useless

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?

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.

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. Maybe this problem is related to a software update (my computer is set to automatically update any windows software) because it just happened in the past 3-4 days, not exactly sure when it started. Does anyone else have the same problem on a similar device? Laptop is an Ideapad y700, bought it in November.

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.

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.

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

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.

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,

Go there and update the driver, once you?re done restart your computer and go to the synaptic?s settings and everything should be sorted.

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:? ?

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

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!!

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.

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?

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.

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
