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
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
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!https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/Lenovo-flex-2-hard-reset/td-p/3442142

I got a Lenovo Flex somewhere around it was lightning fast apps opened just as Windows Flex 8.1/10 Lenovo after reset extremely and slow updates fast as I could click them and I jumped on the Windows deal just as soon as I could I loved windows for the first two months but after a bad update that forced my computer into endless reboot loops for hours on end I decided to go back to factory default settings and start over The system would crash to blue screen constantly even if I wasn't doing anything step away from the computer with nothing opened and come back and it had BSOD then tried to reboot and would land me in the BIOS settings menu I researched online and found that it was most likely my Lenovo Flex Windows 8.1/10 extremely slow after updates and reset graphics driver that was the cause of all this but I couldn't get to safe mode to fix it It eventually got so bad that it wouldn't even see the boot sector and I even tried to install Ubuntu Linux That failed as well because once again I couldn't see the boot sector or the hard drive which lead me to believe that it might be a hardware malfunction I was getting ready to ship it back Lenovo Flex Windows 8.1/10 extremely slow after updates and reset on warranty when a friend told me to shutdown my machine and reboot Lenovo Flex Windows 8.1/10 extremely slow after updates and reset while holding the zero key I did that and lo I got to my login screen where I promptly jumped over the safemode uninstalled the graphics driver and rebooted my machine It booted back up and acted normal except now even though it would still boot up pretty quick the rest of the computer is painfully slow I wondered if it might be a bad systems setting or something so I was trying all sorts of reg cleaners and whatnot CCleaner ADW but they weren't finding anything The other day my system BSOD again while I was AFK and when I got back about minutes later it was to the BIOS settings again I refreshed my machine and it was still slow so I reset it to factory default and back to Windows to no avail on how sluggish it acts I'm certain there is something that I am missing but haven't found it yet If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be awesomehttp://www.tenforums.com/performance-maintenance/32357-lenovo-flex-windows-8-1-10-extremely-slow-after-updates-reset.html

My keyboard and trackpad don't work for some reason.

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..
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.

Does the Lenovo Flex 4 15" have a removable battery?
Hi Forrest_Canton ,
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.

Hi Sir i have problem about Fn key on the Lenovo Flex 14it can't press F1-F12 directly because it must press the Fn+ these key.do you have the way for solve this problem? Best Reagard
Go to Solution.
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.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/Lenovo-Flex-3-Drivers/td-p/3346670

Good idea? Bad idea?
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.
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.
Hi all, I own a Lenovo Flex 10 and due to several circumstances I need to reset the notebook back to factory settings using the recovery partition. In the owners manual as well as in the maintenance manual there is pointed out to press the so-called Push-Button Reset. At the Flex 14 and Flex 15 notebooks it is described as NOVO button. Where is this button located at the Flex 10 notebook?Neither the owners, nor the maintenace manual shows any hints to find this button.Also there is no hint using any key combination (like Fn+F2 to enter the BIOS) to enter the recovery process. I also explored the Lenovo community and knowledgebase and the only thing I found was that misterious Push-Button Reset, where I'm looking for. So the question is how can I start the recovery process?Potentially is there any option in the BIOS? Kind regardsJoerg
For those still looking for the answer, try following step: 1- Shutdown your FLEX10 system2- Press F1 and hold3- Power on system4- Proceed with system restore/reset Hope that helpshttps://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/Flex-10-Recovery-quot-Push-Button-Reset-quot/td-p/1579098

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.

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.

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.
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.

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'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?

Welcome to the Forums.
Depending on the part / area where the missing screws are, yes, the M2.5 (4mm, 4.5mm) and M2 (6mm) will work on the Flex 2-15 as they're listed on the hardware maintenance manual.

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? It has been working for the past several weeks (it was purchased at the beginning of February) without this fan noise.As it sits right now, the CPU is at 5%, Memory is at 39%, and the disk is showing to be at 0%.

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.

I've had this computer for a couple months now and recently, my touchscreen has been on and off--sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't-- and I have no idea why. The touchscreen function just randomly stops working. I've tried searching for solutions, but to none avail. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Does anyone have a solution?
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
We are sorry to hear that touchscreen is not working in your Lenovo Flex 3.
Please do confirm which operating system is running on your laptop.

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!
I have slight problem with my Lenovo Flex 2 14" screen, there is a small blue line (about a inch long). It's only really noticable when the screen is dark (i.e. black). Any idea what this is, and how to fix it. Many thanks in advancehttps://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/Lenovo-Flex-2-screen-problem/td-p/3313753
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.http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forum/helproom-1/lenovo-flex-1-boot-problem-4602585/
Installed Windows 10 on it, and it didn't fix it, reset to Windows 8, no fix, upgraded to 8.1 and still no fix, all updates and drivers installed, tried the device manager thing, yet still no touchscreen response.

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.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/Lenovo-Flex-3-screen-shuts-off-automatically/td-p/3312829

Welcome in lenovo community,
Could you please attach screenshots from your screen showing the problem.
The touchscreen on my ideapad flex 14 laptop is not working. I've tried uninstalling the driver in device manager and then restarting my computer. I've also checked that all drivers are up to date. I'm on wondows 10 and I think it has worked since the upgrade (though I'm not 100% sure). Any ideas?
Welcome to the Forums Bevvy!
- 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.
Let us know how you get on.

My two year old Flex 2 suddenly wont turn on. The power button lights up and the fan starts but the screen remains black. I have let the power drain completely (you cannot remove the battery) pressed the power button for 15sec x 4 then connected to the charger and still a blank screen. the last timed I did attempt a "hard restart", everytime I held the power button a loud bleep occured which stopped when I let go of the power button. Its warranty has expired and im not very knowledgable. I am happy to send it away to be looked at, just dont know the best place to send it in the UK. Any help?N

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

Hi, Does anyone know where I can find the information if I can install an additional internal SSD disk in my laptop, in addition to the regular HD I already have? I know that I need to check the SATA ports, but where can I get this information and how do I see whether there is one free or not? Sorry for my ignorance . Also can I buy any internal SSD or is there something I need to consider? I was thinking about Samsung 850 EVO Series SSD - 1TB.Thanks for your help!!!Best regards, Michaelhttps://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/Flex-2-15-Laptop-Lenovo-Machine-Type-80FK/td-p/3358943
I have recently bought this model and having a problem with the touchpad. Instead of scrolling it will randomly cause the page to zoom in or out. Which is getting rather irritating. Could someone please tell me how I can disable this function. Many thanksModerator edit: Matched subject to content
I'm having this issue as well except on my Yoga 2 Pro. I have the pinch to zoom feature disabled (which is frustrating since it's a useful feature). Usually it zooms in when scrolling down, often to percentages between 800 and 900% view.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/Lenovo-Flex-2-14-touchpad-random-zoom-problem/td-p/1829200
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.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/IdeaPad-Flex-15D-Won-t-boot-past-Lenovo-screen-after-AMD/td-p/3367273
Hi everybody,After I reinstalled my operating system on my laptop- New licensed Win 10 with all of the updates, I have this problem, that whenever I use my laptop with power only coming from laptop battery, it turns of after I want to charge it, when I plug in the battery charger. This also happens when I plug my USB mouse. BSOD shows with message "Something went wrong, we are collectin data...etc". I checked my drivers and launched Lenovo diagnostics and everything is fine in report.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/My-Lenovo-Flex-2-15-turns-off-Blue-screen-of-death-appear-after/td-p/3379977

Keyboard is turning on and off when in normal laptop mode. the switching on and off is as though laptop is switching to tablet mode/ being turned. I think it may be loose keyboard wires. This started recently and can't relate to any software change or incident to system. Keyboard works fine when raising the laptop with a thumb while on table or plain surface.See the video I uploaded of the issue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbdehSyYGpghttps://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/Lenovo-Flex-3-1570-80JM-Keyboard-issue/td-p/3339676
