Stuck on secure boot limbo on my Ideapad Y700 afte...

Q: Stuck on secure boot limbo on my Ideapad Y700 afte...

Hello, I've been trying to gain access into my laptop after installing SteamOS for awhile now, but now I'm in this sort of secure boot loop. I'll go step by step in what happened. May laptop was using Windows 10 prior to this problem 1. I installed the SteamOS files and then unpacked them into a USB flash drive 2. I went into the BIOS by Settings > Update & Security > Recovery > Restart Now and then entered firmware. There I disabled secure boot. 3. I then booted the USB and installed SteamOS. After that, I restarted the laptop and went back into the bios and put secure boot back to enabled. 4. Now I'm unable to boot my hard drive or USB. Every time I try to boot up, it says something along the lines of "Unable to boot because of secure boot policy". How do I get out of this limbo?

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.

Dear all, After the latest, mandatory, Windows Update, my wifi card stopped working. I have fully resetted the laptop (clean instal with the NOVO button) and then it works - until the Update is installed again. I've tried installing the newest drivers - 19.0.1.1 - no effect. I've disabled and uninstalled al WAN miniports (my supplier told me to try that) - no effect. My supplier (Paradigit from NL) says that they're not responsible... How can I fix the wifi problem? Kind regards, Luuk

Lenovo 500-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) wont wakeup after sleep I have a Lenovo 500-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) with Windows 7 64bit. I noticed a problem where the computer will not wake up after sleeping. The light turns on and I can hear the fan, but the screen remains dark. This is getting really annoying, as I have to reboot my laptop every time this happens. I have already updated a bunch of drivers to no avail. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Also why there is no updated BIOS; energy management driver for windows 7 but only for windows 10?

so i was givin an HP DV7 laptop free. they said if i can fix it then its mine. it currently has windows 7 installed but its not genuine. i asked the guy whats up with it and he said they sent him an upgrade in the mail, upgraded it but lost the product key. so i want to reformat it back to windows vista because i have the product key for it underneath the laptop. only thing is, is that the boot up thing isnt stored on the computer, so i need to find a way to work around this..

You can order a set of Recovery disks from the manufacturer - around $25-50.
Or you can install using a retail Vista Home Premium disk, and the COA Key on the sticker that should be on the machine.

You could also (assuming that the machine has a readable COA sticker) purchase an Upgrade for Win7, and use that for a clean install (cost depends on edition of WIn7 you purchase)

Hello,
I own a PC with windows 8.1 and was attempting to boot into safe mode. Now my monitor says out of range. I cannot get into safemode or normal mode and I am stuck. I'll turn on the PC and hold shift+f8 and it brings up a startup menu but can't seem to get the monitor working.
I've tried 2 other monitors and get the same response, also tried messing with settings on monitor but did not have an option to tweak display settings. Not sure if this is the right place to post.

i don't know if i have a virus or my pc has just given up, hence i am unsure as to where this post belongs.
i am using xp pro which has a cable connection via a router which is wirelessly connected to a laptop. The laptop is fine but the pc seems to be stuck. i pushed the button to turn it on, the 2 lights lit up near the switch and another light for the E drive and nothing else is happening, no noise or flashing lights. so i have power. this happened the other day and i ended up turning it off at the socket and while it was off i turned off the pc switch then turned the socket back on. It was then off so i turned it on as usual and all was well until today. Have tried same thing today but no response. Wondering if anyone has any ideas. Security wise i use Shredder, Zone alarm, spybot, spyware blaster,ewido and avg.

I am extremely upset because I think I have just ruined my laptop through trying to perform a BIOS update which LENOVO provided through the website.I had recently reset my computer to factory settings via the ONE KEY RECOVERY button. After basic setup and startup, I decided to install the BIOS update Windows 7 64 Bit for my PC. I downloaded the two files provided: public and private, and moved on to first click on the public file. This opened up another application with various options which the README file provided no information on.Anyway my computer began to restart itself and perform some operations to which it is now stuck on the BOOT MENU.Each time I turn on the POWER ON button, I am directed to the BOOT MENU, and I have no option to use my computer as normal.Please help me on this.

New to this forum - appreciate any help. I've seen an old thread on this similar topic but not the exact same error type (forgive me if I did miss something). Every time I try to update itunes to the latest version (v9.2) it downloads the new version and when it goes to install, I get the attached network error - "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable" (I'm not on a network). It also happens when I try to uninstall. If I try to browse for a source manually (not like I know what I'm looking for), it says that I'm missing the itunes.msi file. I've tried to attach the errors in a word doc but I'm new and I can't tell if it worked.

I've looked at older threads on other forums that mention the same problem and say to get the Microsoft Windows Cleaner Utility - everyone on the posts say it works but when I go to get the utility from Microsoft's website (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301) they say they don't provide it anymore because it damaged other components.

Now I'm completely stuck, can anyone help me before I wipe everything clean and start over?

Hi guys, I'm having this weird problem with my PC that I've been troubleshooting for a while now, and I can't figure it out.
 
It doesn't seem to happen every night, but more likely 2 out of 3 nights, my PC seems like it's going into a sleep mode or something, that I can't wake it up from. Looking through the event viewer, I can see events up until 12:13 AM, then there is literally nothing until 8:31 AM, where it says that the system has booted up. I assume 12:13 is when the computer went into this weird limbo mode, and 8:31 is when forced the computer to reboot. The weirdest part about this whole thing, when this happens, my entire network goes down. My router loses connection, taking down my access points connected to it. Once I boot my PC back up, connection re-establishes, everything is all good.
 
This for the most part only happens overnight, but it happened again this morning around 9:50 AM. So that's twice in the same day
 
My computer is set to never sleep, hibernate is not enabled.
 
This was happening to me on Windows 8. I downgraded to Windows 7 because I couldn't figure out the problem, and it went away entirely. I recently upgraded to Windows 10, and the issue is back again.
I'm at a loss here, I don't know what else to check.
 
Any ideas?

A:PC gets stuck in limbo overnight, takes down entire network with it

So this has happened about 4 more times since I posted the OP. it happened again at 12:13am, not sure if that is significant. the other times seem somewhat random.
 
I thought it may have been something to do with the WiFi USB dongle i had plugged in, but it still happens without the dongle plugged in.
 
Any advice?

OK Guys I'm seriously stuck here, I've tried everything I possibly can but nothing has worked so far.

(I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium)

I installed Avast! 5 Free yesterday, I heard good things about it and wanted to try it, so I installed and it was all fine but then I started to notice a lot more system slow down than before, so I went to Uninstall it and Re-install Avira

I used Revo Uninstaller which told me it had successfully uninstalled it, and told me it had successfully cleaned up all leftover files

Did a re-boot and what the heck, the Avast shield icon is still there in the bottom right hand corner, so I check to see if it shows up in any of my "uninstall program" clients, Nope, I put on Hunter Mode in Revo Uninstaller and go to the icon, it wont let me uninstall because it says the system files do no longer exist, it wont let me terminate it.

To make things worse I have no way of stopping it starting up when I start windows, and I cant install any new Anti-Virus because any new AV thinks its still there!

I have tried everything, if I go into system files the folder is still there, but despite the fact I am Admin and only user and have full rights and privileges it wont let me delete the folder as it says I do not have sufficient rights

I have tried some clean up methods, Auslogics, Ccleaner, Chkdsk in CMD


What else can I do :(

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?

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!)

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.

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!

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 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.

Ive had this laptop for a month and its been working fine i guess. Some problems here and there but i can fix. Ive noticed this laptops lid is very wobbly and when i close my laptop to take to school, the lid is not intact/closing all the way. Its not touching the keyboard/trackpad of the laptop when im holding the laptop upside down. Im pretty sure this doesnt happen with my other laptops ive had. Could it be loose screws or is this normal?

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

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

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 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:? ?

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.

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

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.

So I have had this computer for around 5 months and have had little issue with it. All of the sudden my keyboard stopped working. I tried plugging in an external and that was working fine. So I tried to fix the internal one, but as I was looking up the solution my computer blue screened on me. I restarted and it came up with a menu that asked if I wanted to boot normally or etc etc. When I tried to hit enter the keyboard did not function so I had to restart again. Keyboard and computer was working fine. Then later the same thing happened. Internal Keyboard stopped working and soon after the computer blue screened. Next time it happened I closed out my programs before the crash and hit restart. It got stuck on the restart screen for a long time and I had to restart again. I have checked the harddrive, ram, and even did a fresh install of windows 10. This problem is still occuring and is very annoying. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, but it doesnt seem to work. Anybody have any ideas on what could be the problem?

Hi I recently bought an Ideapad Y700-14isk. The model is 80NU000WUS. I am having issues with the battery. Since the first day the battery life has been very poor. While using windows 10 power saving settings, and also graphics options set to power save, I am only able to get 1.5-2 hours when running minimal programs and no games. I just use chrome to study but the battery life is incredibly poor. Has anyone else been having issues with the 14" version? I was wondering if the battery is upgradeable to a higher capacity, and where I could possibly buy one from. I understand its a gaming laptop but 2 hours on a full charge while studying power point slides in the chrome browser is just too poor for me. Please let me know if any of you have this issue, and if there is a way to buy a higher capacity battery. Any input helps. Thanks in advance.  I spoke to tech support twice and both times they seemed very clueless.

Hello, so I've had this laptop now for a week and I'm seriously considering returning it since I have 30 days. Every device has its quirks but some are harder to overlook than others.Twice now when playing games my laptop* keyboard has completely stopped responding. No keys or combinations of keys work.The game doesn't freeze and I still have mouse/touchpad control. Both times I'm able to close out of the game and hit restart, where it just hangs for several minutes saying "restarting...", so I have to hard shut down. Upon rebooting, everything seems fine. BIOS Version: LENOVO CDCN35WW, 3/29/2016*haven't tested this with external keyboard yet Digging through the event view I've found this in both cases: ?? Thank you so much

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.

Hello,I have a problem with sound -  hearing echo, which is caused by internal subwoofer. Disabling all sound effects (Control Panel > Sound > Playback, Speakers, Properties > Enhancements) solves the problem, but I also get lower sound quality (subwoofer gets disabled, lower volume, etc). Is there any way to solve it? I am using Windows 7 64bit with latest driver from Lenovo website.Sound quality was perfect when I was using Windows 10, but I just dont like them so Im sticking with 7.

I currently own and use a "Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop (ideapad)" . It is only around 6 months old, and I've run into my first major error. Issue : I closed the screen on my computer overnight, when I re-opened my computer in the morning, I restarted my computer, and now it won't turn back on. Details about the issue : When I try and turn my computer on, the power button lights up and my keyboard lights up for like 5 seconds, but the screen does nothing but stay black. After those 5 seconds, my keyboard doesn't light up anymore, but I still hear the computer fans running.  **PLEASE HELP**

Hello, it has been 2 days since i bought a lenovo y700 15isk, Model Name 80NV, MTM 80NV00CNRI and im having big problems with fans, they run very loud with no reason. When i start up the windows 10, for about 5 minutes it stays very quiet, but when i start using for example youtube or facebook ore something that does not need very much processing power the fans kick in immediatly, and never low down any more. It is very frustrating for me because i didnt exept a laptop of this kind to have this issues. I have tried to install all the drivers, but nothing helped.I read somewhere that it might be a bios issue but i dont know how to update this bios.My bios version is CDCN25WW, 9/4/15. Can anyone please help me, can somebody tell me is this bios version the latest one or it need to be updated.Can you tell me how to update the bios. Im very confusing now i dont know what to do.Thank You
