Flex 2-14 - Warranty: Replacement policy

Q: Flex 2-14 - Warranty: Replacement policy

Hello,
I want to know the warrant policy regarding the following issues:
I have a Lenovo Flex 2-14 laptop.
Will my warranty be void, if:
1. I upgrade my RAM to 12GB by making use of the two provided slots. 4 Gb Ram the implicit one and adding another 8 Gb Ram.
2. If I dual boot my laptop with Ubuntu Os.
Kindly let me know the warranty status in both the cases.

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.)

Hi wavare_ajinkya ,

Welcome to the Community Forums.

As a general rule, CRU (customer replaceable parts ) will not void the warranty as listed from the hardware manual . However most upgrades on this model shows that such are considered FRU (field replaceable unit) , meaning you would have to open up additional parts and might require skill and specific tools thus CRU ID is N. (item6 page 72 ).

1. Upgrading your RAM however would not void any warranty.
We had same issue discussed on this thread .
On quotes: " Similar to this query is this case for the Z500 replacement of optical drive which is also a CRU Id - N and this thread.


Warranty agreement :

What this Warranty Does not Cover
- failure or damage resulting from misuse, abuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, natural disasters, power surges, improper maintenance, or use not in accordance with product information materials
-damage caused by a non-authorized service provider
-failure of, or damage caused by, any third party products, including those that Lenovo may provide or integrate into the Lenovo product at your request

Warranty is not covered if during the process of modification , damage or accidents may incur both on the replaced parts and the original devices ."

The answer would be no , upgrading the harddrive ,RAM will not void your warranty not unless that original parts gets damage because of or during the process of upgrade.

For best measure , you may give Lenovo Tech a call so that they would be able to note it on your account for the pc that you have plan for upgrades .

2. Changing the original operating system would not void the hardware warranty , but support for the software such as the new or original Operating System (example to restore it back/ drivers issue etc.) would be users responsibility and functionality thereof.

Hope this answered your query .

Regards

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?

hi frustrated09,
 
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.

Hello, I had a failing hard drive that was replaced in warranty just a couple of days ago. However the hard drive that was installed on my computer is not a new one - CrystalDiskInfo reports it has been turned on 450 times. Is that a normal policy to send refurbished hardware as replacements?  Also, I've noticed the hard drive does an unfamiliar clicking sound when beign used. (and since it's the same hard drive as I've had before, I assume the usual working sound should be the time, which it isn't)Check disk and CrystalDiskInfo don't show any errors though, so I'm not sure if it's a bad sign or not? I will definitely take it to the authorized repair shop that did the HDD replacement but I still thought I'd ask here. Thanks in advance.

They told that they will have to keep the laptop, Check it and inform me within 2 or 3 days. But they didn't so i contacted them after 7 days and then they told me that the Laptop's Motherboard needs to be replaced and that they already ordered one from the company. But 15 days gone still no Contact from their side. I'm worried whether they r just fooling me round and round or Do Hp take This long time for The replacement.

Hi,
my battery recently reported permanent failure, it was under warranty so I contacted Dell support to request a replacement. I've provided all the necessary information and had also ran some diagnostics, the person I was in contact with was happy with all the information provided and informed me that they'll send me a replacement.
Few days later he messaged me the below. I'm not quite sure why they need my whole laptop for this, I'm not really happy to have it collected and kept by them for what I can imagine will be several days if not  weeks. Is this a normal course of action for faulty battery?
"I forgot to tell you that the warranty on the system is Collect and Return, which means we have to collect that system and have that fully diagnosed and checked through our repair team. "
 Thanks.

A:Replacement of battery under warranty

It depends on the system you have.  If the battery isn't user-removeable (i.e., it's inside the system rather than easily removed by sliding a latch externally),it's not a user repair and you will need to return the system to the depot for service.

I receive a Smart Drive error of "Immanent Failure, back-up immediately"... and of course its been telling me this for close to 2yrs now. my Question is this, "Is my Hard Drive covered under its manufacturers warranty or HP's warranty?". My Laptop is no longer warranted by HP but the manufacturer has a 5yr. warranty on its internal hard drives and my hard drive isn't 5yrs old yet. The HHD I'm referring to came installed within my laptop at the time I purchased it. Anything else you need to know? Thank you.

I guess this isn't a Yoga-specific question but wasn't sure where to put it. I'm ordering a replacement AC adapter for my Yoga 3 Pro on the lenovo.encompass.com site. But there's nowhere to enter the serial number so I can order it under warranty. I get to the purchase screen and it's going to charge me full price. I've entered my warranty info on the main support site, but when I get to the parts site it doesn't recognize that. Basically, how do I order the part under warranty without having to pay for it?

I replaced the flex video cable of a HP g60-230us laptop but the screen now shows only a black and white large bands. When connected to an external display everything works fine. Before the replacement of the cable the screen showed a blurry grey pattern of dots and lines. Now the black and white large bands are quite sharp. It has a Win Vista Home Premium, but I cannot find the Hardware Diagnostic Tool. The HP Total Care Advisor, Troubleshooting tool does NOT show anything wrong with the screen of the laptop. How can I understand if the problem is the cable or its installation? Or if the problem is maybe in the video card or the motherboard? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance,-fabstr64

A:no video after flex video cable replacement

The fact that external display is OK rules out the motherboard. If you have replaced the cable and still have a distorted image or bad image then it is the screen panel itself.

This is an fyi about the final resolution of this issue.  After a lot of arguing dell sent me what was supposed to be the touchpad but what I got was only the plastic palmrest no touchpad. Then because it's a "daughter card" I got more argument about the touchpad.  I got hot enough that I opened up the back, lifted out the battery, took out the two funky looking screws and the whole pad just fell right out of the machine.  The buttons seemed fine so I screwed it back down, put the battery back in and closed it up.  It's now great, the button was indeed hung up on the edge of the plastic palmrest.  This is a very well designed inside machine, it all screws down and all connections are with plugs or ribbon cables.  I wrote back to dell and told them they need to fire their tech manual writers because they're idiots, a monkey could have done this.  Apparently it is not easy to find only the mouse pad it's generally sold with the palmrest from what I can tell.  This whole machine is so well designed I scratch my head why the cpu isn't socketed unless they decided there was no room for a socket etc, which I can see that argument.  So if your mouse pad quits try popping it out first it may just be hung up.

Hi all!

Windows 7 Pro 32 bit on a domain

I've NEVER seen this before and I cant figure it out.

I have a group policy set on an OU named LAPTOPS. The policy gets applied, however the User Config\Windows Setting\Scripts\Logon DOES NOT. When you run the GPRESULTS on the laptop, I see the policy settings being applied EXCEPT for the LOGON script. Its not there. I dont see any errors and cant figure out why Windows would ignore this one setting in the policy but apply the rest. I've tried deleting and recreating the policy but that does not work. Also made sure I did a GPUPDATE /FORCE

Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone This the with look the policy the but policy Changes RDP intact Dameware of is topic is concerning Group Policy and RDP and the workstations are VMware machines and or Physical running Windows Professional with SP The goal here is that we created a VMware windows machine that we want to RDP into and therefore rather than going to the VMware console we can Reboot Shutdown etc as it is needed from the Start Menu In our environment there is one policy that does change the nbsp Start menu and Taskbar nbsp Any workstation that a user profile logs into from these two selected OU will have only LOGOFF from the start menu and the under logoff the under that Disconnect or Lock are your only two options nbsp Defined here in Group Policy I have created a brand new RDP Changes the look of the policy but with Dameware the policy is intact OU and then blocked domain inheritance and also the user profile does not have any policies applied to it nbsp I also added the advanced feature of Deny to this user ID so that it will not be affected by the Start Menu that only gives Logoff only when you click on the start menu As a test I went to the VMware console and also Dameware and then tested going to this machine and wala there are no restrictions to the start menu - It has Shutdown Restart Logoff etc nbsp However when we use RDP then it will go back to reverting the start RDP Changes the look of the policy but with Dameware the policy is intact menu back to Logoff only nbsp Based on this we can clearly see it is RDP but I am uncertain why Can anyone shed some light on why RDP would produce such a result

Hi all,
I received this message when i tried to look at the local group policy setting on one of my machines (Windows XP SP3), which is joined in my domain.

note that I am local admin.
It's all started when I was troublshooting WSUS connectivity and i looked at the WinsdowsUpdate.log, the WSUS server was <Null> & WSUS status server <Null>, I tried to force the domain GP by using GPupdate /force, it went fine and asked to

I searched the internet nothing related to my case.
Thanks in advance for advising.

Hi alxnz , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would you have the machine number from the sticker or get it from here so that we would be able to know specific details and upgrade possible for your RAM . Just keep the serial number confidential.
 
Offered FRU list from the hardware manual would show specifications of memory you would need and you can download it from the support website (type in your machine type then choose the documentation tab ) .
 
Update us as soon as convenient,

Hi, I need some help here. My laptop is the Flex 2-15, 20405 (Intel chip) It was stepped on and the glass is broken; I want to replace the whole assembly. I've tracked down part numbers, and it seems that three fit the Flex 2-15. My problem is that the model 20405 seems to be HD 1366x768, and the FRU from the parts manual (5D10F86071) is advertised as a FHD 1920x1080. I just figured this out after ordering from Ebay. Question; will the FHD unit work with the MB in the HD? If this is using Intel's on chip graphics, it should work, right?  It's been a real pain finding the right FRU and LCD. Amazon vendors show the correct photo, but the parts arrive and the bezzle is all wrong, and corrisponds to an Edge 2. I've had to go to Ebay...

I have two problems.First thing is that my RAM went from 4GB down to 2GB. What happened is I went to change the RAM because I want to upgrade. I took out the RAM that came in the laptop and put new DDR3 corsair vengeance 4GB x2 but when I went to start my laptop, it starts beeping 3-4 times and there was no display.  Now I put the original RAM back in and left one DDR3 RAM on the extra RAM slot and it worked. However, it says my RAM is 2GB. So I'm meant to have 6GB of RAM but it only displays 2GB but I normally have 4GB without RAM upgrade. Please help, would really appreciate it

A:Flex 3 15" ram upgrade

Hi Kaungie ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Do you have the Machine number of your pc to check on specific details?
Would that be Flex 3-1570 or a Flex 3-1580 ?
 
Anyways , checking further on the hardware manual and products sheet for both , showing Max 8GB x 1 slot . 
Checked on version of BIOS and no particular change on RAM caps but instead for other fixes only.
 
Memory :  8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket
 
I would not suggest you purchase a 16 GB just to try but if you have a spare , no particular harm .
It would just either beep and and not proceed to power on self test (POST) or it would detect it.
No guarantee thou but if you have a compatible spare or have a local tech /IT to test it.
 
It is worth a try ,in some models (Z series) worked fine since the CPU can handle more.

I upgraded my Flex 3 to Windows 10, and everything seems to work, but I'm getting extremely annoying "freezes" with input. For example, if I move the mouse (touchpad or separate USB mouse) around continuously, it will freeze for a moment once every few seconds. The same thing happens with the keyboard. It doesn't happen at all at the lock or login screen immediately after a reboot, it only starts once I log in. This first happened after doing a Windows 10 Upgrade from 8.1, and then again happened after doing a clean install of Win10. Has anybody seen anything like this before?

A:Flex 3 15 - Input lag in WIn 10

Typing it out helped, I guess, because I was able to track down the source of the problem. The source of the issue is FMAPP.exe, which is part of the Realtek HD Audio Manager. I can't figure out what FMAPP does, though, so i just renamed the file so it can't be run, and everything is fine. Realtek doesn't even complain about it being missing.

In addition, I feel like the graphics might be messed up because at random the screen just goes black(I have Intel and nvida graphics. Without the power button I have to wait until the laptop dies. Any help? I am planning to send my pc to the shop because I cannot trust lenovo anymore, and I do not have the box. Is the frozen black screen fixable?

I have no idea what might be wrong with your screen, sorry, but I might have a solution for your power button. I was thinking a spring connecting the power button and the on switch inside of the pc might have been knocked out of place. To fix that, try wiggling the power button around in it's socket.

Hi everyone, nice to be  a new member here. I'm currently using a Flex-15, that has been doing OK over the last few years, aside from ghost touches early on, then the touch screen died (still using 8.1).  Thinking of getting a Flex-3  80R40011US (i7/256 SSD/M940), but many reviews seem not so kind, and I am really torn about what to do.   I really like all of the features of the Flex-3, but reading of the black screen/shutting down issues, bad battery life, etc has me concerned.  The black screen shutting down is really a concern, even say after reading potential fixes here, and worried I will have a computer that can not be made to work properly...  Really don't want to get into a mess, right off of the bat, and can't afford to take a 15% restocking fee plus return shipping.  Is this issue over represented here, or do all owners experience this issue?  Is there an absolute 100% fix for this issue? Also would like to know about the display quality.  I had a 17" Y700 that had a golden cast, and despite a lot of fidling and BIOS update, it could not be corrected...  I hated it to be frank, and wonder if this type of issue, and/or other display issues are found in the Flex-3, with the 15.6" display? Thanks a lot for your help and insights, look forward to your replies.

Hi community! I have several issues with my Lenovo Flex 3 and I'm not sure where to start to find solutions. 1. Every time when I close my laptop, it automatically switches to a tablet mode and when I'm opening it back, start menu is showing, which is annoying. I can disable autoswitch to a tablet mode, but why would I disable a feature that is one of the basic features of the laptop. So I'm wondering if anybody has an idea on how to resolve it? 2. There is an input icon in the taskbar showing the current input language. After switching to a tablet mode and back, this icon disappears. It's getting back after laptop reboot though. 3. Touchpad scrolling in some applications works rediqulously fast, it scrolls like 10 lines at once. I'm not sure if it's a laptop issue, OS issue or the application itself. Any thoughts?Thanks

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?

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)

I purchased a new Flex 2-15 online the past week. The model name shown on the back is "20405". Manufacture date is May 12, 2014. The User Guide refers to a "Novo Button", which is shown in diagrams as being on both the left edge and the right edge near the front. Neither location has a button of any sort. The right edge has a pinhole in the supposed button location. A curved arrow icon is next to the pinhole. I have an inkling this may be some sort of factory reset button. Lacking the Novo button, what is the procedure for accessing the features which the manual says are accessed by pressing this non-existent button?. That is, BIOS, and/or the one touch image backup/restore system?

I have no idea what's going on. It was fine and then just says "plugged in, not charging". I only got this about a month ago. Wanted to see if anyone knows of something I can do from home to save the hassle of driving a few towns over to the warantee place.

I have a Flex 2-14 and I need a part. It attatches to the motherboard via ribbon cable and it's the circuit board with the power button on it. I cannot or don't know what part number to look up, any help would be appreciated.

A:Flex 2-14 - Need a Part for my computer

Hi smbainter , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It's best if you have the machine number from the sticker or check it from the parts lookup page, where you can also get the particular Power board part number and power board cable. 
 
As example I used Machine Type - Model 59418273  LenovoFlex2-14GPGRTXI54210U8G1288MUS from partslookuppage  giving me :
Part number : 5C50F76769 Power Board W Flex2-15 CARDS MISC INTERNAL 
Then checking on the FRU list of the hardware manual, shows Item number 5 page 71 on the dissection figure . 
 
To verify herewith is the service training guide for video referencing the part you are describing as power board. 
 
Update us how it goes for you. 
 
 
Regards

Greetings,I was getting one of these as a gift but noticed they only have 2GB of memory while running Windows 10 64-bit. The specs say they have 2GB of DDR3L-1333 memory so is it safe to assume this can be expanded?  The sales person at the local electronics place said it was as there are also 4GB models of the same but those do not have the SSD drive (i.e. 4GB memory + 500GB slow 5400 HD vs. the 2GB memory  + 32GB SSD). Thanks!

I'm just out of warranty for my Flex 14. Last week I started noticing the smell of melted plastic, and the monitor started to flicker. Sent it to repair, and the tech guys told me it it would need a full motherboard change, as the videocard was overheating when an external monitor was plugged in. The weird thing is that the part melting is visible just below the screen, not where the rest of the motherboard is. I can't find if separate pieces of hardware in this case have different warranties. My videocard is: Intel HD 4400. Help? It is really annoying that my computer started to melt just after my warranty finished.

I have a Gateway Flex Desktop PC and over a period of a year or so I have been having more and more problems getting it to start up When I turn it on the power button lights up but instead of the normal green it displays a green and a red light combined The only way to get it to finally boot up is to flick the surge protector switch on and off until the system seems to catch and finally boot up as normal I feel this may have something to do -win. Xp Gateway Flex Not Up -will Start with the BIOS instructions or maybe a weak lithium battery on the system board I am sure that flickering the power is aweful for the system but it has gotten to the point that the system will not boot up if I dont do that Is this a common problem with this particular machine Once it boots up it runs fine so I just try to avoid shutting it down but that is not always an option Hope somebody out there can help

A:Gateway Flex -win. Xp -will Not Start Up

Do you have a model number? I'm going to go out on a limb and say you have a sticking/faulty power button. To take that out of the troubleshooting equation you need to take the side off the computer (change the battery while you're at it). Trace the wires from the power button to the motherboard, and remove the 2 wires. Using a flat-tipped screwdriver, quickly touch the 2 pins then remove the screwdriver. If it remains running, then you know it's the switch

So I am having an issue.  I plug in an external HDMI cable and my flex 3 recognizes it is connected..  On the screen resolution page is pops up a grey box with a 2 display.  So it obviously detects the projector.  However, it does not display anything to this screen.  If I try duplicating or extending the display, I still get nothing.  If I go in to the settings for the secodn screen it is blank field in the resolution tab.  If I click on it, it stays blank and has no selection options.  The main screen is 1920X1080 and the projector supports that as well.  Is there any other setting or menu I might need to access.  Is this an Nvidia thing?  Thanks for any help.

Hi Weymere , 
 
 
Welcome to th Community Forums. 
 
Utility Software such as Speccy, HWINFO and CPU-Z would base it from its own database using the identified chipset and its features can handle and not the physical hardware as is what is declared in the product specification sheet (8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket ) .
 
Similar discussion here and here for further review.

On a Lenovo Flex 14 Ideapad, and out of the blue, the touchpad stopped responding, and the volume on all sounds went to zero. A volume level adjustment indicator bar appeared upper left, pegged to the bottom (zero level). The F3/volume-up key will raise the volume, but it immediately goes down. Thinking a piece of debris was wedged in there, I have used air cleaner around the F2/volume-down key, repeatedly restarted the beast. I don't need this key at all . would like to disable it if I can't fix it. the volume rocker on the side doesn't do anything. Any ideas or help?  As is, the computer is useless unless a USB mouse is plugged in.  Apparently the F2/Volume down key interrupts preempt the trackpad, so no cursor control is possible. screencap:  http://1drv.ms/22nPDGs

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.

Every time i try to create a group i have 2 options 2x1 or 1x2. I downloaded the updates of 22th of November but the problem persists. Do i have to use ATI adapters? Do i have to use 3 identical monitors anything i want? which monitors i can use and how i can setup the eyfinity?
